Hey,

Looking to purchase cone valves and trax shock for the new FE450.

Could someone please tell me if they will work with new chassis.

Thanks

So the 16-18 model trax will fit the 2019 (18 factory edition) bikes? How come the shock reservoir is in a different postion/angle on the factory bike?

New shock they’re working on, but old one will fit.

Isn’t the ratio quite different?

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

Will the new body style shock be available in 2018 to the consumer.

Jeez I was hoping it wouldn't fit so I could score a good deal on a CV/Trax set up for my 17 350.

I believe the linkage, bell crank and swing arm is the same. They just made it so there’s +5mm more of adjustment.

As far as I’m aware, the production linkage and bell crank are the same, just the swingarm cutouts at the rear are 5mm longer.

ML, since the linkage ratio and shock setup have been similar from the 2016 model, what is your view on the opinion of many tuners that believe the only way to tune the rear suspension with an optional linkage?
