Dave Moss project 675 content?

Hi Guys,

I want to learn more about the geometry and Setup of the 675.
So I have read on multiple occasions that Dave Moss has build a race 675 and has documented all of the steps in text and video.
But I can not find the content anywhere. The original links are dead. Has anybody got working ones or has saved the content?

Any help would be greatly appreciated
Best regards

Interesting. Keep us posted.

Heard HTMOTO has great seats. Their website does not have Paypal checkout.
Hoped their website is secure when I manually entered credit card info. Moments later, I have approx $3000 of fraud transactions from strange websites.
NEVER enter your credit card details in HTMOTO website.

I have been struggling with suspension (stock stuff). I am finally upgrading but I don't know where to start. I'd be very interested in a good read for the set-up on this thing. Maybe I'll give Dave a call myself and see what he has to say.

He’s in New Zealand for the winter so he won’t be taking calls. Send him an email. Keep in mind he gets 500+ emails per day. I try to be as detailed as possible with my questions so he only has to respond to me once. His time is also valuable, and his decades of experience are worth a lot, so I usually PayPal him $20 or so for his time, assuming he sufficiently answered my question(s), which he always does.

New Zealand?! What a bum, lol.

I am happy to pay him for his time. Good call MGF. I think all I really need a good geometry baseline. I'm pretty decent with the clickers, I just don't know where to start for ride heights and sag. I finally have a shock that has a hydraulic preload adjuster and a ride height adjuster. That will sure be nice.

Glad you will be putting it to good use brother!

I have actually followed up with a few people that have taken his masters classes or that have had him work on their race bikes, always cool to see their insight too.. if it is a common topic or general suspension, you might be able to work with other skilled individuals to help.
He is.... the Guru for sure though.


That Others May Live

I had the pleasure of meeting Dave at a last minute seminar in Sydney late last year.

Awesome guy, absolutely loves to share his knowledge and does it in a way almost anyone who rides a motorbike can understand.

I had him adjust the suspension on my Daytona, very noticeable difference. He didn't even need to look at the forks to see I dropped them through the triples by two lines.
