The available load capacity of the Enduro is 465 lbs (1025 lbs GVWR - 560 lbs 90% fluid). I have rode with definitely in excess of 400 lbs on board with no degradation of ride quality (street). It's possible with the over loading of the tail, with the weight of the gear, you are exceeding that in "dynamic" conditions. The Propilot may be your best alternative or putting your passenger on the second bike.I've adjusted the preload to it's max and run in 2 up, with bags only.. it's still not enough to handle me with full gear and all my camping crap for a week of camping. I frequently bottom the rear suspension over stuff.
Myself and full camping gear, the bike goes down the pavement 'ok'.. not fantastic with only slight head shake at speed. Toss a second person on the back (135 lbs) and things get crazy. Massive head shake at speed. I keep riding and kinda ignore it (I have a CRF450X, so I'm used to head shake! LOL). Me with camping gear off road.. forget about it. Massive bottoms at pretty much every knife edge, big bump or small jump. I won't jump big when off road with camping gear.. too much pain.The available load capacity of the Enduro is 465 lbs (1025 lbs GVWR - 560 lbs 90% fluid).

Nah, quite the opposite for me. I'm a fat f'er... 260 lbs without gear. The bike is rock solid at it's max speed (as measured on the numerous closed courses we have here) when I don't have the panniers on. Put them on and load it up with a pax and camping gear, the bike feels like my CRF in sandy conditions (head shake like a chick on hip hop night at the local club). Ditch the pax and it gets better but still head shakes. I'm 100% convinced they went too soft on rear springs with the Enduro, obviously not planning on Americans riding the darn thing down more than a smooth back road.That sounds like a problem that is not typical but specific to your bike or setup. If you are light in weight but your gear is heavy then there is not enough weight on the front wheel. I weight 250lbs and the bike is rock solid to 120mph(closed course). Sounds like you may want to take the bike back to stock front and back and then have the dealer verify everything is calibrated.
I had a similar problem with my 2012 Diavel. The spring rates of the Marchozzi forks and Sachs rear was overwhelmed by my weight and desire for speed. I tried loading up the preload as well with poor results. Switched to Ohlins front and back and the everything was right. Big financial investment but made the ride perfect.
It would be great if they'd pick up the phone or call back. I doubt I'll be sending my stuff since they can't even respond to a call.no affiliation but I did find this page while look for my 2013 MTS
