Goofy q about rear shock...

So I just noticed lately that every picture I see of the VTR, to my memory, the rear shock is red...mine is definitely bright yellow. Was just wondering if this was a year or plant-specific thing or if I might have something funky going on with the rear shock. Mostly just curious.

Thanks guys.

All the stockers I've ever seen have the yellow spring. I believe Fox has a red spring.

there is yellow, red, and black IIRC...all came OEM

i dont know why they are different, but i believe it is the color of the bike that determines the color of the spring

im sure someone will know the correct answer

JamieDaugherty is an unknown quantity at this point
I think all US models came with yellow springs. I cannot remember ever noticing a different color. I'm pretty observant of those things, I can't tell you what color the "SuperHawk 996" sticker is on the side but the spring I would notice.

My spring is Hyperco purple. What a very unfortunate color for them to choose. I'd rather have red or navy blue...
