Really depends on what spring rates you have and how much you weigh.
Thanks from Phl and slickwill

I consulted Dave Moss and Dan Kyle (the biggest distributor of Ohlins in the World) and was told 38mm front 28mm rear for street by Dan Kyle and 35mm front and 25mm rear by Dave Moss... They reckon -5mm on those figures for the track as a good starting point and then tune to the conditions.

Cheers.
Thanks from Phl and slickwill

Here's a link to some numbers (and directions) from Ohlins.

If you download the owners manual for the TTX36 shock (right side of the page on my link above) it slso gives some setup and sag numbers that are slightly different than the link.

I was told by Dan Kyle in 2013 40/30 front/rear sag. These were confirmed by the Ohlins tech who re-valved both forks and shock. I also have softened up the shock spring substantially (3 steps), and the fork spring (one side only) 1 step softer. Makes a world of difference on the Flat link position.

I Ride: 1299 Panigale S -
(I generally run 34 to 35 mm in front about 30 mm in rear if riding on the street ) I run 33 front and 28 in rear for the track depending on track surface and rear grip coming hard accelerating out of the corners..) How much do you weigh? If you are too light o too heavy you might need different springs..

Suspension settings listed in magazines are a waste of paper and ink.. They are for those of average build between 150 to 170 lbs.typically and even then it is a subjective issue Depends on how you ride (track or street) not going to work for everyone. Riding hard and fast on the track required firmer settings since you are pushing the bike at faster speeds and loading the suspension (at both ends )more that you could ever do on the street. Street sag is better set a little looser so you will have a more compliant ride.

Go see a suspension specialist it is worth the money..

I'm currenty 80 kg, that's about 175 lbs. We don't really have a suspension specialist over here, best I can do is to chat with some privateers who actually race the bike. I actually managed to balance the rebound pretty good compared to the stock settings, and I got a basic understanding on how to tune compression damping and what loosening/tightening the compression does. But since everything depends on bike attitude and angles, I'm interrested in recommended sag values, which will decide my initial preload And see if I need to change the springs..
