Rear Shock Settings

Does anyone know if each setting is meant for a certain weight and/or sag? For example, since the bike comes from the factory set at position 2, does that mean a person who weighs approx 150 lbs makes the suspension compress 3 inches (just making up numbers), so if a person who weighs 200 lbs wants that same amount of suspension compression, they would need to go up to position 3?

I hope my question makes sense...

It is a preload shock adjustment for sag. Which is basically the way you described it. The manual should have the settings in it.

I'll look for the manual online. I bought the bike used and didn't get an Owner's manual with it.
