Well, Ian, to be blunt, yes, you've posted in the wrong place. But, we're DR owners- a pretty laid back crowd, mostly. We're not the sort to get overly clenched if things briefly stray once in a while. And it's always good to see an enthusiastic new member of the DR community.
A better thread to introduce yourself would be here: The DR650 Thread (http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=135295
) Don't be daunted by the size of that thread. Most of the regulars are happy enough to give answers to the same old questions.
If you click the link in my sigline, you'll find all the index topics, including one about common problems, like removing that upper roller.
Welcome, Ian. Tell us what you think of the stock DR650SE suspension
