On another subject:

Can I ask you what tyre pressures you've been running? I recently put the rally raid evo1 tanks on the front, which makes things heavy - just wondering how your tyre tread is wearing.
Tire pressure? I run close to max of the tire. I find that the tires last longer and you don't get as many flats. I would rather struggle a bit in the soft and not have to worry about that random rock that will bend your rim and pinch your tube.

I know what you mean about it being heavy up front. When I have my gear on the back I don't notice. If the bike is unloaded, I will leave the front tanks empty and it feels like the stock 690.
