    A 2020 XC will, that's true. But it's not been established that it will start with a DOA battery yet.

    Yep, it seems they will run and I hope they start based on that link I posted. It seems that this is the same capacitor that's on the XC's. As long as the 2020 XC has been available, I surprised we still don't know.

    I've figured out how I can test the bump starting here on the icy road. I'll start the bike, let it warm up, disconnect the battery, and ride it up the street. Once I get moving, I'll hit the kill, and try and bump start it while I'm rolling.

    I'll try and get around to it this evening.

    Don't let the back end come around on you now with those icy roads.

    Roamer has the kickstart and was going to try with the ktm capacitor only. I wouldnt attempt bump starting on an icy road for all of us. Ha

    The bike currently has studded tires mounted to it. It'll have more traction than rubber on cement in the summer.

    That's for sure. I used to run Trelleborg Winter Friction tires when I lived up north. You could climb trees with those things.

    Thanks for doing some testing for us!

    Sounds awesome! Congrats on the new bike.

    The seals for the high pressure chamber in the air forks need break in. After some hours they will loosen up nicely. Have read others comments on the AER forks and that they don't like them, but I do. My '13 had revalved 4CS forks, so I guess anything feels better.

    AER forks are easy to service and change oil on too - the guts are "captured" by a hex shaped seat at the bottom and don't spin inside the tube when you undo the bottom bolt that faces the axle and are super simple to take out. No need for a holding tool, no drippy springs to mess with too of course. Easiest forks I have ever worked on...
