@ Realist. As for the frame thing, its not entirely clear as the article wasn't really specific but a bit vague on that. The way it was written suggested that the T3 frames are older ones than JL & VR's. NS hints that the frames have a life too, and this suggests that the factory may get a 'new' frame/s-arm even if its pretty much the same build as the last one. So older frames replaced by the factory but calculated to still have service life left get handed down to T3. The factory wouldn't change them if there was no perceived advantage & benefit, so although its a bit vague that suggests that T3 have chassis not as good (tho the difference may not be very much). Add all the tiny changes together tho & it all adds up (which of course is why Factory Yam spend the money!). There's more than enough info to de-bunk nonsense claims by 'Lad' & others that T3 bikes are just as good as factory tho. Thats the best I can do to make sense of it, anyway.
