xr650l suspension

Can some of the riders weighing in the 220lb range share the compression settings and rebound settings you are running front and back. The owners manual tells how to set but not where to set per weight...thanks

You need to set your sag first, then start with stock setting, then read about suspension until you're cross eyed, then make small changes and keep track of what you've done. I have an'04 - Front is 3 back from hard. Rear compression is one softer/faster than stock, and rear rebound is 3 faster than stock. I am also 200ish and spend alot of time in the dirt. It's not a particularly agressive set up but I can keep it upright. There are lots of links on this forum to suspension - the hardest part is getting a feel for the bike and how to improve on what you've got.
