What do you weigh? On the front you can add oil to the forks 5-10cc at a time to get more bottoming resistance. The rear spring might be a progressive spring (the SR models are). You can tell if the coils are spaced closer together on one end of the spring. Here a comparison to show you. http://www.bikernet.com/news/images/PhotoID37261.jpg
if it is progressive more preload will stiffen up the spring rate. If you have to use so much preload the bike doesn't sag under it's own weight you will need a stiffer spring.
Not always, just turn them all the way clockwise to just lightly seat them then start at 2 turns out (ccw).
Also you need to set the rear sag. Find out the total rear travel.Your bike should sag about 1/3 of the total with you sitting on the bike in a neutral position. Yes you'll need a buddy. Good luck.
