Suspension Differences sp1 & sp2

Can someone please tell me the differences in the suspensions. I've heard that the sp2 suspension is better, but never why? I'm looking to buy an RC51 and don't now if this should be a major factor in the decision. I'm 160 lbs. Thanks.

There are differences in the forks and rear shocks, but nothing that should impact your choice, IMO.

SP1s and SP2s can benefit greatly from re-worked front forks and an aftermarket shock.:twocents

isn't there a different swingarm and shocklink on the sp-2?


if so that would be a deciding factor.

i am also looking into a rc51 and have it narrowed to 2 that i want.

Sp2!!!!!!!!!!

the swing arm on the sp-2 IS diff........not to mention the sp-2 has better fuel injection.....most people (like myself) with sp-1's will end up switching to the latter model swinger, so I say go for the sp-2, I would've had I know then about the changes.........
