I'm glad it is working better for you. Ya, my forks were stupid stiff as delivered.Thank you danketchpel for sharing your infos.
I tried your settings, and although the fork seems now softer when braking strong, the bike feels much more comfortable, and that is noticable at all speeds.
The homogeneity of front and rear is much better. When I "jump" on the seat, both react accordingly, whereas before the front would react with a delay, and not give in as much as the rear.
My settings were untouched, but way off yours, since I had 5 clicks out on both compression and rebound.
I'm probably taller than you, and 250 instead of your 210, so may be I'll try a little harder setting, since I mostly drive onroad.
In the end everybody needs to find that sweet spot for their own total weight (gear, luggage, etc.), riding type, and of course preference. Some like a stiffer ride others softer. I also make some slight changes if I'm riding more off-road than pure street.
I'm finding though I adjust the rear shock more than the forks to compensate for different riding conditions/loads. I found for us to ride two up I need to crank in another 0.1" of spring preload and stiffen rebound about 1/8-1/4 turn. I tried adding a tad of preload and 1 click of compression dampening for two up and didn't like, I went back to my solo setting for the forks and it worked fine.
