2 Clicks Out: ZX-10R check up

Dave first tuned this 2016 Kawasaki ZX-10R shortly after the owner bought it new from the dealership. You’ll notice that some adjustments are still good from the last time he tuned it, and others are not. The question is why. The answer to one of the adjustments should be easy based on obvious clues in the video. But the other?

    I need help deciphering this.
    The compression for the shock is too soft now because of shock oil age, it’s getting thinner. But the slower rebound for both shock and forks doesn’t match up with that explanation in my world, since I thought rebound would be quicker with older, thinner oil.

      Let’s use a lava lamps for an example. In a cold state nothing moves much, so apply heat and the oil heats up to eventually move around. Oil oil is thick, rebound will be slow. Hot old oil is thin so rebound will be fast. Add in wind chill to the forks and how cold will the metal be at 60-100mph verses a shock that is bathed in heat from the engine? Hope this helps.
