Help with suspension adjustments

Well I've got the bike together and been riding it every time it stops raining around here. got almost 500 miles on it now (350 in the last few days) and want to make it more suited to my riding habits/style.

I realize its a street bike and therefore isn't the most comfy riding bike but I think I'm too heavy for the way the dealer set it up. I'm not a racer, so how well it leans isn't as important to me as how long I can ride it for before my back gives out. I use the bike more like a cruiser than what it was really meant for. :smilebig:

I have a friend (about 265 lbs. Big guy) with an 07 R1 and his bike feels like it handles the various bumps and grooves in the road much better than my bike with the way his bike was set up for him.

I weigh about 225 lbs (102 kilos-ish I think for you people across the sea) and about 6'3'' if that helps any. I searched but couldn't find much. Any advice or any good threads with pointers?

Thanks guys.

Go to a trackday and spend the $30-40 to have a pro work with you on suspension all day. That's the best way to get it set up right.
