I have to say, Berto. You take a hit pretty dam well. ....But you still pissed me off last year so don't get all gay on me now


Yes Rob, come back please



Hey I want to share a really cool solution Jason came up with for our airbox/air filter problem. For Buttonwillow I came up with two screens stretched over the velocity stacks, then a thin dirtbike filter material stretched over the screen. DIDN'T WORK FOR SHIT, the motor sucked it all in and shot it out at whomever was in our draft. Not good.

So Jason took over and shaped a heavier screen just behind the intakes, far from the velocity stacks, and then set some filter material inside of that. His new idea worked real well. Made me actually feel kind of stupid. Thanks Jason...




And by the way, yes we do now have corporate backing direct from Red Bull

I didn't get the whole race, I was left to one of my backup cameras and it shut itself down about 5 laps into it... Next time Eric I'll bring out a better camera for you!!

Nice quality on that vid

Sounds like that KTM hates to stay in gear under hard acceleration though... pretty scary exit on 11 that first lap

Good call Lazerus - our bike did that EVERY time out of eleven. At first I thought it was the duration time setting on the electronic shifter interrupt. But then I went to manual, no shifter at all, and it still came out. Odd thing is it wasn't missed shifts. They actually went in and the bike started accelerating in the next gear - then suddenly it would pop out. But only in that gear, at that point, in that turn. That's what got us losing the most time on Berto and on Montano. Already we're at a slight disadvantage acceleration wise, but with it coming out of gear too...? Devastating.

Bike's coming apart this week, we'll see what it is. So far that LC8 motor has been rock solid for twelve weekends of complete abuse. We're about to find out it's weak points...

All I can say is 'wow'. Never thought I would get to see your hydraulic fluid slosh around Gogo!! Mechanical issues aside thanks for the great riding, and as well to Yakoo for providing the footage. Can I use this service myself in three weeks at Infineon?

Awesome video, and I think the only thing more fun than reading GoGo's reports are seeing them pan out in Video!!

Great ride report...always a highlight to read yours. And the video really shows that you need to shoehorn a 1198 motor into that chassis...

Thanks for taking the time to share, as always

Thanks for chiming in brother. Here's my hit list for next round:

Lower the bike up front so we can finish turns. Free-up the fork stiction in the hopes of finding better feel/traction. Or...... ditch our forks all together and fit some Ohlins R&T legs up there, with offset triples. We need to get the buggy to stay in gear. We need to get a proper race shock for the rear. Right now if we set it up to drive out hard and early with predictable spin, we lose compliance, and the ability to react to the back end of driving bumps. Like through the exit of ten, while driving real hard, it'll spin up and try to flick me off. So we speed up the rebound and it tracks through there good, but I'm shot coming out of the lower speed exits like turns 4 or 3 or 7 or 9. No high AND low speed adjustability in our current shock, plus there are such huge leaps inbetween clicks. WP has a proper shock for the Superduke, we've just been hoping NOT to throw much money into this bike in the hopes that we might get some help moving into an RC8R. Not having much luck there so perhaps it's time to stop fumbling and get this bitch going better.

I'd like this Superduke to land off a transition from extreme left to right like our Ducatis did. Just throw it into the pavement and go. I'd like it to land at the right attitude, and stay there throughout the turn so we're not going wide all the time. I'd like to be able to keep up with the pace of the esses out of seven and into the wheelie hill. As it's been we are always falling behind and blowing turn-in points and apexes. I'd like to be able to square off the exit of the Carousel, early, like I used to be able to do on the Ducatis. Lengthen the straights, etc. I can't on this bike yet.

Sounds like maybe you've got different ideas, what's up?

Great video, aside from the fact that it revealed in great detail how shitty I am on the brakes into T-9 and how good you are on the brakes in general . Thanks GoGo for the fun racing. I raced with you for 750S and F1 and I could hear that damn twin thumping up on me on the brakes. I look forward to more battles in the coming rounds. -Jamie
