I accually took a caliber and measured from all kinds of places and the EVO EXPERT link looks and measures exactly the same as the regular elite(did the check in the 2011 models EVO vs. elite, the 2012 models are not here yet in israel..)The swing link is different.
I dont see the problem... the rp23 has the same stroke and length as the triad so no big deal. warranty will blow up if u put a 160 mm fork yehh...but rear shock that fits? no..Nah there's a few of us really interested in putting the evo rp23 on the regular stumpies and if that makes the warranty blow up or not. Interesting read.
