After all the threads on Vital about "saving the sport", it's remarkable that we never came to the obvious solution of a global pandemic and economic disaster. Throw in some riots and racial tensions and now we've got a real hotbed for a motocross

I might be able to help you with the reverse engineering depending on the complexity of the pieces, can you post up a couple of pictures?

Are we really still going to pretend that freestyle guys are not freakishly talented and athletic? Come on people, you don’t just hop on a bike and throw the tricks they’re doing consistently and hope for the best, it’s not 1993 anymore.

I'm gonna go against the grain on this one and say no more that 100mm of sag and forks about 5mm up. I'm a little bit on the taller side at 6' and have some decent leverage on the bike, so for me I'll gladly trade some stability for a more planted front ... more »

Two things to add: 1. You better be careful what you wish for, moto ever got as big as other main stream sports it would be absolutely ruined. Regulation everywhere, even more arm chair expert riders than we have now, and more lawsuits than you could

I don’t know anyone who would recommend heat cycling their bike by letting it idle on the stand for extended periods of time, that goes against pretty much every break in theory I’ve ever heard. . .

It would depend on whether the torque specified was intended to be used with dry or lubricated threads. On head bolts like we’re talking about here I can almost guarantee that the first two torque specs are meant to be used with lubricated bolts. If ... more »
