Added reply in a thread So about this Gajser kid 6/21/2016 11:50 AM

Gariboldi was always going to backed by HRC that year. That information was being used to try and sign a quality rider as Gariboldi had a terrible reputation up to then.

Added reply in a thread 16 KTM 350 SXF, getting more juice 6/21/2016 11:31 AM

I think vets like the idea of the 350, but then miss the bottom end pull of a 450. I know that's how I felt. I'm now running full FMF, vortex and recently made the jump to a 52 rear(from a 51). The 52 livens up the bottom end incredibly. Much more torquey ... more »

I have used WP Cone KXF forks available. Very rare. I'm in UK £1300 plus shipping No one I speak to in the UK is 'enjoying' the KXF air forks.

Must be worth $30-40. Try an advert on ebay. Not highly desirable IMO Would look good on 83-84 husqvarnas

So is Wheeler an apologist and in the back pocket of Luongo too? Well as he often co commentates with Malin on the youthstream produced show I think you can assume that is the case.

What's the best price for the Ohlins cartridge kit for 4CS? Surely that's got the be a cost effective option to fix the forks? The kit can always be sold when you change bikes?

Added reply in a thread 18 vs 19 12/31/2015 11:06 AM

I love the old 18 wheels, used to hear that 19 rims had been fitted for extra tyre options. But plenty out there now for the 18's. Am running Michelin MS3 for MX on an 18 rim which is exactly the same tyre I run on my modern bike although obviously that ... more »

Believe they can be modded to fit. I know a guy running his 15 in a 16 model Husky.

He had another operation last week to remove more metal work and do some internal cleaning up.

"My 15's deflected off of everything and bottomed something awful" Sounds exactly how I would describe my front forks. Ive purchased used Ohlins now overwise the bike would of stayed parked. I have 30 year old suspension that works better than the 4CS ... more »

Mel Pocock has aged out of MX2.

Added reply in a thread 2016 MXGP teams and riders...? 11/20/2015 9:20 PM

Maybe he is getting a wage now where before he probably wasn't? Sometimes tough decisions have to be made. AS to DRT and Monster isn't he (Steve Dixon) the official Kawasaki MX2 team now? Maybe Monster are just following Kawasaki's lead? He is certainly ... more »

Added reply in a thread David Pingree on air forks 11/15/2015 12:17 AM

My experience was with a new 13 CRF450. Forks were simply terrible no matter what settings we tried they never worked. Then replaced all the valving and still no good. We also found that some 13 air forks worked better than others out of the crate but ... more »

Added reply in a thread WP 4cs forks 8/22/2015 6:32 AM

I have a 15 350 Husky. Played and played with the settings but no joy at all. The thing was plain scary. I had mine revalved in Holland for minimal outlay and bang they work. A few clicks at the track and I'm so much happier. Also Matt at EvoTech says ... more »

Added reply in a thread Roczen's Dad on RCH 8/19/2015 6:22 PM

The other teams could already be well aware of 'the issues' at RCH. Normally they are. So I cannot see it restricting KR's options.
