OK, someone started this post a little while ago but it never took off. What adjustments has everyone made to front and rear suspension, how much do you weigh? I don't have any help to check sag so I have made a few "feel" adjustments.

Weight: 190lbs

Front:
Preload - 1 line showing
Rebound - 2 clicks more from stock (or 6 clicks from full)
Compression - 1 click more

Rear:
Preload - 1 more ring from stock
Compression - 1 more click
Rebound - stock setting

Share and give feedback!!! We are not all 165lb street riders so some adjustments need to be made.

Can't believe no one has changed their settings, or is my post being boycotted??? Anyone plan changing shock/ revalving forks soon? Is the suspension better than the 03/04 model? I know that the stock suspension on my 05 feels much more compliant than my 01, though hard to compare apples to oranges.

At the moment I am 160 in gear; and I am getting carromed off of the bumps; and the bike slightly disorients. I just backed off rear pre-load two turns to try and get more compliance in the shock's workings. Softened compression 2 clicks front and rear. Backed off on front pre-load half a ring-space. Will see how this works tomorrow. Input welcome from any other light-weight riders.
