    The information is on page 21. Right by the big shock picture. "From the factory, shock oil is set to 50W in the front shocks and 40W in the rear."

    Like I said -- and last time I checked in the literary world quotation marks indicate a direct quote, especially when I cited the exact page of the specific source -- it came directly from the manual on page 21. It was not from any set-up sheet, it is in the manual: "From the factory, shock oil is set to 50W in the front shocks and 40W in the rear."
