Default Help getting started

     

Through reading Daily on this site for the past 5 months, and advice from some generous members here, I'd like to set up my suspension.. (perfect of course).
I'm not new to working on bikes, but have never got heavy into suspension, so i'd like some help getting started.
Dell30rb has given me some good tips, but I still feel like I need a plan...
Sag, i can handle, and I've played around with the rebound a tad with (i think) good results, but I'm not so sure.

I have an 02 cr125, suspension all stock. I'm 5'9"- 155lbs. naked. I'm an older rider (35), just got back into it after a long break (16 years), but I grew up on bikes and raced motocross in my teens.
I ride MX tracks now and plan on racing this year - MX & Hare Scramble... and I also do some trail riding. I do ride agessively and I'm Hooked on jumping... Do some 50 footers now but i want more air.
Anyone like to set me up with a plan to start with, I'd really appreciate the help. I have the wrenching skills, and from what I've been hearing from you guys, suspension mods and set up, if done properly can be very rewarding, so I wouldn't mind spending some dough if need be.
Thanks in advance...
steve
