A Wilbers Shock Question

I wish to purchase Wilbers Shocks and will be ordering the remote preload adjuster and I am up in the air about the adjustable compression adjuster (high & low speed). Any one out there have a opinion on this--my dealer says the more adjustment you have on a shock the better. The shocks come standard with 22 position rebound adjustment and the high and low speed compression adjustments are supposedly changed when the rebound adjustment is changed.

As Klaus at Wilbers USA will tell you, the average rider of an LT only needs the preload adjuster, which mounts right where the stock one does. Thats not to say you couldn't opt for the compression adjuster, but you likely just don't need it. Either way, put 'em on because they're great!

I have just the Pre-load adjuster and the bike really handles well.

The problem with too many adjustments is if you don't know what to do with them, they can spoil your day. If you know, they can improve the day.
