Stock shock adjustment

Anybody played around with the stock shocks much? Seems a little on the rough side seeing how most of my riding is rough wooded trails. Looks to me like the rears came adjusted to the soft or more open side. Not alot of adjustment left, but I've never adjusted collar types before.

The only thing that really appears to be adjustable is the pre-load, nothing that I can see to adjust anything else.

Right. I'm going to play around with them a little this weekend and see if I can soften them up a some. I find it strange that the manual (shop & owners) tells you how to do the fronts and not the rears. I could use instruction for the rears, the fronts are easy. Maybe the guys at the dealer can help me out.

I will take a look when I get home and see...I am almost positive that the only adjustments in the rear are pre-load.

Hey I'm going to put 28" mudlites on mine and I was wondering if I have to adjust them for the bigger size? I hear most people are stiffening them. By how much tho?
