Awesome!

Awesome - just watched all 3 parts in HD - thanks for sharing!

Re your shock - they did something wrong when they rebuilt it - maybe too much oil not enough air space - hopefully the rebuild will hold unless they did the same again. You're gonna have to go and ride all the same tracks again to test it!

Anybody out there do Poison Spider or Gemini Towers on a 950? I've done both of them on a XR650R and it was a handful.

The shop fixed my shock and didn't charge me. They said they torqued the reservoir to spec and set the piston to 10mm with a special tool. They don't know why it failed
