If you are then a heavy rider, and you like riding hard, what would you do to the stock suspension and how much will you be spending?
If you do stiffen it up, does the t7 lose the ability to put the power down so well?
not expecting owner feedback, but some here must have done some research on this?

There are very few bikes that are not upgraded when it comes to suspension, whether a rider needs it or not.

It depends on your preferred riding, and honesty is a must if you do not want to spend unnecessary money.

I am sure the the T7 will be fine for most riders, but from what I have seen on Youtube left me pleasantly surprised as to where owners take their T7's, and I am not surprised that some of them need

stiffer suspension.

100 pages and no one has put their bum on one in RSA! I was just looking at the  half year sales for Oz this morning. As well as selling container loads of T7ís they are still shifting a substantial number of DRís and DRZís. However in enduro bikes KTM is the biggest seller. They still sell some 150 FJ1300ís here a half year, a very different market.

PS: not all suspension adjustments are made in heaven. I went riding with a guy over the weekend who was complaining about taking knocks from the rear. Turns out he had wound his monoshock preload up to the top limit.

Yes, Ian, I agree, if more riders took the care to understand suspension, and the adjusting thereof, much need for expensive suspension work will fall away.

Here's the first red and white one I've seen. The first bunch of containers must all have been blue. The new KTM styling which looks AMAZING also has this hard and shiny type of (brittle?) plastic. Does anyone else think that it seems to be an incredibly small air filter attached to the new 300tpi? Have they given up on oiled foam?

Can't put my finger on it but there's something wrong with the fairing/radiator shroud. On the white, the blue and the rally colours.

Looks like it's been chopped off in the wrong place. Unfinished.
