2018 1000XT suspension setup

Hi Folks,

I have a 2018 Vstrom 1000 scheduled to be delivered this week. I'm looking for advice on initial suspension setup.

I'm about 215 pounds, maybe 230 with all of the gear. Also, I'm 6'0" with a 32 inch inseam if that makes a difference.

Anybody who is about my size who has dialed in the stock suspension to give the best ride? I'm mostly a pavement rider.

If you could pass along your settings that would be really helpful. That way I can get out and ride the new machine with something better than whatever the factory happened to dial in.
