The settings on this site are the result of a customer having a suspension guy help him set up his bike at Thunderhill Race Way. Again, probably not perfect for you, but a possible good starting point.

I believe both of these are listed on some other thread(s) as well. But now they're both here for your convenience

P.S. In addition, I highly recommend this book. It's a great resource.
Update, weird my S had the Bayliss settings in there already...

I Ride: Ducati 1199s
Rider Weight (w/o gear) - 177lb

Panigale Type - S

Front Preload (total) - 39mm
Rear Preload (total) - 31mm

Front Compression - 23
Front Rebound - 11
Rear Compression - 21
Rear Rebound - 13

Suspension Linkage - F

Rear Shock Length - Stock

Tuned by a well known suspension guy here in Jersey, bike feels more controllable when flicking from left to right and vice versa, bike stays on track without it feeling like it wants to keep diving into the turn, and no longer getting bounced off the rear seat!

My suspension guy dialed mine in stiffer than sport/softer than race and the tire feedback/grip were immediately improved:

200lb Rider w/o gear
Stock preload settings - didn't have to change a thing...at least for the twisties. Tracktime will be a different story.

Front Comp. 12
Front. Rebound 6
Front Sag 42mm

Rear Comp. 16
Rear Rebound 8
Rear Sag 31mm

Im 250lbs without gear, stock spring is too soft...any thoughts on how much higher I should go? I am pretty agressive and ride mostly town to twisties. Thanks in advance for any help!

Don't have my numbers, but I currently have them all jacked up with high numbers. Basically trying to account for the spring that is too stiff for me. I'm 160lbs and dealer called Ohlins and they recommended 8.5 rear, .90 front. Estimate was $730.

Haven't really wanted to spend that so best I can do is soften it up best I can (realizing softer settings is in no way a fix for a spring that is too stiff, but it helps a tad).

Controversially I am of the opinion that the stock suspension is pretty much garbage...this is why I bought the base..with the intention of throwing out the cheaper junk..rather than the more expensive junk... Just my opinion..of course
