I just bought a new 450sxf. I did some research first and saw all kinds of threads/post regarding the WP forks. This did concern me. Before I rode it I sent it in to Enzo suspension. I talked to them on the phone about it and they felt they had some really good settings. Rode it for the first time last weekend. Wow, what a great bike. So happy I moved on from my Honda with the POS air forks. I love this bike and love the suspension. After two rides on two tracks, So Cal area, I can say the bike, forks and shock are all awesome. Not sure how it works stock, but for those of you worried about your stock stuff, it can be made to work just fine. You want to talk about crap forks? try a 2013 Honda, good luck, tried 5 re-valves before I gave up.
