Rear compression and preload were 0.5 and 1 turn out also. Tyres (new PR3s) were 30PSI front and rear. Possibly set up for track rather than real road use? Put everything to the MCN settings, and tyres to 34/40 F/R. Rear is a 180/55 on a 6" rim, so I read the 190/55 thread with interest. Looking forward to tomorrow's ride to compare the settings, and will fettle from there. Fun times
Dave ditch the 180 and fit a 190/55 and you will have a sharp steering bike.
For comparison I am a very heavyset stocky lump built like a brick at 5'10" and weighing 106kg without any of my custom made leathers or other gear.
I am running my 3rd set of Dunlop Qualifier 2's (although I just have a normal Qualifier on the front at present) and run at around 31-32 psi front and 32 - 34 psi rear on the road.
On the track I run 30 and 30 front and rear and for me with my weight these pressures work well.
I think your slow steering is coming from the suspension and I think a change to a 190/55 rear would also help.
