I do the same thing. Put some air in the right leg. Nothing more then 15 psi.

If I put ten in its stiffer. I was curious today because I was playing around with suspension set-ups. I looked at the left leg and under the golden cap it looked exaclty the same as the right one. So I busted out the pump and put 10 psi in both legs. BOOM there was no preload but it was hella stiff.

I'm not sure if I was supposed to even put anything in the left leg. But I was curious. It said the right leg was air preload in the Manual. I don't suggest putting air in the left leg.

FYI: The right leg is: Sit on your seat. Look at the fork. The leg of the fork on your right hand side is the right leg.

The other side is the rebound leg...putting air in there wouldnt matter...but could really affect it.

I reread the manual and it appears both legs have positive air preload.
