I'm with Steve, set it up for the majority of your riding 
and your style.  I retained my stock springs when I 
installed the emulators and found it worked great for me 
since I rarely have a passenger.  Now that there is 25 lbs 
less of me than there was at the Durango rally, it's even 
better.  If I were you Paul H. I would consider going back 
to the stock springs and a 12.5wt oil mixture and I think 
you'd be surprised at how much better it was.
