Shocks are to control spring action mostly, but you can also use them to create a momentary action on body roll and weight transfer. A stiff shock will react slower than a soft shock and vice versa.
A good basic starting point for set up would be: 52-54% left side weight
52-54% rear weight
49-50% cross weight
Front springs: 1200 RF 1000 LF
Rear springs: coil- 250 RR 300 LR
leaf- 150 RR 200 LR
