The forks are a brand new set of twin piston Showa's (RMZ250)
Ohlins TXX cartridges.
The rear shock is as Nordie says a DR650 Ohlins that was a let down from day one (like it held no gas )
Built by a total knob head at great expense (over $2000)
It and the forks will got to Frank Pons to be set up properly.
The bike already has RMZ450 forks and triples so the new forks will slot right in.
I might see about getting the travel reduced to around 11 inches.
