    Hello, I have a stock 2020 machine. Has anybody adjusted their front preload to the 1 setting, mine came at 2.

    I'm curious as on my Grizzly, going from 3 to 2 changed the entire feel of the machine from an aggressive stiff thing(used this for plowing) to a soft rolling trail cruiser(handy for our tight bumpy trails).

    I would just try it, but my small hand tool that worked for the quad doesn't seem big enough, so I'm wondering if I should bother looking into a better tool.

    Thanks,

    I had mine at 1 on the front, 2 in the rear on my base model gen 1. The riding I do is mostly on rocky trails, and that was my only way to soften the ride. Actually Rode good once I dialed it in. It did tend to oversteer on fast turns though.

    Thanks, I was pretty sure it would at least be noticeable given the difference it made on the Grizzly.
