The bike has always been very plush for me but I didnt know enough to mess with it when I bought it and rode it as is.
I hardly rode the bike with the std suspension, it was serviced & revalved almost as soon as I bought it (second hand). The OEM shock was not leaking but only had about half the oil volume it should have - ex-factory. This is consistent with the fork oil levels often found in new bikes, too.

Read the Koubalink FAQ #7 for some explanation of -ve effects of lowering links, and also the RaceTech Lowering page. Then read this post for empirical data and more explanation of the problem.
