Guys are jacking up the FTS spring, moving the front torque arm location down, adding a Khaos limiter strap. I’m wondering if the PRO length spindles would fix it all????
When I did a drop and roll on a turbo Pro the front end got way to light. I installed AXYS spindles and it tamed the sled down tremendously. Would going back to the PRO spindles………fix this heavy feeling front end cheaply?

A few years back I put offset ProRide spindles on my 2016 AXYS. I really liked it narrower and lighter. The only downside is the less clearance.

How much shorter are the pro length spindles?

...., plus the lower compression pistons .......
Pistons/ heads same compression ratio.
Different part numbers are for more material in piston dome.
Different part number in head for different size cooling port to Throttle bodies-- head volume, comp ratio are the same.

Khaos limiter and revalve shocks is all that’s needed for a Pro Matrix. Perfect balance between the 2 sleds.

I know you know this Tony but Cranking up FTS is a test to confirm next steps. Not a fix.

We went through the same changes going from Dragon to Pro. Excuse me while I pat myself on the back from my last years spring ride impressions of the Matrix.

Coil packs are now a thing too. Spongy throttle response, fouling plugs. Are they buying them from the same vendor as Honda vehicles?

You can lead a horse to water…..but like horses, people don’t always comprehend English.
