REAR LOCKED UP TWICE, OUUUUUHHH!!!!! SKIPPING OUT ON ROUNDABOUTS, all in all felt uncertain. So I'm going BACK to my Bridgestone...
  4. FMX Suspension settings

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys I was wondering if anyone had played around with the suspension on their FMX. The rear suspension is odd with travel at 185mm, its somewhere in the middle of a road and off road shock.

    Dominator / FMX
    Well that's definately it for another season :cry: Left it one ride late and it shows. Here in Norway the highways dept are pdq in salting the roads at the first sign of ice, and I'd ridden the following day when the roads were wet. Talk about a rust attack :evil: So, tonight the pots came...
