    Sachs Chronicles chapter 84

    Nothing new here but I thought I would share just in case it is helpful. Riding ability: Below average Rider size : Above average Bike: 2016 300 RR Wrenching ability: Learning As some of you know I sent my suspension to Enduro Spec this winter and had Warren go through it. After a bad spill last year that ended my riding for a while and cost a chunk of change in medical and physical therapy bills, I decided to spend a little money on my suspension. I am not 100% sure that suspension upgrades would of prevented this accident but I believe that it could of helped, for a couple reasons. First, the accident happened at the end of a 6 day trip to Moab and my arms were shot. Secondly, the accident was caused by a high speed interaction with a rock. So all that being said, safety and enjoyment with a fairly aggressive riding style is my goal. After getting my suspension back from Warren and getting it back on the bike, parallel, @GP torquing on my triples, I took it to my Beta dealer for some other work but while I was there I wanted help setting my sag. This is where the problems start. When I would sit on the bike the forks would not compress naturally. If I leaned forward or gave it a little bounce they would compress but if I just slowly lowered my weight onto the bike above the pegs the front end would stay up. Upon closer inspection, if I would bounce it while on the pegs it would sometimes stick down in the stroke. All this to say: a tremendous amount of stiction. I knew from my last suspension service that my forks were among the "bad" sachs and that my anodizing was wearing faster than it should. For example I service my forks before my Moab ride and after the ride (I estimate 50 hours) my oil was completely black with silver throughout. Warren at Enduro spec even commented that it looked like the oil wast the original oil. I had intended to address the anodizing next winter but was concerned that it was bad enough already that I couldn't wait and could risk irreparable damage by waiting. So I took the bike home pulled the forks and took some pics for your edification. BTW, This isn't sachs bashing I am ok with all this. It's a dirt bike and I know I am going to be spending some $$$ on it. Some is needlessly some is not. ­čÖé The less you know the more that falls into the needless category. So here are a few pics. FWIW I highly recommend having a 2017 Beta 4t to be a parts bike for your real bike! I took the forks off of it so I can keep my beta guy working on the jetting and electrical. You can see in the second pic, the metal in the oil. This oil has about 20 minutes of drive time on it. I am sharing this all so you can tell me what I am doing wrong. I will ignore all advise from KDM guy and 50% of advise from shrubitup.­čśü I got the uppers boxed up and sent to Plus One In Michigan for coating. Thanks @GP and @motoxgiant
