ok, then what are some good ways of modifying the suspension and tires to get good traction in the turns and basic road conditions?
i would suggest you modify your riding technique to allow the suspension to do it's job. the best way is to control throttle to allow a balanced load on both front and rear ends at mid cornering. if you are going to slide, slide both tires. try to avoid loading up the front end entering a corner. give it some throttle. also, take note of what gear you are on.
if the road you normally carve up on is very bumpy (rippled), then you need to stiffen the rebound on your suspension. not sure what all you can adjust on your bike. Smoother roads can go softer. But other riders prefer different setups because of how they ride. I prefer softer suspension settings. This requires more consentration on your lines.
also check tire pressure, you don't want it overinflated. not sure if you are familiar with setting up sag. i use zip ties on the fork tubes to measure front sag with me on and without me on. rear sag requires another person to measure.
stock suspension should be fine for street riding.
until you really get to know your bike, i would stick with it's current stock settings.
