    Who has it? What’s the biggest improvement, shock or forks?

    did you stretch it to 270?

    who did you order from?

    Anything you’d do different?

    We have supplied a number of clients with the Xplor Pro for the 790 Adventure in both 240mm and 270mm of travel. The Pro Components do offer some advantages above and beyond the OEM components such as billet bits, closed cartridge design, cone valve mid-speed assembly, cartridge pressure spring, higher tolerances, and overall better materials. I'd be happy to answer any specific questions in regards to these items.

    Any idea if there are differences between the 270mm Xplor Pro on the Rally coming in the spring and the Xplor Pro 270mm one can buy now to retrofit?

    They are the same, we have stretched a number of pro components to 270mm.

    Not to pirate the Pro discussion, but a quick Q: Can you stretch the OEM components as well to add travel? (On the R, at least?)

    Stretching of the forks is very easy utilizing all WP OEM parts. The rear shock is a bit more complicated and will require some custom specific parts. We have had these in the works but with the failures of the OEM units, we have seen we put effort into nailing that down before anything else was decided.

    that’s good to know. I’m on deck for a Rally whenever they hit in March/April. I’ll wait to see the spring rates - particularly rear - but, my guess is at least the rear is going to have to be swapped.

    thanks for all the info you and others have posted up ... been tremendously helpful and looking forward to touching base when the bike lands to start dialing it in.
