Dave Moss-The suspension guy

Has anyone ever had him work on there suspension? Was there a noticeable difference? He is the same guy in the videos that can be seen at OTT

Just curious, I am on a new bike with suspension I have never ridden and he might be the first guy to bounce on it.

Thanks MH any feedback will be appreciated.

It would be a good idea to use whomever is at the track.Really hard to dial in your suspension without being there

over the course of the last couple years I have had the blessing of working with a few different tuners! This is not that kind of thread. I am looking to get a baseline on the bike before i enter the first race weekend at msrh, where i am undecided who I will work with for tuning the bike at cmra events! I have had really positive results from working with both Jim C and Roger A. I wasn't asking for a plug on who your tuner was, lol

Simply put, anyone ever worked with or seen Dave Moss live in action!

Ok, back to waiting for anwers

Dean Im just stating that Jim C has been doing suspension and data testing for almost alot of the track in America. Im not saying cause i use him you should too, but for Texas tracks its kind of better to go with the Jim who has turned knobs over and over again to compensate for the track and its conditions. i feel like for him to work with Ty and help Team KTM come up with suspension and do R&D work, then its good enough for my slow not on the line ! :thumbs:

I understand where you are coming from, any info is good info i feel like and I had the pleasure to work with some other suspension guys from Ben Spies old tunner aka Billy Weise to even having things done by the Ohlins' Thermos Man himself.

Its always good to think outside of the box sometimes, and i do alot of over analyzing. But sometimes its best not to try to reinvent the wheel. I learned this qoute from alot of guys "KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID"

I've watched most of his online videos.. I own his DVDs, but he still makes me uncomfortable when he talks to people. Dunno why.

this is not a who is the best tuner in cmra, texas, etc kind of thread! has nothing to do with texas! it was a question I had if anyone ever worked with or had a buddy who worked with dave moss. So Jim, Roger, Billy, P1, etc arent even in the equation here!

this has nothing to do with who will bounce on, build, etc my suspension! it is strictly has anyone ever worked with dave moss or has a buddy work with dave moss! If so, did he/she learn anything, get their bike handling better, etc etc!

still no one?
