He was honest about his thoughts. He seems a bit irked but he kinda has a valid reason to be that way. IMO... Eli should have kicked him some $. At least 10% ... at least! Seriously. Not pulling him aside and saying thanks bud... take this $ is sad.... ... more »

I build 2 CRF250's (an 05 and 08) with a IceCube 270 kit and ron hamp head. They worked very well... Carb setup was key. The new FI models with the correct remaping and must be quite good. Currently I'm on a 16 KTM 350 XCF and the 350 lugs a bit better ... more »

Pretty sure a lot of Millennium technologies moto head porting designs were done by Ron Hamp. $450 for a cnc ported head to Ron's spec's is a good deal.

If you can get it cheep enough you can put a MXTech lucky system in those for about a 1,000 dollars. It's a bolt on mod. I myself modded my 4cs with some parts from DaveJ at Smart Performance. Work fine after some tuning. But stock... they were scary! ... more »

Bingo (what is said above). Which is the issue at hand in my opinion. Now, what is a possible is there was a "hand ported" ver of the head that was done, flow benched and rider tested... they then took a mold of the modified intake and exhaust runners ... more »

#1 I m going to miss Ron Hamp. That guy was fantastic! #2 that clearly isn't a hand polished port. Intake or exhaust. #3 if honda has that in some marketing materials (that it is hand polished), I'd be pissed looking at that port that isn't hand polished. ... more »

I always thought Dennis Stapleton (Jr - not his father) did excellent bike tests. But maybe that's just me.. ) I don't think he ever bought a bike to test though. Which requires a certain amount of testicular fortitude!

There are members here that know this story - dealing with Big James etc - very well. Doubt they will share much..but the guy that talked about them not being invited back to the various company's they worked for has a valid point.

I remember a speech where Hannah stated "it all starts with self love"... He's done well there. I did hear JO like to pull his pants down in various stores etc during that time. Lovely.

Added reply in a thread WP 4CS fork, how are/were they? 8/11/2019 12:12 PM

The other option is the MXTech lucky kit. About a grand but an easy drop in replacement that can be done in a hour or two.... simple.

Added reply in a thread WP 4CS fork, how are/were they? 8/11/2019 12:10 PM

They can be fixed for a reasonable price. David J at Smart Performance has a kit for them that changes the mid valve. Do that along with 700 CC of fork fluid and the right springs for your riding type (I went to 42KG for off road and you'll be fine. ... more »

Pull it apart... something sounds goofy. Sounds like it's "topping" out with no rebound damping. I wouldn't ride it... i'd tear it down.

I don't see anything there that I particularly like.... Better designs came out of them when they were still in Morgan Hill and the brothers we doing it (John, Greg, Pete...etc) IMO.

This this just needs to stop... FIM/ WADA... It's been said before but it's time to dump them. The riders should boycott a race and simply refuse to ride.... They need to band together as the series managers are not doing squat. Sad...
