All FX Nytro models (except the MTX) get an all-new front suspension for 2009. Yamaha found their FX Nytro riders didn’t really want the exact same front end as their race sled, so they tamed it down some to improve customer satisfaction. Ten things were changed, including new shorter a-arms, tie rods, spindles, and ski rubbers. End result is far less bump steer, a 4-degree reduction in caster angle, 15mm more “trail” for a slower steering response, and improved stability and predictability. Steering is more predictable and consistent, it corners flatter, and darting and hunting is reduced. Bottom line, you can now ride faster with more confidence. The difference truly is amazing.
