Supermoto set up tips for MSRH?

I'll be running my Husky TXC449 on supermoto rims/tires at MSRH on Sunday for the first time. The bike has stock suspension, 120/160 BT016 tires and a 320mm front rotor. I'm used to running this thing offroad and it's set up for that. Anybody have set up tips for MSRH, expecially around suspension?

I run stock suspension on my ktm 625. It has pretty soft enduro/dual sport suspension. I have run up compression and rebound about 80% of full hard. and increased preload to reduce race sag. If your bike has MX valving maybe go about 70% on dampening. Go about -7 on rear sprocket.
Enjoy

you can slide down the forks in the clamps to get a little more high speed stability.

15 / 43 was too short for me.

Yea, I ran a 15 / 39 on my WR 450 when I was there and it was pretty much on the money.

Agree with the stiffing up of the suspension as well as the forks up in the triple clamp. This will help you to corner better too. TJ.
