The squared off rear of the helmet reminds me of a car racing lid like in F1. I like it though, looks good and no funky visor like some helmets have.

I like the overall style, just not the face guard. I like that it doesn't have that goofy visor like the Airohs and some of the other newer helmets out there.

I am in the process of sourcing a case for these currently, I just haven't been able to afford it. If you sign up for the email list in the bottom right corner of our site you will get a notice when we release these. I am hoping to get them sometime in the summer. Thank you for your support!

I have the V1 and love knowing my sag is correct or have the ability to make adjustments quickly and accurately. I just realized the issue with the sag utilizing the arc method vs to the fender last week when I could not get my 2016 KX450 to turn. I went to the fender with...more

What is the sag on the fork? It sounds like maybe the fork may be stiff and riding high in the stroke. You should have good results at 105mm to the side plate in the rear and 65mm on the forks. The SFF air forks are very tricky to get the chassis balanced by simply checking air pressure. It is very helpful to see how the bike is actually sitting by taking measurements on both ends;-)

I have the newer version this tool and I like it. I also drilled a hole in my fender and I used the arc method as described in the sag tools manual.

My only minor complaint is that I wish it had pin locator for the axle because I am always afraid when I drop my bike down...more

Awesome glad you like it! I would recommend using auto zero if you have the V2. it prevents the tool from being jarred getting the bike off the stand and since the initial cable travel is outward it settles any slack in the cable and clip so it is all around even more accurate. Also, we do offer custom axle inserts for Ti and oversize axles;-)

HI Craig,
You are right on the money. We use the arc of the axle method for all bikes except the 2016 and newer KTM and Huskys which we do measure to the mark they provide. I think they changed it to account for so many riders measuring it vertically and running the spring a little too tight. Always feel free to hit me up if you have any questions;-)

Yep, I know the tool, this is definitely a tough industry to break into. I would take it to market myself directly and build it slowly, no other company will have your vision for the product and how to present it. They will also never have your passion for the product and the benefits it presents. All I know about MP is they squash me on the teams all the time. I have had a couple team sponsorships where the tool never got promoted because MP was also a sponsor and obviously has way more money than me in the game. Factory KTM off-road buys at least 6 of these a year for the team but if I mention it on my site they make KTM call and take it down within hours. Sucks being a little fish in a big pond but you gotta start somewhere;-)

No worries Michael, you are an experienced rider and know your numbers. I just like to make sure less experienced riders and parents understand this from the start so they have a solid foundation to find their own numbers. Thanks for all the kind words, it means a lot to me that you guys use and like Slacker so much! Hope you have a great Christmas!

Actually our method of taking measurements is based directly off the manufacturers recommendations and the only exceptions are 2016 and newer KTM and Huskys where you do measure vertically to the mark they provide. We state this clearly in the video user guide. You can take a measurement anywhere but it will not give you the right number unless you measure in the right place. Say you set your sag to 105mm measuring vertically then take the measurement like it shows in your user manual- to the back of the seat bolt to account for the arc of the axle. You will see you are actually at around 95-98mm according to the manufacturers recommendation so you are running too much preload, the bike will be squirley at speed and knife in the turns. It still baffles me how so many people make this stuff up, why would you ignore the manufacturers recommendations when they are the ones that engineered the bike? Trust me, wether you use Slacker or not, measure the way the manufacturer tells you to and your world will be 100% better on the track. Your bike will be calm and do everything you ask of it guaranteed.
