This thread made me think of this...

In all seriousness though, there is no way something of that magnitude could really be planned and pulled off before James' suspension is lifted. It'll be a challenging year for James to do anything ... more »

Chris,

What Race Tech products would you recommend for an off-road tuned TC250? I'm a bit of a budget but what products would be the best bang for my buck?

Obviously the Gold Valve kit would be a good start, but what about Rebound Gold Valve Kit for the forks and the Rebound Separator Valve for the shock?

Any advice thanks!

Well, I just pretty much realized why I'm the marketing guy and don't touch suspension. I was completely off base and apologize. Glad I called and got correct info from tech. On your bike, if you have a 100mm long spring, it will have 0 preload installed. ... more »

We (Race Tech) recommend 4mm of preload on the spring. Preload will make a noticeable change in performance of your suspension.

Race Tech seals are identical to OEM seals and VitalMX members save 20% when mentioning VitalMX when ordering. OEM/Race Tech or SKF seals are the only thing I'd allow on my bike.

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 »

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 »

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.
