For what it’s worth, here’s my take on the Stock to Stelio shock swap.

Since we are about equally heavy, I'm curious to know which version of the Stelvio shock you have (NTX or pre) and which N/mm-ratio your spring has got. Smile

Did you find tyre pressures help as have mine at the factory 36 -42.

Funny, the user manual values for my 1100 are 33.4-36.3 psi. Did Guzzi find out a better pressure setup or did anything change to justify the increase of pressure suggested for the 1200?
At 75kg on Pilot road 5 and with a stelvio shock, I've experimented both with the fork height and tyre pressure.
At higher front tyre pressure, I loose traction relatively easily when riding aggressively. I've not experimented much with rear pressure.
I run 2 rings showing now and the curve entry is quick. The bike can feel a bit wobbely when leaned and throttle usage is not smooth (though this is more my fault than the bike's). It's also easy to make here wiggle the rear on a straight line when shaking the handlebars, enven slightly. Rising the fork more through the clamps makes these issues worse. Lowering them solves the issues a bit but then quick side to side switches feel slow and I have quite a lot of that on my local roads. Maybe experimenting more with tyre pressure can find me a good middle ground.
