toast, i can't wait! hey, how many times i had said that....haha.


jon must have a new hd head cam. nice vid.

tom, it's time to lower the berg set up for mike or you can have my stock springs. i am looking in taking off 3/4 inch from my 350's legs and put heavier springs.

folks, correct me if this is incorrect. a spacer is added internally to shorten the fork and shocks. the shorter travel will compress the spring(s) further, thus more preload. the compressed stock spring will be stiffer and may provide the correct sags. if no worky, a slightly stiffer spring may be used.

still confused? me too...

Joel, take it to George, you do not need spacers. ESP did wonders for Verns bike. I'd say it's a good inch or more lower, plus a low seat will help as well. Properly set up suspension is money well spent.

George re-worked my 525 and its an inch shorter and handles much better. Rebuilt the 640 suspension as well. Thats where to spend your $$
