I'm wanting to do a full thorough suspension adjustment on my R1, because it feels too stiff when riding (I think, still newish to riding). I weigh 160lb. I'll set the Spring Preload all the way to the softest setting possible. Pull the bike up to get any sort of tension off the springs, and I'll go and sit on the bike and get into riding position with my legs on the pegs and in a semi-tucked position as if I'm riding. I'll carefully get off the bike and check out the zip-tie to see how much it's fallen. This is what's baffling, it's only 1/8 of an inch down....... Huh? As for all the other settings, I haven't gotten to setting those yet but I temporarily have them at the manuals suggested "Standard" settings.
