Get the front and rear preload set properly and you should find that the combined reduce saddle height with some suspension sag will make it more manageable. Also given your weight, you should adjust your compression and rebound settings. The standard settings for all modes are very harsh for light weight people. I ride on the track and even in race mode I have had to adjust the setting way low to settle the ride down and minimize tyre wear.
Thank you tteitei! I weigh 50kg, and you are probably raising a good point about stock suspension. I will look into all your suggestions as well as other folks as soon as I get the bike. Still waiting paperwork and shipping.
