Setting up the new rig (forks/brakes)

Bought a Specialized P1 All mountain a while ago, along with some Marzocchi AM SL's and Magura Louise Carbons. Replaced the forks and brakes and been out on a few runs, to be honest the brakes are no where near as powerful as the Avid Juicy's that came standard, and im pretty sure the forks need adjusting in terms of air pressure.

I read the manual that came with the forks and it was less than helpful, i need to know what sort of pressure should be in each area for a guy about 11 stone, for aggressive XC and a few drops to flat?

Also the brakes i have read need bed in, but have been for a longish day out, with water etc mud all thrown in and they havent improved at all. Any ideas?

Anyway, enjoy some pics!
