So how did the bike go Marty?


I could not be happier, the suspension is spot on the fork is awesome, soaks up the tree roots and rocks nicely then it's smooth through the stroke. The bike hooks up and gets drive over the rough and slippery stuff really well.
The way the bike turns is awesome, point it where you want and it goes there, no hint of the front tucking under like my old 300EXC, and no sign of headshake hello2 .

The only issue is the bike is down a bit on power compared to my old 300, the old 300 had a FMF pipe and the red spring for the powervalve and I ran 50:1.
The new bike has the yellow (medium) spring in and I am running 40:1 and standard pipe.

The bike was oiling up a bit through the slower tracks, it didn't foul a plug, but maybe it needs to be leaned out a bit dontknow , but I'm sure MPE will sort it out for me.

:D :D :D

The DDS clutch or whatever they call it is brilliant, nice action, smooth and light.


Well and truely run the bike in at 40:1 and then change the ratio as it says in the manual

The manual says 60:1 ..... F#$k that, might try it at 50:1 but not 60:1

I do 50:1. I noticed the 2T freeride is recommended at 80:1 :o
