    Sure sounds like you need to spend a little time dialing it in. I just got back from the san felipe 250. We rode 125 miles the day after the race and part of the ride was on the track they raced on. Some narly stuff my XX handled like a dream. I do have the RG 72 wide suspension.
    Suspenion takes some time but is always worth time invested

I rode behind a friend with a X3 and he experienced no swapping back and forth or anything like that...regretting my purchase right now.
    Just watched YouTube video guy had a brand new Honda Talon and he was fixing the front end it was towed out two inches in the front so another new manufacturer with problems right out of the factory.

    This is the kind of thing that pisses me off you spend 18k for a "toy" it should be ready to go out of the box...imagine paying 60k for a new truck and having to "dial it in"...unacceptable

    Maybe it's just me but isn't that the point of toys to fix, adjust, and add accessories to them. I'm sure NASCAR'S don't come perfect for every driver. I understand your disappointed but to compare it to a vehicle that probably won't be abused like these will be "except for a few of us" it's not very realistic. Like people said before luck of the draw! I think if you tinker with it or bring it to someone who knows how to set up a suspensions you'll have a permagrin! Good luck just for the record I don't know much about suspensions either I've had my issues with my 6" lift on my x but think I've got most of it worked out. Mostly my right foot gets heavy 😂. I'm looking forward to getting a xx some day when the kiddos move out! More power more carnage more tinkering time!

    I think there's a nut lose on the steering wheel. Man i just have so much fun riding my machine and the steering is the best in the business. Never heard or ever experienced this kind of handling on a XX . You smell that!

    I've had something like 35 motorcycles, ATV's and SxS's over the years...I love this car.
    (and I have worked on every one of the 35)

    To be honest...I had to adjust 3 things from new...one door, air pressure and the tow. No big deal to me.

    ...lets say i buy a new ktm - no matter for 25.000$$ or 5000$ - first thing i come home set the suspension , handlebar, levers etc for my kinda ridin- 2nd change the gearing for my kinda ride-and most gotta change the shitty oem tires... not do anything -cant imagine....!?

    offroad ridin requires also little bit of knowledge---you gota know how to fix a tire- change a belt etc.

    I spend at least 1/2 a day on a new bicycle getting the feel correct- seat, handlebars, controls, shifters...etc. Adding stuff like cages, bag, tools, pump...

    I spent about 40 hrs total removing the smog stuff and jetting my 450X correctly, adding goodies- when I got it. Bike still rips 12 years later.
