I'm 11 stone.

It's just the pressures i like for road riding, I mostly use the street for fun so always going quick enough to get some decent heat in the tyres.  They aren't massively low really as book for them is 34/36 for a single rider i believe isn't it?

 Book is 34 front 42 rear,theres nobody on this forum so fast on the road that they need track tyre pressures on the road.maybe with only being 11 stone isnt helping but you did say your test bike was fine,if I were you I would inflate your tyres and return your suspension to road setting then give your self a few hours on your favourite roads with pen and paper & tools from your bike to adjust your suspension 1 click out at a time because 1 click makes a difference the RS suspension,Ive been though similar to you by going to comfort settings which are ok if your pissing about at 40 mph but can feel choppy but hard still as it feels like the rear is hard when riding quicker,if you cannot sort it yourself ask your dealer how the test bike is set up or go to a suspension specialist,I wouldnt let this get you down all thats needed is some time and thought on your bike.

42 is taking into account for a pillion, for a single rider its far too hard.

Track pressures I run 28/29 on my Daytona when its on SCs.

Im not the OP here just commented agreeing I find the suspension quite harsh for our roads and I believe for me its spring rates.

On the right roads the bike is ace and I absolutely love it.

I'm same weight and find 32/34 ideal like you, but had to respring the shock and fitted a linear linkage. As you prob know preload does nothing for comfort although plenty think it does for some strange reason.

Changing the rebound is the real help

I don't have my rear tyre above 38 it's nice to let it be able to cope with the crappy roads.
The rebound on mine lead to the suspension packing down.
Mucho nice now
The seat well only became and issue on the long run to and back from the peak District

First thing to adjust is the preload front and back. If the preload is set wrong for your weight the suspension will not be working in the right range of movement as designed. If you can't get the sag right with the available adjustment then new springs get you must.
Damping. If you increased the preload then the springs are operating under more stress so the forces are greater so you need more damping to compensate at the desired setting. This is why mine, with lots of preload added and the damping set at "road" all round, is in fact a soft/comfort setup for me. If an 11-stoner jumped on my bike they would find it tres uncomfortable and not unlike a plank.
When its setup right you just go faster without noticing, and if its wrong you wont feel comfortable at any speed.
