From a good source, i was told that the front springs are suzuki's and the rest of the shock is elka. this was on a prototype, so i dont know if it will change or not. Oh yeah, z400acdc is right about the hp. 51 hp stock

I wouldn't be suprised if elka did partly build the shocks because Doug Gust says he is going to race it with stock suspension.

Gusts Replica is shown with Walsh a-arms and stock shocks.

It says on the Suzuki site that the rear shock has high AND low speed compression adjustments.

I would say he's gonna have the exact same thing as the pro bike guys have....stock looking shocks that have internals from people likw Noleen and such.

nah..it has nice internals already.(Huge pistons and thick rods)_ They will just revalve that shocks just like all of us will most likely do to them. You have to understand they built the stock parts strong. If i see them removing any stock part, that is the axle.

I heard on another forum that Gust and Team Suzuki will not be running them with stock suspension. Elka/Walsh are already testing different suspension on them.

I think there is too much money to be made by the suspension guys. They will have their stuff on those bike, and say it works better.... will it really be better who knows. Its like the long travel ( long shock ) debate.

those shox are kayabac and gust and jones are running the new fox shox evol series personaly i am an elka diehard and plan on puting a full set of elka on my when i get it. and as for the stock shox being race ready i highly doubt it they look strong and probaly the best in the stock market but stock will never compare to axis or elka :twisted:
