I have a 2012 D675R. I adjusted the compression and rebound according to the recommended specs in the manual for "street riding". It is more street friendly. Just be careful turning them in to full clockwise too much on forks. Toward the end it still clicks, but feels like you're over turning them. I stopped where I felt comfortable that I wasn't overturning, and backed off to get my "0" click. Then made a few minor adjustments later to where I was happy, after going for a ride.
As previous poster mentioned, the "sag" or spring preload is essential with proper suspension tuning. If needed, this should be the first change you make with proper suspension tuning. I'm at 188, and with my initial sag measurements, I see too much preload on the rear and too little up front. I'll need to revisit the compression/rebound settings after I set my sag up properly.
Adjusting spring preload can be dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. If unsure, seek a professional's assistance :)
