Capturing 22 out ofa possible 32 National Championships.over the past 8 years. But even after another pictureperfect series,with Jeff Stanton and Jean-Michel Bayle finishing 1-2 in '90 Supercross, we decided it was time to examine our suspension system. Again. Three years ago, our engineers turned the motocross world completely upside down. By doing the same to our Showa' fork. This year they decided to ease up a bit. Sotheygave ourfork a smoother action throughout the stroke. They accomplished this feat in a number of , ways. Adding a larger ... ",;,....""".. diameter cartridge and damper rods. Revising the spring rates. Anodizing the inner surface ofthe upper fork legs. And implementing a "spring-abovecartridge" design. All ofthis leading to a fork that works better over a broader range of terrain. A fork that's more precise. And less fatiguing. Proof that winning doesn't really have to be so hard. Still need more proof? Well this year you'll be in for another shock. A Kayaba' rear shock to be exact. Less harsh. More durable. The fully adjustable KYB will help keep your rear wheel where you want it. And furthermore, because of the drama tically reduced linkage friction in our rear-suspensionsystem, you not only get reduced wear, but smoother action as well. After all, we really hate to see our riders , take a beating. ยท Specift ation5 and availability subject to changewithou notice. fbr a tree brochure. see your H c t onda Dealer orwrite: American H onda, [)epllH.
