Suspension was set up with revalve and racetech springs by Rob Barnum in SoCal. Rider weighs 155 but that suspension should be good up to 185. Not sure about mileage overall but it was used only for offroad rides never commuted or much street at all. Well maintained with regular service intervals at Berkeley Honda and owner frequent oil changes. Bike is uncorked and rejetted. It will run like a tiger and never let you down when you need power. I have a bunch of other paperwork and info, I can get to you later when I get back from my trip. I also have a factory workshop manual. A few other things, swing arm bearings were replaced not to long ago, spoke nipples on those Excels were getting a bit tough to turn so you should check those for seizing.
