2005 OEM WP shocks baseline settings?
I just replaced my OEM Showa (38K miles) shocks with OEM WP shocks (brand new!)
I'd like to start off with the baseline settings from the factory and adjust from there. Anyone have the manual that can share this info? I'll need the front/rear preload settings and the rear rebound setting.

Rear: Solo setting is 10 clicks clockwise off base setting.
Two up/luggage is fully wound in.
Damper: Solo - Turn screw clockwise fully in. Then unscrew counter clockwise 1.5 turns.
Hard setting - screw fully in
Soft setting - screw fully out.
BMW seem to use an undressed rider weight of about 70kg as a base.

My `03 GS (non-Adventure) has 29k on the clock, and the rear shock is starting to show it's age. It's way undersprung for my 190lbs - about 210 riding weight, which is my mind should be the beginning of the sweetspot for where the bike should be sprung.
Oh well, just another thing for the farkle list.
Good find on the WP shocks!
