    enjoying the outdoors. rock crawling, camping, and drinking beer. i will build another bike when business allows me. harleys and dirt bikes are my two wheeled interests.

    the good guys in the suspension industry; Ride Concepts, I've used in several makes/models and skill levels. the product always delivers. DGS suspension, specializing in off road and woods setups, Russ is an exceptional tuner. Pro Tune suspension, ktm specialist, Corey is also one of the best. KAS Suspension in England; Karl is killing it over the pond.

    Been revisiting the oc conversion on those, and have chosen it as way to get better performance. If you want to spend the $, then kyb swap.

    Race Tech Gold valves

    You should find a metric hardware source for washers, collars, etc. It makes for clean work, which imo is as important as a good tune. The fuji locknuts are very good as well. You can find most of this online with some digging.

    .44 KYB fork spring

    What length do you need.
  4. This is proof why "butt dyno" and real world dyno are two different animals. Woods setups are way more subjective imo. I have fast riders that are on opposite ends of the stiffness spectrum. Hoop shims are very good, and can be effective in most disciplines. I've used them in just about every shock, but ive found a sweet spot in mx, rather than woods/enduro. But, i have one scheme in forks thats working well.

    Shrink the port size on those g2r pistons! I've found some good stuff playing around with them.
  6. Spending the money on springs (if necessary) and a good tune ( by someone who knows WTF), far outweighs any benefits coatings alone offer.
  7. They can work, obviously many use them. They are not however, the "magic bullet" in suspension performance. If damage occurs, they must be recoated to maintain functionality. They also wear over time, and can look worse for wear than stock tubes in time

    Suspension work for Alta

    1k to make aer work is ridiculous. Snake oil shit there.

    Suspension work for Alta

    Maybe alta will join gas gas and tm. Maybe KTM and Huskey will too. They are running KYB. Who knows? But that would be a step in positive direction, and decrease the need for owners to spend a bunch of money to get proper performance out of the suspension.

    Suspension work for Alta

    Ya, the aer is wicked good when tuned well.

    2019 KX450 Help!

    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.
