Very good info here. I'm glad people are taking this bike seriously right off the bat. At 260lbs with gear the suspension is a little lacking for me. The rear seems to be the worst for me and feels likes it skips and bottoms when you pick up speed. Almost like I'm just dragging a 2x4 behind me. The front feels way better but still I know that the setup is lacking. I would really like to hare scramble this bike and part of that would include getting some better suspension under the bike. Do you guys think a spring and gold valve swap on the front would be good enough or would I notice a better gain with some 250x forks also re sprung? For the rear I'm probably going to go with the racetech shock replacement. Thanks, RAMZ for the great info.

Oh, and when doing the valve service check you can set the gas tank were the seat was without disconnecting the fuel line.
