Not only did the Honda get a new frame, it now uses 48mm KYB Pneumatic Spring Forks (PSF), which use air pressure to provide spring resistance in place of steel springs. The new KYB fork is not only 1.76 pounds lighter, there is more room for a new and larger piston in the cartridge damper—32mm in diameter rather than 24mm in the previous fork. Because of this the front suspension system offers more tuning potential. The forks are equipped with Schrader valves atop the fork caps, and standard air pressure of 33 psi can be adjusted within a range from 32 psi to 36 psi—the equivalent of installing softer or stiffer replacement springs. This is key to accommodating varying rider weights and speeds. Air alone fulfills the pressurization needs; there’s no need for nitrogen or other inert gasses. The rear Pro-Link system now features a new shock that’s 14.5mm shorter than before, and it sits lower in the frame to help lower the center of gravity.
