I'm glad people are watching and talking about Arenacross. That's good news. Though, don't pretend to be an expert after only a small sampling of the series. This isn't the first and won't be the last blatant t-bone, though atleast this one was for something ... more »

Race Tech not only provides parts and service directly to our customers, but many suspension tuners also get their products from Race Tech. The G2-R valve is built as a "tuner's valve" that offers tuners more options/variances to build the setup to their ... more »

A bit more info is needed, but this should help: When to adjust shock rebound: Slow rebound down if straight up and down kick (deflecting). Speed up rebound if the bike is side-to-side kicking (packing). Speed up for hardpack/slick conditions (for traction). ... more »

This could potentially give us a larger sample size than just our own or our close friends. Perhaps we will see a pattern that is something that can be used to find a solution. A couple of things I'd like to see on the list: Was the rider wearing a neckbrace, ... more »

Since Vital and Race Tech have something in common, both are proudly supporting the #42 of Ben LaMay I thought it'd be fun to do a little giveaway to add to the excitement of watching the Munn Racing Husqvarna rider in St. Louis. We are going to give ... more »

I would start with springs and spend some time riding it before going any further. Start with the clickers in the middle and post up some feedback on what you're feeling. For spring rates, we're quite a bit softer on the recommendation for forks vs. ... more »

I wouldn't worry too much about the motor, especially with the short start at Budds. This was a stock motor with just an FMF pipe at Elsinore on the 241 of Derek Anderson (he's on the outside of the first picture).

Email me, I'll get you setup with a great deal. I don't recall exactly what the prize was, but we'll do something close if not the same thing.

Spring rates are chosen based on the combined weight of the bike and rider to set the balance/geometry of the bike properly to provide a balanced setup that isn't 'choppered out' or 'stink bug' feeling. While springs do change the motion of the suspension, ... more »
