Just returned from Odessa, Washington and the Desert 100. Had a great weekend, fantastic riding, great friends, everything you could hope for. Report here; http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=21141413&postcount=294 As reported previously, the fork oil had been changed out for Honda #10 weight fork oil, 500 cc per leg, or approx 135 mm oil height. A few shorter trail rides indicated improvement, most notably the choppiness on pit run (gravel or road bed-rock approx 4" diameter) was gone. Experimenting, I also cranked down the rear shock compression damping to within 5 clicks of full and rode some more. Me like! Then my buddy Luke rode it and said he thought the back end was kicking on rebound and should be ajusted for that. We talked it over and decided to wait until we were out in the desert and could adjust and check on the fly. We turned the rebound adjuster (at bottom of shock, just above link) in and out just to see where it was at and we were within 6 clicks of full rebound. Got out to the desert and during Saturday's poker run, stopped at the first check and screwed the rebound in to within 2 clicks of full. Now we are getting somewhere! She is no longer kicking like a mule coming out of the whoops, much more stable and forgiving. The next day, rode the D100 (I'm a super senior so only had to ride one 50 mile loop, but trust me, this course is very tough). She behaved very well, I'm thinking the bike is as good or close to as good as I can get until rebuilding the suspension with gold valves front and rear. We have not pulled the front fork plugs (yet) and are assuming that they are at the factory setting of 11 clicks (out of 22) and they do seem fine now after the oil change. Will pull and check these just to be sure. Hope this helps the rest of you with your setups and by the way, the steering dampner saved me several times, most notably when coming thru a fenced/gated section in second gear, hit a hidden baby head that started to launch me into the fence post and the bike just righted itself, close but no crash. Awesome! Here is one action shot from Sunday's race, very close to the finish line; Happy trails!
