You are almost identical in size to me.

My understanding is the factory preload is #2, and pump rear shocks pressure to 10% of weight to be carried, ie #30 psi for a #300 rider.
This is a preliminary setting, adjust to your comfort.

Clymer manual says a #150 rider should have the preload at factory setting of #2 and atmospheric pressure in the shocks.

Maximum weight to be carried on the 750 is ~ #400, so if you are fully loaded set the preload to 3 or 4 (?) and pump it up to max of 43 psi cold.

Others may have more fine tuned directions.
