How did it happen? MXT bought this Honda 250 4-stroke to aid in the development of the MXT TAC-R air suspension system. After we made the best works air suspension system around, it was time to sell the bike... But then we remembered how much fun we had working with AJ from Service Honda on the Service CR500 project. It didn't take long to see how this could be converted to a 250 2-stroke fire breather!

This positioning of the parts is within a very narrow tolerance, and if not treated correctly, the shock will eventually fail during operation. This limited margin of error causes tuners to [...]

I wanted to take a quick moment to talk about the three-way adjuster which has the (H/L) compression and rebound adjustment placed on the shock reservoir. I have been getting a lot of questions about how it works, and how it’s possible. There have also been questions about how it functions without causing cavitation, or shock body side refill [...]
