    Little Guidance or opinion on stacks

    Being I am not a huge suspension tuner, I and do minor tweeks, I was amazed how stiff the other bike was. Our bike with stock stacks performed fantastic for a pro level national MX rider during a day of testing. We only tried to address the sharp object hits we get offroad and my riders like the bike to stay up more. anyone here do work on marzoochi 50mm forks ?

    Opps, didn't finish, I made those small changes and my rider was impressed and felt it . the real stiff stuff has me wondering why so stiff and is this common, I am no suspension guy, just dabble and willing to learn a bit.

    Tm Reliablity

    we had an o3 for a while that we sold, we also did some dealing in TM's when the gorgia guy tried it, Parts were in Georgia for a while and Barker in Canada helped us many times, so no real issues.

    Tm Reliablity

    Not sure on pricing, from what I have seen ktm 250x go for locally the TM is within 800-1000, You get way more than that in quality add ons with the TM. Again the TM was out of the OX race ready, a slight jetting change and even suspension was on the Mark, Every New KTM we ever bought needed 1K pluss to hit the first race, same goes for any asian bike we had... If you get a chance to actually ride one, then go for it..

    Honda Clutches work awesome in the 2 smoke 250/300... ditch the stock TM springs as they are a weak link as we use the clutch way more than the euro riders LOL.. The 300MX is an incredible machine, TM Works rear shock is a dream...

    Tm Reliablity

    AS T4 mentions the 2012 TM's are TRUE Race bikes, set up suspension springs as needed for your weight, use good fuel and oils, then it is just point and twist... they out handle any KTM, they can hang and challenge any asian bike.. They are built from the best of he best, parts and design.. The TM was the cheapest and easiest race bike we have ever set up and raced, they need so little, they look so great...

    You can tweek the idle, use good fuel. there are updates from TM. Gearing may help.. If you get stuck work with Pete or contact me directly.. I am across the states but will gladly go over basics.

    Button advantage in HS

    We leave it agreesive for almost all starts, IF level and grass or loomy loose stuff we do a 3RD gear start.. No problem at all.. If tack or a slight incline we do a 2nd gear start. then up shif fast depending on what lies ahead.. This is where we cheat the switch if we need to rev it out for a 100 feet or so/ or shift to 3rd, BAng the switch to Soft, it adds a few hundred more RPM to the motor, then if it is moderate turn, we switch bag for the turn and we ride,, We also leave bike in agreesive mode for tight woods, turn to turn sprints, gear it right first, then when we hit the log staights we hit soft mode to carry RPM and more speed, especially in 5th or 6th, this helps and detontaion also..
