Well...like I said in previous post, its a really good system. I think you'll like it, Chi. But, it does need more high speed damping for rough conditions. You should discuss that with the Traxxion folks. It takes the head-on bumps well, but really blows through the whole stroke on a two wheel airborne landing.
I'm 5'9" and 175lbs. We sound very similar in size, pack loads, and aggressive riding preferences. Though, I'll have to pass on the high speed, slam-dunks on dirt roads. You win in that regard....I forfeit.
p.s. Yeah....I would definitely recommend the Ohlins be serviced at this point. Worth every penny to freshen it up. Especially, since your revamping the front-end.
