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 »

Added reply in a thread Stewart and Blose...That was CLOSE! 3/31/2014 6:55 PM

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 »

Added reply in a thread WHY IS WEY...or wey is why 3/31/2014 8:23 AM

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 »

Added reply in a thread Jace Owen - Detroit? 3/18/2014 1:04 PM

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 »

Added reply in a thread Any privateer need help at ST. Louis? 3/13/2014 1:34 PM

Get ahold of Gus from Team Gus. It's a group of over a dozen privateers most on their own for the event. I'm sure someone would love to have someone hold their bike on the line while they pack their gate.

Added reply in a thread YZ SSS Suspension ? I need some opinions. 3/12/2014 2:38 PM

Make sure it has a good quality fresh oil in it, springs for your weight, set the sag and go give it a rip. Valving can be better personalized for you, sure, but it's pretty solid stock and I'd ride it and work with clickers before just sending it out ... more »

The discount is 20% off, and yes, direct only. I do see you're in Canada, because of their costs getting parts across the border I doubt I can get my RT Center up there to do 20% off, but I'm sure I can talk him into hooking you up with 10% if you'd ... more »

Slater, Chris from Race Tech here. Let's get you setup one piece at a time. First, do you know who (weight/skill level/application) the bike was setup for previously? That will help give us an idea what is in it. Not necessary, but definitely helpful. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Stiffening CR250R Suspension 3/7/2014 8:22 AM

Springs are the first step to a well handling bike. They will get your bike balanced like it's initially designed for. It looks like we recommend quite a bit stiffer on both front and rear for the springs, so you'll definitely notice a difference. Also, ... more »

I would avoid moving the forks in the clamps. What you gain in ease to turn the bars you lose in both stability, traction, and more importantly length of the bike which will drastically help in the whoops. Keep the chain adjusted back as far as you can ... more »

Added reply in a thread AMA Arenacross questions 3/6/2014 2:02 PM

You can disregard the comments about the whoops if you are talking about the Expert class on amateur days, I am assuming you are meaning the Lites Pro class on Fri/Sat. As Moto Soul said above, get comfortable with big whoops. Here and there they have ... more »
