Something doesn't sound right. I don't think Triumph would design a bike for a weight that is waaay less than the average north american (~180 lbs) or the average European (~160 lbs).
You should get more miles in though to let the suspension settle in a little more, and then have it adjusted to your specs a bit better, that always gets huge compliments from people here. If you still don't feel satisfied you can start buying parts for it, but IMO you don't really need to unless you are a serious track day rider. Each person feels a little differently though and there is nothing wrong with an overhaul if you want to invest in that.
Could be wrong though, I would ask him why he is saying it is sprung for a 100 lb rider, for instance does the stock spring rate tell him that, etc.
Thanks for all the feedback! I think I am definitely going to look into having a legit shop do a basic setup. Do you guys know of any near Eastern PA?
