On stock suspension for now, everything is 2 clicks out but not sure where I should set the high speed setting, anyone have any tips on this, last year I set everything 2 clicks out but never adjusted the high speed, now I set the high speed for dirt at I think 10 or 11 full turns out.

It's completely irrelevant for pavement. You need MX-size bumps for it to matter.

There is no real Best set up that's universal.
Oil weight and springs change all of that drastically.

FYI I haven't touched my suspension on mine.

I had to, my bike was trying to kill me last year in the dirt lol once I watched a few videos on where to start for stock suspension in the dirt, man it was 10x nicer to ride that last time we went out. 12 clicks out on everything and like 10-12 turns out on high speed and the bike felt like it was on rails vs when we went to c.c.Andrews with the guys off here, it was terrible to ride

Speed bumps and potholes maybe. If you really pride yourself on riding over them like a boss.
