    See attachments:

    So it appears that some aftermarket web sites are not correct.

    And what's up with the final drive ratio? I assume it is 13-50 not 14-50?

    The only change from the 2020 models is the addition of fork preload adjusters and BNG. Depending on which manual you downloaded, it can cover a number of different models.

    BNG? Bold new graphics? You mean the uglier than sin gray, and the puke graphics.
    Yes I ordered the bike, but I must say that I dislike the look! 2020's looked much better IMO.

    It's funny how much you hate your new bike and you haven't even seen it yet. Lol I've seen the 2021's and they look great.

    Rocky Mountain has the wrong front sprocket size for my 250. They have 12, it came with 13 just like my 350s.

    I don't think I will hate the bike, just not a fan of the gray side panels, I liked the all orange, or the orange/white look a lot better.
    I do have some nerves thinking about all of the possible problems that I have been reading about; this is a lot of money to me, so I do worry.

    I'm not a fan of the gray but plastic is easy to change and I don't get too hung up on looks, you can't see it while your riding.
    I know a guy with a 300 TPI that races enduros, he seems to like it. Pretty sure he is a member here. @KHyole

    I agree it's not a deal breaker, and I did put my deposit down on the bike and hoping it comes in very soon.

    I can tell you, even though it's apples to oranges because I ride thumpers, EFI is awesome. I'm 56 and have a lifetime of dealing with carbs on all things, EFI rocks. Caveat - you need a good map.
