My comments were a short version of the written explanation I gave from my view, which was on the forum. As I explained in that original topic; the pegs, glide plate and linkage placement had nothing to do with the crash. Rebound damping can only control so much and if the compression damping isn't adequate, it places too much force for the rebound to handle. As Kenny mentioned, he liked his stuff soft and that's something I mentioned in that original topic...as the WP and KYB guys I had spoken too prior that have worked with him all mentioned his Supercross settings were soft for his overall speed. Chatting with Ken here, he acknowledges that he ran his stuff a bit too soft and due to their latest development he's now running a stiffer setting without giving up the initial comfort and feel he looks for.

Your signature says "positive attitude"...clearly you've lost that... And the majority of your posts make your likes and dislikes obvious. Likes: Eli Tomac... Strongly Dislikes: Ken Roczen.

Pre-warning, I'm a jack of all trades for my job but a master of none...so I apologize for the video ahead of time but I think it's still a decent piece to watch. I got to chat with Kenny about his crash, breaking down what happened and if it compares ... more »

We were able to snag about ten minutes of Ken Roczen's time to ask him about his injury and what his return to riding was like. He chats about the soreness, the excitement, and even what he's had to adapt to on the bike. He also talks about the causes of his wreck and some things he's changed on the bike to counteract this in the future. Listen in for all the details.

They both looked like professional Supercross racers.

Sorry, I didn't get a stop watch out and was too busy filming Ken to visually time their sections...

It was the plan all along. Ken was to move to Shift as he's a bit "edgier" and could push the relaunch of the brand and styling. At the time they already had Dungey and wanted to move Reed over to the main brand as I think things were getting a bit stale ... more »

He's running a track now, I think it's Kern County Raceway Park.

With just weeks until Anaheim 1 and the 2018 Supercross season, Ken Roczen has made his way to the Honda SX Test Track in Corona, California for the HRC team launch. We got some time to film Ken Roczen, so enjoy seeing K-Roc RAW!

He's barely ridden the bike at all due to injury, all suspension is new at this point for him. In this case he will have support from KYB at the races and I don't know if support from WP at the races was an option at this point...I don't think he's ridden ... more »

Jason Baker was leasing it from Grondahl, then leasing spots out to riders. They did this because Roczen nor the other riders were interested in taking on the full price of the place. Instead Jason does it as he's the guy that builds and maintain's the ... more »

I followed up two weeks ago with the comment that Kenny has decided on Showa and Seely is sticking with KYB. The MCR team is going KYB but Honda will flip the bill for Brayton's Showa program. I'm going to guess that Ryo from Showa is their guy, while ... more »

I literally found out about the KYB thing last night...the components are being purchased through Technical Touch as KYB doesn't have lugs or a clevis for the Husky/KTM. It's using a Kawasaki spec fork for tubing and length and an older KXF shock body. ... more »
