Added a comment about video Ken Roczen's Road: The Crash, Injury, Recovery, and Adapting... 12/15/2017 10:08 AM
Original

My comments were a short version of the written explanation I gave from my view, which was on the forum. As I explained in that original topic; the pegs, glide plate and linkage placement had nothing to do with the crash. Rebound damping can only control so much and if the compression damping isn't adequate, it places too much force for the rebound to handle. As Kenny mentioned, he liked his stuff soft and that's something I mentioned in that original topic...as the WP and KYB guys I had spoken too prior that have worked with him all mentioned his Supercross settings were soft for his overall speed. Chatting with Ken here, he acknowledges that he ran his stuff a bit too soft and due to their latest development he's now running a stiffer setting without giving up the initial comfort and feel he looks for.

He's on a 250 for 2018...but will move up to a 450 in '19.

PC's stuff is quite long for the most part...their Pro 6 units that need to pass the max RPM test usually are the size of the FMF units. Akrapovic on the other hand is usually 30% less in length with their design.

Sound testing has its drawbacks from an aesthetic stand point...

That head would've been illegal. It's just simple time and development. The team had nine years on the old engine platform and only a bit over two months on the new one...they're making gains ever day.

Your feedback came across as a straight dig and that's how I took it. I apologize if my response comes off as harsh, no it's not the best piece I've placed on the site but I have no problems publishing it. As I stated originally, Casey is the guy behind US R&D but he's not a face of the brand. He's paid to make the bikes better and not to be outstanding on camera. I wanted to give the end viewer a different voice to hear from then our usual media contact at KTM and in person I find Casey quite knowledgable/interesting to bounce bike feedback off of.

Not everyone has camera time and as stated in the video, Casey is the head of R&D for KTM North America. No, he's not much of a media personality and hasn't really been in front of the camera for these types of situations, but he's the guy I wanted to chat with as he's the one that makes the R&D decisions in the US relating to this bike. Is it fluid? No, but it's free content and I apologize that this free bit of content has ruined your day.

In this case, Weston was doing two lap sprints, so switching up the sections wouldn't be a part of the program. But at those test tracks, yes, they do switch sections up and commit to doing different lines on some days. Wether they do it mentally or just place a bale to block out certain lines for that day.

Cone markers for acceleration points, budman lays them down in key places. Section timing is handled by the LITPro on his head...

For MXdN they ship two complete bikes, parts, and a size-able crew. It's likely they left one bike over there for this race, so Cole and his mechanic could just fly back over with SX suspension, updated ECU and any other parts to change. I've been told by another team the riders can negotiate money from the promoters to ship bikes or the riders have to pay part of the cost to the team in hopes of making enough money at the race to offset the cost plus pocket cash. As far as I'm aware, Seely was the only US rider on a full tilt bike from the US. Wilson's bike was from ICE ONE racing and I think Marvin's was supplied by KTM's MXGP squad as well.

Can Monster quit supporting the sport, pumping in millions every year? *sarcasm alert*

This is a deal they tried to make happen before and couldn't get done. But, their deal with JGR is over now...
