Seriously?

That may cover more than 99% percent of the owners. Including me.

The DES DAMPING on the 2010-2012 Multistrada uses an inverse scale. I can't comment on the 1199 S but if the manual states so I would think that it uses the same.

I Ride: 2010 RSV4 Factory (Track), Paul Smart LE, 1199 Panigale S Tricolore (SOLD)
Rider Weight (w/o gear) - 195lbs

Panigale Type ( Base or S) - S

Front Preload (total) - 41mm
Rear Preload (total) - 25mm

Front Compression - 15
Front Rebound - 11
Rear Compression - 22
Rear Rebound - 19

Suspension Linkage F or P - F

Rear Shock Length - Stock

Additional Changes and Notes -
This setup was done by my dealer based on 205lbs with gear and in the notes it says the front spring rate is good and the rear is a little stiff. They said this would be a good starting point for street and track based on weight.

I'm only 170 and my rear shock would bottom out with those settings.

Squat like crazy as well.

I'm no expert that's why I'm relying on someone who hopefully has more experience than myself on suspension setup. It didn't feel like it was squatting excessively and it didn't bottom out after 300 mile ride around the mountain. So, not sure what else to do other than continue to try it out. Hopefully the preload is good so its just a matter of fine tuning for my preference but any thoughts you have on this are appreciated.

Thanks

I know my stock 1098 was too weak for anyone heavier than 160lbs. But I actually thought the stock 1199 was outfitted with heavier springs from factory. If I'm wrong and I more likely need a stiffer spring, please advise?

I remember back in the day of the 996, there were two options of bikes with different spring rates. Monoposto and Biposto (single seat vs passenger). I wish they would go back to that option.

From everything I've read and after the setup of my suspension by my dealer I would say at 180lbs your spring will be on the stiff side for you weight.

Im sorry then, I thought you were commenting on my incorrect springrate typo. I wrote 90nm when it should have been 9.0nm.

Oh I misread Evols post. So the spring is too heavy, not the other way around. That's a better situation than when I had the 1098. But still not ideal.

Evol no worries bro. You misread, I misread, it happens. There is no emotion within the internet unfortunately.
Thanks from EvoL
