I wish I had given you that arm last year like we discussed but I kept forgetting it. I put it on back of the truck the first part of last week so I wouldn't leave it behind on this trip. Our next thing to come up with are air shifter components.

Definitely keeping shocks in the rear. The front forks have 1-1/2" preload on them and will likely have another 1/2" to 1" (for 2" to 2-1/2") preload before the next event. The preload spacer also shortens the fork rebound by the same amount making their extended length that much shorter as well. I've never been a big fan of the "strapped down" method of preloading.

That implies that I would have had time to implement it.  ;)  It would likely have just collected dust in my garage instead of yours!  ;D

More attention to measured improvements is scheduled for this season.  8)

Sometimes its worth dropping the tubes at the track, then moving back up. I like to run heavy fork oil to take the wheelie inducing bounce out of the forks...... which is why a lot of guys strap them down.
 And 17/54 gearing was always fun..

The preload spacer also shortens the fork rebound by the same amount making their extended length that much shorter as well. I've never been a big fan of the "strapped down" method of preloading.

Wilbur, do everything you can to NOT CUT THE SPRINGS once you put the spacers in the tubes. I know it'll be tough to get the cap on but you want the front end to be as stiff as possible which will also help limit travel. Nothing worse than a front end that extends on launch.

No cutting of the springs here, I want the preload that goes with the shorter stroke. I already have 1-1/2" spacers in place since the beginning of last season. The spacers go on the piston to shorten the piston travel (and LOA) with spring preload being a happy side effect. I have been trying decide how to label the fork caps noting the preloaded spring so I (or anyone else) don't put an eye out upon disassembly!  :o  ;)

Imagine the difference between you and I trying to push that cap down to tighten it after putting 4" of spacers on the damper rod. Lol. Eye protection and a breast plate is a must. Oh yeah, and no one else in the room or they might become the victim of a flying projectile.
