i don't know, but thats a good question. im 200lbs myself and still riding the stock suspension settings. you'd probably get a better response in the kaw forum.

Get a copy of this month's (May) edition of Roadracing World. They did a comparison of all the open class bikes, including the 9. Max McAllister (Traxxion Dynamics) also did a write up on his recommendations on modding the suspension. Definitely get a copy and read the article!

The settings they listed were:

Front
Free sag: 22mm
Rider Sag: 35mm\

Rear
Free sag: 0mm (too hard a spring - should be closer to front numbers)
Rider sag: 13mm

Fork settings:
Preload: Stock
Rebound: 1 out (from full hard)
Compression: 6 out (from full hard)

Shock:

Preload -4 Turns
Rebound: Full soft
Compression: 1.5 out

Max thought front rebound worked poorly, and the stock rear spring was way too hard. Jack up the rear: For track use you'll need a bette shock, but for street use, the stock setup should give you enough adjustment.
