Well I checked my numbers again. Front is the same as I wasn't messing with it (it's in that 30-40mm range, about 35). I had set the rear to 35mm as well but it's more like 40 now after I backed it out. I think I need to get that back to 35mm and start adjusting my compression and rebound damping.
I really just wanted to check with everyone here as far as if the shock I put on was close enough to really "working" length-wise. It sounds like short of a Penske I'm not too far off the mark. Also I should clarify that the roads I ride involve some pretty gnarly bumps/potholes/washouts etc. so I may be asking a bit much of the suspension. It has occurred to me that an XR650 may be better for this route at times
and DarkHorse, yeah I agree on not dropping the front forks. I think I had seen that mentioned when people went to a 70 profile front which I've already done and I didn't care for it. I'm back to a 60 and prefer it. I only brought it up in case I was leaving any stones unturned.
At this point I'm just going to enjoy it and take it up to RaceTech when it's convenient.
