Shock Preload


Active Member
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.
hd sets the preload on 3 from the stealer for 1 riderof 175 to 200 lbs .if you go 2 up i would set preload on 4 depending on weight of passenger
