Click on the sag link (mouse-over the word "sag", then click the More info link at the bottom). That will get you started. Exactly what problem are you trying to solve? If you have a stock bike, it's really not ready for serious MX without a fair amount of work. Have you at least gotten the correct springs installed on your bike?

Ah, got it.
Put the clickers in the middle and ride.
Write down how the bike feels, where it's fast, where it's slow, where it feels like it's bottoming and where it feels like the suspension is packing (not moving far enough). Does it wash out in the turns, does it want to turn too tight, that sort of thing. Without that info, there's not a lot of help to be given. :doh:

Here's a TT link on setting the dampening:

Fwiw, I'm sure that your dad's trying to do the best he can for the least $$. That may be the long road to success, but y'all will learn a lot in the process. :snore:
