Frankie from AC Systems, him and Jim Castillo paid their own way over. They were showing their product off to some of the GP riders and supporting the US team too.

They need their suspension techs, and electronic/engine guys...team managers are going to go too. Last thing you want is one mechanic if there is a serious problem that's beyond what he deals with (engine, electronics, suspension, etc).

What stock geared Motocross 450 passes 90?

hell, last I check I don't think they pass 80... I rode the Alta on a track, not wide open down a pit lane so I have no answer for that.

They shouldn't have to, they already spend way more out of budget for an event the rider is choosing to do. Many of these riders have in their contracts a number events they can do outside of their race schedule per year where their equiptment is provided ... more »

As far as I'm aware, Honda only spends with one core-Motocross media outlet in the past few years and that's been Racer X. They've never spent a dime with Vital since we started.... We've been included in RFPs (request for proposals) but have never gotten ... more »

I've had J-Bone tell me when they took Barcia...for staff flights, lodging, food, rental cars, extra pay for days gone...shipping two complete bikes and parts, and other necessities...they were in over $40,000 outside their normal budget. That doesn't ... more »

He didn't pay for his bike to get there, but Cole did pay for his and his families flights, hotels, rental cars etc. Osborne said he was in about $10,000 out of pocket for the trip. I've heard similar numbers from other riders that have gone.

Atalanta does, by probably 15,000-20,000 people. Off the top of my head, probably eight to ten of the SX rounds match or beat a MXdN for in-person attendance...

Ken's crash has nothing to do with the linkage or shock hanging up in anyway. I went through a full breakdown of his crash at Vegas and earlier this season, it ha more to do with soft settings, load, and miss-timing. As for my comment in Pit Bits about ... more »

He doesn't read other posts...including how many times I've explained how the top shock mount changed by over 40mms but the actual clevis/bottom point is only 2-3mms different.

He was the only Honda using KYB at MXoN and the bumper cup/retainer on the Honda/KYB version is a bit different than on the other brands. In the others, the cup and retainer clips are separate items and this version it's one piece and has area for the

As I tried to explain multiple times in the other thread regarding this, the retaining collar/cup packed with mud, split and failed... Here's Honda PR regarding the issue. I think I'm going to do a video on this, trying to gather the correct part so ... more »
