Isn’t unsprung everything below the spring?

Added reply in a thread Coop on spring= 3 wins 2/22/2021 8:43 AM

I’m not sure the shock spring counts as unsprung weight.

No he was injured at an enduro (gaping wound apparently) a couple weeks ago and there is now some infection due to that. It looked like this thing was filmed at 10 frames per second. The recorded version was unwatchable for me on youtube.

The last three races he has had the speed too.

Your dad may be thinking you will outgrow an 85 in a year and he doesn’t want to drop the cash on a bike that he will need to replace in a year with a full size bike. Shred on the bike you have. It will make you a better rider because you are the suspension. ... more »

It’s definitely dominating the privateer 450 ranks. The lcq is practically all green. It looks like ktm dominates the bottom of the 250 East lcq.

The full wrap ones might be ok but I have a set of twisted flag mounts (and the screws) that say these aren’t good enough. I also had a clutch lever punch through the flag in a race and it took a while to pull it out. The ktm perch mounted are the best ... more »

There are zip ties that keep the handguard from folding back. Those break first.

Yamaha and Kawasaki are supposed to be the best for square edge bumps. Austrian bikes are supposed to be ok too but a little more work to get them that way depending on what fork is on them.

Added reply in a thread GasGas vs KTM 2/20/2021 4:55 AM

They use braketek in the enduro models (EC) but the cross country (EX) use Brembo.

Added reply in a thread Purchased a GasGas MC250 Today - Any Tips? 2/17/2021 7:58 AM

Are KTM and GasGas plastic the same fit? I thought they were a little different.

Added reply in a thread AER48 harsh off-road 2/14/2021 11:19 AM

Back the compression clicker all the way out find out what air pressure wp recommended for the fx350 and start with that. Mx shim stack is probably going to be harsh for off-road.

I assume 100% has a patent. You know where they really rock? In hare scrambles that are super dusty but still have creeks and muddy spots.

Try the 350 XCF. You can pump up the forks for the moto track although being you probably never ran air forks you might hate them. If your trails are more sandy and not too rooty/rocky the factory MX suspension with clickers backed off might be ok for a fast rider. From everything I have read a 450 (especially the Honda) is too much for east coast trails. The Kawasaki and KTM 450s have smoother power delivery and might be more manageable on trails. If you need it to be red, GasGas gives you a mostly KTM in red.

The other option is to buy the mx bike and get an extra set of suspension valved for off-road. It is easier to hide forks and a shock than a whole bike.

Ok just saw your post about off-road. You can race every weekend in Indiana from May-October if you run off-road. Here are the series I know about: IXCR - best organization probably my least favorite courses. First race is at Badlands end of Feb. It ... more »

Found a few more. Nickota motocross park in Bedford, KY Parsons MX in Odon, IN Andre's in Shelbyville, IN (very small jumps and tight turns) Hoosier Hilltoppers in Paris Crossing, IN. This is pretty close to you but is a club, and I don't think they ... more »

LTMX and Motoland are deep sand tracks and they have practice only. I have not hit LTMX yet but Motoland is awesome if you like sand. They even have free bike wash stations next to the track. High Fly MX is in Scottsburg so not very far from you. It ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tear Off Gaskets 2/9/2021 8:41 PM

I think the goal is to keep water, mud, and dust out from behind the stack and you would use a 2nd gasket between stacks. At least I assume the gasket is thin enough for that. It should work just like the perimeter sealed laminates that 100% sells for ... more »

Added reply in a thread Jett messing with Colt 2/7/2021 7:19 PM

Jett’s bike was definitely down on power compared to the star bikes. He was struggling to go triple-triple-triple on the long jump section and Colt/Craig could easily do it.

Are there any 6d dealers in Indiana?
