Does it have a fork brace? I didn't realize it made a difference at slow speed until a Montrose CO police motor officer and his instructor declared their DL650 a whole new bike after doing a few figure eights in a parking lot after a brace was installed. Lowering the front by raising the fork tubes 10-15mm also makes steering quicker and prevents high speed aerodynamic lift by the fairing.
