Well I noticed that my SX has na overflow can on it. And the Rear brake stay is THICK and HUGE. Mine had the recalls done at the KTM dock in WV.
I noticed also that when I pushed my shocks down on the quad that they are not too terribly stiff. They remind me of a set of Elkas. The rebound was fast on the front, the compression was decent. The rear pushed down about 3 or 4 inches and rebounded quick. So by the sounds of things, there MAY be different valving in the shocks. MAYBE. Remember guys, I weight 155 with my gear on and 140 with out. And I could push it down with NO issues.

But the bike looks WAY better in person!

Ya they are NOT as stiff as I have heard you guys saying. Either that or you guys are sissys :p
Im not sayin that I am a suspension guru, but I know what it takes to make a shock work good and know when it needs adjustment and where(usually). I just cant wait to take it out and tear it up.

Glad to hear you got yours, hopefully I be riding orange before to long. And btw, Im the same weight as you, so be sure to let me know how you like it after a good hard ride. Most stock suspension Ive had are always way to stiff for my weight. Also how flickable is it in the air, like how easy is it to throw around. :D

Oh I will let you know fo sho! I like my shocks a little stiffer than most shock companies riding specs are for me. But I will have a pretty in depth riding report as soon as I get a chance.

It's interesting that you said it has no overflow bottle on it. I was thinking that I was going crazy. The first one my dealership sold didn't have one, but the two we have on the floor now do..... I was thinking that my memory was wrong but this seems to be the case that some have them and some don't?

They also milled the bottom of the spindle for more clearance at the bottom ball joint.

Well, like the LTR450, the found issues/complaints with the bike on the first batch, so they addressed and fixed the problem on the sencond batch.

I think what I will do as soon as I get mine here to the house. I will make a thread about the SX's 2nd batch fixes so people will know what was addressed from KTM.
