Has anyone else noticed/felt that the rear suspension on the FJR (K5 in my case), has rather poor compression damping?

Occasionally when I have felt like hammering some corners, I will be close to dragging the pegs, when I might hit a smallish "yump" mid-corner, and then suddenly the pegs hit the ground. This happens regardless of the hard/soft settings on the rear.
I don't mind dragging the pegs, but when it happens due to a sudden compression of the rear end, it becomes disconcerting.
There is no way to adjust compression damping specifically on the FJR's, is there?
