I don't doubt that a vortex does cure the issues, but not really looking to spend another $900 before trying the reflash.

Anyone in Canada able to get the reflash done? Did your dealer know anything about it?

So you're saying it does make a difference in the production cost of a dirt bike? The more you make the less cost per unit and all that??

Appreciate the in-depth response. Looks like we have a similar background but looking at it from different perspectives. Looks like we are saying the same thing? “I captured initial factory tool up for a production run in "factory overhead costs." Increased ... more »

You should do some reading on economies of scale in a manufacturing environment. It is absolutely true in this scenario each bike that comes off the line is cheaper for the manufacturer then the one before it. -edit, for a given model run..... You are ... more »

Ha, that line of questioning could apply to the yellow bikes as well. Even at $8500 msrp, it is still $500 cheaper then a 21 RMZ at msrp.

Despite where the 21 finished in all the shootouts, every one of them commented it is better then the 17-20’s.

They would be able to sell the S for cheaper most likely because the R&D and tooling costs would have been amortized over the planned 4 year cycle of the 17-20 bikes.

I agree, the funny part in my mind is Barcia is the guy that had the ability to deal with it properly. Could have torpedoed him in the next corner which was the best corner on the track to do so. The rule book is pretty clear but is rarely referred to ... more »

The rule book seems to disagree with your assertion....... In saying that, it’s still on Barcia for running into a rider from behind. 4.16 Flags and Lights It is the rider’s responsibility to be aware of their surroundings at all times while on track. ... more »
