So,your bike handles good enough to go barless hey ,what's your setup ?
I know i will be chasing it if i take the bars off,i won't even bother yet.
Mine is better each run (got 7 runs now)but it still looses it when i roll on kinda hard thr.It just starts going into a tank slapper and i know the gyro is up to speed.It kinda handles better if i am in a constant BIG sweeping turn.Got slipper set good,gyro clutch 2.6mm,fr.30wt.rear 80wt,damper 80wt with a preload 3mm spacer with the spring.The stiffer i get it the better it seems to be,but any stiffer damper,i may as well lock it down.Any input anyone ????
Anyone try some Ofna 1/8 buggy springs.

Wow, cool. Other winners sound well deserved as well.

You can start your own races just with friends (3 bikes now lol). Maybe you can create "Team Deen" for your UK racing and sweep the podium!
