12 hrs. Forks are aligned properly.

Little update if anyone can provide more insight. I drained fluid and went to 340ml of fluid with stock 5.0 spring rate on forks. On big stuff if I nail the downside landing decent it feels pretty good. Firm, but not the worst. On little chop its pretty ... more »

Reply to Are neck braces fading away??? 10/25/2021 6:33 AM

When I'm at the races and see a guy wreck and get carted off in the mule on a backboard and neck collar I guess I find myself thinking "I hope he was wearing a neck brace" Not "Oh I bet he crashed from wearing a neck brace"

Whats up with the exposed red wires on the left side. I can just see all those getting ripped out in the first turn.

Couldn’t the same thing be said about absolutely any aftermarket performance part?

Everyone is different. I prefer to do them off. Others like to do them on the bike. Make sure your plastic is clean. Have a heat gun and plastic squeegee handy. If they are are decent quality, dont be afraid to pull them up and realign spots if need ... more »

Same here. 3rd bike I've run them on. One bike I ran the same set for 40 hours. Another bike (new set) for 12. Current bike (New set) has 19. No issues.

For some reason I do not see listed in the service manual the stock spring rates. I do believe though the front is .5kg and rear is 5.6kg

So am I accurate on that the Race Tech spring rate calculator is based on using their valving and not stock valving?

I believe that was the major complaint with these bikes that they were way oversprung for the average 250f kid. For me, that's fine. Just ya feels harsh. I did put on gear over lunch break with my buddy and double checked race sag. I'm at 105mm. Static ... more »

Reply to Another 2 stroke vs 4 stroke thread. 10/13/2021 11:19 AM

I've tried doing full time on both. 4 stroke was much easier for me to ride longer without getting tired. my 125 2 stroke was a lot of work. Continually shifts up and down and lots of clutch work. I rarely race anymore and ride majority for fun. Whenever ... more »

Happen to know how many cc's are in each fork leg?

Reply to Any Suspension Gurus That Can Help? 10/13/2021 10:45 AM

At 145 I'm sure you went much lighter on fork spring rate. What did you end up with for shock spring?

Reply to Any Suspension Gurus That Can Help? 10/13/2021 9:18 AM

These come with KYB AOS forks stock. I checked with Enzo and they recommended stock springs in front and one rate stiffer in rear. Just felt stiff already and couldn't hardly believe I should go stiffer still.

Reply to Any Suspension Gurus That Can Help? 10/13/2021 8:48 AM

Will do! The front seems very stiff, like rip hands off the bars on landings stiff. If things still feel odd can I do a spring rate or 2 down in the front even if it isn't what certain companies are saying should work? Or am I going to throw off the ... more »

Thanks. According to Race Tech calculator they want me two rates softer in front, stock rear. But is this based on their valving not stock?

Ya I'd have to say I am with Bruce here with on the tread lightly comment. Insurance companies are NOT going to pay for anything that they can potentially twist and put the blame on someone else.

Where did you end up getting cams from?

Reply to Ways to make bike pull longer in each gear 10/6/2021 12:43 PM

I wouldn't say I need 44 horsepower but I wouldn't mind being able to knock on the door or crack the 40 horsepower mark. Horsepower numbers for these bikes seem to be all across the board but based on what I have seen from factory claims mixed with actual ... more »
