Volume 1 Video 8 Bike Setup.
Video #8 from the Volume 1 Series. Why ride or worse yet race a bike that’s way out of adjustment? This 8th and final video of my Volume 1 Series covers all the important adjustments that every bike needs because of the differences in the rider’s weight and skill level and sometimes in extreme differences in track conditions. You will gain speed and confidence when all the components of your motorcycle are set up properly.
Learn in clear detail about how the: Carburetor works (2 strokes only) Suspension and Chassis work – How to test and adjust the suspension – How to test and adjust the chassis – How to test and jet the carburetor – How tire selection and tire pressure work. Slow motion and stop action will show you the rights and wrongs. Even a stock bike that’s adjusted properly is better than the best mod bikes that aren’t adjusted right. Get yours right, it makes a big difference.
I’ve spent many years testing and adjusting factory bikes with factory technicians and mechanics. Now you can learn many of the things I learned through all this hard work just by watching this video. Your dirt bike should fit you like a glove, does yours? Demo Riders are Branden Jesseman (# 44), David Kilgore (# 757), Gary Semics (# 5) and many other riders are in this video from Amateur National and Pro National competition.
Sure, this Volume 1 Video Series is older and the techniques are demonstrated on older bikes and gear (1991 through 1998) but the techniques are the same. Learning in different circumstances can be beneficial. This VO1 Series is only missing the latest techniques for Absorbing and Scrubbing jumps and a few details of Skimming whoops.
