You measure suspension sag, and adjust for approx 30% rider sag in front and 25/100mm in the rear.
You raise and lower front fork clamps to change steering geometry.
You change heights of seats, bars, and pegs.
... and that's it.
But you do not measure 'level'.

There is no such thing as factory level.
Where would you put the level?
Who cares, if the springs are all wrong, if it's level?
I think perhaps you do not understand the concept of static and race sag.
You are not adjusting anything be spring weight and compression.
This will get you into the 'golden' handling that all manufacuers build their bikes to meet.
Without knowing your weight, they cannot meet this goal.
You have to perform the measurements and spring changes to make it happen.
The static sag is nearly the same for all bikes:
front = 15% of travel
Race sag too:
front = 30% of travel
rear = 100-105mm
Unless you have the wrong suspension components, there is nothing else to know.
Perhaps you should divulge just what you have
If you have suspension components that were made for your bike......
