Front Suspension and Preload on main

Just purchased a 2018 G310GS. I'm 250 lbs. plus I have a 30 liter top case. I set the preload on the main at about stage 10. I'd like to know:


1) What do other heavier riders or heavier loads folks set their preload at?


2) What are people doing about the front soft suspension? Every time I brake I feel like I'm compression the entire shock. I know I'll need to change them but....what are people using?


Thanks!

We are producing a std height fork kit, with heavier spring and adjustable preload caps and have a test bike here in the UK at our factory, or we are in Malvern this weekend for Wales Rally 500 if you would like to feel the difference

Thanks for replying. For some reason this forum is posting me as the user in Sussex UK but I'm actually a different user in California, USA.
