That’s a good possibility as well, all I know is the combo of rider and or bike did not look too hot

Reply to Dungeys bike looked like poo 7/10/2022 5:10 AM

I could see that as well but I was thinking more so the rear keeping him way up in the air more so then forks being too soft but it could very well be the forks.

Reply to Dungeys bike looked like poo 7/10/2022 5:09 AM

That makes complete sense because his bike looked way better then dungeys did in my eyes. I’ve been messing with a traxx shock on my girls sons bike and it seems like the tougher the track the more active that shock is as if it’s too much rebound in ... more »

The fact of the matter is nobody wants to work anymore and everyone wants to get rich with minimal effort, if I was a young mechanic that liked moto I’d give it a shot, what’s the worst that could happen? It doesn’t workout and you go back to your normal ... more »

If you had a body shop and were looking for a painter for a few days during the weeks and then ride for the rest I’d have to rent my house out and give it a shot! Sounds like a pretty neat opportunity to hit some tracks one would most likely not go to. ... more »

Reply to new ktm suspension 7/6/2022 1:05 PM

I have both front and rear Kyb akit forks and shock for the previous generation bikes and yes the front end will fit but not the rear shock. Personally I would get Kyb inserts and use stock uppers and lowers rather then the Kyb tubes/xtrig triples, they ... more »

Reply to Stiffer spring or stiffer valving? 4/13/2022 4:51 PM

Had a 44 and 46.. Installed .465.. spring rate now in both forks is .46 I guess it was .45 avg between the two prior, we shall see if this does the trick if not a little re-valve is in order.

Reply to Stiffer spring or stiffer valving? 4/12/2022 6:38 PM

I can’t remember the rates in there off the top of my head but I know we used two different spring rates initially. 150 lbs plus gear
