Default Adjustment DW9000

Hello,
I'm a newbie. After searching many topics about adjustment DW9000, but I cannot find, so I post my question here. I've just bought a DW9000 double pedal, it's great, but I don't know how to adjust it, because I feel with factory settings, it's heavy for me to play.
So you guys please help me how to adjust it, if you have pics, it's wonderful. Thanks so much.
PS: I'm from Vietnam, sorry for my bad English!

Turn the knobs on the bottom of the springs. It will release some of the tension on them.

I'm pretty sure that you could adjust the beater angle on this particular pedal but I'm not familiar enough with it to know how to do it. Just use your drum key and turn the various nuts and see what happens.

You can also adjust the camber (i think that's what its called) of the drive-chain by undoing the nut on the underside
of the cam and sliding the little rectangular-ish piece back and forth.
It gives it a fairly different feel.

There's a "Turbo" setting and an "Accelerator" setting - Accelerator being when the piece is pushed outwards.

When I was messing around with the cam on my 9000, i noticed the "Turbo" setting felt slighty heavier to play
so try adjusting yours to the "Accelerator" setting, it might just be what your after.

Thanks all, I'll try again. This board doesn't have a "Thanks" button yet?
