When I had it in to ACE, they did a quick once over of some possible causes, but they didn't seem to be interested in actually digging in, finding the cause, and getting to a solution. I've been on the phone w/ Plush in SF just asking them if they were familiar w/ the T800 front bounce issue since it seems to be a pretty common problem (they weren't). I was wondering if anyone knew of a place that does good suspension trouble shooting. Thanks a million.
Go back to Ace Motorsports. Ask Chris about race-tech fork springs.
They just came onto the market. Had mine done last month,problem solved.
Tj.

This season we plan to show MotoGP racing every Sunday on which they are racing MotoGP, so if you can't make the Quatar round this Sunday, maybe we'll see you later in the year ...

Admission is free, and there is a cash fountain at which a motorcyclist will be able to find any beverage he or she may wish to quaff ... KLR prices ...

18th Street at Folsom ... BAARCers always welcome ...

Go Nicky! Go Rossi!

Yes, yes - BNRP thanks for the detailed walk through and all the help tonight. Sorry I held you up too - I owe you dinner and drinks big time this Saturday after our ride. I'll throw in lunch too for the crash bar help and oil jet cleaning seminar. Four sets of hands makes a huge difference on the install...

Hi missadventure and LeDakaR!,

We got the MotoGP season off with Ace Cafe Rob, watching Rossi and the Yamaha claw their way to the front and finish on the podium ... Fun!

Rob says he's still looking for a location to re-open the ACE, so we'll see ... He's been showing MotoGP at our clubhouse for a couple of seasons now ...

Here's a pic of Renaud (LeDakaR!) and his gal from this Sunday:


Anyway, we're doing a Sheetiron tune-up ride at Hollister and camping out Saturday night at Hollister Hills on April 27-28 .... some pics from last year's SI tune-up ride at Hollister:

The crew!



BAARCers welcome!

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

I may be camping at HH that weekend. Bright blue Tacoma with a Tahoe 18' Toyhauler. Look for the red and white Husky TE310.

If I know where you'll be in advance, I may join your circle of wagons, space permitting.
