suspension help

So I'm thinking its about that time to make adjustments in my suspension.

I have never touched any of the suspension settings since i bought the thing.. 3 seasons ago

i have no idea on what the simple adjustments should be set to, i think they are all set to "H"

anyone got a handy website, book, something that can help me learn about setting up bike suspension?

Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

how much does that cost?

Before you adjust anything you need to change the fluid in your forks. No matter how many changes you make to you suspention it work correctly if you suspension parts are not serviced at least once a year. And if you do alot of trackday twice a year.
