Brakes look to be improved, non drilled rotors & maybe thicker material. Calipers are bigger & colored pads.

Park brake is on each rear caliper vs the seperate disc on the drive shaft.

Shock valving I'm told by a member here is improved....have not had a spin yet.

Seats are noticeably more comfortable & nicer material.

Doors are looking to be very well thought out, structurally & praticaly.

Exhaust, bigger muffler & more blow air from the mag side.

The muffler is huge an it is very quiet  :)

Very short test spin.

This is what you notice immediately, improved ride quality.....the first bump  :) You grab the cage & give it a shake, felt a lot more like the Elka's I had on the UF 800 last season.

Clutching, very smooth engagement & delivery......then the big one......engine braking.....yes! Very good engine braking.

It's noticeably smoother & quieter than ZF 800 EX, combined with a very solid feel.

At this point I'm going to say nicely done, the game has moved up.

Separate engine oil & trans, trans dipstick is easy to get at. Engine dip stick is still painful other than oil cooler lines are not in the way.

The oil cooler is now mounted on the engine using coolant from the engine.

Cdn version c/w four point harness as do all SxS's

Power is good, I'm only comparing to our 800. I've a Razor friend that's just waiting to my kick ass  :)
