Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do with the stock components. The rear end of these bikes is completely messed up out of the factory. Not only the rear link ratio, but the shock damping AND spring rates are setup for 2 people on board, not a single rider. There is no way to make a shock which works for 200kg (two people) vs 80kg (one person).

The forks suffer from a completely different issue. The spring rates aren't bad, but the bike is over dampened stock. Even if you turn the compression all the way out, its still way too stiff in the front.

Hopefully someone will come on here and give you a setting thats better then OEM. However, to resolve your issues, will require an entire re-work of the rear end and some minor work with the forks. I never found any setting that worked on my 848, but I'm a tiny bit lighter then you are, around 68kg.
