Really interesting Tomac changed a few settings on suspension at WW and went from 10-13 guy and a few seconds off, to suddenly being at the top. Setup does not mean that much...

Yes, but if you dont brake hard you neither need to have stiff forks. Braking hard puts load on the forks making them dive.

Added reply in a thread The "Americans ride a lot of Supercross" excuse 9/1/2017 1:40 AM

Europe Pro riders do 60% or more riding sand. Someone like Herlings has completely different bike setup for that (even different forks). That setup and riding technique is equally different than supercross. So, either riding difference conditions and ... more »

The issue is the same on every level. Practice track shape, and race shape are two completely different worlds. They talked about this so many times, you can not find tracks in US that are beaten down to the level it reaches for a race. Neither do you ... more »

So why does anyone ever go into and adjust clickers unless it helps with going faster? And number of times Dungey had these issues 2015 where he lost 2sec a lap to second motor because they went in the wrong direction. Spare me it is all in his head ... more »

That is exactly how it works, you missed Ironman? Tomac was adjusting x3 in panic and shaved of 2.3 sec. I guess he did that for fun. 2-3 sec per lap, easilly on setup regardless if it is 1-2mm of offset, or changing clickers. AMA Pro licens says shit, ... more »

Sorry, but this just proof you have not ridden at the top. A few clicks can be the difference of seconds per lap. There is no way in hell, Tomac would have gotten down 1.7 from 4 without changing something on the bike allowing him to go faster. If you ... more »

Started new thread Longer linkage (pullrod only), KTM SXF 2017 8/28/2017 11:55 AM

Has anyone ran a longer linkage, 1-2mm? I just got it this weekend but did not have time to test it. Did you run stiffer spring when just running the longer pullrod, and not completely new linkage like PC? Less SAG?

99% he ran pirelli mx32 has he always does. Same version you can buy. And yes, suspension wise there is a reason why riders like Musquin, Roczen and Herlings run smooth suspension. There is no way you can be super aggressive and successful at GP hardpacked ... more »

X20 rear is for really soft surface only, almost sand like or actual sand. Front is more versatile.

Added reply in a thread MX Sports Pro Racing Apologizes for Releasing Confirmation of Herlings' Participation at Ironman National - Now it's unclear if he's racing 8/23/2017 1:30 PM

The thing is that #84 can of course ride a production bike with stock suspension, and be top 10. But every 0.5sec counts if he is to have a chance to win Saturday. Put that in perspective, why race it and get shit if you feel you are not comfortable ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2016+ KTM shock spring length 8/23/2017 6:53 AM

260 seems just to add a bit to much length, plus you will have trouble getting the spring on the bike without removing swingarm. 247 is 45 and 48 springs, think my 50nm was 255 and that was just about i could get it through without removing swingarm. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tomac's Issue in Moto 1 8/22/2017 1:50 AM

There is risk with everything, but i agree. Today with 50mm vision on Prospect and others it becomes less of an issue. Might be google companies that spec tear-off also. A pure roll-off business would not be as lucrative. If you get water or dirt under ... more »

Anyone else has trouble with video/audio being choppy? Not the usual poor bandwidth but like video coding issues. Have it both on my mobile and my tablet, one connected via broadband and one via 4G mobile.

you should compare carrier long sand skills with supercross skills. Same as dutch and belgium produce top sand riders, france (europe) produce better supercross riders together with US.
