2011 ZX10r general suspension set up?

I am SURE someone has asked this in the past in one form or another.... but for the life of me I cannot find it.

I just picked up my first Kawi (2011 zx10r), coming from a '08 Cbr1000rr. Just wondering what guys are running as far as suspension set ups for one up riding/track days on stock a suspension. I'm 185lb (84kg) with full gear. Favor quicker more responsive steering vs stability (although obviously both are favored).

In the 400 miles I've put on it so far I notice a bit of under-steer when exiting the corner, as well as her being a bit reluctant to fall into the corner upon entrance. I've read about shimming the rear and raising the fork tubes. But also wondering about popular compression and dampening settings.... Thanks for any input or direction to where I can find the info!

Suspension settings are based on your riding weight and preference. It won't matter what im running aince it won't translate to you. You need to do it right or you could juat make it worse.

Oh.. and shim the rear.

Rear shock lacks damping and tends to squat on corner exit, but lots on suspension on here
