Could this be the Enzo conversion kit switching it from a WP shock to a WP shock with all KYB internals?

Air shock. It was mentioned on Pulp the other night that KTM group and WP are testing air shocks again.

An European team (Marchetti) that has full factory support from Ktm has been developing a new air shock.
Brian Bogers used it in the last 2020 GP races.
It worked really well and i'm not surprised they're developing a better prototype for SX.

Shorty ran the first "new" version of it some years back. Ran it it for a full year or 2 he did quite well on it to.

He was on fire last rounds but there wasnt any talk about his airshock or rumours.

Stock shock with a race tech gold valve installed by Bump Sticks Racing. Stamp it.

I’m honestly not very well versed in Moro suspension but I could see an air shock being really sweet for SX. As far as MTB’s go, air shocks are inheriently really rampy. I imagine it would be good to have a SX setup be really supple in the beginning stoke (whoops) but have a nice ramp up to have a good platform to not blow through (steep triples)

It's nice to see some progression and development work on modern bikes. The original story was it worked great when it worked and dropped lap times.

Didn’t he miss the last moto of his outdoor career because of a shock issue?

Don't forget Dungey ran one in SX at the first couple rounds and it broke on the starting line of his heat race. Was back on a spring shock for the LCQ.

I was there that night, and he had nothing for Top Jimmy in the LCQ laughing

To be fair... nobody had anything for Top Jimmy in any LCQ.

Was that the LCQ where he went from last to bumping Jimmy Albertson out of a qualifying position on the last lap....or was that Minneapolis during a different LCQ run...Dungey wasn’t in many LCQ’s.

Austrian teams are innovators! And what does Honda have? True dual 250s

Nice that they are back onto this idea. Probably the next area to lose weight that will get them under 220lbs stock.
