    This is out of the 09 owners manual and for an XB9SX.

    Maybe it'll help.

    Hey oh9bolt, the settings listed in my 03' service manual are different from yours. Is your pic for a later model and possibly different? My factory service manual chart for an 03':






    I currently have my rear shock preload on #4, front at 4 lines (the 4th line just above the adjuster barely) and the compression/rebound set to the factory "sport" settings. I'm 190lbs and 5'9", seems to work good for me, bike was really weird at first when all settings were for 150lbs and less and the compression/rebound was "something" lol.

    You're right RamAirZ, I must have picked the wrong pic in my photobucket account.
