..or words to that effect....

Questions like the one asking for diagrams of suspensions bring forth the obvious question:

Why doesn't someone write a book on dirt bike suspension. A really useful book like Eric Gorrs general purpose off road book except dealing in depth with dirt bike suspension.

I have heard that there is a pretty fair suspension guy who is a personal friend of Eric Gorr. Has Eric derived significant income from his book? Couldn't he grease the skids at Motorbooks? Wouldn't it be fun to "cheese" off all the other tuners? My opinion is that there is enough art involved in suspension tuning that making knowlege of the mechanics of suspension will have little if any negative affect on business.

Hey, every spray can has instructions on the back and somehow Troy Lee keeps painting helmets....

Mace, I for one would buy it today!! Sign me up! ..you listening Jer?

As for taking away business, I personnally have already spent more money playing and trying to understand suspension than it would have cost me for full revalves! In fact, my plan is to get mine re-valved professionally for comparison sake and to further my understanding by example.

The ones out to save money, by doing it themselves, probably would never have paid to have it done in the first place...just my observation.

Mace, watch out for the glint of those pearl handle nickel 6 shooter in the sun!

Only a quad riding pit racer or a freestyle poser would carry a pearl-handled pistol!

Those are half waffle Renthals!

I'll help with the book. You provide the knowledge. I'll find someone who can put pen to paper and pass rational thoughts. (I can't)
