This is a pritty specialist job that requires some specialist tools(compressor,rattle gun,impact sockets,etc to name a few) without them you will really struggle.Plus then theres the issue of bleeding the cartridges(i'm assuming that it has upside down forks as you dont give make model Husky mabey?)before setting the fluid levels.
My best advice is don't try this without a workshop manual & the tools I mentioned or you will struggle
Sorry I guess thats not the answer you really wanted to hear.

Yamaha settings


bottom of forks turn all the way in, then back out 12 clicks
top of fork - trail riding = all the way out then turn in 2 clicks, track riding = turn in 8 clicks
Rear spring needs to be adjusted so the tip of the rear fender drops 2.75" when sitting on it.
The top adjustment (compression valve) will be close to all the way out for trail and 5 to 8 clicks turned in for track.
The bottom adjustment meters how slow or fast the shock extends (rebound). Stand on something at peg height with one foot on the peg and the other on your stand and shove the bike down. Adjust the bottom (rebound) clicker to match the front of the bike so that both return to top at the same time.
This is a good starting point for any bike.
To fine tune your suspension it is always best to have a suspension tech watch you ride and make adjustments until the chassis of the bike stays flat while the suspension does its work. Usually take a tech 20 minutes to set the front and rear compression and rebound track-side!

Tip

Susspension set up for Motorcross bikes


When I need to set up a motorcross bikes suspension I set all the settings (both rebound & compression) to the middle of the range on both the front suspension & the rear suspension

Now, measure the distance from the inside of the rear mudguard and the top of the rear tyre & note the distance.

Now repeat with the rider seated in position and note the difference,

This value should be 20mm. If not adjust rear spring pre-load to correct.

Now, measure the distance from the inside of the front mudguard and the top of the front tyre & note the distance.

Now repeat with the rider seated in position and note the difference,

This value should be 15mm. If not adjust front spring pre-load to correct.(if adjustable).

This gives you your starting point for the fine tuning with the dampening adjustments to suit the riders preferances.

Shock absorber


all depends on your weight and what type of terrain your going on , trial and error so just adjust to suit your needs ! while standing on the pegs bounce up and down and make sure the front and rear move at the same time !! test after each adjustment and keep a log of what you done ! slow rides need less responce and softer settings !

Do you have the front and rear suspension settings for a c1 model 1998 kawasaki zx9r i'm 6 foot and 15 stone if that helps..


To set up your suspension correctly you need only adjust the front and back suspension to drop at the same time when you bounce on the seat ( fully loaded if touring or two up). Set the back hard or soft, your preference. Then adjust the fork pressure to the match the back. (or adjust the back to match the front if you do not have air forks) So when all the weight of the bike goes into a corner the front and back drop together. This will help prevent the front or back washing out first on a corner.

Stock suspension settings for a 2005 yz 250Need a baseline to start adjusting 195 vet novice Just need the clickers front and rear thanks


my 450 manual has different settings for EU USA an AUS out of 20 clicks between 10-14 out. so the best place to start is count the maximum clicks, and start in the middle, move a couple of clicks at a time and keep notes as its easy to forget. seat should compress about 80-100mm when you sit on it, but will depend on preference,track,mx, enduro etc try and get original manual from last owner

How do i adjust and test the rear shock absorber on my 1999 te 410e


you want to set you SAG which should be around 100 to 110 mm

to check.....with a friend
with bike upright on it on it wheels........no stands or straps take a measurement from the rear axle straight up to the fender and make a mark on the fender so you use the same exact spot, record this measurement.

put on all you riding gear, all of it!!!!!! and sit in your riding position with your feet on the pegs or as mush of your weight as possible on the bike......buddy needed.........take and record measurement from same location

now whats the difference between these 2 measurements....this is your sag, convert inches to mm by multiplying # with 25.4
1.25 inches = 31.75mm

now loosen and adjust your spring preload to achieve that measurement.
YOU MAY ALSO NEED STIFFER OF SOFTER SPRING BASED ON YOU WEIGHT AND RIDING STYLE
