no, I haven't made any adjustments yet, I just thought I would ride it as is for the first couple of rides, next I'll return it to basic standard settings as per the handbook. Handbook settings tend to be a compromise for obvious reasons but as you say good place to start and it's easy to return to them if required. First job will be set the sag, I did put a cable tie around the fork lowers to see how close to bottoming out the forks are, this looks Ok but a proper set up will get it to point I can work from. Unfortunately with this bat flu lockdown in force no idea when I'll be able to get out on it, it'd quite frustrating...Have you checked and set static and rider sag?
The stock suspension settings are a good guideline, but sag is especially important from a safety point of view if you think it's lively over bumps.
