Custom dynamic can get you close. Plenty for most casual/occasional track day guys.

Custom fixed can get you closer, if you're willing to dial it all in yourself, and tweak and tune as you go.

Plan to change pre-load a bunch, if you haven't already.
Thanks from RODOLFO

Thanks man

Haven’t change preload yet

Getting quite a bit of head shake during the straight, thing I need to add some rear shock preload

Also lifting the rear tire during heavy braking, will brake support help with this?

For my weight, 195lbs no gear. I had to add a bunch of rebound, compression and preload to the front. And reduce all three by a bunch at the rear.

I'd share my settings, but I'm still working it out some. I may need to change springs and shims. And possibly play with my fork height in the clamps.

For custom dynamic, I was running the front full hard, and the rear full soft. With the above notes on preload.

It wasn't enoughh for me still. That's when I switched to fixed.

Yes

You are right, the problem is the front is too soft

I am 187 lbs without gear

And the rear sims fine or a bit stiff

But the front lacks support under braking, and on the straight i get headshacke very easily

This must be a Ducati thing, my Multistrada is too soft in the front as well, but just about right in the rear. lol
