Suspension set up guide - what are good starting measurements / how-to guide?

Need to set up my new GSX front-end and Penske rear shock.

I know there are certain rough sag/etc. measurements that make for a good starting point, after which I can tweak to my liking. What are those measurements for use on an '05 SV?

Also, does anyone know of any good how-tos explaining how to take those measurements, and do the adjustments?

Thanks!

Shock length 340mm center of bolt to center of bolt. Fork length 510 to 515mm from the top of the bottom triple clamp to the center of the front axle. There's a ton of threads on this......

35mm front rider sag, 25mm rear rider sag.
