On the OEM Gen 4 shock, one of the adjustments has far too limited of a range. When I took my bike to a suspension expert for set up, he had one of the settings maxed out (sorry, can't recall which) and he wished it could go even further. The Gen 5 Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion shock (technology that debuted on the '12 CBR1000RR and is similar to an Ohlins TTX according to the link below) doesn't have that problem.
