The Honda team has been doing a big comparison test between Showa and KYB for a while now. Before MXdN happened, pressure from Honda in Japan from my understanding.

Seely has chosen KYB from what I heard, Roczen has been going back and forth on an outdoor test...I'm guessing they're doing it in SX with him now. I'm not sure what he's using next year yet.

Is there any real difference other than the stickers on the outside?

Can guys like kenny run a KYB shock with Showa forks? or vice versa if they wanted to?

If it feels better in your head you're gonna feel more comfortable and go faster..

But yeah, there are difference between them.

Yeah, but the Showa and KYB technicians would be fighting in the pits. I would think they would be contracted to either one or the other.

Take it to the limit, one more time!

Too bad! Would be nice. Them he could also run a pirelli in the front and a dunlop in the back or a fmf on the right and a yosh pipe on the left.. he could double his sponsers easily!

ANY IDEA IF KENNY IS CONSIDERING MOVING OFF AIR? HE'S BEEN PRETTY SET ON THAT KYB AIR FORK FOR A MINUTE NOW.

Could he just run KYB with no sticker on them, kinda like when RC ran bridgestones when the HRC was sponsored by dunlop?

Suspension is what most of the factory teams money goes into.. Suspension is everything, and you can tell a huge difference between manufactures.

I don't think they would be testing to see which one he likes better if it didn't matter?

I am talking about peoples concerns about what the factory riders use, why should we care what they use? I totally agree that they are testing what he prefers.

I see, so you actually agreed with my post, it doesnt matter what we think they should be on, but it certainly matters to the factory riders....

Ahhh, my bad sorry. Yeah I'm not really sure I think most people just think it's interesting to see what these guys end up with.
