Hi, I recall there were some posts not too long ago, about Kit suspension tests.
Michael Lindsay planned to do a suspension shootout, which would compare ohlins kits to WP CV's/Trax to Showa/KYB Kit suspension setups. Did it ever happen and I just missed it? Still a work in progress, or did this idea just die?

450 Shootout came up quicker than I thought for this year, so I changed focus to get that handled. That'll be done this week then back to suspension...

Exactly! If Michael picks anything else it's probably because he is on their payroll! smile

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

September 15th 2027, when they finally realize the backwards engine just isn't going to work. Just like with the 5 valve head, Yamaha is very reluctant to give up on one of their innovations, as misguided as it may be.

It may be different from the other manufactures, but I love my 14 yz450. Had it four years now and haven't had an issue. Bike handles great and the motor is unreal. Then again, I'm 6'2 and 190lbs.
