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.

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)
