The only quirk I can think of is pent up jealousy of your brother!!! :ride:

No quirks, just regular maintenance.
I would tear into it, greasing up all of the bearings. Not many people grease up their bikes. If you leave the shock linkage too long, they sieze very quickly.

The grey wire mod works on our Aussie 2005 bikes too. Not sure about your 2003?
