Suspension settings recommendations

I weigh about 250 pounds and I'm a sport type rider, lots of mountainous twisty roads, does anybody have any good recommendations for this settings on the forks and the rear shock?

Todd~ Although you're a bit heavier than me (and I mean that in the nicest way possible ), I started with the "sport" settings and incrementally changed them from there (an extra click or two across the board). I've always liked a firm ride and while there is some sacrifice for that mentality, it does pay off in the twisties. Preload would've been nice in the front but it is what it is. While not as graceful as some of the newer electronic suspensions available (as I'm sure you're aware), you'll definitely see a positive difference in the handling. Hopefully that latter is evident from your ride.

Here, there and everywhere!

Wink 160mph @11:15 handles great now!
