Not sure what they mean by the "Preload:10" for the rear? If it is clicks from hard, isn't that full soft as I thought there are only 10 clicks in total?

The factory rear pre-load is 4 (out of 12). Mine set at 8 and my suspension guy said he would not recommend going higher with that shock.

Try it and ride it... You are the only one who can make a determination if that works for you...

Set your sag and have someone who works on suspensions set it gor you. It's worth the 30-40$ to do it right the first time. Most people that answer these questions don't have a clue.. Most, not all just for the record :-)

The rear shocks are pretty stiff for me. For both the 08 cbr1 and 2012 cbr1 i have them at maximum soft preload. (~80kg rider with gear on)
