Don't over think it.

Your bike looks in great shape.

I'd be tempted to check the valves, and do an adjustment if necessary.

Revised Pricing

I have just got more attractive pricing on the Nitron Adventure Shock from another vendor.

Also good pricing on an Ohlins alternate.

I am hoping to order in about 7 days.

Good luck

Everything comes out.
Everything goes in.

I used 5w. ( no problems )

400-420 ml sounds right.

If you need the instructions, I may have them somewhere.

Battery or Rotor

How old is the battery?

Could also be a rotor ( alternator ) issue. Do you see any change in the voltage readings when you hold the revs steady around 3500 ? You may need an extra set of hands.

Are you setting up a temporary spray booth ?

Be careful for air borne partuculates in that initial drying phase.

Looking forward to seeing the results.
