Picked up my 2019 yesterday and took it for a quick spin breaking it in, even at 250 lbs the suspension felt really stiff up high but blew through quickly after. Bike is a rocket ship, got there at 6:30 p.m. right as the track was closing after they didn't groom all week to prepare for Southwick so tough to get comfortable on the new bike.

Where did you find one? I was told they aren't due in this district until September. I found that hard to believe.

Team Green dealers get one early which we did last week and the rest of them come in around mid July. Whoever had said that isn't that well informed. I got it from the dealership I work at Pilgrim Powersports in Plymouth.

I got mine two weeks ago in Placerville CA. Love it, completely different bike. I'm 190, the suspension was perfect. Better than my '16 with Factory Connection, with spring conversion.

Only thing available at the moment is shrouds which is $402 for a set, air filter is back ordered. Front brakes are the same and can't tell the rear yet, Twin Air says filters in three weeks. I just got mine yesterday but I'm using a dust cover from my 17 that fits close enough to work and cleaning the stock one. Oil filters are the same, shock springs are the same. Front number plate and fender also the same

I already got levers and an air filter. Your dealer needs to call the Kawi line and they will hook the dealer up. Also ‘18 skid plate bolts right on.

Both wheels different from the 18 or just front?

Rear is a different part number but seems like it will fit

If anyone in New England is in the market, I’m at Enfield Motorsports in Connecticut and I just took our first one off the truck today.

If you're ever riding at Wareham MX we are only 20 minutes up the road

Guy on IG said his '16 FMF slip on fit perfect.

It’s worth the ride out, place is pretty fun. Gets super rough, dirt’s good, jumps aren’t so gnarly that you’re gonna kill yourself. Fun stuff

Much better than the KTM's I've been able to ride, a lot more feel and not so much just on and off

In this video I was in third for the jumps just coasting since it was my third lap on the bike. Once I got more comfortable I could easily jump everything in second which I would never be close to doing on my 17.

Just sat on one at our local dealer. Incredibly narrow, good ergoes. A few dealers hear in the Sac area have them.
I didn't do any price checking. Probably will after I hear some ride reports from vitards.

Rode one Sunday. It’s so much better than the 18. MGX Unlimited has graphics for them as well too. Just finished up the template last week.
