My advice; get some hours on that thing before passing judgement. Like a good wine they get better with age ;-)

Just ride her and enjoy mate, I got my 14 a few month ago and have put about 8hrs on it up to now and it's just starting to feel right. Suspension takes a while to bed in so don't be disheartened after the first few rides.

Not sure I follow your questions, but a new thread may be your best bet in getting an answer to them.

Back to the '15... Like others have said, go ride it and put a few hours on it before getting too crazy with trying to get it perfect. I struggled quite a bit with my '14, trying to get the forks to work like my well-worn '11 did. I was all over the place with settings and finally, after about 7 or 8 hours, it started to settle in nicely. There are a couple good threads about suspension settings for the '14. I don't have the direct links handy , but should be easy enough to find. Have fun. It is a great bike.
