Trial and error. Just write down or mark where they are currently. Next loosen or tighten the front only and ride. When you find a comfortable setting move to the rear and do the same.

The thread Remington is referring to about SimplyOrange posting was generally saying to soften the front so it will nose easier putting more weight on the front tires helping steering. There are to many riding factors for everyone to use this so your back to trial and error finding your "sweet spot".

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

one day ill have my buddy take a vid of how it handles. i can drift it in a 30' diameter circle WOT in second gear now, with the all soft suspension it just kept pulling the front up and pushing straight, and it had alot more body roll. it a good place to start but smooth is right, it will take adjustment for you personally. i dont like all the way soft in the front, just softer than the rear but thats because i kinda like riding it like my streetbikes.
