Hi guys, I'm considering buying a 05.5 (basically an '06, I believe) 950. It's in great shape and is setup exactly how I want it with the exception that I'm tall at 6'5 with longer legs and I'll be using the Adventure pretty heavily off road and aggressively so I would like it to have deeper legs and higher clearance. My other bike is a KTM 520 that I take through hell and back, so the idea is seeing how well the 950 can perform as well. My fellow Utard friends call them BADB's, "big ass dirt bike," including the 950 adventures, so I can believe it I suppose... Q1: Are the regular adventure suspensions in demand and do you often find people that want to switch from those who have S models? It seems like the logic for lowering the suspension for the '06 models was for better all around handling, correct? For those of us leaning more towards off road, does it seem like people would be willing to trade? Q2: is the swap the best method, or would it be easier/cheaper to send off to have those extra legs put in? Q3: like anyone else I'll be riding it on the roads. Does the extra legs of the early models make it handle much worse? Q4: Because I weigh probably 230 or so, do I need to change out the front springs? Seems like the rear springs are OK. If so, what weight rating... I can change these out easily and don't mind... Q5: I think they are all 48mm forks. Does it make any sense to switch to a fork out of a 530 or something like that? Mostly just wondering... Q6: I may have an extra set of triple clamps and steering dampener off a 525. Would these offer any benefit/usable for the 950? Q7: Anything else I may want to know for a '05.5 / 06, please let me know. I'm all ears, especailly on technical riding. I'd also love a 690E but not going to happen in the configuration and cost I'm looking at. So 950 Adventure it is, and this will work well, and will be nicer for the roads... thanks!
