I feel it's really stiff for my 155 pounds. I get jacked out of that rear seat!

found something that works for the rear end for lighter riders

I am 135 lbs, got 9nm front springs, 85nm rear shock spring (vs 10nm & 90nm stock form). this bike is naturally more front loaded, if you are below average weight 170-180lbs, the rear end is super light. The front is less affected because 52% of the bike weight helping push down the front, while the rear shock is more rider dependent.

I shorted the shock length in the rear by about 6mm, changed the geometry to compensate for my lighter weight. Keep your preload dialed in to normal levels to maintain suspension travel. Now, the bike's no longer trying to toss me around.

Supension setup is to each's own, but thought this would provide some direction to you DIY guys.

Thanks to Dan Kyle for the pointers.

Hi all - I've been reading all of the posts, and you are all so much lighter than me. I'm 184cm, and 125kg with gear. (6'3" 260 pounds I think)...

Sounds like the stock from and rear springs are going to be way to soft....!

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance..!

I am heavier that everyone on here. I got my rear spring switched out recently. Ohlins gear came from Dan Kyle in northern cal. Most dealerships know who he is. Does a ton of suspension work on the west coast. He also did the front and rear full setups on my old R1 and I was really happy with everything he did for me,

So heavier than me (above)? What did you go for? Front and rear?

Thanks

I am about 315 lbs. Also 6'11" tall. I already got my rear spring replaced and set all of my suspension to where I think it should be. but I had 2 questions that I'm hoping the community here can help me with.

1. Do you think it's totally necessary to completely redo the suspension front and rear because of my size?

2. I ride pretty aggressively (always have) and I've never had an adjustable rear suspension. Should I be set to flat or progressive or is that not really dictated by weight, rather constant change in load, ie 2 people on the bike vs 1.

Thanks in advance for your advise

I Ride: 2015 Ducati Panigale 1299S by way of 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale Base w/ABS
So.... I have a 1299S and I like all the settings in Sport mode but like the throttle response of Race mode.
I'd rather modify Race mode because I need Sport mode to stay as is for heavier traffic commutes. I've set the Race Mode's ABS, EBC, DWC, & DTC to mirror Sport, but not sure of the DES settings.
I'm wanting to set Race Mode's suspension settings, DES, like Sport's suspension settings.
What should my customized Race suspension, DES, settings be?

Fork:? (Softest, Soft, Default, Hard, Hardest)
Dampner:? (Softest, Soft, Default, Hard, Hardest)
Shock:? (Softest, Soft, Default, Hard, Hardest)
