And hopefully some for previous gen soon too huh....😉😉

I think your on to something.....and the fact the goldvalves appear to have larger ports may explain that they came to the same conclusion.

What do you think about the mod that Krooztune is doing for the BFRC. Basically swapping the stock shaft and plunger out for a standard shaft with your “traditional” valve and tunable stacks on the shaft. To my understanding it uses that as well as the ... more »

I like your approach, and subscribing because I’m very curious how this turns out.

Reply to 2018 Suzuki RMZ450 8/14/2019 9:19 PM

So you intend to do this with the stock valve first? And then test with the Gold Valves?

So in theory seems like an easy fix and a very intuitive way to approach your conclusion. If it were that easy to restore the rebound to bring the damping to a more favorable action. Why is this shock still a point of contention? You would think any ... more »

Oh wow that is strange. I have a 2017 so I have what feels like an amazing shock. Having never rode an 18-up I don’t know the BFRC so I am admittedly ignorant to how good or bad it is. But it was something I was extremely curious about when it came out ... more »

Curious as to how different the kit BFRC shocks are because a lot of the Top euros use it and their tracks a brutal MX tracks. In fact Gasjer is about to win his 2nd world title on a BFRC shock. Just wonder how different those are that the top guys chose ... more »

Please keep this BFRC info coming. I’m very curious if you can get it sorted out because I’m not 100% sold that it’s just junk and needs to be swapped before you leave the dealership kinda thing.

Reply to Let's see/review those 2019 kx450s 8/12/2019 5:41 PM

In theory it should. That will affect the entire damping curve though and may be unpleasant in another spot. Have you thought about a revalve? Or possibly increasing the spring rt slightly in the front to improve holdup? I know the 5.0/5.2 combo seems ... more »

Reply to Plessinger......what’s the deal there? 8/11/2019 5:34 PM

The Yamahas look so good in the GPs this year by sheer volume of bikes on the track. Remember if AC222, Jh84, and CD25 we’re out there you would maybe see one in the top 5. Non the less they do look better on the track and I’m sure that’s due to unlimited ... more »

It was a very Roczen track.

You can tell Eli was totally not pushing and managing. He doesn’t do great in those shitty slot car tracks cause you can’t move around. 7-3 for 4 OA will definitely get the job done. Much better to get out in one piece on a track you know your not very ... more »

Reply to Enzo suspension so cal 8/9/2019 3:00 PM

Look at Factory Connection. They are an authorized WP shop so they get direct parts and support setting wise directly from WP so they essentially should have some of the best settings for WP forks out there. I'm sure ENZO is well versed in WP because ... more »

Maybe Joey will take Brayton spot at MCR......Personally I think the 2 yr deal at JGR would be the best for him. Full factory effort plus he would be THIER GUY instead of a position holder. Steve Matthes said on one of his pods that him and Kenny don’t ... more »

Yeah he’s racing crf250

Wonder if there will be any change that will make the bike less finicky to set up......
