    Swinger 4-Way set up on Demo 8

    I just got my DEMO 8 PRO yesterday!!! I can't wait until after school to finish setting up the suspension and go riding. When I was messing with it last night I was trying to adjust the preload on the shock spring but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't turn the ring. Does anyone have any tips to get it to turn a little easier? Also I weigh about 200, and was wondering how much air I should put in the spv chamber. Any other tips are welcome too. Thanks!

    All you need to do is to extend the length of your c-spanner somehow.
    You want to create more leverage so that it will make it much easier to turn.
    Try something that is strong and is able to slip over the end of the c-spanner without coming off when you apply the necessary force.
