CRF Susupension

After months of waiting for SMR magazine to be sent to me in Australia from my sister in was all worth it. I now have lots of questions........

My question is....has anyone done the suspension mods to their bike similar to Bostrom's CRF? By that I mean revalve/heavier springs, but not lowered the suspension stroke, only lowering the bike slightly with an '02 link arm and by lowering the forks in the triple clamps?
It seemed simple - I just wondered if anyone else had tried it.
Also - it seems like a lot of people are using the CRF in the states - has anyone tried putting a 5-speed tranny on their bike? I know a guy who has a YZ with a fifth gear fitted.......I was just wondering if the TLD team etc still use a four speed gearbox?
Is the jury still out on a 5.5" rear rim over the 5" rim?

Are there many differences in setting up and 04 to an 05?

Are you using the stiffest springs available? 0.49kg fork springs? What about the rear shock?

And is there a general spec for valving - because there aren't too many suspension gurus in Australia on the west coast who know supermoto.
