Motool Slacker and Privateers.

Privateers are often not just a racer. A privateer is likely to drive themselves to a race, work on their own bike, prepare their own meals and figure out bike setup without the help of a team.

Looking for any advantage they can get, the smallest amount of help may make for huge gains in ones program. When it comes to supercross, suspension settings may just be that key to success. 

We hear the top factory guys talk about how much suspension testing they do week in and week out. We've heard it be the excuse for a bad night or the reason a hard week payed off on a Saturday night.

I recently got my hand on a tool by a company called Motool. This company sparked my interest when many privateers that I follow on social media began posting pictures setting their own suspension with the Slacker Digital Sag Scale. 

The Slacker tool makes setting your fork and shock heights a one man job. Something that privateers are used to. Magnetically clip the Slacker to your axle and extend the retractable cable to the rear fender clip. It's that easy. Within seconds, you've got the sag and static sag of your bike. Be within the range on the supplied instruction card and you are race ready. 

I'm excited to be using this tool at the dealership I work for, not only for the ease of use but to support a company that is helping privateers on their journey throughout the Monster Energy Supercross Series. Watch for these riders and stop by their pits to see just how easy it is to get their suspension setup.
