Suspension setup

Hey guys been a while since I've been on here. You guys were pretty helpful before so hopefully you can help me out now.

I'm looking for somewhere that can set my suspension up for me. I'm not sure what to do and how to make adjustments by feel on it since I've never done it before. I'm sure I could figure it out. I just don't have any help to do it or anyone that knows what they are doing.

So does anyone know of such a place? I'm on the light side and I just mainly commute and pleasure riding but I feel like it needs a little help. It's a 2005 zx6r (636) if that helps. Thanks in advance.

Took my bike to Motorcycles Unlimited, they adjusted my suspension in about 30 mins.
That was the best change I ever made to a bike. Seriously.
It was transformed.

You should do it.

Motorcycles Unlimited and P1 Racing are where I put my trust. Neither place has ever done bad by me.

I rode out to a track day at MSRH and a shop from San Antonio was there. They set me up in about 20 minutes. They don't charge, but everyone there was giving them b/w $35 and $50.
It was the biggest performance change I ever made.

There is a track day at MSRH this weekend. They could set you up.
I took my Ducati to a CMRA race there (to spectate) and had them set up my suspension.
Very easy.

Gotta say, I drive from the galleria to Motorcycles Unlimited. Even for the littlest things. They have set me up with tires and fluid changes so far after I bought my bike used.
