I have a set of the last generation Showa A kit spring forks and just blew a fork seal. Anyone know if there is any kind of service manual on these? I bought the bike from Pro Circuit and they just tell me to bring it in.....yeah right!

I toured the muffler shop in Chino and all I got was a pen holder......made from carbon fiber with my name laser marked on it! Take the tour to at least get the world's coolest pen holder, if not to see the awesome mfg. and fabrication they can do.

I felt a slight chill leaving for work this morning and put on a sweater; then I got too warm wearing it this afternoon. Life's a beach here....I mean it's a bitch. Like, where am I supposed to put this sweater now?

^ This is the truth. It took me 2 hrs to drive 10 miles through Corona Friday afternoon. The 91/15 interchange is easily the worst spot in the world. I was headed to Chaney Ranch for an awesome day of moto so it was worth it but no matter where you live ... more »

Not a dirt bike. Very cool though.

I have a set of Pro Circuit A kit Showa forks in mint condition. Let me know if this is what your after and we can work out details.

There's no 3D rendering there. It's all flat shapes and layers. Extremely poor quality. Use the paint bucket less to fill shapes and learn shading to show depth.

It's very obviously is. Not the first time one has been fitted to a competing brand at the factory level.

I have a hard time believing this "agreement" from Tony is actually true since the document is still intact. Typically when Matthes is presented with a contract or agreement it's destroyed when he washes it in his cargo shorts.

Well aware of the tear-off/business card trick. Want to replace the seal and fresh oil though considering the $$$ I spent on these. When will I learn better??!!

Sounds like a blown tranny. Shift fork could be wasted. Splitting the cases is the only solution.

I remember Elsinore in the '04-'06 feeling like a SX track. There were some gnarly rythm sections plus some HUGE high speed doubles.

Starwest isn't bad since it was rebuilt this year. Poor track prep is more dangerous than the layout. It's a real point and shoot track, especially on a 450. Piru would be sketchy for a beginner or vet rider due to being mostly built on the side of a ... more »

This is hardly anything like using the works bike exemption rule. Those bikes were truly handmade and significant changes were happening to them each week. The Factory Edition Dungey races next year starting in Anaheim will have a frame and engine cases ... more »

Totally normal, especially if the idle is high or choke is out. Bikes need air flow to properly maintain temperature. Always makes me laugh when someone starts up their bike and lets it idle on the stand while they get their gear on. Nothing is worse ... more »

That area in San Bernadino is super sketchy and most of the hotels close to the track are dumps. I'd stay in Ontario near the mall about 20 min from the track. Much cleaner and safer area. It really is best if you don't bring guns into the state. You ... more »

AAAAGGGHHHH!!!!!! Not going to be happy if Pala closes! People consider SoCal to be the mecca of motocross but it's turning into nothing but a series of lame "Vet" tracks with mellow tabletops, a couple hundred yards before any jump and MAYBE some single-to-tabletop ... more »
