:lol: No I realize that the front number plate and bars are gone, I'm referring to the suspension clickers.
  • Revised race-oriented suspension damping settings optimize front/rear balance
• New Separate Function Fork (SFF) separates springing and damping functions for less weight, better performance, less friction and easier adjustability
• Fork now allows external spring preload adjustability
• Super-hard titanium coating on the outer surface of the inner fork tubes reduces friction and improves suspension action. The increased surface hardness also helps prevent scratches and tube damage
• Friction-reducing Kashima Coat treatment on the inside of the outer fork tubes contributes to smoother suspension action
• Wrap-around fork tube guards provide greater protection for the inner tubes
• Revised shock damping settings offer increased absorption performance and greater stability on corner entry thanks to reduced rear-end kicking
• Features Kashima Coat on the inside of the shock reservoir for reduced friction and smoother suspension action
• Rear shock features dual compression adjustability, allowing high-speed and low-speed damping to be tuned separately

:thumb: Thanks CDA.

I'm just not sure why the forks aren't the same, I always thought they had to be symmetrical.

The left side says S - H (Comp) and the right says S - H (Preload)
 
On old forks there was not enough rigidity so you had to have the same springs and damping on both sides. If you didn't you could get all sorts of weird deflections in the front suspension. With today's large diameter upside down forks this is no longer the case so you can separate functions into one fork leg. That said it's a great way to get people to buy new bikes. Those forks might work well when new, but add in some fork bushing wear and all those weird deflections will start to appear. Not only does the high sturng engine wear out quick, so do the forks.
 
You need to add one of those to the Stable TWS, and then let me ride it...:smirk: I'll be gentle I promise :devil:

If I could I would And Yes You could take it for a spin. Gonna Wait for awhile till the price drops and all the bugs if any get taking care of. Oh yeah! I need to lose 30# before I part with the 450:lol:

:thumb: Thanks Cleo, that's making sense now.

Ok now I REALLY want to try one. :cry:
 
:finger: :moon:

Your damn right it isn't an XR! Better keep these techno-puppies on the MX track or put factory tow straps on them if they do any serious woods riding! :thumb:
:smirk:
:poke:Had to :poke: some fun.

Xr guy's and 2strokers are all the same.:smirk:

When you pry the XR/Premix out of my cold dead hands will I give up the XR/Bean oil.:P
