Also cant find anything about increasing tyre pressures when riding with pillion, can anyone advise?

It's at 42 psi now! How much more do you think it should be?  :114:

Leave tyre pressures at recommended 36/42 whether carrying pillion or not.  It's only the suspension settings I touch.
Sometimes I like to squat down, put my arms around my legs and lean forward but that's just how I roll.

:0461: If you ride with pillion and luggage I would put the preload to its max. I already have it on 75% of the max setting, for better handling.

sorry not got the book about, but have read it.

The pre load to 0..............is that winding in fully clockwise till it stops, then for pillion, and back out 30 clicks to standard in an unscewring anti clockwise direction.

Clockwise is max preload, anti-clockwise is min preload. You can wind it right off to lower the ride height a little and the bike still handles just the same and doesn't bottom out when solo.
