Your suspension needs to be spung and valved for your weight. Then it'll be compliment.

If you decide to work with the stock suspension, you'll end up maxing out the preload, then trying to compensate by over dampening the bike; making it the ride harsh.

Until you get the suspension set appropriately, with the correct spring rate and shim stack, you'll be under sprung and over dampened. Trying to fiddle fart with the clickers is just putting a very poor bandaid over the problem.

It seems like this question is asked on nearly a weekly basis and the answer is the same every time. Spend the money, get your suspension done right, enjoy.
