I run my high speed stock. It does fine just the way it is. The other setting (low speed) I tighten all the way then back off 7 clicks. I back off a few extra clicks every once in a while if it gets real tight and the bars seem hard to turn.
This past weekend I rode some pretty tight single track and the setting felt perfect.
Go ahead and experiment with it a bit but I doubt you will have to adjust the High speed setting. Enjoy your purchase! You will be stoked very soon!

In other words, no I didn't.

THE SWEEP CONTROL VALVES
LOCATED ON BOTH SIDES, these are what control the distance of damping force (or
sweep), from the center line out to either side until it releases. The stabilizer is then free to
move to the steering stop. This allows for easy steering in tight turns.
In order to determine where your sweep control is set you’ll notice a machined
bevel on one side of the slot head groove, that is the POINTER END. Don’t confuse the
threaded hole as the pointer, it’s the beveled side of the head of the sweep control.
Always look at each sweep control as the FACE of a CLOCK.
If setting is at 3 o’clock, the right-side valve would face toward the FRONT of
the bike and the left-side valve would be facing towards the BACK of the bike.
At the 12 o’clock setting both would be facing UP.
At the 6 o’clock setting both would be facing DOWN.
SWEEP VALVE ( both-sides)
HIGH SPEED VALVE
9 o’clock damping
is 34 degrees.
12 o’clock damping
is 44 degrees.
3 o’clock damping
is 54 degrees.
6 o’clock damping
is full 78 degrees.
Sweep controls located on
each side are normally set
at the twelve o’clock
Key Feature: This prevents arm pump commonly created in other stabilizers.

Thanks for the explanation of the deflection angle. You broke it down nicely.

I stole it off the Scott's sight
Ya, I was gonna say you sounded like a .... well a Scott's salesman.
