Re: 954 suspension adjustments [DK revalved forks]
First get someone to help you set sag. The front should be about 36-38 mm and the rear 26-28 mm for street riding. You'll need a few buddies to help you set sag. To do it, you raise the front off the ground so the forks are fully extended and take that measurement. Then, while someone supports the bike, you sit on it with all your gear, feet on pegs, and have someone take that measurement. Subtracting the two gives you the sag, which should be in the range I've stated above. For the forks, I'd try putting the compression and rebound at about the middle of the adjustment and go from there.
Same for the shock, if it's a triple adjustable, I wouldn't bother messing with the hi speed compression. I've had mine set up by suspension guys and they've never bothered with it, just low speed compression and rebound.
