...I can't recommend strongly enough setting up your front and rear sag correctly. I waited till I had about 1,000 miles on my new Brute to let the suspension settle in some, and adjusted the preload today to get about 1 1/8 (ish) inches of sag. What a difference. I had previously set the rebound and compression to their "medium" settings and found the ride to be great on smooth roads and a bit of a handful on anything less. But now, WOW. It's still very sharp handling, but just feels great. Anything less than badly rippled roads or potholes and the bike is really smooth. After a long sport ride I dialed in just a click or two more rebound, an Voila!20 minutes, one friend to help, and I couldn't be happier with the handling of the bike. (The seat, on the other hand, still leaves alot to be desired- but I guess I'm aiming for perfection
Really, if you haven't taken the time, you should do this.
