The Best Suspension, and more!
The United States enters a new era in many aspects, especially the way companies look at the economy as it relates to their industry and individuals like yourself when considering how to spend your hard earned money. Factory Connection has been preparing for 2010 and beyond for over 20 years since its inception in 1988. Our Mission: to provide quality workmanship and the best suspension performance, products and customer/technical support resulting in The Best Suspension. PERIOD.
Factory Connection realizes there are many choices when choosing a suspension company. You should consider a number of variables when choosing the correct company for your suspension needs. This is why we focus on several key initiatives that will result in 1 common goal for you and us...The Best Suspension. PERIOD.
Experience/Testing – Factory Connection is a team of over 30 employees with over 150 years of suspension industry experience. Each individual’s creativity, knowledge and ideas are utilized to create the best working personalized suspension settings for each customer. The primary difference with Factory Connection suspension is… we look at the entire system design of the Forks, Shock and chassis in order to enhance qualities and eliminate original weaknesses.
Every setting is created off of countless hours of testing that encompasses input and effort from at least 5 of our technical team leaders. Most companies have 1, maybe 2 technicians creating settings. Factory Connection has 5 professionals with local, national, Canadian and world championships to their credit. The result is a suspension component that has been modified to provide you with the most consistent, controlled, predictable and confidence inspiring performance available in the marketplace.
Innovation/Re-design – The Research and Development department continued to pursue not only new and innovative ideas, but also to re-design and improve the performance products we offer. Factory Connection Fork and Shock springs continue to lead the industry in quality, consistency, fitment and performance.
Our R&D engineer and manufacturing managers have developed two new series of springs (ALS series Shock spring for 09 CRF450R & 09 KXF450, LLS series Fork springs for 09 CRF450) and re-designed virtually every model spring we make. Some of our Shock springs are now up to 13% lighter (290 grams) and we have durability tested up to 500,000 cycles when the OEM standard is 200,000 cycles.
Our Fork springs are designed specifically for your fork type and do NOT require any spacers like many of our competitor’s springs. Factory Connection designs our springs to meet high standards and they must pass 2 Quality Assurance inspections before we approve any production run.
Another excellent example is the KTM/WP Reservoir Bladder kit. We innovated this product in 2000. In 2003 we changed the original 52mm model and designed it to work on the 2003 KTM’s. For 2009 we have re-designed to offer more volume which provides smoother action, cooler shock temperatures and less shock fade.
Customer Service – Our customers past, present and future are our #1 priority. Factory Connection’s mission is not only to meet, but to exceed your expectations. As each of us reflect back on the previous years, we are amazed at how many of our customers have also become our friends. The Factory Connection team culture is to treat you not just as a customer, but more importantly as an off-road motorcycling friend.
Turn Around Time – The majority of the year our suspension service turn around time is 1-2 business days. We enjoy riding and racing as much as you do. This is the reason we employ the most experienced technicians and customer service professionals in the industry. For those critical situations we offer expedited service. Call us to schedule guaranteed same day suspension service at no extra charge.
Thank you for considering and choosing us as your suspension company.

Buchanan, Michigan’s RedBud is the centerpiece of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. Located just above the Michigan-Indiana state line, RedBud is among the most highly regarded motocross tracks in the world, and July Fourth weekend there is one of the region’s biggest events in general. Located in the beautiful rolling hills of southwestern Michigan – a state with an affinity for off-road recreational vehicle use – RedBud has bragging rights to claim the largest attendance of any U.S. motocross race, year after year. With just the right soil mix, plenty of room for passing, and the biggest jump on the circuit - the infamous LaRocco’s Leap, named after local legend Mike LaRocco - RedBud is the top motocross destination in a region that loves its motorsports. And the loyal Michigan fans’ chants of “Red Buuuuud!!!” are well-known throughout the motocross world.
One winter nearly forty years ago, Valparaiso, Indiana’s Gene Ritchie took a trip to Buchanan for a snowmobile race. He rode around the property, imagining that a great motocross track could be carved into the hills and fields. When that property came up for sale in 1972, Ritchie pursued his dream of creating a national-caliber motocross track. He and his wife, Nancy, found some willing partners and purchased the property. The Ritchies, the Pattersons, and the Millers built their dream track and began holding races in 1973.
RedBud held its first AMA Motocross National in 1974, and it was won by another local motocross star, Hadley, Michigan’s Mike Hartwig. The facility also hosted Trans-AMA races each fall, often featuring battles between the world’s best rider at the time, Roger DeCoster, and America’s best, Bob “Hurricane” Hannah.
Within a few years, the original partners moved on and the Ritchie family relocated to Michigan to become full-time motocross promoters. Gene opened a bike shop, Red Bud Cycle, selling Bultacos and Maicos near the track entrance. The shop mechanic, a local teenage MX racer, became the centerpiece of the Friday night MX intermission shows; that teen was the late “Wheelie King”, Doug Domokos, who went on to set world records and wow fans around the globe with his wheelie shows and spectacular stunts.
Other stars emerged from the RedBud amateur races, too, most notably the Bomber, Mark Barnett from nearby Bridgeview, Illinois, Michigan’s five-time Women’s National Champ Lisa (Akin) Wagner (now on staff at RedBud!), six-time AMA MX and SX Champ Jeff Stanton and of course, “the Rock”, Mike LaRocco.
Also, since 2005, RedBud has played host to the second round of the Monster Energy Triple Crown of Motocross, a series-within-the-series where a rider can earn a $50,000 bonus if he sweeps all three rounds. Over the years, only Ricky Carmichael and James Stewart have managed to pull it off. For 2009, the Monster Energy Triple Crown of Motocross returns again to RedBud (as well as High Point and Budds Creek) and will be shown live on NBC.
RedBud is also one of four rounds on the 2009 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championships schedule which will host the FMF Two-Stroke Invitational, which will bring back the sights and sounds (and pre-mix smell) of two-stroke motocross bikes. Check it all out on July Fourth weekend, 2009, at RedBud!

The Crusty Demons are a group of daredevil motorcyclists from the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
This all started in 1994 when filmmakers Jon Freeman and Dana Nicholson had been accumulating footage to showcase a behind the scenes expose of the lifestyle of an American pro motocross rider in action, 145ft plus jumps, 45ft high in the air soaring over sand dunes, mountains, houses, buses and anything else secure and steep enough to hold the weight of bike and rider.
The end result was Fleshwound Films and the first video Crusty Demons of Dirt . The launch of this video was to change the face of motocross and create a sport that has become the most popular of all extreme sports today, Freestyle Motocross (FMX) .
Fleshwound Films spent two years gathering footage for the first motocross film and 1994 saw the release of Crusty Demons of Dirt . The excitement and hysteria the film created was phenomenal and its success brought about a lot of poachers. Although others were out there trying to create motocross videos, none managed to achieve quite the same impact that Crusty had. Following the success of the first film, Crusty 2 was premiered 18 months later. Sales exceeded expectations and tripled from the first video as the Crusty phenomenon began spreading worldwide. What was somewhat a stagnant sport had received a positive injection of interest and proved its worthiness of being showcased Internationally. People began buying the clothing worn by their heroes (Fleshgear) and thousands around the world were getting bikes and heading for the racetrack, mountains, sand dunes and the sky.
It was only to grow bigger. With the release of Crusty 3 in 1997 and the videos and sport still booming with popularity, freestyle motocross pioneers Lofty and Brian Jordan went to Fleshwound Films with the idea of staging a freestyle motocross competition. Four months later the first competition was held in Las Vegas. This new side of the sport was looked down upon by the industry and many people said it would go nowhere - the excitement amongst the fans indicated that they strongly disagreed.
Before long FMX was introduced as a new sport in the 99 X games in San Francisco and was given worldwide exposure through ESPN television. FMX was then stamped as the king of Extreme, becoming the number one sport at the X Games.
Competition requires riders to travel a course for 90 seconds performing as many tricks as possible, which are judged by a panel. Usually about 10 jumps are completed in this time bracket and riders compete for prize money.
Fleshwound Films undoubtedly played a crucial part in the evolution of the sport, they are still shooting Crusty Films today and recently released the 10th instalment titled – Crusty X – A Decade of Dirt. They have successfully implemented their vision into the industry, introducing the world to their friends and lifestyles whilst creating gods in the stars of their video series. A highlight for them has been coming up with such a unique idea; planning to make it happen and seeing it grow beyond their vision internationally. Travelling to film in Australia, Japan, Brazil, Africa and Peru to name a few, has meant Fleshwound Films created 'The National Geographic of motocross'.
