Thank you, and I know exactly what you mean about suspension problems. A couple years ago I was chasing a "wallowing" feeling on my old 749 and 2 different suspension specialists couldn't figure it out. Finally, by chance I ran into Jim Cambora at a CMRA event and asked him to take a look. He diagnosed the problem in 1 minute: chain was too tight and was preventing the shock absorber from working its stroke. I loosened the chain and wallowy feeling went away. But I racked my brain in frustration for months trying to figure it out.

Don't give up, you'll find an answer, and in the process become a suspension expert.

Thanks for the eval and feedback, Bryan! Working on the areas of improvement next.

To those interested, I've edit Bryan's footage with my own during the evaluation session. I've heard nice words from L3 riders in the two sessions I rode with them, so it sounds like the bump was a good decision.
