Before you spend on a revalve I would try stiffer springs and lighter oil[2.5 wt. at 130 mm from top]. Also ,I do not know if your year of fork has a third[middle] bushing but if it does than take it out and it will work smoother in the choppy stuff.Also if you need to rebuild or reseal your forks consider putting in KTMs hard parts seal and bushing kit which has slippery seals,wipers and bushings.The whole kit is 90 bucks.It is what is stock on 13 models.

Nav tools...

So it's a new day and age for navigation tools... I'll eventually move to a small tablet (8"?) or something, but for now I have ruggedized Samsung Rugby Pro, which is military spec waterproof/shock/temp/dust/etc proof, but I'm sure it'd not like being Fano's unbreakable mirrors. Big (compared to gps) screen, hard wired in, and maps on the 32 GB sd card. I hope i like, but the G Rino will be along anyway.

RAM mount doesn't make a mount for this, so i busted out the quick steel and formed one that doesn't squish all the sensitive buttons...

recon

The inversion has driven me into a moto recon cocoon, and I'm looking at some interesting routes to ride in S. UT when the weather breaks. The pink dashed lines are areas that I'm generally interested in, as they are filling in gaps where i've not toured around.

The pink dashes are only a days' drive away from me. I'm not trying to invite myself along or anything, but if you were to schedule a ride for a weekend I am off....

Actually, dark blue is 0-10 mph and the red is 90-100 mph...
