Sorry if this is a bit "spammy", but we are proud supporters of Vital MX at Race Tech, and I often hear the question, "How can I get into the motorcycle industry?" Not always the easiest task, but getting your foot in the door and building relationships ... 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 »

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 »

If results were the only thing that mattered, you'd see very few rides and sponsorships. One of Jimmy's supporters was telling me about helping him prior to the season, maybe this will put it into perspective. Jimmy has a good attitude and a solid following. ... more »

Many you see going for more are auctioned for a good cause - fundraisers, helping fallen riders or families, etc. I know it exists everywhere, but just drives me nuts when people sell off something that was given to them as a fan for their own profit. ... more »

A bit more info will definitely help everyone help you. How much do you weigh? Are the springs stock? Have you messed with the clickers at all? There is a good chance that a revalve will help, and since I work for Race Tech and I would love to sell you ... more »

The feedback I hear is really polar opposites. Many riders absolutely love them and many riders don't care for them. How is that? Suspension is extremely personalized. Here is the common feedback, maybe it'll help with your decision. Air forks: Less ... more »

The Lake County Fair race used to do just that. 20k purse, scheduled between nationals while riders were close enough to show up. Nearly the whole AX tour would come in plus many top privateers. The local dealers would step in and support riders and ... more »

Personality is more important than skill set for the job. The guys can teach suspension, but they can't necessarily motivate someone who isn't into it. If you're eager to learn, you should apply.

Crash, of course I remember. You can always check laptimes on the servers page by track and see where guys are stacking up with their best times online by bike size. Use that as a gauge. Yes, this game is cool, it's really endless as far as pushing how ... more »

Entry level is just that, entry level. I'm not privy to the exact financial number, but generally entry level in the MC industry isn't much more than minimum wage. More or less, this is a great opportunity for someone looking to get their foot in the ... more »

It's so hard to draw a line in the sand as to who is a privateer. Weston Peick is definitely a privateer but has a great program around him - so do you count him? I know Chris Blose is 100% on his own and has been in 2 of the three mains. Once his only ... more »

Jim, I think it's Jacob Hayes, not Michael Lang getting help from TiLube. Lang is doing his own deal on Hondas I THINK. DQ's in AX are usually because of riders jumping the catapult on a red cross. Heard the track was super deep and rutty.
