I am happy to see the mudflap and instructions!

The tires lasted about 1800 miles.

Good luck
That skating feeling on dirt roads from the MT60's on my 450SMR was what told me there was potential to develop a 950SM into a slider!!

Think this would work?
Omnivore, that lower kit looks to be the shizz, and CHEAP! To include dampening rod$, fork spring$ and a shock $pring for $379?? A dampening rod is $780+, for one... I will be researching that. If it is compatible with our suspension, I am getting one! I don't want it for the ground access, rather for the handling change it might offer for lateral riding.

edit to add:
Don't forget to order fork seals if you get the lowering kit!
