2016 zx6r - Suspension Setup Help

Hello all! New to the forums and just purchased a used 2016 zx6r with 7k on the odometer and all of the tasteful upgrades including BAZZAZ ZFI TC with QS.

I have spent the last week reading article after article on suspension setup and still feel lost. It feels extremely hard going over bumps and I feel it all in the handles. I have an understanding of preload, compression and rebound (TEN?). I have two questions.

First: When I read " 2.5 turns from counterwise"..what is a full turn? 360 degrees?

Second. I am 160 pounds geared. Anyone here have some decent settings they're using? Any tips? Thank you in advanced~!

Set race sag first 25-30mmm rear, 30-40 mm front. All comp and reb settings are from all the way in on the adjuster to whatever turns out. Yes, one turn out is 360 degrees. Some adjusters have clicks which make it a bit easier.

Sportrider has pretty good stock settings from what I remember. I would give you mine but my stuff is now aftermarket. You should be able to get it pretty good. Put a zip tie around one of your fork legs and leave it there. This way you can see how much travel you are using on your forks.
