Jasikonis is the European big rig!

I used Colin Jalland at SPS Racing for my current suspension set up and I am very impressed. Having used a few other companies before, Colin has definitely got the bike feeling the best compared to others set ups. I used Colin due to his experience with ... more »

Schuster187 - Where did you get your drilled washers? Particularly the ones used for the fork guard bolts? Stunning build! What else can I say that hasn't already been said, simply awesome.

Wow, definitely the beginning of what I'm sure will turn out to be an amazing build, can't wait to see it progress! That top clamp is stunning, and the Denton Engineering clamp finishes it off perfectly. The sump and water pump guards look awesome as ... more »

All of the bolts, nuts and fittings that I removed from the bike I kept and stored in this tub. With aluminium being roughly 60% lighter than steel, and titanium being 40-50% lighter, by halving the total weight in this tub I can get a pretty good idea

Nope, it only gives you 'Italy' as an option when ordering and inputting the postage details. Very annoying! I've emailed them and they don't ship to customers outside of Italy. It has to be purchased via an R-Tech dealer.

That's crazy! I can't believe they are that old, they are in such good condition. All the spokes turn fine etc. I put a season on the front wheel last year and it hardly touched it, I think gold rims wear far better than black ones Good quality stuff ... more »

Sure did, off eBay. Quite a while ago now. Came with Dunlop MX11's, discs and you threw in an oversize adapter as well. One of the best eBay buys I've had for sure! I get endless amounts of people asking about the wheels. I've done multiple searches ... more »

Thanks lads! I appreciate the advice with the brakes. I will start with the Honda Nissin pads as this is the cheapest place to start. But I would like to get a CRF set-up after all the good reviews I've read. KooyaKooya - Yes unfortunately the RMZ got ... more »

Cheers bud! I tried desperately to get one, R-Tech don't sell direct so I tried to get one through a UK R-Tech dealer and had no luck. I don't think anyone has one in the UK yet, not that I know of anyway. I will get one in the future when they are more ... more »

I haven't, but I have kept every bolt/nut/spacer etc that I have removed to replace with titanium or aluminium. So I will weigh them all and half it to get a fairly good estimate of how much I've saved.

Thanks! They are Renthal McGrath/Short bend which is a 999 in Twinwall or 821 in Fatbar (what I'm running) They are the lowest bend Renthal make. I'm 5 10'' so not short but I love this bend. I sometimes bump them up with 5-10mm spacers under the handlebar ... more »

Appreciate the kind words! As of now, I have ridden the bike twice. Both outings have been positive and I have came away happy with the bike. So far all I have done to the suspension is go 2 stiffer on fork compression and 2 slower on rebound, mainly ... more »

Added reply in a thread What will I notice with new spring rate? 2/13/2017 12:28 AM

I'm interested in this, as I am in the same boat but the opposite way. I'm running a 5.5NM shock spring on my RMZ450 which is giving me 104mm race sag and 42mm free sag. I'm very tempted to go for a 5.4NM to bring my free sag numbers down for the same ... more »
