Anyone about 168lbs and have a suspension set up they like? I think the guy who had my bike before me was a lot heavier,i nearly get thrown off the bike when riding on a bad road suspension doesn't seem to absorb anything.

I weight 166, i got some race tech springs for my weight.

My rear suspension was throwing me off too, then I realized that the rear shock lost all it's oil and was just using the spring. No damping and no rebound at all.

Check the oil. I still need to tweak my suspesnion, the front and rear are doing two entirely different things.

I weigh 153 lb. but I figured a sport bike like an S3 just rode bad all the time? Kind of like how a Corvette doesn't exactly float across the bumps.

Sportier than what I used to ride... I used to not feel bumps, but not any more.
