I wish all you guys would create a signature line and put the year/model of you bike there... can't remember who all has what bike and we've mentioned this many times.
V6, your '07 is undersprung, need fork springs to start... consider a Gen3 rear shock if you haven't got budget for an aftermarket... this Hard/Soft thing is, well, I don't know why Yamaha didn't go with adjustable preload instead..... bottom line, is you're trying to compensate with damping for undersprung to start with.....
The standard setting of 12 is wimpy... I usually say start with everything at 8, then adjust 2 clicks at a time either way, test it, adjust again, test it, get down to tweaking at 1 click... using riding experience over the conditions you ride in most. Rear shock is going to end up less than 8 most likely..... agree on tire pressures, keep them up.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
