Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. My upgraded front end is actually OK after tuning it for 3 years, the rear still sucks. Mine is a rallye bike only, don't really use it for anything else.

I have 2 sets of CC forks that I can choose from, but no OC. Can the CC version be set up to be better than the 690 version? Mine has the 300mm travel conversion already.

I managed to climb that dune in 1 go on my 690. Took a 120 m run (130 yards?). Held it on the limiter in 3rd when I hit it then went down to 2nd at the 1st crest.
