250s can only run off the shelf suspension so its slim pickings really, Roczen won MEC with the KYB setup but that will be full factory unobtainium stuff.

Wonder what suspension Townley will run on the 450? Probably spring sprung showa A kit im guessing.

When I saw roczen at the mec I slow-mo'd it several times to see what he was running. No markings on his forks. How do you know it was kyb? Kyb air or spring?

250's can only run off the shelf ? Your joking right ? In pretty sure no one can buy the shock or forks that any factory 250 team runs

No that's the rules, most suspension shops have them listed on their website. You can ride the same setup as them if the budget allows

E4.2 Forks and Shocks

a. The manufacturer's original concept of either single or double

shocks must be maintained.

b. In Supercross Lites, the replacement and modification of forks

and shocks are limited to the following:

1. Forks and shocks may be either stock or aftermarket units

listed on the Approved Equipment List. This list is available

from the AMA Racing Technical Department.

2. Homologated inner and outer fork tubes, axle lugs,

cartridge, and piston rod must be retained, modifications

are permitted. All other fork parts may be replaced.

3. Homologated shock body, shaft and reservoir must be

retained, modifications are permitted. All other shock parts

may be replaced.

4. The AMA must receive written notification from the

manufacturer of any superseding of controlled parts before

those parts may be used in competition. The

manufacturer's parts list reflecting the superseded part

must accompany the notification.

5. Approved forks, shocks, and superseded parts must be

available in the U.S. through dealers or distributors to AMA

Pro-licensed Supercross Lites riders for the entire current

season. A dealer or distributor must fill legitimate orders,

accompanied by a 50% deposit, within 15 business days of

receipt. Failure to fill a legitimate order may result in the

canceling of the component manufacturer's homologation.

6. Retail prices of approved forks and shocks may not exceed

the following cost exclusive of all taxes. (The forks and

shock assemblies must be complete and functioning

assemblies, not only the controlled parts.)
