im familiar with setting sag and why you need to and what not on motorcycles, so thats not new to me, just need to know ideal sag #'s so i can get this thing more dialed. Its for a Bullit with Fox Vanilla RC 8.5x2.5

depends on use.

DH is 30% stroke of shock.

Trails is less.

I measure by eye to eye. Or by sliding the stopper to the beggining of stroke and guessing. I also just ride it and see how it feels.

Kind of basic answer. Hope it helps.

20 to 30% of the stroke.

Most shocks don't recommend more than two turns on the preload. If you need more, then you probably need a stiffer spring.
