I recently took my son for a ride. The first time I've taken a pillion in 20 plus years. I increased the preload to 4. It was like riding a unicycle. So light had the front become. I asked him how much he weighed.(15st7lb) he replied. I weigh 14st   So I increased preload to position 5. This helped a little , but at low speed it didn't half wobble

Since I've actually measured my rear sag I dialed my preload to the 6th notch, for riding solo. If you take a pillion, don't be afraid to take it up to the 7th notch.  Springs do wear.

Riding slow and in control needs both feet up always and a little rear brake fighting the throttle to tighten things up... as for pillions see here >>>
Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snake bite..... and furthermore always carry a small snake.   W.C.FIELDS
