As for the Suspension revalve and spring replacement....any particular reason why? Are they prone to Shitting the bed when you need em most?/QUOTE]

Front fork springs are too soft. Bike behaves sooo much better in the dirt with stiffer springs. Haven't touched the rear shock as it is good for me.

Don't forget a good tank bag.
Hmmm... Yeah....I've been finding the front forks a bit soft under hard breaking...thought it was just me coming off sport bikes.

Also agree totally on the damper....heard it'll basically save you from dropping the bike in the soft stuff.
