    is there a list of common or suggested kerning pairs anywhere?

    I googled to no avail.

    Proper kerning pairs are done by hand. If you find that too much work - yes it can take many, many, hours - use auto-kerning.

    I realise they are done by hand. I wasnt looking for a magic auto kerning pair tool.

    i was just wondering, for example LT AV are obvious ones but I was thinking that there would somewhere be a list of common ones or typical ones.

    Or that there would be a body of text you could use to check your kerning pairs.

    The kerning depends on the font design so there is no standard set. The way to do it quick and dirty is to find a type that has a similar design as yours - AND proper kerning pairs. Export, and then import the kerning info in your own design. Success not guaranteed. You will still have to adjust.
    As usual: RTFRMF!

    Read a typography book. Then when you're done with that, read a typography book, and after that, read a typography book, and once you're done with that, flaunt your knowledge on the internet and act like you're doing the world a favor by sharing knowledge of something that holds very little importance in the grand scheme of things.
