I saw the Yamaha programs. It isn’t the dealer’s fault, necessarily. Yamaha pulled the rebates back in a big way in July. Supply and demand...

Yup. https://powersportsbusiness.com/top-stories/2020/06/30/you-wont-believe-mays-average-dealership-retail-growth/ The growth would be even more dramatic if you pulled out the Harley numbers, which are still dropping like a stone despite the industry growth.

Is Answer still owned by Tucker Rocky? If so, I think things have been a bit unstable over there for quite a while now.

I’m telling you. I’ve stood in the Yamaha factory in Hamamatsu and watched a little Japanese lady kick start bikes, put the rear wheel on a dyno wheel, hold the throttle wide open while shifting up through the gears. Unless things have changed, this ... more »

I was having problems with the bars twisting every time I laid the bike down in a corner. Then I bought the Ride Engineering bar clamp and it completely solved the problem.

Assuming we even have an AMA Outdoor championship, which Factory Honda rider finishes higher in the points? Logically, it should be Kenny, but Chase has youth and health on his side.

Glad to hear it. Mine is coming via Amazon this week. I had to take my bars off to go two clicks stiffer this weekend 🤦🏼‍♂️

TM Designworks for sure. It isn’t just a Kawasaki problem. My last bike was a Honda and I had to go to a Slide and Guide kit with chain rollers on that bike as well.

Does anyone know of a screwdriver that works to adjust fork compression damping with 1 1/8th bars when the bar clamps are in the forward holes? It is a PITA to have to remove the bars to adjust compression.

How many times you figure that salesman got stood up by someone who was “on their way down”. He even tried to call you back (likely to give you the chance to leave a deposit over the phone) and you didn’t take the call. Cash in hand wins in sales, and ... more »

I didn’t start until I was 18. I have raced fairly consistently ever since (I’m 46 now). In the meantime, I started a family. That just turned my race weekends into family camping trips. Suit yourself, but I’ve never found anything that replaces the ... more »

I have .53 fork springs in mine. Overall, I’m very happy with the suspension, but I would like more bottoming resistance. Is there any reason I can’t add 5ml of fork oil through the bleed screw with a syringe so I don’t need to take my forks apart to ... more »

Poor Kenny. His mind might still want it, but his body just can’t keep up anymore. He’s been making piles of cash for many years now. Probably time to call it a career.
