I haven't actually done this for my MTS. I've done this for my other bikes in the past. Up to this point, I just made small changes to the preload, front and rear, to get the right feel, over the past two years. Not entirely scientific. With my weight I know I need to upgrade the springs.
If it was a huge problem for me I would have done it already. I was trying to discuss the finer details of the base suspension. All things considered I'm very happy with it. I've never regrets about not buying an S or Touring version.
