Well I have had my cr about 3 weeks now done about 400 miles on it.went to the dales yesterday which is where we normally ride.I am afraid to report it wasn't a nice ride.riding over roads we have done loads of times the bike was not good spat me of the seat twice and 3 scary  moments the triumph tiger 800 xc  I traded in for this bike just took all this in its stride without even a bit of a twich.cr is booked in at kais suspension  in Atherton for them to have a look at it saterday so let's see what they come up with.the bad thing is all the roads I love to ride I couldn't wait to get of on the cr.just hope I can sort it.tryed backing the preload of and it made a bit of a difference will have a mess with the damping next time I am out.

Is it the latest 2015 or earlier?

I have the opposite problem.

Preload is now on firmest setting.

It's my own fault as I shouldn't be such a fatty!

Hope you get it sorted though.

It's a 2012 model had a thought I backed of the preload on the rear shock and it might be sitting to far into its sag.so will have a mess this week.

Its possible it may be bottoming out if it is.

Hopefully a bit of experimentation may save you a few quid.

I fear a diet is my only solution!
