I have an 06 yz125 that I'm trying to get tuned to my liking. Does anyone have a baseline setting that they use for the forks or shock? Any information would help. Please also list your weight.

Me: 170lbs and my son: 140lbs. We both ride the bike but mostly me.

I googled this for my yz250, tried all the recommendations and while some were ok I was never completely happy. Sent my suspension for a revalve and it's night and day different.
The yz suspension is pretty good standard but the revalve was awesome.

Good information guys, and easydoesit, my settings are pretty close to yours. I'm 140, and in the Midwest so its a wide spectrum of riding conditions, sand, loamy, soft, hard pack.. I made a few adjustments today and I found that stiffening up my sag helped majorly. I might even try your settings exactly to see if it works even better than what I tried today. Thanks!
