2. There's no way for another rider to give you that info direct, as they would have to ride exactly like you do for it to be accurate. Start with the basic SR set-up and adjust to taste and you'll be good.
But, if enough people post their settings, then we should be able to see where the settings average out by rider weight and riding style and that would be a good place for people to start their fine tuning.
And its definately a better deal than everybody saying "settings are dependant on yada yada yada" and not giving out any info, because some people don't even have a clue where to start.
Starting in the general vicinity of the right setup is better than being way the F*** out in left field when you start.
Not everyone lives next door to Mr. Ohlins, and has access to a suspension setup guru.
