Pekka's sister got married with the Man, but I don't think Pekka raced 500 then. Think he raced 125 till '85, then couple of years 250.

MxLarge is known in Europe for the support of Luongo, noboby takes him serieus. I think it would be smart for US mx fans to do the same.. All the riders in europe would love to race the US series, mostly because of the poor money in GP.

Added reply in a thread Factory Husqvarna subframe 2/4/2015 1:36 PM

They use (or don't.. ) the 1 bolt all season. MY thoughts are they do it for more flex or maybe lowered the subframe, but it is intentional for sure, otherwise it would be only 1 race or heat. Lowered subframe is used a lot with the pro's. But if thats ... more »

Factory Suzuki and KTM are running Akrapovic skidplates. In US and europe. Not for sale only factory. US Suzuki is the only team running the Yoshi pipe, Suzuki Europe and Jpn are running the Akra pipe..

Mmm, think Herlings still likes to race in Unadilla. For sure he will race some Dutch and Belgium nationals or maybe Italian in beginnning of year, always has. I will see him race at least 10 times next year I reckon.. no problem. But a US national is ... more »

Rocsen could race at his home race in Teutschenthal (DE) and Herlings or some other euro could race Unadilla just before the Brazil GP (same timezone). interresting.

Added reply in a thread RVs GP bike? 10/2/2014 8:50 AM

Almost no rules, works bikes. Engine wil be almost the same, maybe little lighter, PC exhaust (factory). Frame different and hand welded. Suspension KYB factory but could be a switch to Showa as in US (seems that suspension was a contract issue with ... more »

Work on them, then you learn. Brembo brakes work fine but don't last as Nissins. KTM bolt are crap, not Japan standard. If you are used to Honda don't expect KTM to be the same (form honda to Suzuki is also a step down if you work on them). But KTM's ... more »

Don't expect Honda quality from KTM, brakes, bodywork, bolts etc. need a lot more attention. But the bikes are fine, just different.

Added reply in a thread Factory Honda to KYB? 8/10/2014 8:23 AM

JGR is running the same stuff Rinaldi (JH89) is running in MXGP, Gajser (Honda HRC) stuff seems different. Thanks for the info.

Added reply in a thread Factory Honda to KYB? 8/10/2014 6:37 AM

I heard from a KYB technician in Europe that that the design is totaly different and that the range of the clickers is much much wider. no further details where given.. But the Gajser bike look realy good on the track (99% rider probably..)

Added reply in a thread Factory Honda to KYB? 8/10/2014 5:12 AM

need a pic, where they running Kit KYB like JGR or the real factory KYB that Gajser is running in the GP's
