Here is another shot of Rex leading the 1975 U.S.G.P. It is dedicated to Harry Klemm “Rex’s Mechanic”. If you have not read his story about that day, you should. What a great Behind The scenes story about Harry, Rex & CZ at the 1975 U.S.G.P., welding broken motor mounts in between motos and trying to find a cure for Rex’s hands that were hamburger after moto one, which he led until things started coming apart.

SUPERCROSS PARAPHERNALIA

To build a supercross track it takes 12,000 tons of dirt, six to seven thousand sheets of plywood and a whole lotta manpower and hours to make it happen.

Roczen’s Honda differs from Seely’s in the KYB suspension, slight power mods targeting more bottom and less hit plus the electric start. Notice that there is no kick starter. Some question the weight gain over a kicker, but remember that Ken came off a Suzuki, which outweighs the Honda by almost 18 pounds.

Electric start, works pegs and shifter, a red chromed shock spring are just a few of the trick parts that KR’s Honda is fit with.

Josh Grant’s factory Kawa uses a new verison of the Showa fork which is basically a spring fork, fit with air assist.

Tomac’s Factory KX450 uses KYB suspension, his choice of dampers for the last two years (including his Honda gig).

Both Chad Reed and Cooper Webb have works hydraulic clutches. Suspension is KYB AOSS spring fork, revised from last year. Both use XTrig clamps, shock adjusters and Pro Circuit exhausts fit with Chad’s YZ getting a new resonance chambers that target enhanced bottom power.

Shane McElrath’s TLD KTM was fit with a special FMF Mega Bomb that has a new side draft chamber that targets bottom power. Last year they ran longer headers to get this power, with the new system they’re back to the shorter head pipe.

Ken Roczen’s attire was the buzz of the press conference. A small Fox logo adorned his tie, but his suit lacked the sponsor logos that every other driver has slapped on their shirts and hats.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

wolf-cz
This is 1973, Indian Dunes on the International track. My bike is a ’72 CZ250 that I procured in a trade with my brother. He got my ’73 Yamaha DT3250 for the simple reason that he couldn’t afford the upkeep on the CZ. Unfortunately for Mike, the Yamaha blew fourth gear and it was back ordered for months. He raced the Yam by putting on a two teeth bigger countershaft sprocket and rode it as a three speed. He still kick my butt. Dag.
