2013 550 XP LE and I turned the front spring adjustment up 2 notches from stock and the rear up 1. Wondering what other people have theirs set on.

depends on your weight. I turned my 850's to the max and my 500's have spacers in them as the springs are soft. I am 230lbs but prefer the height over the plushness.

My 850 touring is set on the middle adjustment on the front and it is up one notch on the rear.

I am 225, I have mine in the middle. I prefer the slightly better articulation.

I want to know where I can find the tool to adjust the springs. Any suggestions?

^^ Just grab the adjustment sleeve with water pump pliers.

I have both my front and rear on the softest settings.... on HD springs! Even on the softest setting the rear doesn't sag with 2 people.

On stock springs I had the front halfway and the rears at the tightest setting.

I don't have water pump pliers, and I don't want to use channel locks or a pipe wrench. I really just want to know what size spanner I should buy.

The spanner sucks anyways, its too short to get enough leverage to turn.

EPI springs on the front, rear maxed out on the rear. EPI rear springs will be ordered soon. It's worth it. I wish I knew about these springs sooner.

Just dropped front and rear to the lowest settings. The Jccapri bushings tightened it up a bit.
