Help 919 susp. adjustment front & back?

I weigh 220 and i ride agressively. The roads around my area suck not that i mind. What would be a good starting point?(rear spring front forks and rebound)

well.... im sure someone will say... get new front fork springs.

And i will agree. for your weight the front forks are going to be mush... no amount of adjusting the rebound will help. You need some stiffer springs and good quality 10w fork oil.

the rear... well thats pretty much hopeless as the rear shock sucks... but i still run it mainly cus im cheap. i weigh around 165 and run it on like the 4th notch ... u might try one or two more up.

what don't you like about your current suspension? What exactly would you like to improve? is it too stiff,soft,mushy, dives etc?

When I turn in. And theirs some ruts in the turn it dives alittle not too bad. Back seems good was set for two up rideing I'm sure of that its got I think 4 rings show on forks not sure what to do with those in middle. Rebound I think anyways a little rough comeing in aggressively on a turn with ruts

step one: install new fork springs and valves
step two: install new ohlins rear shock
step three: wipe that sh!t eating grin off your face, your scaring the children...
