By "start" button, I was meaning the starting mode button...to change the mapping for the starts.

The release pressure would have to be based off whatever PSI the fork reaches during the end of the travel. Say the fork is set at 33 PSI you wouldn’t blow off at 35 PSI...as the fork moves through the stroke it increases the PSI due to the decreasing volume. For example, the fork might be reaching something along the lines of 600 PSI at the end of the stroke... (I’ve never received a clear answer on that exact PSI per the starting PSI for a PSF1).

Duals, it was just the angle of the photo.

As we've discussed privately my comment above is based upon personal experience dealing with the OEM testing staffs from each manufacturer along with engineers from KYB, Showa, and WP...the majority of these groups measure in a more vertical sense. For instance, in our Shootouts each OEM test technician that is on hand measures in this way. As I tried to make very clear above I'm not saying one is right versus wrong, I'm making this clear that there's a difference in the end number so the user understands this when they measure. It's ultimately up to them/their suspension guy on what they run and their interpretation of what setup works for them.

He's not receiving help from Husqvarna, he went out and purchased a few (five or six I think?) of the current FC 450s.

Oler is focused on the 450 while Rob is working on the 250 stuff.

I believe he had another crash after MEC but I could be wrong.

The 250 seats are cut at the back for more airflow into the airbox/intake.

Added a comment about video Ken Roczen's Road: The Crash, Injury, Recovery, and Adapting... 12/15/2017 10:08 AM

My comments were a short version of the written explanation I gave from my view, which was on the forum. As I explained in that original topic; the pegs, glide plate and linkage placement had nothing to do with the crash. Rebound damping can only control so much and if the compression damping isn't adequate, it places too much force for the rebound to handle. As Kenny mentioned, he liked his stuff soft and that's something I mentioned in that original topic...as the WP and KYB guys I had spoken too prior that have worked with him all mentioned his Supercross settings were soft for his overall speed. Chatting with Ken here, he acknowledges that he ran his stuff a bit too soft and due to their latest development he's now running a stiffer setting without giving up the initial comfort and feel he looks for.

He's on a 250 for 2018...but will move up to a 450 in '19.

PC's stuff is quite long for the most part...their Pro 6 units that need to pass the max RPM test usually are the size of the FMF units. Akrapovic on the other hand is usually 30% less in length with their design.

Sound testing has its drawbacks from an aesthetic stand point...

That head would've been illegal. It's just simple time and development. The team had nine years on the old engine platform and only a bit over two months on the new one...they're making gains ever day.

It's been tested...but it looks like they're going to opt for two riders on Showa and three on KYB for 2018.

Your feedback came across as a straight dig and that's how I took it. I apologize if my response comes off as harsh, no it's not the best piece I've placed on the site but I have no problems publishing it. As I stated originally, Casey is the guy behind US R&D but he's not a face of the brand. He's paid to make the bikes better and not to be outstanding on camera. I wanted to give the end viewer a different voice to hear from then our usual media contact at KTM and in person I find Casey quite knowledgable/interesting to bounce bike feedback off of.

Not everyone has camera time and as stated in the video, Casey is the head of R&D for KTM North America. No, he's not much of a media personality and hasn't really been in front of the camera for these types of situations, but he's the guy I wanted to chat with as he's the one that makes the R&D decisions in the US relating to this bike. Is it fluid? No, but it's free content and I apologize that this free bit of content has ruined your day.
