upon some thought and thinking there is no way just the FP was causing this issue, I started poking around. Not really seeing anything out of the ordinary until my focus went to the choke cable, I noticed that although the lever went back to the closed position the cable was bound up, looking into the steering stem I noticed a spot that looked like it was smashed, replaced the Choke cable and now this bike handles big hits with ease, even threw in a nice double jump just to make sure. Man I love this 950!! I should have known better.
Wow, this is a significant discovery! It really should be included in the Orange Crush Tech Stickey

My 950 did the same thing on hard hits of three or more in a row. I never did figure it out but I'll bet it was the choke cable. Thanks for the info.
