solo to 2-up with 940's

I am looking at the 940's for my '12 Custom. My question is this...do you guys change the preload when going from solo to 2-up? or do you set a good compromise and let it roll? I ride mostly 1/2 solo and 1/2 2-up.

if you want to get the best ride out of the shocks that they can give you you will have to adjust the preload solo to 2up as you are making a big weight change. im sure that there is a compromise setting that may work for you but it will definitely be firm solo and soft 2 up, So take the time to properly adjust them and enjoy the improvement they can make.

If I am just doing a short ride two up I don't change the preload but if I am going to da long ride two up I change the preload. it only takes a minute.

thanks for the replies guys. It sounds like I'll be adjusting for long rides solo or 2-up. I keep forgetting it only takes a few minutes, unlike adjusting the air shocks.
