Reply to Cam gears not aligning perfectly.. Ok to start motor like this? 4/26/2015 6:03 PM

Cam gears can sometimes spin on the cam itself and become improperly timed. Visually looking at your KTM if the cam gear is only bolted to the cam and not indexed then it is very possible it spun.

Reply to 2006 RM250 Shock questions 11/18/2013 5:35 PM

If you are going to dive into building the shock purchase all the correct tools along with the parts and have plenty of patience. I recommend using stock Showa parts for the rebuild or an SKF Seal head. All of which are listed for purchase on the RideJBI.com ... more »

Sean, You weighing 265lbs is going to require you to run a higher air pressure then stock. When doing so, the PSF forks tend to become less compliant. The best mod you could do to start is to get the next rate of stiffer balance springs (3.3N to be exact). ... more »

Reply to klx110/kx60 fork help 11/12/2013 7:20 PM

Patrick, Sounds like the forks you have feature subtanks. The correct oil volume for subtanks is the stock oil volume PLUS the volume of the subtank. For example: Manual says 200cc and subtank has a volume of 50cc. You would pour 250cc of oil into the ... more »

You have a leaking cartridge. The twin chamber is a sealed and pressured damper. Anytime you have seals sliding over a surface, over time the seals will wear and fail resulting is cartridge oil/pressure loss This is a very common problem among all twin ... more »

You are correct Rocksocks26. I was lucky to have a chance to test ride the MXT SFF fork conversion on both the 2013 Honda CRF450 and KX450F while visiting MX-Tech this summer. I was very impressed with the setup. I have complete product page on the MXT ... more »

How much does he weigh? Good chance we needs new springs and that the stock ones are not stiff enough for him. Springs would improve the bike overall (handling, ride height, and suspension)

Fernley, Nevada has a pretty sweet sand track that I grew up riding.

Reply to Aghhh suspension nazis please help!!!! 5/20/2013 8:42 PM

Race Tech has a spring generator on their website. Select your model year bike and relevant info. I recommend trying a few different weights also, such as 230, 235, & 240. Gear weighs approx. 10lbs more than casual cloths. The correct spring rates ... more »

Reply to Rear shock re gassing 4/26/2013 12:21 PM

If it has been long enough that you are worried about the nitrogen pressure then surely the shock would also benefit from an oil service. Nitrogen is only part of the shock's function.

Reply to i have a fork question. 4/19/2013 10:48 AM

Worn bushings also lead to fork seals leaking prematurely.

Reply to Air forks: brilliant or sales killing blunder 4/3/2013 5:46 PM

The Showa SFF Air fork has been getting a lot of press since supercross started. What many people (fans & riders) are overlooking is that fact that many riders are using the KYB PSF air fork with good results and so far no notable issues, such as ... more »

They make great products and do stellar work!

Reply to Honda Production Air Fork 3/10/2013 11:12 AM

The PSF fork is actually a little easier to rebuild. I recommend all PSF riders use the SKF Heavy Duty fork seals. Not only do they have less friction (slide smoother) than stock seals, but also feature a longer service life.
