Compression - Vital MX Pit Bits: Thunder Valley - Motocross Pictures - Vital MX

If you watch many of the teams assemble their bikes (we noticed both Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki and Monster Energy Kawasaki doing it this weekend, you'll see them loosely assemble the motor mounts, subframe, and linkage. Then they compress the rear suspension with a tie strap, and torque all the bolts in sequence. That way everything is in a pre-compressed state. If they do it without the compression setup, it can change the sag by up to six millimeters.
