There's an adjustment you can make to rear suspension by inserting a tool, that's located in the right side panel, to the rear shocks. There's five settings from which to select. I'm thinking this is to adjust for weight. Is this correct? if so, how do you determine which setting?

Correct. If it doesn't feel too firm and you aren't bottoming out on big bumps, leave it alone. If you are, raise it one notch at a time until you get the best mix of bump resistance and comfort. No adjustable damping, so it's pretty straight-forward and what you get is what you've got.

What weight are you. I'm around 190lbs and find 3 or the middle setting works fine.

If you have it at the softest setting, its on one. ( the spring is the least compressed ) Five is the firmest setting. Three is the middle setting with tow clicks either way.
