It has 5.0s in the front, it just has a really low oil volume and some different coatings.

All the OEMs used to hand out bikes all year but since the economy crashed, they've really cut back on bike loans due to a smaller loan pool system. In our case, we only have a couple of our Shootout bikes left after our test days are complete. Some ... more »

I've ridden Monster Mountain, Budds Creek for the Husqvarna intro (which was an absolute pile, Glen Helen is prepped better most of the time), Muddy Creek, High Point, Millville, Baker's Factory, Pax Tracks (Florida), Lake Whitney before it closed (Texas), ... more »

That'd be acceptable, but no one will.

Added reply in a thread Will Alta's be allowed at Straight Rythem? 9/24/2018 4:40 PM

Alta is only allowed in the 250 class and Red Bull's goal with the event this year is to make it fun. The Alta was a big hit last year and the titling of some PRs may have miss-represented it. The Alta has been allowed in the whole time, it was more ... more »

I think I'm going to tag along for part of it. Kris just brought it up while we recorded that so I gotta see if the logistics work out or not.

The linkage on the new bike is fairly linear, I could see some tuners using a higher rear spring to keep it from bottoming. I just went to a more progressive link and crank arm, it's an improvement in my opinion on stock valving. Going to have a shock ... more »

I think it's a 5.4 in the rear.

Why's it BS? They literally showed the Alta in their first promo.

It's the same dry lake bed track its always been and always will be.

I meant more the look of the area. Glen Helen used to have green hills; now it's just fences, porta potties and blown out areas.

It would be helpful to watch the video if you're trying to take shots at the forum members, Lake Elsinore, and DC... Although, Glen Helen is so blown out anymore I could see it being mistaken for Lake Elsinore.

They shot the walk around shots in front of Lake Elsinore, the actual lake, not the track. The riding footage is from Glen Helen.

Media hasn't ridden it yet.

Added reply in a thread 250 Shootout waiting on Suzuki? 9/24/2018 3:37 PM

We're waiting on the Honda and Suzuki 250. We should have the Honda in about three weeks, with the Suzuki around three weeks after that.

I've had two riders fall through... And I've been talking to the staff of the event, Alta has been invited.

Alta is allowed at Straight Rhythm.

T-Fant is filming Jason on it today at Pala. At least, I think Jason is the one riding it, ha.

It was pretty decent when I went for Keefer's deal. It's a total 450 track right now though, the jumps aren't do or die but you gotta haul the mail for a couple of them.

Added reply in a thread MXA Shootout 9/24/2018 11:52 AM

In my Shootout and along with Keefer's, the sensitivity of the Honda's balance has been noted but for our riders and their setups, the issue wasn't as hard to solve but it did weigh in on the bike's final position. And as you stated at the beginning, ... more »
