on my 2000 model, the forks, the top adjusters are 2-3 clicks out from hard and on the rear 1 click out. this works for me on most type of ground and most jumps, im 70 kg and a B-grade rider. also muck round wit ur bar position n c wats the most comfortable. Dont forget to bleed ur fork air 2 :banghead:

This is the baseline that works for most:


Comp - 10
Rebound - 12


Low Speed comp (dial) - 10
Highspeed comp (nut) - 1 7/8
Rebound - 12
