Default Results?

     

Hi Everyone!

Well, I had my first ride with the forslyk. Unfortunatly, we went to a different track then we had been going to most of the time. The verdict is still out. I want to ride at the track we had been visiting frequently. I will say this... the track we went to had a +2 minute lap time and was outdoor style sand and I seemed to fatigue less. I didn't really notice the bike being that much smoother over the chop/braking bumps... but I didn't really feel like it was that bad before... just terrible arm pump on the KTM (compared to the Honda). I should be heading to the track that we had been riding at a bunch on Thursday and can provide better feedback at that time. So far, I guess the results have been positive... less arm pump... maybe it's in my head? I'll keep you guys posted after the next ride.

Here is the report posted by Jeremy Wilkey of MX Tech.
"I've owed a report for months, and wanted to try it myself, rather than a tester giving me feedback. I rode 4 motos at Aztalan and put it on between Vet B and 125B. Four motos seperated the two classes.

My observations are that it made a noticbale improvment in fork stiction, caused by seal drag. The product does not make much of a difrence in breaking bumps (for obvious reasons)(I think he means his revalve gets rid of it) but really shines when the front wheel has a light load and your hitting little riples. The improvments in this situation give the rider a little more comfort and control. A example may be a flat turn or severe hardpack. In the case of Azzie severe hard pack with goat heads. I feel it is a very useful product. Keep up the good work, its a practical treatment for a common issue!


BR,
Jer"

Woody, just got off the phone with Ross at Enzo suspension. Very nice guy. He was trying to teach me some things about suspension and how it works. Anyways, same response. Works as advertised. I am happy these big named companies are finally responding. Also Dirt Rider told me a good review will be in the magazine between Nov and Dec issues. That should help. Swap at Transworld has a bottle as well and said he is going to test it for that mag. Soon ATM and Forslyk will be world famous
