I'm I big guy (260 lbs), and other than setting the sag, pretty much left the rest alone. For the technical single track stuff, twisty, and root infested, that we have here in our area, I move the forks up just a little in the tripple crown. Makes for a bit better/quicker turning. Doing away with the AIS, using the GYTR kit made a world of difference on my 06. I thought I was satisfied with the stock bike, but the extra power attained has saved my butt on several ocassions out in the woods. I too was raised on two stroke 250's. The free mods done, definately brought back that old "on the pipe" power I was so badly missing with the four stroke.
So, hang out with us, learn, share, and enjoy!

I'm 6' 200. I just adjusted all the suspension to factory settings and turned the rear spring down just enough to set the sag and the bike rides nice for the trail ridding I do.

Like you, I have just gotten back into riding after a 15 year absence. Also, like you, I am teaching my 10 yr old son how to ride. I own a machine shop in Oregon, what is your machining background? Our stories sound very much alike!
