So you don’t like Eli. That’s fine but that’s not what this is about. This is about someone telling one side of a story without the other being able to defend himself. You can search the web to find unflattering interviews with Eli but he and his family ... more »

I️ just don’t understand why some people are so willing to believe what Joey said. There is another side to the story that we will likely never hear because the Tomacs are private people and wouldn’t want to wade into this BS.

Added reply in a thread Savatgy 9/13/2019 2:23 PM

That’s assuming you believe him. Again, we are only hearing Joeys side of this story. ET is not likely to jump into this stuff so I️ doubt we’ll ever hear his side. The truth is always somewhere in the middle.

At Thunder Alley he said he wrecked in Moto 1 because he was out of shape and fighting the bike. Spent 2nd. moto testing settings and making changes. The bike did not fail. In the 2nd moto at Millville he said he made a poor line choice and got stuck ... more »

True. This was once early on in the development of a brand now bike. In my opinion, happening once doesn’t warrant someone saying “all the bike failures”. He had other issues that he said in the interview were caused by wrecks from him riding over his ... more »

Did the fan pay him anything for the $1 million gift he got? Must have since Joey didn’t bitch about it interview. There’s two sides to every story so I️’d love to hear the other side one day.

Which motos?

Added reply in a thread Swap Moto-live – Savatgy 9/11/2019 11:40 AM

I know Joey hit the dirt a few times and that damaged the bike but I️ don’t recall times where the bike just gave up.

Added reply in a thread Tomac depressed about Kawabunga not racing MXON? 8/11/2019 6:51 AM

It’s depressing having the red plate and a 40 point lead with only 2 races to go.

What’s AC doing? Trying to get good at riding a new bike with almost twice the displacement What’s ET doing? Trying to win SX race series championship. I’m bummed they aren't doing De Nations but I understand it this year. No excuses next year.

Added reply in a thread No MXoN for Kawasaki 8/9/2019 6:20 AM

I think it’s pretty simple. AC needs the time to get up to speed on the 450 and ET wants the time to prep of SX.

Added reply in a thread Dylan and AC put on an absolute clinic.. 7/28/2019 4:05 PM

The new (2020) motor is supposed to be so much better. Would bolt right up to the current bike. I️ know they haven’t had time to do race R&D on it but I️ wonder if they’d go to the new motor if he was really starting to loose ground point wise.

Added reply in a thread Dylan and AC put on an absolute clinic.. 7/28/2019 8:28 AM

Good point! I️ think he’s using every bit of power that bike has to offer given his size. Really hope he adjusts to the 450 quickly because there could/should be some epic battles next year.

Added reply in a thread Dylan and AC put on an absolute clinic.. 7/28/2019 7:07 AM

Is it me our does AC look like a giant on that 250?

Added reply in a thread Washougal MX - Main Races Bench Racing 7/27/2019 3:22 PM

That’s true but everyone’s lap times dropped like that. Except Tomacs.

Has another KX450 had issues besides Savatgy’s? Don’t think so.

Added reply in a thread 2020 KX250 FIRST RIDE 7/15/2019 3:27 PM

I️ keep hearing the ‘20 has 4-5hp gain over the ‘19. Where is this figure coming from? Nothing I’ve read/watched has mentioned hp figures.

Added reply in a thread Suzuki decline 7/13/2019 6:10 AM

I️ agree with this. A great rider on a good race prepped bike of any brand is going to do well. This does not correlate with the bikes on the showroom floor or the health of the company. No doubt that Suzuki has not put the kind of money they used to ... more »

Keefer says bottom end is good. Torque is on par with KTM/Husky/Yam but with better overrev. Sounds like Kawi did their homework.
