Question about KTM SX 250 Motorcycles
There is simply no default setting for that - it all depends on what suspension elements you have now on the bike, what the terrain will be, and how good are you in piloting it.
It can be as simply as tightening the springs and closing the valves on all the shocks if you are just using for a gentle walk on some flat dirt roads or a complete tuneup for racing in a circuit - that would involve the replacement of the springs, valves and oil at both ends.
These basic settings for your weight are turns out from fully closed
Fork : comp 22 , rebound 15
Shock: comp 22, rebound 13
sag 115mm - 40-50mm static under load
Once you have that start tweaking them until you reach something you like. If you can't reach it then it involves either replacing springs plus removing or adding oil, or both - a complicated job, better left to an experienced repair shop
