Ohlins shock setup?

Alrighty peeps.... i jumped in and bought a nice Ohlins shock for my 919, sprung for my weight etc.

I can play with preload and get the sag n whatnot set for me.

But what i had questions about were the compression and rebound settings and what i should look for / where i should start with those.

Message LDH. I'm sure he can get you in the Ball Park and then you can fine tune from there.
Best of luck and have fun.

PS....get a notebook and write down every change you make and how it feels when you ride, and compare.

Bring it in to the suspension pros and learn as they set you up. Shops are usually more than willing to share their knowledge specially since it's your bike they're tuning. It's $50 well spent

However I'm sure someone here can answer your question if you want to take a swing at it yourself.

- '03 919

You're gonna need to set the pre-load a little less than normal to compensate for the lower amount of gas in the tank

Baseline is 15 clicks on rebound and 12 clicks on compression
