  1. In general, lowering the front will make the bike easier to turn into the corner, and cause it to hold a tighter line. It can also make the bike less stable - more steering response can make the bike feel "twitchy" and lowering the front too much can cause the front end to shake or wobble entering a corner. John (above) is correct that the rear shock or ride height can affect this also - is your rear suspension set much stiffer (or higher) than the front? You may also want to take a look at the profile of your tires, and the pressures. A cold race tire can feel (and is) very stiff; when l

  3. Liqui Moly is now officially our lubricant sponsor. They are the spec brand used in all the Moto2 and Moto3 bikes in the World Championship. We will be running that same oil in our fleet. The helmet sponsor deal is not finalized, but it is a company many have never heard of that produces the most helmets in the world and manufactures helmets for many other brands you thought made their own.

  6. "An accurate orientation in space begins with two external Reference Points. We find two points or objects or areas first and this then gives us a reckoning of our own location where we become the third point of orientation. Together, that creates an accurate tracking of the direction of our progress in relation to the other two. With those three, our eyes begin to create 3D space, which in turn improves our perception of relative speed and direction of travel. Also, and importantly, our sense of time and timing switches on quite automatically. In short, RPs help us create perspective." - Keit

  7. Good question. This is always an area of confusion for riders. What is the right pressure? Lets start of by establishing some basics. #1, we need to understand that every tire may perform differently at different pressures. What works for one tire may not be the very best for another. #2, Splitting hairs on tire pressure is not going to part the Red Sea. Meaning, 0.5 Psi or 1 Psi change in pressure is not going to change your lap times by 2 seconds or more. So keep perspective, if you ride 15 seconds off the track record your not going to magically go 10 seconds faster with sm
