Up!
Please share your weight and settings!  :820:

for now (I'm 100 kg with gear) I've 22 clicks in rear preload.
Indeed immediate improvement for me from stock, much less squatting effect under acceleration and more compliant.
I've also closed a little (half a turn from stock setting) the rebound, front and rear.

Still have to touch front preload and compression.

Anyway these suspension components seems to be pretty sensible to tweaking, the difference can indeed be felt.

Anyone know of a good suspension tuner in the Manchester area?

I've had a go at setting things up myself after reading whyhaveone's excellent post (thanks again!). so I thought I would share my settings. I am around 95kg fully kitted up.

Front
Preload - 5.5 turns in
Compression - 1.75 turns out
Rebound - 1.75 turns out

Rear (rider only, no panniers)
Preload - 20 clicks in
Rebound - 1.75 turns out

The rear feels much better than on factory settings and I'm still fine tuning the compression and rebound damping at the front. Half a turn of either of these makes quite a difference!

I have just come back from a week in Tenby and it's the first trip I have done since running it in.

I found the Suspension a bit hard on the front and soft on the back. I am booked to have it sorted professionally next week as even though I tweeked it, I was never happy

Update to the settings above after a bit more fine tuning.

Front
Preload - 6 turns in
Compression - 2 turns out
Rebound - 1.75 turns out

Rear (rider only, no panniers)
Preload - 20 clicks in
Rebound - 1.25 turns out

I've discovered that a quarter turn can make quite a difference. For example 1.5 turns out of rebound damping on the front feels 'busy' and a bit harsh whereas 1.75 feels supple and smooth.  I think I'm just about there now  :001:

Hi peeps - great thread, really helpful in getting some base settings for me to play with. Now at about 1800miles on my 2020 and loving it.

One thing I have noticed quite notably today was my previously set rebound was around 1.75, today with it being much warmer out the damping effect was really weak.  I ended up with a setting of around 0.5/0.75 turns in order to  dial some of the bounce back out.   Has anyone else found the temperature making such a big impact in rebound settings?

Yes, but in my case the big variance is I think due to oil wear... on my 2020 I started with 1.5 but now after 10000 miles I'm at 0.75 front and 6.5 preload (i'm 100kg) ... maybe next step is replacing the fork oil....
