  6. wish they put the dope xsr suspension on the new 09. I'm not digging the whole cafe scrambler look.

    but tbh in this picture, It really looks tough and I would get one

  7. Quoted for the lolz......

    If you're serious you are severely misinformed.

    The suspension on the XSR is largely the same at the MT09 - just softened. Not stiffened.

    Slower acting rebound damping valve (tighter aperture) in front and back.
    That is all.

    I should add - neither Bike has compression damping. At either end.
  8. it's a lot stiffer than the mt09. different springs in the front i think .
  9. The hard part is keeping the front wheel down. lol

  11. As far as I know it's just valving.
    At least, that's per the info I can find.
  12. Good looking bike mate, I sat on one at the Yammy dealer, it fits me well.
  13. It's quite comfy. The first day i got it from the dealership I went for a 500 km ride and i pulled up ok afterwards. If i did that on my old bike I would have been crippled.

  17. Awesome bike. I was very close to getting one but didn't have the extra coin over a used MT09. I will maybe end up on one in a year or so. Love the ergos, look and motor. Congrats.
