I have a Scotts on my YZ 250. I have always liked the Scotts better in the past as I liked to run it on a low setting on low speed and let the high speed dampening save me on the big hits.

The older GPRs seemed too stiff even in the lighter settings. This new one, "Version 4" is much better. It feels real similar to the Scotts. I tried it on a friends YZ 450 and it felt good on that bike too.

I usually run mine in setting number 3 with everything else stock.

Fitment was real good and I have over 1000 hard miles on it with no problems. It did raise the bar about a 1/2 inch and I had to reroute the clutch cable, but the directions included were good. I would say, though, in addition to their isnsturctions, that you remove the metal bracket the odometer moutns to and just mount the odometer directly to their spacer. The clutch cable was chaffing badly on the stock odo bracket.

I like it alot. When I bought it Scotts didn't have a mount yet. Is the Scott's mount an under or over bar mount?

No more centralized pinion on G450X?

Apparently BMW factory team is already running adjustable drive pinions:



Someone with the knowledge of German read this.

From this article looks like the centralized pinion was too much of a compromise (good for fast speeds bur poor for slow speed technical riding?). I.e. G450X proved to be excellent rallye bike (fast offroad) while suffered in slower more technical WEC.

Anyways, they say something about adjustable pinion prototype being tested on factory race bikes. The swingarm and pinion are no longer one part. Now you can adjust it's position according what conditions you're riding in. Basically adjusting the frame geometry.

And they say the later successes (podium spots) in the WEC came because of this design and other modifications?

Anyone can translate better?

As i read it.
For romaniacs and erzberg the normal (as it was) is perfect.(normal conditions)
For more high speed wec the new setupis better because of the extreem high speeds and extreem slow speeds and in combination of a "gevorderde=experienced rider.

but how do they do that, is there an extra countersproket?? there almost no room ther to go forward??

It would appear they are moving the engine within the frame. It looks as though there is an offset bracket at the middle engine mount in the top of the above picture cut off at the edge of the picture,.........interesting. High speed is where I am really comfy on the bike, slow technical stuff is what is getting me on it, but now that it's sprung much better it's turning mucho better in the tight stuff.
