Had a phone chat with David Behrends at Fast Bike Industries this morning and things are moving along with the suspension work. He is just waiting on some custom spacers he machined, to lower the suspension 30 mm, to come back from getting hard anodized. The special springs to match the lowering spacers have already arrived. He has been doing a lot of testing with the new L model CRF450 and he didn't recommend spending extra money to revalve, and that the OEM valving would work really good for my vet intermediate desert capabilities and street, with a small adjustment in oil weight and height, plus his settings. That saved me a few bucks. The IMS 3.0 gallon tank and some other bits are on the way and will arrive before I have a chance to actually install them. With any luck, I should be able to wrap this thing up really soon. Itching to see it fully assembled and ready for Mexico.
