Added reply in a thread If the 2 hondas had issues serious enough 7/5/2022 9:26 AM

Not lugging, but scenarios where the engine is experiencing extremely high torque loads in the mid-RPM range with 100% throttle being applied. High torque loads generate more heat than free-revving at the top of the RPM range. Red Bud is one of those ... more »

You watch a F1 or MotoGP race and get spoiled with how good and technologically advanced a racing production CAN BE when done correctly. Then we get hit this absolute steaming pile of a production that costs $99 per year. Garbage. But priorities though....they ... more »

Motocross is strong in Illinois, both in terms of rider counts & track availability. If it wasn't for the shitty weather 6 months out of the year, corrupt State government, and death by taxation, it would be a decent place to live for any moto rider ... more »

Wish I could help you out, but I don't use Android devices. Are you trying to break into LitPros untapped base since they only focus on iOS?

Added reply in a thread KTM broke in half. 4/18/2022 6:14 PM

Could write a short novel on this subject and all the related comments. All I will say is that sometimes in the pro pits, you see way to many T-Handles and not enough torque wrenches. In addition, there’s a lack of mistake proofing and process controls ... more »

Added a comment about feature GP Bits: 2022 MXGP of Trentino 4/18/2022 2:13 PM

The Solo 2 data logger on Haarup's bike is from AiM Sports and it captures GPS + engine CAN channels through the bike's ECU.

Neither LitPro or Crossbox have products capable of this level of data logging as this configuration from Aim Sports.

We'll never get a straight answer on this until a 3rd party company (not a helmet manufacturer) conducts a full lab test of each model and then releases the full data set. It's a shame because we all know each helmet manufacturer is already doing this, ... more »

XGPS160 runs at 10hz which means 10 GPS data points per second. I believe most sport watches with GPS are only running 1hz. To put that difference into perspective, if you are going 30mph down a straight, the XGPS is going to capture a data point every ... more »
