Its great. Who wants to have artificial happy faces on every podium interview? You want him to lie? Jcoop did not conquer a second place, he lost a win and at least myself wants to have their true personalities present their weekend.

Not inconclusive. I will be you $500 it is Bogle bike, and that is a 9.

I think this might be related to how you also handle inner cartridge oil. It should be filled up with oil all the way to the drain holes with the rod in fully compressed position. Should be almost impossible to get the comp unit into the cartridge (with

Im at 300 with my 200lbs and 5.0nm. Never bottoms out harsh.

I dont get it, you looking to send AP on most likely a brand new bike, with no testing, no racing done? That will not end well.

Added reply in a thread USA Going To MXdN 7/5/2021 1:50 AM

Take out people switching bikes/Teams. Looking at what it took for AP to be good on Yamaha, the struggles Webb has on KTM and Eli same with Kawi. You cant send people that has not been through race situations on a new bike. 1. J Cooper 2. Sexton 3. ? ... more »

If you are picky, it is 816, 79, 52mm. Not identical with 822-01. I mounted a husky Pro Taper on my KTM, did not like it. Felt tall

A bit over 6". Can't ride with taller bara or seat. Lose touch with the machine.

Feels like riding a 85 if they make it smaller. Hitting feet's in the ground, knees in bars.

If they make that bike smaller than it already is, im out after 8 years of new KTM. Has to be a freaking midget to race it.

When my spring broke, it had similar hours to yours looking at the wear. So yes it happens. It is steel, and under stress it becomes weaker with time.

It is extra due to that you don't drag on excessive acid lactose for the muscles before you reach max hr. So doing max hr test of the bike, means you have to have a setup that don't drain your muscles before you reach max hr. Running up a to step hill ... more »

Every other day for training works good if you are a regular person. You can aim at getting 15-20k steps instead of the days that you don't train. Training days you should still have 10k steps. If you ride in the weekends, then you have tue+thu to train ... more »

On a wider base you can use it, but for a individual it is completely useless. Can be 30-40 beats off easily if you are high or low max heart rate person. For me it is 20 beats off and that is a complete zone. So useless for training.

Added reply in a thread Fitness-heart rate experts please chime in 5/11/2021 11:59 PM

You need to do a max heart rate test, otherwise you are completely in the dark. For MX, you need training in zone 2 and 4 mainly. Zone 3 you can completely skip. Zone 5 you get on the bike. If you are doing off season training you could do a 4x4min interval ... more »

Added reply in a thread 4.8 Rear Spring for 155lbs rider too much??? 4/30/2021 12:00 PM

Your dag tells you all you need to know, you are way off. 155=42nm 175=45nm 190-200=50nm Makes a difference if you are tall, go stiffer side. Not more than 7mm preload in my opinion. 36-40 static 102-105.

Added reply in a thread New bike tomorrow.. 350 or 450 4/29/2021 11:58 PM

It depends on your riding style. I can't ride 350, need to rev it way to much. Hate the 350s. 350 for me, is like a 2-stroke with being most beneficial if you take it to the 13k instead of 8-9k 450.
