Just to update, I slowed down the rebound by 1 click and gave it a try. Wear line on the edge of the tyre is now straighter, so that seems to have done the trick. No noticeable/undesirable difference running it slightly slower so Ill leave it like that for a while and see how it goes.

Keep the Rubber side down and don't ride faster than your guardian angle can fly

Aim for about 35mm front and 40mm rear.

I have never had a motorbike setup, and don't have the foggiest idea how to do it. This video is the first time I've seen anything in relation to setting up a bike for a rider. I suppose it's because I'm a noob. Does anyone know where there is a set of instructions or a list of things I should do to setup my bike, preferably with some instructions for a z900?  Thanks.

YouTube is sometimes the problem.  As mentioned on this video, even DM contradicts himself.  How is a noob suppose to get any real information from that? Also the pace is usually fast, you cant get answers to questions  etc.  I would prefer a tech manual that defines the terms, and the order one should approach tuning.  I think I get it but, but understanding and doing are sometimes two different things. 

Forums are great, but opinions run high as well and you are the mercy of someone actually responding. 

I found the below video especially helpful learning concepts and general steps:
