Actually if you own or have ridden one not surprising! Great bike and believe me when I say I thought I would never own one!

Did you get a new yamaha? I thought I remember seeing you had bought a new suzuki. It might be a different person I am thinking of. If so how does it compare to the suzuki

Yeah that's me. Didn't give it enough time but the TAC fork was a hassle for me. Raced a KXF this year and found the PSF  much easier to dial in.  The susp on RMZ in the chop was stiff. Don't know if some of that is still chassis related? Rode a YZF and just felt better. I feel the Yam actually turns better,  I find myself able to carry momentum with much less effort. MX52 front is no longer on bike as it doesn't work in a wide enough range as 403. Bike will light up rear so need to get a tuner and play with mapping. Wasn't considering this bike until I rode one.
