Hey i am cleaning my jackson rr24 right now the strings are all off and i even unscrewed and took off the floyd rose to see if i can replace the screws that keep it in place but couldn`t find any knew ones but the screws should last till next string changing. this is my first time restring a floyd rose completly and i am watching step by step videos on youtube on how to do it, however i only have Dr 10-46 gauge strings can i use these for D standard tuning, I just need to set up so i can practice in this tuning i use the whammy bar so will the tension be to tight. And how do i check to see if my intonation is set up for D standard. Thanks for all the help guys UG members rock!

"Step 1:
Tune all the strings on your guitar to an electronic tuner with all the nut clamps released.

Step 2:
Determine if the intonation of the string you wish to change is sharp or flat by chiming the string directly over the 12th and checking the tuning. Then, carefully press the string down to the 12th fret and check the tuning again with the string fretted. If the fretted note is flat when compared to the chimed note, then the saddle must be moved toward the nut until the chimed note and the fretted note match. If the fretted note is sharp when compared to the chimed note the saddle must be moved away from the nut until the chimed and fretted notes match.

To move the saddle:

Step 1:
Once you have determined which direction (toward or away from the nut) to move the saddle, loosen the string until it is limp.

Step 2:
Loosen the attachment screw holding the saddle to the bridge plate while holding the saddle in place. Move the saddle in the desired direction a small amount (about 1/16in on the first adjustment and your best guess on subsequent adjustments) and re-tighten the screw.

Step 3:
Re-tune the string and check the intonation again using the procedure outlined above (check the intonation).

Step 4:
Repeat this cycle until each string is properly intonated.
When you’re finished with the intonation procedure re-tighten the nut clamps. This will not change your intonation setting."

Courtesy of the FR website. 10-46 will be fine in D. There won't be that much tension however. But that's just my opinion because i like a lot of tension.

Yeah, I use that gauge for D standard.
To check if it's intonated, play fretted notes and listen if they're in tune.
