Hey All... I'm more than a little pumped right now.. I just got off the Phone.. It's a done Deal.. I'm Going to OZ for a major test, in a new arena! RoadRacing I'll be handing out some details over time.. I'm leaving in 1 mounth and will be gone for two weeks.. I'm scared to death right now as I have so much to prepare for, and get done here at MX-Tech.. I just thought I would share my enthuasim with all of you.. We will be opening Mx-Tech Factory Racing of Australia and Launching my good Freind Steven Mudford while there..(He is the base camp..) Lots more to come...

Jer,

Congratulations on your newest expansion!

Off the topic, my '98 Yz400F forks that you tuned up in June are seemingly *slightly* more harsh than when first received.

I've never had any noticable air escape through the little vents, haven't changed the oil, etc.

Your thoughts?

Wahoo, that's awesome Jer


Any chance of coming to NZ as well? We're just across the ditch. If you even think you might pop in for an hour or so drop me a line & I'll give you our number.

Would love to meet you

I can't tell how much I'm going to love it!

Tony.. The forks are stiffer with the mid-valve change.. Firmer more feed back, but not harsher, I suspect.. That is the minimum change we can make to the mid-valve so it will hold up over time.. The only real answer form here is to re-valve..

Michelle,
I was actually hoping the flight would have a layerover so I could see some of NZ... I would be honnored to me you and your Husband.. I'll see if we can make it happen..

Jim,
Thanks man.. Always a new challange!


Wrench,
Customs are a hassle when I bring tools so I can't imagine how hard that would be with a drum of M1-ATF..
Maybe we could figure out how to get you in that barrel as a stoll away! LOL Then you could show those Factory Road Race boys everything you know about "Plastic Modifications"

Hmmmmm.......Brake actuated rear Wing/Air Brake !! Roller Blades attached to the knees!! Yea ..THAT'S THE TICKET!


I'm considering your offer...maybe I could earn my scuba rating (I'm sure I would need a Scuba Tank for breathing)!!


And when someone complains about the CHICANES...show them your MX prowess and tell them to hit the "curbing" and DOUBLE IT!


SERIOUSLY, Have a great time, try not to work too much and enjoy the sites!

Congrats Jer - If the asphalt XR suspenders you did for me a few years back are any indication, you should take the road race world by storm. Good Luck.
