Shock settings 80kg

Anyone know what settings the shock should be for me?

It's a standard Kawasaki shock

Set the static sag to between 6 to 10mm

After that all you have is 4 rebound settings if my memory is correct.
Ideally you should remove the standard shock and dispose of it carefully and fit a decent after market one. I like Ohlins myself others I'm sure will disagree.

I for one strongly disagree, the standard shock is pure quality, until I sell the pile of crap that is, then and only then will I venture the Ohlins to be absolute perfection.
Does the low seat height reflect the low intelligence? Easier to get an asshole onto.
