      My YZ & WRf have made me a dedicated KYB fanboi. The main 2 things I'm looking at if I change from my YZ is proper rego and a c' balancer. I can put a elec start on my YZ so that doesn't count. Getting off the YZ after a few hours onto a bike with a c' balancer is heaven. I'm old!!
      5 Berg's & 1 VOR (the black XR) an oily, smokey, smelly YZ 2 stroke and a '20 WRf250.

        After riding a new GG, Kato and WR250 back to back (all with suspension work) you can shove the Yammy suspension up your clacker. Even the WR's owner was disappointed at how much nicer the other two handled.

          I've been saying for years that the KYB dual chamber fork is over-rated. - not bad, but over-rated. Everyone raves about it being "the" fork to have, but I actually think it isn't great on light bikes and on small, choppy stuff.

          I rate the later model Marzocchi dual chamber and the Ohlins OC (in 46 and 48mm) as superior off road forks.

          Haven't ridden a newer Katvarnagas to comment on them.

            Stock the Katvarnagas are horrible and I think this is where most of the 'market impression' comes from. The KYBs have been the same for a long time so tend to feel nicer out of the box. Once they've all had the obligatory spring changes for anyone heavier than 2.5kgs and a revalve they tend to lose their advantage.

            The GG just had springs and revalve while the Kato had a Delsogio kit, springs and valving (basically converts them to a conventional set up). The WR had springs and revalving.

            The WR was very flighty and harsh over choppy ground, and didn't turn anywhere near as sharp as the other two.

            The Kato wasn't a plush as the GG, but handled fast bumps better in the front end and (despite popular belief with PDS) was far more planted in the rear. The GG seemed to be the sharpest steerer, but most likely due to it having the best tyres.

            Power wise, the WR was quite impressive, but the KatoGasbos being tuned 350s were in a class of their own.
