In 1980 I beat "Rocket Rex' Staten twice for the 250 pro overall at his home track Corona Raceway. Also that year I beat "Gassin" Gaylon Mosier at Saddleback. I raced in the Speedway National Championship from 1990 to 2004 best finish 7th overall.

Using the engine braking to slow down for a corner would put you into the wall. We pitch them sideways to slow down and turn.

3,4,5 minutes should be enough. It's just a toe, put your boot on, and forget it.

Actually, that is completely wrong.

Added reply in a thread Seat bounce 6/14/2020 12:11 PM

Definitely 100 percent wrong. A diving board would not work so well if it were completely rigid with no give at all. I know if I hit a jump on a bike with completely rigid suspension I will definitely still jump.

The small amount of rebound that has occurred since the rider reached the face of the jump will not affect the height or distance of the jump. below is the rider 5 feet into his jump. As you can see now he is standing and the suspension has rebounded

Go into the settings on the video posted above and set it to view on the slowest setting. You will clearly see the suspension rebounds after the bike leaves the ground. And the rider does not stand up until after he leaves the ground which is typical. ... more »

Still, the shock does not rebound until the bike has left the ground. So it cannot act like a pogo and push someone higher into the air. That is not what is happening when someone seat bounces.

Added reply in a thread Seat bounce 6/12/2020 9:13 AM

That is completely impossible for a shock to do that even without dampening. Sounds like whiskey throttle to me.

Added reply in a thread Seat bounce 6/12/2020 7:13 AM

I don't think anyone said seat bouncing doesn't work. It just doesn't work by using the shock as some sort of pogo stick as some seem to think. "It is a combination of loading the suspension with body position and throttle, as well as taking weight of ... more »

Shocks do rebound of course. But look at the photo. Eli's shock will not rebound until the tire has left the ground. So it will be impossible for the shock to act like a pogo and push the bike and/or farther. As others have said above, it's about changing ... more »

I can't believe someone like Ricky still believes seat bouncing causes the shock to work like a pogo (his words) and send the bike and rider higher and farther. The dampening in the shock would not allow for that. Here is a photo from RacerX of Tomac
