One guy on here did and said that his suspension felt really soft at their suggested settings. He was basically saying it was ironic because their only real complaint with the bike was it's soft suspension.
Try setting the sag when you're 220 with gear. 41mm is the best I could get with the forks. I wing it and do the best
I can with what I've got. I raised the oil level in the forks. I won't tell ya how much til I try it. For my weight I can bottom the forks at the track or a sudden hit of the brakes. As for the rear, I have about 4 threads showing on preload. Anyhoo, I've done several settings. Before a track day I take the bike for a spin and do some adjustments. Always have to do a few tweaks when I get there. Why?? Cause I'm always messing with it.
I up'd the oil level to 100 mm from 140mm in the forks. Hit the brakes pretty good and it didn't bottom out. I need to check the sag and see what I come up with next. PS, that was 3 lines of preload showing. I'm running Hyper Pro springs and they're slightly thicker.
