RPS Manufacturing introduces the "Drag bike suspension and chassis school"
Have you wondered what constitutes a "Great Setup" on your motorcycle drag bike?
What is the difference on setup for Street/Pro ET (8.88 - 10.00+ ET), top gas/real street (7.70 - 8.80+ ET), and Pro Street (6.40 - 7.40+ ET).
Have you wondered, "How do I stop wheelies?"
Can I completely change how my bike chassis is working without making a change on the shock?
Have you wondered, "What is a shock supposed to do when it is all working right?
"Hey I watch the Pro Street guys, I want my bike to squat like that!"...why this not a good idea for many.
These questions and many more are answered in the "Drag bike suspension and chassis school".
Classes are 175.00 per person - Costs include lunch and 75-Page Suspension setup book.
