Yet another suspension thread (2007 900 Hornet)

Hi all!

I'm having some trouble with the lovely Hornet I own... the trouble is - it has too many suspension settings!
All my previous bikes have only had rear preload and that's it, I'm 6'1 and around 95kg so I would up the preload to that sector and I'm away.. but now the Hornet comes along with all this fangdangled rebound, compression, even front fork adjustments! I'm bewildered at this above-par technology.

I've been doing some reading and I'm about as clued up as I'll get without someone drawing how it works to me in bright crayons, and nowhere on any site have I found a simple figure to work with (previous bike had 7 preload settings, 5th was in the 92 -97kg area, so it was easy), not even in the manual.

The rear preload on the Hornet I can figure out I... think, but everything else, I'm just not sure. I have people telling me not to touch the front at all, that it is fine the way it is, they have had the bike longer than me so I believe them. But I have no idea what to do with the rear, how to set it up for my weight and what not.

Is anybody able to shed some ideas? I've done the search thing, and the youtube thing.. but it's all quite literally over my head

Sorry for a repetition thread, I think my google/search-fu is terrible
