Suspension set-up

I've played with my suspension settings a little bit and found I could really get the bike to sit down and slide a lot more controllably with the adjustments, but it's left me wondering what other people are running on their bikes.

On my 2004 CRF450 I found that setting compression to full soft, and rebound to full hard with 3.75" of sag helped the bike a lot. I also went up (hard) about 12 clicks on the forks compression and 4 clicks on the rebound. These "to the max" settings don't really leave me any room for adjustments now though, but damn the rear end chatter really disappeared.

Before I go and have the suspension revalved to give me some adjustment room, what are the rest of you all doing for settings. :hmmm:

Oh yeah, I'm probably an intermediate level rider, and I weigh 190-200 lbs.

just crash on my newly motarded xr4 this morning

i had set full hard comp and full soft on reb (fork)
and full soft comp and full slow reb (shock)
i had new dunlop gpr70 on, 30psi
i slip out just taking a quick right bend

what is going wrong here??
the front has always stuck like shiz to a blanket but my rear was sliding out, until someone told me to crank up the rear all the way.
full slow reb ya mean??
