And it could be something they’ll add to any new T12 when it’s updated. Will, why would I swap automatic, closed loop granular adjustable pre-load (T12), which measures my EXACT weight and adjust the pre-load accordingly, for a four position open loop pre-load that is chosen by the rider?  The four position pre-load will be based on some weight the Triumph designers have decided on relative to the rated load capacity of the bike and the average human (as you would, not poo pooing that).

I'm with you on this! I'm entirely happy with the current Gen 2 & 3 system.......but some folk aren't and think they need factory pre-sets so it would satisfy them.
I believe they wish for pre-sets largely based on previously established familiarity with pre-sets on other bikes, and it's only human nature to be suspicious of, or to dislike, something unfamiliar.

The OP doesn't have a preference issue. As I understand it, he has a suspension capacity issue. Or a defective OEM suspension. Ultimately, I think he needs to have his suspension reworked by a third party specialist company, probably by uprating the spring.

I think what you want is an HD hardtail.   :008:

It still will, the rear spring is not magic, it only has a finite range of adjustment with its designed spring rate. What you therefore need is a different spring rate (heavier) but that will overwhelm your damping so you need to change that and that will confuse the electronics of the TSAS in all sorts of ways. Now you will have a mismatched system to that of the front. Just don't touch it, you will make it worse. If you really believe SAG is very excessive have the dealer check it over. Has anybody put a lowering link on your bike and put an incorrect TSAS linkage rod back in?

When fully loaded this bike will max out on preload at the back and does sit a little lower than regular but it is within design parameters and not excessive. Hope you get it set up to your liking in the end.
