I can see that your experience from the last build is paying off, everything going smoother this time.

How close is the front tire going to come to the engine and the headers at full compression of the forks?

For one thing I think the 950 uses a 225 length spring and the 450 a 250mm. And with the thick coils it might be tight on the remote reservoir... Maybe you could solve both by making a tapered spacer to take up the slack at the top end of the shock?

I have one of each at home so I can trial fit it for you if it would help.

Cheers,
