    What does it matter?

    All the hardware on my bike came with it.  I reused the stock bolts for both levers.  If you have a 2020 401, it might be like -373-Arrow said, they changed hardware to offset other changes. Or the previous owner swapped them to try and clean up the vertical slop.

    Yeah I think the previous owner changed them but the vertical slope is still there. I need to look into getting the original pieces for the levers

    Slop is still going to be there no matter what with OEM Husky

    I’d suggest going aftermarket if you care that much.

    2019 model also has the quickshify- peole keep stating the 2020 has a QS.

     

    seems the only real differente is the adjustable forks. i prefer the lok of the original white 1.

    The 2019 definitely does not have a quick shifter unless you add one.

    There is no sensor is obvious to see.

    2019 had an option to add QS.  I did not.  I enjoy operating the clutch.

    Installed a 16 tooth front sprocket today.  With all the performance mods done on the bike I still have plenty of acceleration, but now I can jam on the highway without pegging the rev limiter.  Since I commute on the highway for a long distance, this makes the bike even more fun than it already was!

    How necessary do you feel the radiator shield is? I was looking to get one myself. Super slick bike btw, love the look and the mods.

    Radiator shield isn’t necessary for riding around town, but could save your radiator on highways where the cars in front of you kick up the occasional rock.

    You can always swap a new radiator for under $100 if needed, but I don’t want to get stranded on a long ride or my commute to work because a rock blasted a hole in my radiator.

    Personally, I like the look of the shield and painted it a bronze to match the rims.

    +1 on the guard.

    High speed fluid loss = overheated engine + slippery rubber.

    Also, it is advised, when you get coolant on your cloths, it is required to remove them instantly to prevent potential long term damage to your microorganisms.
