They ditched the 19 frame and went back to the 18 frame ,then they ditched the 18 frame and went back to the 19 lol 

People show how little they know about racing lol 

I don't take it personally , I'm just trying to show how testing works 

You take just about EVERYTHING personally

You guys really can not read on the other side of the pond can you?

Webb had success in Orlando 1 and he wanted to run the same setup in Orlando 2. (using the spring shock)

That's all... it does not mean he does not want to use the air shock in next races.

I doubt he’ll go back to using it this year

In his mind he won with a spring and that’s what works. If he starts losing to another orange/white/red KTM with air he might consider changing. Just like Sleeter said it’s all mind games

KTM riders work for KTM.  KTM's number 1 goal is to sell bikes.  An air shock is probably lighter, when/if it becomes better than a spring shock, then KTM and their riders will go with it. 

If I run a inner tube in my tires, and the feel is better than a Moose, I will run the inner tube until the feel of the Moose improves...

If we're calling replacing the air shock with a spring shock as a mere changing of setup, then Barcia simply "switched setups" between last year and this year.

As far as the air shock thing, I thought the point was that they are developing it and planning on putting it into production, which will likely give them an edge in the future. Whether Webb uses it or not, they are still developing it. And KTM is taking the lead right now as far as features on their bikes. And before anyone accuses me of fanboying, mine is for sale, so I don't want to hear it lol. I'm just saying, that I think their team is great and their bike is obviously working very well. And the same could be said about Honda. But Hondas production bike was basically just trying to catch up to what KTM already had.

I'll bet I can find some past comments from you about the 19 frame being too stiff.  What's the wager?

The 19 frame was based on the factory bike and everyone hated that

Everyone hated the 19 frame => just routine changing of setup.

Barcia simply changed to a new setup this year vs last year.  It's routine according to mog.

Racing is simply a drag race from corner to corner is one of the dumbest things to say about supercross. 

You just don't get it, do you?  I presume you're a spectator. 

I made the mistake of thinking that SX riders would actually participate in these discussions.

I'm enjoying the fact that there's 2 separate threads with 2 separate posters this week where this question has been posed.
