  1. I'd be willing to spend $500 if I knew it would make the forks better for the riding I do. But based on comments I've read, I'm not sure it will. Plus I also hear comments about this fork not lasting due to internal wearing. It's hard to justify dropping money on something that isn't going to last. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE almost everything about the XT. The motor, the brakes, the smaller size, the weight, it climbs like a goat, etc. I even think the rear shock is good after I got it adjusted to my liking. If you have done the cartridge upgrade, please post your likes and dislikes. I loved Barry's review but there wasn't that much about the cartridge upgrade.

  3. I have yet to find a thread on how great the forks are on an XTrainer. I put 15w oil in mine and pretty much maxed out the pre-load and clicker and it made it acceptable but it's still nowhere as good as the 20 year-old forks on my KDX. I think it's totally acceptable to have this bike as-is to make it more affordable but they should have a model with proper suspension. If they did that for $400US less than the RR I think they would sell faster than they could build them. Beta should hire me!
  4. Thanks ohiodrz400sm. I'm debating on whether to do this upgrade kit or just have Stillwell do the front and the back for a couple bills more.
  5. Has anyone tried this kit yet? I'd be interested to know how much it helps. I am running a heavier weight oil and full preload on mine. It helped it quite a bit but now it's a little harsh and I'm still not confident at speed.
    Must have.
    Worth every penny.
    Lighter than stock.
    A must have for KDX.
    A legend.
    Fit well and easy installation.
