Try the pdf manual available for free download:

I have a 06 so the settings are different.
Make sure you check for the SA model - I know for the 06 they were a different setup from those in AUS/US/EURO which believe it or not, all have slightly different spring and damping rates..
PS. I did not check to see if the PDF manual has your model, just assumed it did like the 06 manual does.

thanks for advive but I went and dowloaded the workshop manual and all they say is "Turn dampining adjuster to the original position". What is the original position ??????? :applause: :thumbsup:

suspension settings are custom to the rider. You will have to find the ones that work for you.
