No.

On the hp4 there is only 2 spots to manually adjust anything. Both are preload and you turn the back with a 13mm wrench, it's backed out completely and it still only has 3/4 inch sag. If I tighten it it's worse, goes to .5 inch then .25 inch, I eventually stopped and returned it to stock setting on the back.

The front is turned all the way out and we still don't have enough sag, it's about 3/4 inch to.

Going to do some research on the web.

I can't comment on the front issue. As for the rear, my bike came from the dealer with the chain too tight. This didnt allow the swing arm much travel. I couldn't set the sag until I adjusted the chain properly.

Let me know if you figure out a setting that works for you. I weigh about the same with gear on. I get my bike next week and from the looks of the manual it seems a little confusion when it comes to the electronic part.

Sorry... I was thinking normal suspension... forgot you had that electronic assisted stuff. I'm no help there, never messed w/that stuff.
