We refer to it as the A model. The Yamaha standard settings of 12 clicks out are pretty lame. As a starting point, set all your damping adjustments to 8 clicks out, and when evaluating your ride, adjust 2 clicks, evaluate, adjust again, eventually getting yourself dialed into 1 click either way... after a few weeks of riding, tweak to your preference again.
Rear shock needs to be tamed down on a Gen3/4, so my guess is you'll end up with the rebound damping on the rear shock at 6 or 7 clicks out.
Front forks have progressive springs and preload will have been set to 5 lines showing... if you weigh anywhere close to 200 lbs., dial in the preload to 1 line showing, try it. Tweak it one way or the other to suit.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
