I don't have any suggestions for what you will like, but I can tell you what stock was.

Forks:

Compression: 12 clicks out (the adjustment is on the bottom of each fork leg)
Rebound: 13 clicks out

Shock:

Low Speed Compression: 7 clicks out
High Speed Compression: 1 1/8 Turns out
Rebound: 12 clicks out

I would turn the clickers to full hard (clock-wise -- and don't force it once it stops) and click everything back to the stock setting and then adjust one thing at a time until you are pleased.

A lot of people are fine with stock. I'm not, but you'll have to decide that for yourself. Stock is a great starting point though.

Also, I would suggest keeping track of the number of clicks you have to turn each adjuster so you know where it was and will be able to see the difference.

Hope that helps, and welcome to
