Hey guys,
looking for the best oil/preload combo for this bike, using stock hardware. I ride rocky enduro conditions, and weigh about 200 lbs. with all the gear.

I'm using a 2" spacer with 5 wt fluid at 120mm. Still a bit harsh on the initial portion of the stroke, but quite a bit better. Some of these guys are using 2.5 wt oil and say it works pretty well. If I end up keeping this bike for awhile I think gold valves (there's no shim stack in these forks) and about .46 springs would be what i would try next. :) I'm about the same weight as you.
