WP Suspension

XACT PRO 7548 SPRING FORK – $3499.00
XACT PRO 8950 SHOCK ABSORBER – $2249.00

In 2021, Husqvarna introduced a shorter WP fork and shock to provide riders with a lower center of gravity and ultimately a better handling ride. The change seemed to be a positive one for the manufacture, as Husqvarna now carries that advancement into the new year with their 2022 models. Though, one of our favorite modifications to equip any Austrian bike with is the WP Cone Valve fork and XACT Pro shock. Now that the shorter-length suspension geometry had become one of our favorite aspects of the Husqvarna’s, we were bummed when we lost that feature after installing the standard WP spring-conversion. However, WP and Husqvarna have now released a shorter-length spring fork and shock to transfer that benefit over to the more superior set of suspension. We had one of Husqvarna’s techs install a set on Dommer’s 2021 Husqvarna FC450 before grabbing his thoughts on the suspension.

Prior to the test, Dommer had Steve Piattoni from Shock Therapy stiffen up the suspension and get it adjusted to Dommer’s liking. Below is a list of what exactly Steve did to the suspension and how much it cost.
