I've had my monster for exactly 1 month and have logged about 3300kms on it.
My question is, I think the suspension feels a bit more "worked in" that what it was when i first got it and wondering if it is normal or requires any adjustment after that amount of mileage? It isn't uncomfortable by any means, if anything it's gotten more comfortable and has a nice feel.

Suspension 101

Your bushings that separate the inner & outer fork legs have broken-in which will allow less inhibited movement of the slider over the stanchion.

Additionally, you my be experiencing temperature fluctuations which thin the oil in the damper unit of the fork. Hotter ambient temps and longer/harder rides (which work the fork oil more), can increase the oil temp effectively thinning it out. This will make the fork generally more responsive in both the compression and rebound strokes.

Enjoy the smoother ride.
