Well, I'm no expert, but I do love to tinker with $hit...
anyway, my logic is this. Our bikes sit about 10 feet off the ground, which puts a lot of 'leverage' to move the bike around - thus having a pogo effect of sorts.
Our suspension has more travel than sportbikes so the springs are softer - contributing to even more pogo effect.
Most of us ride the our bikes on the street or the track, so we need less pogo effect???
So, to slow things down (suspension movement, not the bike) you would want the suspension to move less and behave more like a sportbike.
To do that, you would go to a heavier weight oil (in theory) if you don't have enough adjustment's to go around, fork oil will get you pretty far...
