Fork preload adjusters are an easy way to set the sag on the front forks once they are installed. The only reason I would put a set on my bike would be if I needed to change the preload regularly. The reasons being changing from road riding to track riding or regularly riding two up where you needed to compensate for the extra weight. If it's mainly you riding on the street, then you could just cut new spacers and replace the existing ones to get the sag set correctly. Either way, you need to take the fork caps off so it's up to you whether you want to spend $5 on 1" PVC tubing or $100 on adjusters. I touched on it in step 8 of my fork emulator and spring change thread. Racetech spring and Emulator Valve install
Everyone has the right to be offended but just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right!

Emulators control the dampening of the forks since we cannot adjust them like you can on my sport bikes. In my opinion adjusters are a waste of money unless for whatever reason you need to change the sag often. Keep in mine spring preload does not make the forks stiffer. Same go's in the rear
