33 sounds about right. I run 28 hot off the warmers but that's track day pressure. When you compress the bike are the front and rear rebounding evenly.

It does sound like a rebound problem. You man need to run a bit higher pressures. I run 32 34 and the tires wear pretty evenly on the street. Dave did my suspension at Miller last June.
