Here's a little video of the suspension differences on the XP900 and the XP1000. There is also a few races in the dirt at the end. Both 2wd and 4wd. Enjoy.
Sorry for the de-rail. But can we re-valve the Fox 2.5 shocks in the X-RS or are they like the XP900? I used to re-valve shocks in my MX days and even the cheap factory shocks could be re-valved.Hard to tell if the suspension is that much better. At least with the xp1000 you are starting with a very good shock and can get it revalved for your riding. Much cheaper than having to replace the shocks, like you have to on the xp900.
Seems the rear in the XP1000 wants to buck in the rear.
I still think the Wildcat will provide a smoother ride.
Either way it is still a nice machine.
I revalved mine myself. I removed the two largest compression shims on both the front and rear. It's almost where it should be now.Sorry for the de-rail.

Of course. It takes the big hits and jumps like stock, but it's WAAAY smoother in the whoops. My head doesn't look like a boble head anymore! I did just the rear first, and that showed how stiff the front was. So I then did the front.Did that soften your compression up?
