And for what it's worth this is the reason almost everyone that really knows and can feel bike setup, including the old amish guy, would tell you the oem front end of the DS450 had the best front end of any bike. Just the rest of it was a pile! But look at where those ball joints are and you'll see why. Almost identical to the king pin in a semi like Matt was saying earlier.

I know shamrocks were narrow offset of all the wheels I've ever measured. Something like 3/8" verse a tech 3's.

I've spoke to a factory rider and he commented on how well the front ends work He wanted to keep a spindle set up for his current race bikes but didn't make it happen

Here a quick look at 3 different set-ups. DS450, TRX450 and my KFX450. The DS's angles definitely looks different.
