I've found rowing to be the best. Cycling doesn't work your upper body out at all.

Added reply in a thread What is the final word on AER spring conversion kits? 6/4/2020 11:01 AM

Yeah, like i said, the key is in the float on the compression stack. There's very little damping at slow fork velocities due to the float/gap between the face shim and the midvalve piston, allowing the fork to move easier initially, which is your traction ... more »

I've been really liking the air in my AER48 since i went with RaceTech Gold Valves. Seems that a compression stack with float is critical on this fork to allow it to feel super plush like a coil spring. My current setup runs 170psi in the air chamber ... more »

It can be pretty sandy on some days. Maybe not like florida beach sand tracks, but it can be dry and loamy in the hot summer months. This particular day was cloudy so the dirt held moisture pretty well.

This was yesterday. Temps were in the 70s and overcast skies, so moisture retained in the dirt pretty well. Days like this at cahuilla are the best. I thought the track prep was ok. Rough tracks are good practice.

You really need to try one. It'll change your mind. It's so nice not having to wear -33db earplugs when riding because the exhaust of the dirtbike is outputting 100+ db. I want to be able to hear in 20-30 years without hearing aids. I've had guys like ... more »

Dont limit yourself to the MXR. Also try to find an EXR. You can then buy a set of AER48 forks, motocross shock, and a 19" rear wheel, and swap them over, and have the same bike. And street legal to boot!

You must be one of those diehard 2 stroke guys. I get it. I have a 125. Its fun in its own right. But I'll be honest, my gas bikes get ridden wayyyyyyyy less now that i have 2 Altas. I'm meticulous with bike maintenance and not having to change oil often, ... more »

Haha, I had a few guys come up to me last night saying I scared the crap out of them passing them. It's why I yell as I come flying up in riders, otherwise it freaks them out.

My MXR has 2022 miles/110 hours now. Still performs as well as the day I bought it 2 years ago!

Added reply in a thread Michelin Starcross 5 Soft Tire Pressure Recommendations 5/26/2020 10:59 AM

It entirely depends on the rider weight, the type of riding, how fast the rider is, the bike, etc. Best thing to do is to test a bunch of pressures and find which pressure not only "feels" right, but also has the proper amount of "rim clean" on the rim ... more »

Added reply in a thread What’s a fair price for a set of AER48’s? 5/26/2020 8:24 AM

I might be interested in them for my Alta dual sport. The going rate for a set in good shape is about $700, but i've seen them go for as low as $450.

Added reply in a thread Bar positioning 5/25/2020 8:26 PM

always tilted back about 10 degrees or so from inline with the forks. On bars with a crossbar, i use a socket on an extension on the rearmost bar clap bolts and let the top crossbar roll back until it hits the socket extension.
