Ratio rite, and I have a 20cc cup from my kids medicine container that has 5cc incriminates

I’m on my 450 and Max Vohland scrubs by me on his 65 and as I’m still trying to pick the sand out of my eyes he’s two turns away already.....the kids unreal

I actually really like the pro Honda HP5 fork oil. It stays very clean and doesn’t look bad when poured out at changes. I’ve had good luck with the Maxima racing fork fluid (blue label) as well. KYB O1 is what a lot of pro tuners use and it’s great stuff ... more »

Changing tires is the absolute worst. I’d rather frame a whole bike or clean 100 air filters before doing tires. Just one of those things no matter what pisses me off. Suspension rebuilds and bearing repacks are relaxing too me

Simple green HD.....it’s actually purple in color and it works great. Isn’t harsh like other chemicals and is safe on aluminum parts. Regular simple green works good but it will etch aluminum if left on too long that’s why I switched to the HD and it ... more »

I think he'll make it in, but not through the Heats.....

I would bet the 2021 RMZ has electric start. Its been said that they already have the cases for them they just haven't pulled the trigger yet. The 2020 RMZ250 overseas in some countries comes with a Suzuki GET WIFI tuner much like the Yamaha phone tuner. ... more »

I would think any air pressure gauge would work similar to any press on tire gauge. Its just a shrader valve no different than what is in your tires. You'll obviously want to make sure you get a good seal when you push it on as any escaping air is changing ... more »

I get that 722 has more followers, but ARay is more active on social and supports his brand. I get that social media matters in 2019 but sometimes it feels like we are playing a popularity contest vs racing dirtbikes since that crap gets seen over talent ... more »

If I was HEP I would keep ARay around way before I would 722. I'm a big fan of Adams but on pure speed and bikes in the races, the decision would be easy with ARay as he's almost a main event lock guy. I get Adams allure with the whole rap thing and ... more »

Yeah hill will ride good in these offseason races and make people talk. Then shit the bed when it matters. There’s no doubt he is one of the gifted guys on a bike out there but at their level that’s not enough anymore.

Reply to Max Anstie HEP Suzuki indoor and out 11/9/2019 6:11 PM

ARay is just as likeable and marketable as 722 IMO. Go watch some of his Vlogs on youtube. Plus his potential is much higher and he makes almost every main sometimes through the heats as well. From a suzuki standpoint ARay carries the flag much better. ... more »

Joey went 2-10-2 tonight in Paris on a new bike. A stock bike with pipe, graphics, and suspension. The bike is fine and it suits his riding style perfect. He rides very far forward on the bike in an upright position and turns 100% with the front tire. ... more »

Reply to Aftermarket Engine Mount Problems 11/4/2019 5:45 PM

I've heard nothing but praise from the Works Chassis lab mounts. If anything I would think more stress would be transferred to the frames not the engine since the mounts usually are "softer" and flex more. Even still I would think these "issues" would ... more »

Reply to Will 2014 kxf250 forks fit a 2016 rmz450? 11/2/2019 5:38 PM

Check the left fork lug and if the brake hanger is the same, if so it might work. The size of the rotors aren’t the issue it’s the mounts on the legs to the caliper

Reply to Will 2014 kxf250 forks fit a 2016 rmz450? 11/1/2019 3:29 PM

They should fit in the clamps, however the lugs will be different for the brake. If you found a set of SFF forks from an RMZ it will bolt right up (2012-2014 RMZ450). But KX and RMZ lugs differ so you would either have to run the entire front end of ... more »

That’s a complement, the 08 Honda was too this day one of the best 450s ever made.

Here is a Snipit from an article Steve Matthes wrote for MX vice. “What the heck is going on with JGR Suzuki has been one of the biggest questions in the industry. This podcast I did with Chad Reed about his 2020 plans with JGR didn't sound good nor ... more »

Man I certainly hope so. The sport and the industry needs Suzuki around.

Reply to crickets : JGR / JS17 / AMART26 10/23/2019 3:00 PM

I think there is still moving parts with Suzuki going on. From what it looks like this might be the last year we see Suzuki at the professional level in off-road racing. I dunno what that will do for production bikes in the years to come but it just ... more »
