So there seems to be a lot of tall riders on the 950's. So how many of you have had this conversation?

Another revalve right now is out of the question.
What do you think?
Are you capable of completing the revalve yourself? I can supply you with some stacks, as running your clickers that far out, and looking to achieve the change you have in mind will not be completed with a different viscosity oil. Do you know the stacks you have now?

I didn't do the revalve myself, but the local WP guy. He used the complete stack from the tall adv model. Since, I wrote the previous post, I found another combination of preload and dampening which brought all three adjustments closer to mid-way. I now am at -14 compression and -8 (or -10) rebound. I think it is now fine offroad and maybe a little soft on the road (where I ride the bike most). I think they are soft in the high speed valvings. Am I right to assume, that if in the next oil change I use a little bit thicker oil, then I will be able to dial out the low speed behavior where it is now while high speed will tighten up?

Quick question:

Best place to score SAS blanking plates?

Preferred exhaust?

Just scored a box stock '07 with 2859 miles on the clock.

Thanks

My SE came with Leo Vince. If I was buying from scratch, I would go with FMF based on price, or WIngs based on looks. Those Wings look pretty sweet IMO.

You can consider a two into one also, Save a lot of weight and add an ADV-Tank.

I had a warranty issue with a Leo Vince pipe on my KLR, and the way they handled it was exemplary. Sent me a whole new exhaust, I was impressed.

I reckon they have earned my loyalty.

No worries. Glad to get to help. I would send an email to Paul at HDB. He has helped me a great deal. I don't believe my handguards have a spacer but I'm sure Paul will set you up with whatever will work best.

Gotta say, I love my HDBs. I hit a decent sized tree, at speed, on the Frenchmans Track on Cape York.... I ended up with tingling fingers, but that was it.
