I guess it's been two weeks!

Notice anything that jumps out at you from this teaser? Front sway bar orientation is the first thing that caught my eye.

looks like the anti roll bar is captured between the front pivot and the chassis. Also looks like three hole options for the inner top link.

Front ballstud mount looks a touch lower to me which will be good - plenty of people sand them down a bit in the UK to lower the studs further

Ball cups are different. Sway bar is now four angled instead of two angled. Turnbuckles look thicker, 3.5mm?

edit: And the front shock tower cover is installed differently, no more those two M2.5 screws on the front side of the cover. Probably (hopefully) it is now possible to change front shock location at the tower faster.

And also the shock caps look different. Something sticks out, a kind of jut. Maybe the bleed screw is positioned and aligned differently, like perhaps on the top of the shock cap.

Looking at the bottom end of the front shock I would say it's the 13mm for sure. The diameter delta between bottom cap and the main part of the body is bigger than with a 12mm shock. ;-)

Looks like whatever it is they went longer overall arms and pinched the suspension mounts in narrowing the mounting points. The center of the chassis overall looks narrowing. Everything pulled in tighter.


And nope. Won’t lose that insane teddy bear image either.

I think they are. Narrow pivot long arm with lower inner ball stud mount to equal more steering.
