Hey guys,
We went and rode today at the ramjam indoor in lorain, ohio today. First let me say this is the first ive ridden on a track in about a year, took some time off, and i feel more comfortable of this bike than i did when i stopped racing. The motor is great and the suspension worked great over the big jumps but it sucked big time over the small stuff and the whoops. I havent played with the suspension at all yet was curious to see what you folks were doing.Im around 6' 178lbs(w/o gear) Also what are you guys using to bleed your forks i can not for the life of me get them open with a regular screwdiver:crazy: .Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you need to play with your high speed, mine is at two and a quater. First make sure you have set your sag.

After Enzo did mine they recomended 105mm on sag and bike is unreal. I had 98 before but revalve was done so like comparing apples to oranges.
