Ok guys, I see where a lot of riders have put initial miles on their new babies, but has anyone tweaked with their suspension settings yet? I own a blue '04 and adjusted mine from the get go. I only weigh 132 lbs...(save the laughs, please) and was curious if anyone had a "dialed in" setting to go by yet. I initially thought the factory settings were way too stiff for my preferences...any others??
Just start at mid point on the adjustments and go from there. Remember to adjust one at a time, i.e. rebound on front then ride. Then adjust the compression on front, then ride. You get the idea.

And don't forget to adjust your preload first before tweaking with the rebound and compression adjustments.
