  1. Yeah that sounds more like a bad coating job.
  2. All tubes get pitted, it's just you can't polish out the ridges of the pits on DLC or Ti Nitride. With chrome tubes you can polish out the pits giving your longevity of seals.
  3. Not sure what DLC would have to do with a leaking fork seal. I will say though from a tech side I like chrome better because the tubes can be polished.
  4. Not as much as you would think. Oil has a tendency to creep (think putting a drop on the floor and see how far it spreads). Your concern needs to be more where the oil is going. When oil gets on the rotors it gets embedded in the pads, then you have big problems. At that point you MUST replace your brake pads. Because brake pads are so porous you can not get all the oil out with cleaning. Then every time you brake and get the pads hot, oil gets pulled to the surface and affects your braking capability.
  5. We like to live on the wild side.
  6. Hey guys, sorry if you've tried to get a hold of me but I have been in and out of the shop. Just got back from PIRC doing the WERA races and was at Laguna the weekend before. Ill be in the shop for the next couple weeks then the schedule is nuts again and Ill be gone pretty much every weekend until the middle of Sept. If you try the shop and havent heard from me shoot me an email at eric@velocitycalibrations.com, as I usually check my emails throughout the day. Also I am planning on being at the Gateway event for MCRA. And just cause I like to , how's our tire wear from this weekend?
  7. I dunno man, watching to pros do what they do in person and how hard they push the limit you might be being a little hard on them.
  8. While I COMPLETELY agree the rear brake has a purpose and SHOULD be used, I just don't know if I agree with using the rear brake in THIS INSTANCE would have saved Guy from a crash.
  9. Same race... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQRZCBqVL0M
  10. I don't think you can compare what people do in MCRA and what they do at the TT, and I dont mean from a skill setting. People who ride in MCRA don't have full rides and ride the bikes they bought. When push comes to shove they ALL want to go home at the end of the weekend and go to work on Monday. Guy Martin and the rest of those guys are there to win, at any cost. So the only option is get the bike going and haul ass. Also, have you ever applied too much rear brake mid corner? It isn't pretty.

For that round we used stock linkage and triple tree and modified geometry some.
  13. Working with Hayden Gillim on the new 2017 I can tell you the difference between the 2016 and 2017 is MASSIVE! Suzuki did their homework.
