    DIY Video Tutorials

    Hi everyone - We've noticed so many people asking for information regarding sag - suspension "clickers" etc. It's all in the Basic Suspension Set-up video sold on Thumpertalk. This video was filmed by a professional film maker in Burbank Ca. He also did the editing. The voiceover was done by a professional (he worked for Disney) the entire video was scripted. It shows what happens if the rebound is too slow - too fast etc. What it doesn't show is how to change fluids or valve. The riders were mostly pro riders showing what happens when adjustments are not done correctly. Also what to do to correct a problem. I know it may be too "basic" for some, however that was the objective - basic set-up. We appreciate all purchases and hope our video was helpful. Fineline Suspension

    Mx store in Moab

    None that I am aware, however a large Honda dealer off I-15 freeway, in St. George, Utah, very close to Moab. If you are flying into Vegas, it should be on the way. Good luck!

    Why to bleed fork air valves

    What do you mean??? Hopefully you are "backing out" the screw, then "tightening" it back down. Sometimes you don't get air out (at least that you can hear) - other times you hear a "hissing" noise.

    Why to bleed fork air valves

    Bleed air from forks before you ride....think of it the same way a bag of chips gets when you change altitude or temperature (heat). The bag of chips blows up like a balloon - even tho its a sealed unit. Same thing is happening inside your forks - which can cause a harsh ride - Be careful to release from air-bleed screw and not the screw in the center. The center screw is rebound on most forks - on a crf450 the center screw is compression.

    What does it mean by "slow down rebound"?

    TT has a "basic suspension video" in their shop, explains everything on a BASIC level - could be a big help to ya!

    Save your fork seals

    I really hate to throw a fly into the ointment regarding Kawasaki seals working on the KTM's, but the fact is the Kawasaki seals are 58.10mm o.d. (outside diameter), while the WP are 57.73mm. Almost a 1/2 mm bigger. Yep, you can get them in,(a tight fit) but then try to take them out later! Also, the Kawasaki seals have more"sticksion" that means they don't move as freely...they are "sticky" which = a harsh type ride.
  8. Sorry if this post looks like "spam" we certainly never ment it to be,and this is our lst post, but we must answer some statements regarding the Vortip. First, we are the designers of the Vortip. White Brothers actually got permission to sell it under the White Brothers name from us..Why? Quantity and distribution. That's why we can sell it for less. About the Vortip:it is stainless steel...which means it never rusts (not the tubes, the down turn.)and it never needs packing as do many other types of exhaust tips. As to the performance, we tested it extensively - all people that tested (magazine editors as well) agreed compared to an "unplugged" exhaust it was close to the same. (A minimal amount lost on the bottom). Cost is the difference between spending well less than $100 for a tip and in many cases $300+for a pipe. The Vortip uses the existing internal screen which is a spark arrestor directly from the factory. Sound was our main reason for developement.(increased power was easily accomplished by removing the restrictive exhaust plug.) Riding a bike after hours that's loud is hard on the ears, and causes neighbors and friends to complain. This was determined long before the new laws came into effect! Jim Patterson is 100% correct about the design (different tubes at different lengths, and diameters.) This was an idea used in Car mufflers. Reason: Sound "bounces" off these tubes - redirecting it (thereby decreasing it). The "downturn" also redirects sound toward the ground instead of straight out. You could make an exhaust that did nothing more than downturn (LOADS OF FLOW) - however, it would just direct the sound to the ground. And any material that was not stainless would rust in time. Many companies simply powder coat...we felt the stainless looked the best. We are currently working on this same principal for numerous bikes - an inexpensive quiet way to increase power. Keeping in mind the Key Word is inexpensive. We are aware that a pipe may increase power over this small exhaust tip, but the price is a major factor. Thanks to everyone, we really appreciate all comments, and would be happy to answer any questions. Fineline Motosports www.finelinesuspension.com
