O-ring

profiles

I like the Tourance because it's got a slight more rounded profile than the Anakee and I prefer the smooth turn-in rather than a dive-in. I'm sure this is a slight difference but I thought it worth...

shocks are not interchangeable

The shocks from 2001-2004 are not compatible with the shocks on the 2005-2006 models. They are different lengths due to the change in swingarm.

This is true even on ADV bikes. The responsiveness of my tiger can easily be changed by adding or subtracting preload on either end of the bike. More weight on the front wheel makes for faster...
