That's Dave (#31) talking to his daughter, Heather, in the starting gate at the Vet World Championships at Glen Helen Raceway in California. Picture was published in the February 2017 issue of Motocross Action magazine. A larger version of the picture is included below.

We're moving because our current property was purchased by Suburban Auto Group in order to build a 32-acre automotive complex. In the meantime, our retail store (parts and accessories) will remain open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday (closed Saturday & Sunday) through Friday, July 14, 2017. We are restricting our service work to jobs we have already taken in plus oil changes and mounting/balancing tires. We will be sending all suspension work to TCD. By combining our talent and resources with TCD, we will be better able to serve our customer base that includes pro racers, veterans, amateurs, dual sport riders and everyone in between. Please be patient with us as we work through this transition. Thank you for your business.

We Ship Worldwide!

Owner Tony Cho had us fully restore his 1975 Honda CB 400F motorcycle. After the build, we entered it in the Michigan International Motorcycle Show in Novi, Mi where it took first place in its class! Thanks for your support!

Dave also conducted a suspension set-up seminar for students right after lunch. Dave and his team are experts at setting up a rider's suspension for his or her weight and skill level. Racers of all skill levels including pros use Tech-Care Racing Suspension set ups.


Jim Vens (#178 below) finished 17th in Moto 1 and 4th in Moto 2 of the 55+ Intermediate Class for 10th overall. Nice recovery from the first Moto, Jim!

Don't worry about the need to check KTM's  WP AER forks' pressure each and every time you hit the track. Do, however, bleed both of the air screws on the top of of the forks, but be gentle with the air side screw. (Read: "Don't mess with the air side screw or you'll screw up your suspension."

Motocross Action's
KTM AER Forks Set-up Tip

           Honda has introduced the latest version of race-winning  CRF450R and introduced the new CRF450RX, an off-road oriented race bike based on the R model. Both are all new for 2017 with features designed to push each to the front of the pack.
∙ The new Unicam engine with a straight downdraft air intake produces increased power and torque across the rev range.
∙ Due to customer feedback, the SFF (Separate Functioning Forks) have been replaced by coil spring Showa 49 mm A-Kit forks with a less complicated adjuster on the top of the tubes. No air! (While Dave really liked the SFF set-up and thought they made for a better handling motocrosser, he thinks the new spring A-Kit forks are going to work better for a lot of riders.)
∙ A lighter swingarm assembly and aluminum chassis lowers the center of gravity and reduces weight thereby offsetting the additional weight of the spring forks. The titanium gas tank helps reduce weight, too!
∙ Electric start as an option on the R model and standard on the RX model!
         Dave is really excited about the new CRF450R and CRF450RX models. So excited that he thinks either one could be bike of the year. Stay tuned to see if Dave’s prognostication turns out to be correct!
