I did the oring mod on my 07 and it helped alot. I was getting a blubering apon cracking the throttle fast in certain spots on the track, no more. I like a 50tooth rear sprockete and an aftermarkete exhaust system. Oh and youll probley wat to change the stock front tire.

A better front tire is a good idea.

I just picked up an 07 also,does moving the forks 5 mm up make a big difference on handling.

I've had my 07 for a season and I think it does.

What's the easiest way to set your sag? Do you take your sub frame off to get to the shock?

I knock the lock ring loose with a piece of 1 x 1/8 aluminum bar. Then, with the bike on a stand, grab the bottom of the spring and rotate it to turn the adjuster. Relock it when finished.

Lock ring on top of the shock? When I turn the spring the adjuster nut does not turn with it.
