'04 YZ250F Fork Valving/ I Need Your Help

I have an '04 YZ250F that I'm setting up for Woods Hare Scramble racing and I've just recently tore into the forks to replace a damaged tube. While in there, I decided to measure all of my shims and to revalve the forks when I put them back together again.

Stock, they felt quite harsh on any rocks or roots, and this was even after adjusting the clickers(which did help, but not enough).

Anyhow, I have a large selection of shims to choose from for the revalve, but I was wondering if any of you TT'ers could steer me in the right direction towards a good starting valving stack that I can fine tune from? Your help is greatly appreciated!!! :D

This is what was in my forks, stock.

Thanks guys!!! Mitchell "Maniac" Marks :D

take out 2 shims of "24/.10 (6 each)" and take out the "22/.10" of the valve body and you will be surprised how good your fork can work...
