For a totally new rider, or not, Suspension can be baffling and tricky.
There are so many clicks and turns you can get wrong.
I prefer a more stiff set up, as compared to most other bikes i see around. But mine is not set up for a cushy ride around town.
After reading books and articles about it,, still not perfect.
There is a guy named Dave Moss on utube. 2 clicks out
I have set up both of my bikes exactly as he shows my same bikes.
+ OR - A few clicks or 1/4 turns here and there and my weight diff compared to whom evers bike he was tuning.
Might not have been exact but from there you can adjust a click more or less and turn, to suit your preference.
He gives quite effective explanations of what more or less, rebound, compression and pre load does.
