Because the brakes are awesome? Or because you bent the originals?

Re: anybody seen this before

I do not think that the forks are that much different. If anything, I would assume that the newer forks are going to be (maybe) better and/or stronger and maybe lighter than what came on the 929's originally. I would assume the plastics are still for the 929, or did they swap those for R6 plastics too(which would be insane). I think that would be ugly as hell myself, but w/e, I don't like streetfighters either.

Probably because the 600 forks are better?
