Current stock suspension vs. what year works is equal?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering how far the stock stuff is behind the works stuff? For example, the suspension on the 05' CRF450R is equal to MC's suspension back in what year?

i just picked up some leftover 03 kayaba works suspension that feels lightyears ahead of my revalved 04 stuff. i've yet to ride the new aoss 05 stuff(except around a parking lot),the 03 works is probly just as good as the stock 05. i'm guessin' 2-3 years? this is yamaha though.

I owned a Works kit shock that was from Turbo Reif's bike. Believe me, that thing was a work of art inside and out. You might be able to make a stock shock work as well, but the materials and coatings will never be equal.

The shock was pretty enough to hang on the wall.

I have a set of 02/03 showa 47mm works kit forks. They are better than 05 production forks. I am running them on my 05 crf450. Much more plush and more adjustment range.
