I loaded my 950 on a trailer with a bunch of dirt bikes this morning. Watched it pull away headed for San Diego. I fly out at 1:30 to meet up with my bike and the boys for a weekend of Baja Madness!

WD isn't a lube and it will soon dry out and be worse. Your best bet is to take it apart, clean it, re-lube it with actual lubricant, then reassemble. It's not a hard fix.

Installed a new Rigid Industries SRQ-2 LED light. It may actually be an X-ray machine though. It completely overpowers the stock light with the upgraded white Piia lamp. Looking forward to trying it out. DAMN SNOW!

You are correct. The predicament was being late for work, aggravated with the sticky lever and a can of anti squeak being within reach. I also realized how flimsy the stock lever is as I watched it during action. It will soon be replaced with a greased aftermarket piece.

Thanks for the heads up
