  1. Check this out http://www.mesamotocross.com/ Sunny south Florida
  2. Just go ahead and replace floating piston seal (top) and InnerCartSeal (bottom) and enjoy nearly new forks for less than $50 with parts from SDI. I did my 06 450 not long ago. I replaced the metal bushing behind ICS and o-rings on rebound adjuster, piston, cap (BV) and cart (into outer) also. Then you'll truly have good as new for a few more years.
  3. Hmmm....something learned. I thought it was just caused by to little sag, causing steep head angle.
  4. 125?!?!?!??? I'd get the sag right before buying any parts. Does the forks compress at all with rider? I'd bet not much, all the weight is in the back. 4 or 5 mm is VERY noticeable on my 06, even for a rookie like me. I didn't know a bike could be valved for both woods and mx.....probably not great at either. Disclaimer: I'm no expert Mog, what do you mean by "shake"? Not headshake I presume? Would seem the rear should feel very "loose"?
  5. I think of it in extremes..... Extreme chopper Extreme travel Exteme slow motion Choppers don't turn, gotta compress way down to get in rut. Then stay down to get out of rut. But again I'm extremely simple [emoji6] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using ThumperTalk mobile app
  6. The under/over does me in every time. .... knife or push/drift I'm just simple like that Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using ThumperTalk mobile app
  7. Sorry I haven't ever used one Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using ThumperTalk mobile app
  8. +1 to Shawn and Flyin. I have maxima racing fork 5 in front and maxima racing shock 3 in rear. Shock is charged to 173 by local suspension guy. Depending on year/hours for my twin chambers I replaced floating piston seal, ICS and bushing. In addition to outer seals, bushings and o-rings. Like brand new 06 now. Gonna try KYB fluids in same weights after current stock runs out. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using ThumperTalk mobile app
  9. Larger rear sprocket will reduce top speed BUT enable it to get there faster which will be tough to get throttle control Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using ThumperTalk mobile app
  10. Read what you wrote. It's right, push solved by slower rebound. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using ThumperTalk mobile app
  11. Rained out 27th...supposed to reschedule Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using ThumperTalk mobile app
  12. Free racing at Tampa MX Sunday. Sponsors cover entry fees, just need gate and membership Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using ThumperTalk mobile app
  13. So are you gonna tackle them, or have you shipped them already? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using ThumperTalk mobile app
  14. Look at the date on those early stack suggestions, kinda dated but the logic is sound. There are some more current at the end. But most of the knowledge is early in it. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using ThumperTalk mobile app
