That's a lot better design for mine, hanging the exhaust off a seperate bracket instead of a stressed frame member that has a direct input into and and feel of chassis flex.

The valve cover is most likely taller on the other side, the cover is wedge shaped like previous years.

This is what i am curious of. But if you watch dungeys bike the cylinder and valve cover is way taller.

That is the new frame. Look at the exhaust mount. No production rule at MEC.

We know this is a pre-lude to the Factory Edition bike we will see for A1 but most have though it's a new chassis, thus the new engine hangers...well, it's not as much of a frame change as we though and more of an engine/induction change.

I haven't put much research into it but apparently the downdraft head is capable of being produced in a much more compact design than the old style. Its hard to believe how much smaller new motors have gotten when compared to one of the first gen Yamaha or Honda motors.

Silencer is about 3 inches shorter....

Yeah, I noticed that too. Compared to the FMF pipe in Anderson's husky, the acro silencer on the ktm bikes looked a lot shorter and wider
