OK - I've replaced the springs F & R on my R, and I'm looking for ballparky guestimates on where to start with the compression/rebound adj.. I'm working with the stock valving at the moment. Front springs are .47's running 5wt oil 'cause it was the lightest I could find locally, rear spring was replaced with a 10.5 I'm roughly in the 225-230lb range geared up, & would like to think I ride kinda quick - in the desert mostly, but I'm perfectly aware that I'm really not the fastest thing around. (& yes, the springs may be a bit on the stiff side for me, but... that's what they are) Bike's kinda the "typical" R, only real difference is I've got a 7 gal tank on it, although I've yet to actually put 7 gallons in it. I realize any suggestions are going to be rough ballpark & that's cool - just looking to get in the area so I can begin some personal fine tuning & I am NOT a suspenion guru, nor are any of my buddies. I'm thinking with the stiffer springs I want to go softer on the compression & stiffer on the rebound than the factory recomendations - but how far on those, & at each end of the bike, I really don't have a clue.
