Did a little fiddling with the shock, hopefully an improvement

Heading out for another 1000 km weekend, see how all the little mods pan out :D

After 3 days of goodness, 1400 km, the forks are a huge improvement.
Wont be making any more changes until the shock is done as its hard to tell if I can improve the front anymore until the rear is a bit more sorted.
Next will be the shock as it really can give you a good kidney punch every now and then and looses traction on especially the up and downhill corrugations.

Other news...the oil leak is fixed :D
Dash, not so sure, thought I saw some small signs of condensation :(

So glad I got rid of that shit front tyre and got the wheel running straight and true, what a difference :thumb:

Some great riding was had and the 790 is really proving to be the best tool for the job that Ive ever ridden.

So its been 2500 - 3000 km now since I drilled the oil jet for the clutch
Originally when I had a look (on page 2) it was fairly dry, you barely got oil on a rag when wiped and barely any visible oil inside the hub or on the plates.
This has been sitting undisturbed since last Saturday.

Nice and oily, dripping oily :D
Plenty of oil in the hub, and on the plates :thumb:
Still isnt heaps but at least now its lubed and cooled well.
Happy knowing its got good oil flow and unlike 9XX, its made no difference to finding neutral.
