Thanks to everyone who responded with the oil change/torque spec info. Now I've got another question...

I want to set my suspension to stock, but since I dont have the manual, I dont know what that is. I generally run my suspension stiffer than most, but stock is a good place for me to start.

So if someone knows what the stock settings are front and rear I'd appreciate the info.

Thanks in advance,
Aa.

Here's the adjustment locations and stock settings(until you buy an owner's manual [:D] )
Front preload - blue nut on top of fork; 6 lines showing
Front rebound - screw on top of fork; 5 clicks out from full in
Front compression - screw on back of bottom of fork leg; 5 clicks out from full in
Rear preload - the ramp type adjuster on top of rear spring; 4 up from th bottom
Rear rebound - screw adjustment on left bottom of rear shock; 7 clicks out from full in
Rear compression - screw adjustment on left top of rear shock; 9 clicks out from full in
Be gentle with the screw adjustments. This is a pretty soft set-up, but you have to start somewhere.

Thanks Canuck!

These settings are definitely very soft, but its a good place to start. I'll set sag for my weight as soon as I have a chance and see what I can do from there...

Thanks again.
