The best way to start is with minimal preload and the valving backed all the way out. Keep adding preload about 1/2″ per time and take it for a ride to settle until the ride height is where you want it. Next fine tune the preload by 1/4″ increments until the ride and height is as good as you think it can be. Then start making major adjustments to the clickers to feel the difference. You want the least amount of dampening as possible so go back to the lowest setting and ride it for a while. Add a couple clicks if you want a firmer ride.
