Suspension adjustment

I took my 04 Brutale to a suspension specialist today to ask questions and to set the bike up for me. I purchased my MV only a few months ago. I told him of my complaints and in a few minutes discovered the fork compression was way to stiff and the shock too soft. We took some static measurements and made some adjustments...maybe 15 minutes of total time. I have only a few miles since the tweaks, but what a difference...a lot more stable in corners and dealing with the generally terrible road conditions here in Nor Cal. I will put on more miles this weekend to validate the settings.

Pretty happy with my B3 these days after loads of fiddling but I was shocked how much front preload I had to take off from the stock settings and I'm not a particularly light guy. Thinking the stock fork springs might be a bit tough.
