Which holeshot device?

I just put a Kermaxx on mine. I haven't been able to use it yet though,seems easy enough to engage.

Hammerhead on mine as well. Had some issues with the pin pushing out on a jump, contacted the company and took about 4 months to finally get a replacement. I'll pass on Hammerhead products from now on.

None of the tracks around here have dirt starts. I love to see the posers engage their "hole shot" devices on the concrete pads.

Thanks for the replies guys. We have one track with a concrete start here but all others are dirt. Question: isn't the point of the device to lower the front to keep from wheeling (at least try to anyway)? What difference would it make on a concrete start?

Never heard of the Kermaxx... Is it new?

concrete has very little traction. you want you weight shifted toward the middle/back during launch and then forward once onto the dirt. In dirt starts you want to get the weight as far forward as possible. Watch a supercross start or national mx start. guys are sitting really far forward. hole shot devices help in dirt and hurt on concrete.

Maybe Kermaxx is a Canadian product, I had two choices from my dealership, the Kermaxx for $70 or a Pro Circuit device for $140. Easy choice. You can find it if you google it I'm sure.
