      I agree with you and it applies equally to the current new generation of tradies.

          I'd say the cc, most of the oc and 19on xplor are very good as delivered if your in the correct weight range (75-85kgs fully geared up including a full backpack if carried).
          4cs worst followed by the17 xplor.
          As most are outside this a tuner is needed. Faster riders and racers will just about all seek a tuner to get better performance.
          Never ridden cv48 but they are top shelf expensive options.

            You've heard the old chestnut about engineers??

            You can always tell an engineer.....

            But you can't tell them much !!!!

            I've just finished rebuilding 3x Fox shocks from a SxS and a quad. All of these shocks use a 5/8" shaft, yet they all have different seals. A lack of generic parts is a common issue with the Fox shocks.

            Apparently, Fox USA go through a lot of engineers. A freshly graduated or newly employed engineer needs to prove themselves. Sometimes they do this by reinventing the wheel unnecessarily. Perhaps this is what is happening at Fox, and maybe even at WP.

            At least WP, Showa and KYB continue to use the same shaft seals for years. It makes my parts inventory and rebuild times much better than with Fox.

              Sometimes engineers are made to use what is currently held in the factory inventory.
              This great for those of us who stick with a particular brand of motorcycle and are able to move accessories and spares onto successive new models.

              Nothing wore annoying than a brand that continually changes the size of things like wheel bearings, seals and the like.

              For example, I have been able move my Scotts Damper through a range of KTM's since 2003. The '19 500 required a bit of modification to fit the post bracket, but nothing too serious.
              NO WUCKIN FURRIES.

                I'd second that CC seems best for the faster guy, OC much nicer for enduro and trailriding.

                Early xplors and 4cs are the worst
