They should be the same as my 03 K1200RS so there you go:

Free sag,no weight on the bike : Front: 20-30 mm Rear 5-15 mm

Then what they call Ride height, that is with the rider properly outfitted in riding gear: Front 30-40 mm, Rear 25-35 mm.

Compression damping is 12 clicks and rebound is 18 clicks as a starting point,but those will certainly have to be adjusted depending on your riding conditions.
