Did a 6 hour ride yesterday and can't say I noticed a difference, but then again that is the first time I have ridden it since spring (sad I know, but my Husky has got a lot of time on it ). I think I will put the bolt back in just to see. Thanks for the tip.

Bike felt great though. I put it through some punishing stuff that I had not even ridden my small 450 through! I should have taken a picture of a couple of the "roads", but I was having too much fun to stop. Suspension worked overtime for sure! Bottom'd out more than once!

A few from the tamest roads I was on yesterday.





Snow up there! Yikes!!!!
