I found the Stock rear too soft at 69 and upped to a 72 spring. I weigh 175lbs without gear. I find most KTM's are pretty high in the compression damping. I usually turn the Compression down immediately.

I have found with the more miles I put on the bike, the suspension gets smoother. I guess that can be said for most bikes.
I find most KTM's steer way different than the Japanese bikes. Do you feel that you need to be farther forward to get the front end to not push? Can you describe how the bike feels in the whoops? Are you having trouble staying on top of the whoops or is the back end tossing about?

Once again, More throttle needed? j/k
