If it is just clickers, count where they are at now, then play with them. The manual has decent instructions on this. Have an experienced rider watch you and/or ride your bike. You will find clickers only a small help, though.
What you really need is the new Chaindrive Ejection Seat/Parachute (YZ style of course) that I am inventing for guys like us! When in doubt, twist (the throttle) and shout!! Bonzai!!
Now go conquer that bitch!

Start with stock settings +1 on compression both ends. Keep dialing in more compression damping until you are using all but the last inch or so of suspension travel (at the axle) on the biggest hits. Move 1 click at a time and check the dust "line" left on the shaft by your wiper seal on shock and forks (be aware the shock travels about 1" for every two or three inches at the axle). Adjust rebound to suit. More rebound typically means less air and vice versa (to a point). Keep in mind the ideal settings for jumping are probably not best for whoops, turns, etc. So it's all a compromise to get the best all-around feel and control. Settings will be different for each track. This is what race team mechanics get paid decent wages to work out with their riders before the gate drops. They are really good at these things.

Ps-am vertically challanged as well. 5'8". I did cut my seat foam a bit and that helped.
