At the BOTTOM of the shock there is a golden screw. take a screwdriver and turn it counterclockwise until it stops. This is the rebound screw. When you loosen the rebound (all the way counterclockwise, the shock SEEMS SOFTER and it RETURNS FASTER, and it makes it feel like a softer shock, softer ride, though it is actually adjusting rebound speed.

The best setting for 130 pound person is all the way out counter clockwise then turn it clockwise until you hear 5 clicks.

DO THIS FOR THE OTHER FRONT SHOCK ALSO.

Ok, now the golden screw on the top of the shocks needs to be turned all the way counterclockwise till it stops and then turn it clockwise 9 clicks.

I'm running them on +2/+1 arms. I have cranked up the preload a little and they handle well, but I do not jump at all.

I apoligize for the pictures. My host went to crap and I lost the pictures. I'll look on my computer and track them down again so I can repost them.

I followed the instructions from this post and put on my YFZ shocks with a breeze!!

ALso put on gforce front and rear spacer. My quad handles like a dream!!!! Mostly trail riding and some small jumps but its totally different ride from before.

Thanks for the inputs.
