Hi,

I run my forks around 5mm to 10mm above the top clamp, and the shock around 100mm to 102mm of sag depending on the track and conditions. I weigh a little more ( 170lbs) but this would be a good base to start from. The clickers I would try these settings FORKS comp. 10 clicks out, reb. 8 clicks out, SHOCK hi-comp. 1 turn out, low-comp. 10 clicks out, reb. 8 clicks out. These settings would be good to start with. GOOD LUCK!
