What's a geometry issue? A local shop can only set my front and rear sag. About compression and rebound, how would they know what to set unless they were to tag along with me to track and I can give them my feedback. That's why I followed those shitty web-based recommended setup and I adjust accordingly on my riding feel. For my forks I didn't really adjust. I only adjusted the sag for my rear shocks and based on my riding feel I adjusted my rear rebound and compression.
The OEM tires are horrible. That's an issue there to start. But it's not like you can't get around on them.
29 PSI may be too low for those tires. I don't really know any recommended pressure to tell you cause the only person I know who ran em at the track was Steve/picpocket until he low sided and never ran em again.
Geometry chnages occur when you move the forks in the triple clamp or add or remove the shim on the rear shock, etc.
What's your weight and what was the setup you got online?
How many steps up the clicker is the rear preload from the lowest point?
I'm sure the front not being planted has a lot to do with your rebound as well. If you've never touched it and it's new, it's gonna be way to fast on the rebound. Every OEM R6 I've bounced is super fast on the front rebound. The valving is so close to being incorrect for the OEM springs that you will almost always end up with it set all the way slow and 1-2 clicks in cause you don't wanna run any adjustment all the way.
A local shop, or you and a couple pals should set your sag. Then you go from there. Nobody has a perfect setup and everyone sets up the bike differently. There's plenty of very reputable people I've seen setup an R6 and try and put the front forks flush in hopes for more trail, etc. Then the bike just runs crazy wide on the exits of turns, but people wouldn't have tried it if it didn't work for someone's bike at some point in time....
Regardless, if you're front end is very low and the rear of the bike is very high, whether it be sag or ride height, you will find yourself running out of rear tire and having plenty left on the front.
It's been said that you eliminate your rear chicken strips by riding fast through turns, etc and you eliminate the front ones by braking into and in turns. It's not 1005 true, but the part about braking into turns forces the front lower on the bike, changes the geometry and you use the whole tire..
But like Azim said, don't worry about your chicken strips unless it's a situation like this where the front vs rear is drastically different. It's hard to use an entire front tire to begin with, so don't sweat if you have a tiny bit left eventually once you set the bike up correctly.
And rider feedback is the most important factor to a bike setup whether it be suspension, engine tuning, tires, etc.. A good baseline is where you start and from there on, it's primarily rider feedback, reading tire wear, and times....
