I would hope you could get springs and valving for less than the $800-1200 price difference after Suzuki manufacturer rebate. That said, for the op, I'd prob recommend yzf: successful, mature platform, good resale, easy-to-ride power, nice tuning app, ... more »

He's always been tough to figure out, and has had his share of oddly mediocre performances, even when at his most "dominant." He is probably in the sunset stage of his career, but certainly nobody would be wildly surprised if he threw down a fantastic ... more »

So he has been OK within the last 2 years, right? In 2020 SX, at least, better than ever.

Didn't he win his (only) SX title LAST year?

My WILD speculation (don't attempt to quell): They approached JGR as a potential race partner, and there is already a bunch of Zook motor stuff hanging around the race shop to start dinking around with.
