After discovering Geek's awesome thread, "Welcome new 9x0 owners...." http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=769525 I got started on the suggestions it contains: 1. Adjusted the steering stops. It was amazing how far out they were! 2. Removed the rubber foot peg isolators.... 3. Trimmed the rear mud flap to prevent swing arm scoring. Very easily done, trimmed off about 1/4" x 6" off each edge. 4. Drilled 1/8" drain holes in the lower back ends of the swing arm for water drainage, and removed/cleaned/anti-seized the adjusters to prevent seizing and corrosion. And these were the suggestions from reading only the first couple of pages from the thread!! A huge "thanks" to Geek and everyone else for contributing to that thread for us newbies! I'm getting to know the bike and taking care of preventive maintenance type items while seriously "Jonesing" to ride!!
