First thing is o set the sag . I dont know what exact messurements but you want to put all your gear on when you do it. If your over 185lbs you most likely will need a re spring to get the right settings on your sag. The 04-05 models have really weak springs stock dunno about the bewer models though. After you get the correct sag its easier to get the settings on your comp and rebound adjusters.

There are 2 different sag dimensions one for street and one for track . I am sure someone on here can chime in and let you know what they are. But off hand I would have to look it up

I am on a 2010

Settings of late after I checked are as follows

Front Preload 4 turns in from full soft
Rebound 1 turn out from full hard
Compression 2 turns out from full hard

Rear shock Preload is on stock setting due to it being hard as hell to adjust even with a spanner. I have to pull the shock out to turn the cam.
Rebound is 2 turns out from full hard
Compression is 1.5 turns out from full hard.

I know the bikes are on the light side spring tension wise so for now I will not be replacing anything. I would never hear the end of thats from the wife.

If you weigh 200 pounds you need to go up on your rear preload. They come factory set for a 180 pound rider and you should have 10mm of static sag (just bike weight) and 30-40mm of rider sag (rider setting on bike with the gear they ride with on). Hope this helps.

Lean the bike over in your garage for a static look at the issue ;-)

I dont know what they have for stock springs on a 2010 but they still may be too light for your weight. And the measurments are what counts you probably will end up with different settings if you do it the correct way

I know for a fact that it's not your choice of tire. I have Q2s and on the street I've about an 1/8 inch of infrequently used tire on the rear. On the front, I've 1/4 to 3/8 inch of unused tire.

As to your question, I don't know for a fact why anyone has more front or rear wear to edge, but I guess most folks have a higher confidence level using available traction coming out of a corner vs going into the corner and so use more available tire on the rear. On the street I'm just not ok with pushing the front anywhere near it's limit. I've still had the front start to tuck at low speeds on cold tires, but never to the point that I felt I was going to lose it. On-the-other-hand I enjoy slipping the rear a little and have more confidence with it.

As far as suspension, for me, upgrading has resulted in better wearing tires and more comfort, but it hasn't changed the amount of tire I use front or back one bit.

Like you, I'd like to hear from someone who knows the answer.
