Just a quick note on the front fork oil, I saw at an earlier post that you have bought the recommended sae10w hyperpro oil, however for your height and weight I'd go a bit thicker, at sae15w. I have hyperpro on two bikes and I used 15w on both of them, contrary to what the dealer said. Mind you the oil only affects the "rebound", the upward extension of the suspension, so a thicker oil would give a smoother rebound after compression. You could swap them at a local dealer as they have the same cost.

I'm 6,3 (193cm) and 90kg (you'll have to convert that ) and the 15w has worked really well for me.
