891 SUSPENSION & PERFORMANCE
Grandpa and I just picked up my Yamaha from TJ Bronson of 891 SUSPENSION located in Sandy, Utah. I was spending spring break with grandpa and grandma with my sister, Katie, my cousin Presley and my girlfriend Piper down in Mesquite, Nevada. We left early Friday morning and drove from Mesquite to Sandy just to pick the bike up. I’m really excited to see the difference but still have a couple more weeks to get my strength back from the broken Fibula and muscle tear.

OUT LAST THE COMPETITION WITH 891 SUSPENSION
What is 891 suspension & performance?
When I talk with other guys at the track I came to a conclusion that 891 Suspension & Performance is the best place to get the best set up for your dirt bike. With a specialty in suspension, TJ knows all the in’s and out’s to make your dirt bike handle better and believe me, safer!
TJ will build each set of suspension to match your skill level, bike, and discipline.
TJ also provides a wide range of services to help keep you out there riding. TJ has helped me with new tire installation, new tubes, new chain installation and new sprocket installation. He can also do whole motor rebuilds and he knows what he’s doing.
I know now that my problem with my brand new 2021 Yamaha YZ250F was suspension. I found out that most any handling issues can be fixed with basic suspension adjustments or in my case a rebuild to adjust for my size and weight. I should have done the adjustments right when I got the new bike. I might not have crashed and broke my leg.
From my point of view ask yourself; have you experienced any of these symptoms on your dirt bike during a race or ride?
Your rear wheel won’t track a line properly?
Your front wheel won’t track a line properly?
You’re losing some stability at high speeds?
You find that your front wheel won’t stay planted?
You’re finding that the rear wheel bucks too much?
Or even that your front end feels saggy and unresponsive?
I found out that my Yamaha bike’s stock suspension was tuned to work for a variety of riders and riding styles for a guy who might only weigh around 170 pounds; that didn’t work for me being over 5’11” and around 250 without gear. It’s a great mid-range setup for most guys that will get you out on the track with ease, but once you start pushing those stock settings you’ll often find they’re lacking in most of the critical areas. New bikes from brands like Yamaha are known for being well-balanced right out of the box, but I now know that even that new suspension will need a tune-up for a lot of riders.
So, my bike is done. My broken leg is healed. In a couple of weeks it’s time to test the new suspension from TJ at 891 Suspension. Yeah, I’m excited.
