Monotube 31-2500 with no preload clips?

Anyone running the stock height monotube kit with no clips?
This is what Progressive suggested to me for about 1/2" lower stance...
How do they perform this way? Ride weight a big factor, I presume?

Thanks, guys!

I use one clip per side. Firm but still gives a little softness on bumps. You should be even softer with no clips.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

Mine is setup this way, I am 165lbs. I don't like it much, if I could tear it apart I would. Then I would put one clip in. I think I had at least 1" drop, as you can see by my yaffe burner sliders.

Another view, you can see how low the slider is on the fork. Normally the cuts in the fork would be much lower with some black showing I between. If that makes any sense.

And that lowered it an inch... Wow. Now I'm really confused!
Seems like I'm not getting the right info from Progressive maybe...

I'm running the stock height mono tube with no preload clips on a 23" front wheel. I'm running travel limiters to prevent hitting the fender but I rarely hit the stops and I'm 265 lbs. I called Progressive and told them my set up and my weight and they said no preload clips. They also said it would sit a 1/2" lower but its pretty close to what my ride height was with stock springs.
