It would not be ideal, that's for sure.
But what be very interesting to see, is a comparison of the 02/03 : 04+ models.

The front end was doing a pretty good job staying on the roller. The back end was having a hard time tho. Brutal, for sure!

There are just way too many variables involved for me to ever even try to figure suspention set-up out. The best riding bike I ever had was my 01, 929 with forks that had been re-done by Dan Kyle's shop (probably LDH's handiwork) and an Ohlins on back. Rode great, and handled really well, even for a slug like myself. I sill regret selling that bike.

Don't sell yourself short.
And it is very much something that is built upon over time.
There is nothing wrong with rudimentary beginnings.
Even if one relies on a paid expertise, it's good to know at least the concepts involved.

I've reworked my front end twice in the past 2 years and each time it makes a nice difference. First time was a huge difference just because a seal allowed water into the forks. Then a new tire and actually did some adjustments and it really made a difference.

It takes time to get it all down. I only know a bit about the front, basically nothing about the back. I do know it makes quite a bit of difference. I got some tips from two clicks out (Dave Moss). Someday I hope to understand it all better.
