Has anyone had there suspension tuned at J&M racing in Houston ?
I heard they were good and I talked to John and he seems pretty sharp.
Maybe some of our Texas Thumpers can shed some light on this for me.

Yes John Mitchell is the BEST in the Houston area...if you want your stuff done right he will do it! I have an XR400 that had the suspension front and rear done by him! He put new springs, race tech gold valves, teflon coated rods and this was done to the front and rear (the results are very impressive) plus he did TONS of engine work that I wont go into detail on since this is a YZ site (this was John's previous bike, who Robbie Reynard raced at Swan MX and won a title on)

I have a riding buddy named Gary Anderson who is a pro that rides a 01' KTM 520 SX and his suspension is modified by John Mitchell! This thing feels like a Cadillac on the dirt (its almost like cheating...but the only thing that was missing is the 426 hit and bark LOL) John is a great guy and rides at all the local tracks and he will even help "get it dialed in" at the track if you see him there, he has a cool box van w/lots of goodies in there also.

Is there anyway you will be able to head out to TX Motoplex tomorrow we will be riding there!

Hope this helps,

oh yeah one other thing he also does Tommy Clowers suspension (you know the Tomcat...the freestyle guy) He also turned down an offer from Race Tech to be there head suspension guy. Because he likes his business now! BBR Guy's suspension is also redone by JM Racing and it is very nice also!
