Based on what I've seen from the KTM/Husky motocross and offroad teams the WP stuff can be made to work pretty darn good. I wouldn't worry too much.

I love the way my Marz rides but the service prices are outrageous. WP stuff can work good so I don't really see a problem.

Also, would you mind posting the picture your friend sent?

Some of the top guys just get used to suspension brand and stick with it.

When David Knight rode Kawis a few years ago he ran WP suspension as well. A lot of moto guys use Showas when the OEM version came with KYBs. I wouldnt read too much into it.

Where I live in America WPs are the most costly and the most sent back to the tuner suspension ever , FC is getting close to a grand to revalve the junk ,$400 more than my last Ohlins / Marzook rebuild !

A owning 5 bikes with WP ,I'll never use the suspension again , it never was perfect , it was always " I guess it will have to do , because I don't want to send it back again " so I can ride ! NEVER ,EVER had that problem with my Gas Gas's and the Rieiger , though not a ttx , is still better than any WP I ever owned, after re-valve ! You talk to those KTM posers and they'll spend hours talking about all the " great " trinkets they bought , but, minuets on how '' great" the suspension is !
