H'mmmm as soon as i work out how to set up my 04 i'll let u know!!!.

One word of warning only make adjustments when the suspension is unloaded IE on a centre stand.

PS If you do work it all out let me know:thumbsup:

This is what I did and it works awesome! First set the race sag at about 105mm. Than set your forks flush with the top of your triple clamps helps a lot with the way the bike sits and also helps out in turns you will see when you ride just trust me. Than set your forks at 6 clicks out make them nice and stiff on compresion. Last the rear shock 15 clicks out this is because the bike likes to transfer loads to the front. Remember to take the clickers all the way in than go out. See if this helps and let me know

I would not like the forks set to 6 on compression, but its a personal choice.

What would be an overall good setup on the suspension for mx racing. I also like my suspension alittle bit hard so its good good for whoops but so it doesnt hinder the cornering.

Its hard to say as each rider likes different things, try downloading the tuning guide on www.mx-tech.com

Yes it will make a big difference, main thing on any bike is to set the sag first, this will tell you if the spring is correct for your weight, with approx 100mm of rider sag you should have a static sag of between 25 and 35mm.
