So, A few days back I came across the Dave Moss tuning info for the panigale v4s. I followed his advice and played around with the bike . Needless to say I am a believer . This thing rides so much better right now . I’m on the corner of my tire in the rear on the streets ... the bike feels rock solid cornering and I set up my GOPRO on the front suspension to see where the suspension travel was under hard braking and acceleration, cornering under normal aggressive riding . The video showed great response from the ohlins! The front was operating in its mid stroke range and responded very nicely! Unfortunately, the rain cut my riding short as I planned on filming the rear of the bike to see what and how it was responding . I will be back at it tomorrow and will report back .

This may be a dumb question but with the active suspension do you still need to do all the usual setup--like set the sag, etc?

Yes, and I suggest you set it up the way Dave recommends. It is a vast improvement on both road and track.

I am going one step further and will be changing the front springs (ordered).

There are no "dumb questions" ...... only "dumb answers".

Agreed , I would set it up the way Dave has it and film the front and rear and see what’s happening in real time the way you ride . It’s importnat to understand rider weight . I happen to be about 180lbs . Same as the rider used in the video. And yes you need to manually adjust the rider sag ...

Can someone tell me their settings, rider weight w/ gear, where they are happy with the suspension and it's not too stiff but you didn't have to set it ridiculously soft just to ride it on the street and moves a lot on the turns. Also which mode you're in w/ the settings (race, sport, street). I've been playing around w/ my settings recently and been asking around. Oh and I mean for the V4S electronic suspension.

Great Topic to the OP - Thanks

Dave Moss says and I also feel the rear spring too stiff
But the Ducati Omaha website has the following (pls see attached file) (I'm 176 without gear. so maybe 185 with gear)
So the 95NM spring should work for me.
I'm also changing the fork oil to 10w

Here is what I got from Ducati for the V4S. I'm about 195 lbs with gear.

Sag was easy on the V4S, running anything but dynamic mode pisses the bike off. Does anyone suggest good settings in the custom dynamic mode for track day use? Almost wish I purchased the base model. I'm used to manual settings. But, the big advantage is changing back to street mode and letting the suspension really work on the surface roads (very comfortable ride).
