    I am looking for advice on setting the pre-load on a Wide Glide.

    I bought the tool and dropped it from 3 to 2 and it rides smoother. I am a 180 lb rider.

    If I ride two up, should I change it back to 3?

    I run 40psi in the rear all the time which is the two up setting.

    I would run it on 3 for two up. If you bottom the shock out either solo or two up, just raise it to the next higher setting.

    Mine was set to 1 on delivery. That first ride was a PIA until I looked!
