    Xplor fork solutions

    1500.00 isn't out of line considering i just helped someone who paid a big name company 1200.00, and sent them back twice, before I got them.

    2018 kx450 suspension changes

    I would definitely keep the 18 forks and get it valved. The shocks didn't change much. The 17 got changes to chassis if i recall. My fast 160lb rider is running 140m and my 185lb pro running 160m. I'd have to see where they are running rest of chambers. Thats just off memory. The feedback is positive, and once they settled on pressures, they have kept them.

    2018 kx450 suspension changes

    Yes they run less pressure in 18 from 16. The pressure spring is changed, as is the valving. I like both, but the 17 and 18 are improved over 15/16. I would tune the new cartridge to work with the new lower recommended air pressures.

    Training Seminars

    I did the race tech seminar in 07. It was an excellent course. At the time there may have been 15 students max. I wished we had that as part of the MMI curriculum years prior. I had done some schools after, but the information from rt was valuable, and payed dividends over the long term. SPRINGS!!!! That's one of my favorite parts of the school. Most of us that had gone through schools enjoyed the information, as we're all gearheads to begin with.

    Race tech nitrogen bolt

    Ive serviced their bladders, no problem. I think mx tech, and moto pro make them as well. K tech, and csr probably also.

    KYB SSS vs Showa (a kit style) 49mm

    KYB all day. Just my opinion, but I've always preferred KYB to everything else.

    fork spring tester

    Here's a fork spring guide i built for mine. I will eventually build another frame, and get an appropriate load cell; most likely 0-125lb range.

    fork spring tester

    Cooper engineering has load cells which may be in the range to accurately test spings. I saw some on ebay years ago. You could fab a frame .

    Race tech nitrogen bolt

    I've used them before with the sdi filling tool. The needles work fine with the bolt. Never had an issue, and ive probably used a handful of them over the years. This measured .028"
  11. That's an awesome idea. Good that business is truckin for you guys down under. I wish there was a technical touch style showa hard parts dealer in the states. I'm sure you'll get a good response from racing teams with suspension budgets.

    Call fc in new hampshire. Thats the main office.
  14. The word pro is as misused in the tuning world, as much as the rider world lol.

    hi - low range ,oil

    Sounds like valving and fork springs too stiff for your terrain.
