2011 JGR /Muscle Milk YZ450F !

As I said, there are educated professionals who say it doesn't, and neither does the previous generation of aluminum framed YZ450's, for that matter.

It's interesting that so many people can be given a gizmo of some sort and immediately notice the profound effect it has (even if it has none at all), whereas when something like a revalve, which remains a foggy, abstract concept to many, is done, they don't see the difference as certainly. People believe the thing they can see more readily than that which they can't, especially if they don't entirely understand either one.

Im talking about guys with hundreds of hours of testing with just this bike. That say it needs it. Why would some of the fastest guys on earth on this bike run this gizmo then? Im confused. Again I think it depends on your speed

Gray you proabably wouldnt notice :excuseme:

There is also the element that some of those fast guys are paid to put stuff on their bike. Even if it doesn't generate any advantage, there is always the marketing aspect that "if XXX fast guy is using it, It'll make me faster too" and the masses line up to buy the product.

I've actually worked with some of the fastest guys on Earth, although not in MX, and you wouldn't believe what some of them thought they needed.

That aside, understand that I am not necessarily saying that it won't do "something", only that according to some very highly regarded suspension people, it won't do anything that can't be done some other way, such as while doing the revalve you would do anyway.

This is my 1500 post !:busted:

You"ve got a long way to go, HRC.:excuseme::busted:

I think its how fast you are lets face it 90 percent of riders could do a revalve and springs and will be fine. For the extra money im doing linkage.

I only caught a portion of this thread, but I'm convinced that for most riders, they could send their suspension to (insert suspension shop of choice) and that said shop could merely make a few changes to the clickers, charge for a revalve and the rider wouldn't know the difference. And, they would say it's the best revalve they've ever had.

Exactly why so many guys are riding four strokes, but that is another argument. :busted:

Considering I have been in here since 2002...hmmm 9 years or something like that. I should probably feel shame for only 1500 posts :busted:
