Exactly what i have been saying, it has shit to do with "mental" for a guy at that top level. Get the settings and chassi right and he will win. Get it wrong and you are not even top 5.

Can we drop the whole "it is mental and all about confidence"? Because all bikes are so good these days it does not matter how you set them up....

I'll admit I was on the hate train earlier in the season. Good that he's figured it out, but its a little late now.

i think he is showing why he has the nº 1 on his bike....
he said it himself, he was confy and fast in the off season, but you can only know how a bike works at race speed if you race...now people forget about how a "turd" they called the rmz250....i think you have to be a great racer to change the bike and get it right in just a few races, a bad set up can mess with your confidence, so i think justin has turned things around quite fast, dont forget there is no data to follow, no one else as rode the rmz250 at sxwin speed for a lot of years...
so my hat's off for justin !!!! keep up the good work....

I lack the mental confidence that I can explain this to you in a way that you would understand it and it has nothing to do with me. So yeah we can drop it.

Watch out for redheads on yellow bikes....they can be fierce competition. Could Justin be the guy who's going to bring many championships back to yellow? I hope so. That zook he's riding is fuggin' sweet...

I wonder if they cut off half the subframe and half the shock shaft. Were his bars rotated into his lap?
Those yellow bikes go really really fast with that set up.

Can't we just agree that JGR only finds the right setup after trying every single wrong one?

Unfortunately, it appears there is a history.

So you’re saying it’s mental.

I agree

These seem to be major changes Hill is making.

Previously you claimed that a “few” clicker adjustments for Tomac in the mechanics area equates to him magically cutting three seconds off his lap time.

Just stop.

Hurts when someone is right? wink

Would not call it major. Major is for me if he goes from air to spring or switch suspension brands. This is somewhere in the middle, Musquin changes for final, which i hope to get more info on was minor since he still used his base setup but then tweaked it a bit. Most likely just clickers.

3 clicks on both fork legs on WP Cone valve as i run (or also on the 52mm), or Ohlins and you might as well has revalved it or changed spring, or sag some mm. It is not like production stuff where you can go 6 clicks and you barely notice it. 1 click makes a huge difference, so to the level that you might just go 1 click on one leg to fine tune.
