Maybe the resident YSS specialist and chime in. Though if the shocks are rebuildable, the internal adjustments can be undertaken.

Topari , except for road racing and observed trails, we always use progressive springs . For the DT and up to 90 kg rider I fit 10-15 N springs . Progressive springs are a bit more difficult to produce , so not everybody can offer them . There are a few riders (not many ) that do  insist on them . I do have som 10 , 12 , 15 and 16 N linear springs that  I use for testing new model bikes ( as base to construct the right progressive spring later )

Tech Talk / Hi -Low speed suspension for VMX
« on: April 16, 2019, 04:11:09 PM »
Just finished the high low speed 3D housings for the long travel shocks . You can sway the reservoir 360 degrees , that will make it fit almost anything . The can also be extended 10 or 20 if needed .At the same time I enlarged the reservoir by 20% volume to house a bigger bladder.https://store.suspensionshop.org/maico/mx/1980-1989/shfrtwhp-ma81-mc490-81-82-mc490-hyperpro-shock-adjustable-fixed-reservoir-1-pair-black.html

General Discussion / Re: All electric soon ?

KTM make an electric version of the Freeride.

I would love to try one. It has the same frame as my 350 so it will handle the same, it weighs the same and has the same rated horsepower and I have a good suspension solution.

This will be a bike that has no clutch and cannot be stalled. It has maximum torque from idle and it's quiet so I can ride it nearly anywhere.

The downsides at present are range, recharge time or if I'm super keen the cost of a spare battery.

Brent I have a electric Mountain Bike , its great fun , Does 50 km/top speed  and has a range of about 25 km if you don't pedal at all . If a manufacturer would make something a bit more race bikish (stronger forks , bigger battery , better shock , slightly stronger frame ) , I think it would be a top seller .  The question then , what will happen to the classics ? I understand Icons like Ossa,Puch  or a original works bike will hold their value forever , But what will happen to the bikes that have been modified  and blinged up ? If it has wheels , people will always race it , but I think they will choose the most convenient options ....just pondering .....

The way everything is shifting so quick lately ( gay marriage ,gun ownership , immigration policies , veganism etc . ) How will the programmed  community  judge people that are burning fossil fuel just for fun ? Will  those events stop be still OK ? Will people still look at those bikes as being desirable, because they burn fuel ? I knew electric  and fuel cell vehicles would come one day after I have gone , but now things are on overdrive and could well become reality before the end of the next decade. I don't know , just thinking ..........

On my 998 engines I always had my own activator on right side of the engine to run a solid gear shaft. Now I am restoring my original XS 650 to original condition with push rod going through the gear shaft  .( Activator on left side of engine) I found this new activator , low cost and very effective . I use much stronger springs than standard and it still pulls easy , as well as disengaging perfectly . https://www.geoffsxs.com.au/OpenCart/index.php?route=product/product&path=3_22&product_id=660

They are forged . I only need one .I dont remember how many I threw away when I bought XS  650 bikes, just to raid the engines for racing . I thought somebody might have one of those raided frames sitting around doing nothing . Normally I am not a stickler for 100% purity , but this bike I had for 20 years and I would like to bring it back original in new condition as a weekend bike. ( The H2 just drinks too much  ;D)  . The part number is IT3-27420-00.  The bike is D model 1976.
