Check the install of your forks. If they are parallel or the tubes are pinched it will make them super harsh and sticky. It'll affect the shock performance too. Here is a step by step on proper installation. You'd be amazed how many times this is the ... more »

Paw Paw, Do you happen to know what make/model/year this was on? We'd like to address it and make sure it gets corrected. Also, everything we sell is 100% guaranteed, so that means if we recommended the wrong spring rate, we'd exchange it without question. ... more »

It is my opinion that those who go in person will be treated to an amazing atmosphere and show, but I don't think it really matters. Who is more important, the 10, 20, or even 70,000 people who may pack a site to see it live or the hundreds of thousands ... more »

The forks will definitely have an effect on the shock and vice-versa. Spring rates are really important because they are going to set the overall balance. The valving, you can probably get away with leaving one end stock, but often times you get the ... more »

You aren't the first and won't be the last. I tell a lot of my friends and a lot of our support riders to save the money to invest in tires, chains, and sprockets and spend more time riding the bike. The stock suspension components properly setup with ... more »

I believe Ames will be the third rider in that truck. Zero clue on Nichols, which is surprising with his results at Loretta's as well as AX at the end of last season.

Nah, Stephane was gone from Rainbow quite awhile before I got there. He went down the street to work for 2XL games who made Baja and the Supercross and Ricky Carmichael games for mobile. He does make great tracks, has a great background in the sport, ... more »

My guess would be "Skippy Mcdermott" is close with one of those championship winning riders who is eligible and not selected judging by his first 2 posts both being in this topic. My guess, someone who was close to as good had someone who backs them ... more »

Just trying to install my gold valve into the KTM 85sx, there are a bunch of shims missing for the stacks and I noticed that there is an * which indicates that these shims are not available in the standard kit!!!! What the hell?
Added reply in a thread Are fork springs interchangeable? 4/28/2014 7:36 AM

If the part numbers are different, it's a different fitment. For various reasons, we try not to have new part numbers unless needed. Not saying the other spring won't fit at all, but there was a reason our R&D department felt it needed a different ... more »

Added reply in a thread What makes an A kit suspension? 4/17/2014 7:59 PM

Inner chrome tubes, outter fork tubes, shock body, and shock shaft. Coatings are all about reducing friction which in turn provides a smoother, more consistent feel with better traction. We've done quite a bit of R&D and found some great stuff out ... more »

Added reply in a thread What makes an A kit suspension? 4/17/2014 5:23 PM

Coatings, larger diameter, more adjustment, and some strengthened internal parts and a valving setting. We're finding more and more riders who are preferring the feel of their smaller diameter "stock" forks vs. the A Kit alternative, though there are ... more »

Riding the last round before the Chase and the Chase to the Championship with a broken wrist would be proof otherwise. As would doing his own privateer program from last year's series. Or the fact that all hundred and nothing pounds of him isn't scared ... more »

Nope, after he had bike issues and had to borrow Friese's practice bike at A3, a dealership named Testa Motorsports stepped up and helped him out huge getting him setup with a 2014 to finish the season on. His 2014 is on the road with the Factory Metal ... more »

Sounds like McDade is working on finalizing some funding to hit New Jersey as well. He's been fighting through a broken wrist, but is hoping it'll be 100% by then as well. Sure would be nice if the series ended a bit earlier to allow these guys to get ... more »

Should the whole vet class at a local race sell their bikes too? There is a lot of risk involved and they're all most likely just going to get slower too. (And I'd compare a lot of vets on a normal MX track to Wey on a SX track if you want to compare ... more »

Nothing to do with this. Friese is still using RT and RT is still supporting the team. JGR is tight with the team as well as they are just down the road from eachother, and AJ and Jace are able to ride at the JGR track and test with JGR as their riders, ... more »
