USD on xr600

Just got the new Dirt Rider, it has a history of the xr600 in it and apparently at one point in his career Scott Summers rode with USD's on the 600. i was always lead to believe by other posters on TT that USD's on the XR's on the factory level was a no no, unless at the time Summers was not a factory rider.:thumbsup: now if i can figure out how to use the scanner i will post up pics.

Is the that the july issue?

BITD, Scott would run White Power USD's for certain races, and the conventional forks for other races. The "no-no" deal about USD's on XR's, ie; frame cracking etc is a bunch of crap. Until I see it, I dont believe it. I have some old Dirt Rider mags from the 90's. There was a right up about it. I'll see if I can find the issue

Is the that the july issue?

yep

:thumbsup:

just reread an article on scotts crf450 that had conventional forks, he said that the USD had an advantage in the ruts, but the conv, were more compliant
