Didn't YT move out of SRAM suspension/drivetrain/brakes a couple of seasons ago to Fox/Shimano/Race Face because the 'Murikan giant wanted them to spec complete packages only? I recall reading in some German forums about it, it was an all-or-nothing kind of deal, and YT wanted to spec Race Face cranks for the added value they brought to their bikes. And locally, I've heard a couple of similar stories, if you want to have SRAM GX/NX/SX drivetrains in your hardtails, you'd have to pony up for a Rock Shox fork, or look for a different drivetrain supplier. They would also sell you separate drivetrain components, but the price step up when going that route is certainly noticeable when bulk buying for a whole new bike line.
