My PM's go to my work email and I'm not seeing it. Can you shoot it over via email to chris@racetech.com and I'll be sure to help you out? And for those asking, no, the KYB version is not available currently. It's in development, but our busiest season ... more »

I feel like they have tried. Durham and Bereman's deal this year and the Albertson's deal. MotoSport was crushing out the content last year with quite a few reality based series' around their riders. I think a lot of credit has to be given to Jimmy (the ... more »

Derek came back with a similar show for the following year called "Man vs Moto" with Tucker Rocky behind it if I recall. After hearing a lot of bits and pieces from multiple people from a variety of angles, I'd just say different people with different ... more »

jtiger, he's referring to an external preload adjustment. You can adjust/set preload internally with this setup. The spring is its own spring series and is available from Race Tech as well.

Smartshop Racing Development in Sweden is an RT Center. Also, J.O. Forsberg appears to be a distributor. If you can't get what you need from either of those, let me know and I will do more digging with my sales manager.

Yes, but why would you want to?

Kidding (sort of).

Surprised to see no replies; we've sold a lot of them! Even riders riding for other companies are using them in SX and some factory guys overseas. In the May 2016 issue of Transworld (Craig on the cover), they tested one with a full revalve to match ... more »

2014 CRF250 forks - yes springs, I should've clarified.

Added reply in a thread Ohlins suspension 4/13/2016 12:42 PM

He did use it for a couple of years, so probably knows it; but Mike uses production CRF250 forks/shock on his bikes. He switched after last season from the Ohlins stuff.

They do have a factory ride many times, but it is out of their parent's wallet. While your top amateur kids are getting freebies, times have changed a lot in the last 10 years from what I've seen. It seems anyone can get a 15-20% off deal, more of the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Supercross Suspension Question 4/8/2016 9:53 AM

As is said above, it depends how 'full on' it is. If it's a legitimate SX track, you can do it - I've done it - on bone stock suspension. Not knowing better I had a couple of injuries I would put a lot on the suspension not being where it needed to be ... more »

Jeff went down in practice and was hurt. In order to get paid for making the night show, you have to start the heat race. Haven't heard yet the severity of the injury, hopefully he'll be okay in a week and ready to get back on the track.

Race Tech recommends a rebuild/fresh fluids every 20-30 hours. During that process you'll get fresh fluids and your internals will receive inspection. It is likely if the suspension hasn't been serviced for some time you will also need fresh seals/bushings. ... more »
