    The suspension will blow your mind the first time you think you're going to case something and you ride it out! I had to set my sag (race sag since the new spring brought my static sag to spec) and that was it... I only played with the clickers a couple times, but that takes some time and experimenting to figure out what to do (lots of reading before I did anything) and always wrote down how many clicks I changed it from full in. Still learning
    I can't wait to get the bike back...

    It hasn't been updated in while, but he's the only dude that works in the business... Which is good because you know it's him doing the work. Best thing to do is call his shop if you want to reach him.

    If you want something done before this spring, I think you should get your stuff in this week ASAP. He's going on spring break and I don't think he will be really back in the shop until after the supercross weekend in Toronto, and he didn't have a crap pile of bikes lined up... But as soon as we get a warm spike he will be super busy.

    I had my dealer (who is also a friend from childhood and a sponsor) trying to get me to bring my bike in for the rebuild, and while they would have given me a better price, the work would not have been the same... But Mike has always been fair.

    Already I'm amazed at how much firmer it is in the garage. I used to be able to sit flat footed, now I'm tip-toed. Mike set my sag already, at 100mm, expecting the spring to sag a bit more during break-in. I told him to expect some phone calls from trackside about damping changes and he said he fixes problems all the time over the phone.

    I'll be around at pretty much every MMRS weekend, so if you come out don't be afraid to come over to the "White Trash Racing" trailer. Always helping people out if they need it... And there may be a cold one or two in the cooler!

    Yep, that's the club.
    The Saturday practice days would be good to come out for some track time!

    I disagree greatly with the first part of this comment. I wanted to order a set of case savers for my bike, at a cost of 35$ and shipping around 20 or 30$ (can't remember exactly) I think they're out to lunch for shipping. I can't speak for their customer service though, I haven't needed it at all.

    I don't think so, he's a pure dirt guy. Talk to reciprocity, he'll point you to experts at SM setup.

    I think your out to lunch.....Just ordered case savers myself. $10.26 USPS first class shipping...got them in 7 business days. The 20 or 30$ you speak of is for Fed ex or UPS...Plus the bonus is their stuff is much cheaper than here in Canada...so added cost of shipping is still most times cheaper than buying here. I have bought probably 1000$ of stuff in the past few months from Thumpertalk.com, and trust me I'm cheap as hell I buy where the best deal is! Just got a new shifter that was all messed up from shipping, replaced no problem and didn't want the old one back...pretty awesome if you ask me!

    here: https://www.thumpertalk.com/shop/cart.php?m=view

    Best deal I could find in canada was at vicious cycle 49.99 + 9$ shipping + tax

    ^^^^^Dealt with this shop a few times as well. bought a bunch of 450 stuff from them. prices are good and customer service is excellent.

    With Gnarly it's just best to call and order your stuff I find.
