I just switched from Pirelli Diablo to Michelin PP2CT. Front at 36 psi and rear at 38psi. I found I had to back off about a 1/4 turn on the rear compression damping, but the front was fine. My settings have gravitated toward those suggested by Moss et al, with the exception of rear preload which I have at full soft. Works for me (I'm 5'10 and 167 lbs fresh out da shower.)

I am almost the same weight and high. So can you give out ur full suspension setting ( front and rear preload, rebound .... How many turn from hard or soft.... ) Been reading a lot but could not get the setting right.
Thanks

I raised the front forks up about 2mm and really like the turn in better. I'll have to recheck exactly where my settings are but I'm finally happy with them, confident the bike will stick into the corners and launch coming out. I'll post up tomorrow.

Well, folks, I've got my settings about dead opposite everyone else. I am 170 lbs. Mich. PP 2Ct. 38psi frt 40 psi rear.

Front preload full soft minus 4 turns
Front compress. full SOFT minus 1 turn
Front rebound full soft minus 2.5

rear preload dead soft
rear compress. full soft minus 1/2 turn
rear rebound full soft minus 2.5

I have been tweaking and tweaking and tweaking this stuff constantly trying to find settings that make me feel like I'm getting good contact without having my skeleton rattled when I hit a bump at 70mph. I really think I need softer front springs and then I can use higher damping settings.

OK Fireblade61 the first question would be did you set your sag?
If you couldn't get it close then yes new springs are in order.

Here is a link for suspension set up that may help
Motorcycle Suspension Set-up


Also dropping your tire pressure will help with the bumps in the road.
It will also give you a bigger contact patch so you might feel a little more connected.
