You weigh less than 90% of the riders here. There may not be much help. Be sure to set your sag per the manual and you will probably use lighter settings on compression but near standard on rebound. Stock springs will be in the range unless you jump alot and land hard.

No problem, keep asking and it usually generates discussion.

Based upon my experience, I think the stock suspension is fine for trailing riding and your weight.

If you do MX you may want to get the suspension revalved stiffer.
