R1100S Suspension Setup

First time poster, first time BMW owner.

Does anyone have any documentation or advice on how to set up the suspension for my 1999 R1100S?

According to this website (Suggested Sport Bike Motorcycle Suspension Settings | Sport Rider) I'm supposed to do 10 clicks out in the front, 14 clicks out reart, and .5 turns out rear dampening. Dumb question but what does "Out"mean in this case?

Welcome

Here's how to get the stock settings:

Front: turn knob fully clockwise (towards the H setting); then counter clockwise 6 clicks

Rear Rebound: turn adjusting screw fully clockwise; the n turn counter clockwise one half turn

Rear pre-load: turn counter clockwise as far as it will go (towards Low setting); then turn a few clicks clockwise. I use 5 clicks.

I'll refrain from discussing that the stock shocks are worthless.

I've played around with mixed results - still working at it but yeah new suspension may be in order as $$ permit.
