Added reply in a thread PIR tonight - who's going? 7/22/2016 6:38 AM
I think a big part of it has to do with a lot of the privateers are skipping Washougal. With the schedule going Millville, Washougal, Unadilla/Budds/Indiana many are opting to stay East or at least keep their rigs East. One rider told me it would double ... more »

Added reply in a thread Any ideas on how to start building a private track? 6/22/2016 6:56 AM
One of the best ways to create a track that flows, ride it flat and let the layout between the turns be a bit more organic and then build from there. This article should help: http://www.dirtwurx.com/track_tips.php

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?

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 »

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 »

You don't have to sell the bike, you can always get spring forks on your KX450 with a Race Tech Spring Conversion System.
