Hi, I wonder if anybody has any advice.

The manual says that the WP uncompressed rear spring is 1650mm and that preload should be set in the range of 10 - 18mm. I have initially set mine to -14mm and its as stiff as a board. Compression and rebound have both been set to mid positions. I am 13 and a half stone and looking for comfort rather than outright performance. As I have the air box fitted, it is going to be quite a faff to follow trial and error so I am looking to see how others have set up their bikes. Thanks for all contributions

I measure the bike height without rider sitting on it then measure it with  rider  weight on it . Then adjusted until I think I had 30 to 35mm movement when I sat on it  ( preload). Personally then I take off all rebound and set compression to my liking and then I introduce rebound until I'm happy . I also do frontend the same way but I think I only have 20 to 25mm preload .Ride it on a road that as a bit of everything and I use that road for setting up on .

I’m trying to figure front and rear suspension settings out too, really hoped someone could have shared their settings to give us a ‘base’ to work from. Interestingly the previous owner of mine had dropped the forks by 30mm… makes for a committed riding position!
