Power is the biggest thing that would cost more to get to then upgrading the XT's suspension for our needs. Right now our XT's power is like a CRF230. Plus we already have the XT with options, would be too much to convert over or buy again. I would hold on to these forks if they weren't so dam cheap. Agree with this. I think it would cost a bunch to lower/tame a RR to a lowered XT. We had to lower the XT an additional 2" for the little lady, and could go another 1", easy. I just did the K-9 fork upgrade, along with the Fox shock, and the bike is vastly improved. If the bike was just for me, sure, I would have got the RR. But now this bike is fun for both of us.
