xr650l suspension setup?

I am getting ready to experiment with alternate suspension setups on my ''01 xr650L.

I've searched and found several threads on "sag." Based on the weak operators manual documentation I'm not sure where the stock rear spring preload position should be. It's cranked down pretty tight/stiff with about 5/8" worth of threads showing at the top of the shock.

If a step by step procedure (with pictures) exists on this subject please forward link.

Thanks in advance,

JT (250lbs., 6'4")

Upon further searching I found a relevant document on this site but would welcome any other suggestions.
