Not meaning to doubt this, but where did you find this? I'm getting close in the braking zones..

You're running a modded Base Marzocchi fork? Performing ok?

I Ride: 2015 1299 Panigale
Redid my setup yesterday, ended up at 3 clicks out rebound on the forks with 2.5 turns in on preload from where I was in order to get 34.5mm sag. I don't need that high accuracy, but that's what I got. Also went from 21mm to 26mm rear sag, still need to test and revise shock rebound before the values are worth anything..

Also, I confirmed Wilkson's observation at about 33mm left on the slider/inner tube when bottoming by measuring from full droop..
Thanks from 80shilling

I Ride: 1299 S, 1198SP, 900 ie Monster
Pilot Weight 190 pounds

1299 S

The front was too soft so I went to max spring preload and turn counter clock wise like this.
Front spring 5 turns CCW ( was 12 initially )

Rear
setting : FLAT
the rear was way too hard

so I did the following : reduce the spring preload by 2,5 turns
I rose the rear as well to have an easier to turn bike ( not necessary if you stay on roads )

so the RACE parameters for the DES are as per the attached picture
The Sport settings as per the picture give good settings for bumpy tracks

this gives gives the bike a much better behavior

So.... I have a 1299S and I like all the settings in Sport mode but like the throttle response of Race mode.
I'd rather modify Race mode because I need Sport mode to stay as is for heavier traffic commutes. I've set the Race Mode's ABS, EBC, DWC, & DTC to mirror Sport, but not sure of the DES settings.
I'm wanting to set Race Mode's suspension settings, DES, like Sport's suspension settings.
What should my customized Race suspension, DES, settings be?

Fork:? (Softest, Soft, Default, Hard, Hardest)
Dampner:? (Softest, Soft, Default, Hard, Hardest)
Shock:? (Softest, Soft, Default, Hard, Hardest)

It would depend on the track you are at. On a really bumpy track, I woud think Default might be best; on a really smooth track, I would try harder and hardest and try the combinations of those two settings, by changing the front and the rear independently. i.e., try harder in front and hardest rear and see if it works better than hardest and hardest.. then try the reverse.. hardest in front and harder rear.. Lap times and chassis feel will let you know what works best for you.

Sorry.. I should add. I don't do track days on this bike.. Only commuting on the street.
So far I have Default for front and Dampner and softer in rear.

what is the stock rear shock length eye to eye on the 1299S?
I hear 1199S is about 309mm, is 1299S the same?

For my commute, I just put the front and rear in softer and leave it.. The streets in San Francisco are just asphalt bomb-sites and I need all the bump absorbtion I can get. I also run my sag on the softer side for my commute and then stiffen it up for weekend rides and even tighter for the track: 40mm front and 30mm rear for my commute.. That plus the softer setting on the Dynamic suspension works great for me at 195 lbs.

Cheers.
