FMF BRINGS US THE BEST OF SPRING ’16


MXEditor

Not only do the folks at The Flying Machine Factory make some very sexy exhaust goodies, but they’ve been hard at work on some new clothing designs for 2016 as well.

 

In March when the snow was blowing at home, we strapped a saddlebag and a willing passenger on the back of the bike and we headed south. When we finally ran out of food and fuel, we were in Daytona Beach, home of two-wheeled fun and sun…and what better place to check out some of this new FMF Racing gear for Spring!

 

First up we have Nick surveying the scene for jet ski tracks and out of control quads on the beach in Daytona where it’s legal to drive on the beach. He’s wearing the FMF Hustle Tee - $22; one of our favorites due to the appearance of patriotic California state bear “Monarch” and a little Honda…and with a nod to summer he’s wearing the All Time Short - $39.50; in khaki featuring cool slash-cut pockets to stash the phone and assorted sundries.

Next up we started looking under the façade and seeing what was in store for us when the sun went down and we’d be reduced to telling tall bench racing tales just to get some tourists to feed us. We’d do anything to stay out of the snow up North and if that means fibbing a little to stay alive, so be it. That’s right…his name is James Stewart…

 

While remembering what his last full meal tasted like and the “All You Can Eat” buffet that was promised 48 hours ago, Nicky is looking good top to bottom with his FMF Classy Hat in natural grey - $28; followed up by the Destroy The Start Tee (featuring Andrew Short) in black - $28…and in keeping with the “black is beautiful” theme of this combo, Nick is wearing the FMF Angler Cargo Short in black - $49, featuring a large FMF logo and tons of cargo space for both late night buffet doughnuts and spark plugs…

OK, enough of the beach and sand let’s look at something for racing! The coolest thing we saw in the FMF goodie box this year was the FMF/Fasthouse Collaboration Throwback Jerseys, and these things are so badass we haven’t been able to find anything that looks better on the track this year and that’s saying a lot with all the new colorways and vented fabrics available…just take a look at this.

 

Described by FMF as “proven and tested at local So Cal tracks and at the world famous Mammoth Motocross. It's sweet! Features vented mesh. Remember, the faster you go the cooler you are…”

 

Available in three different versions…First up we have our favorite, the white Fasthouse Jersey ll featuring a cool monochromatic design that can match any gear. It’s sleek and just enough of a retro hint to get your point across.

Next up is a real nod to the beginnings of FMF, back when they were commonly known as “The Flying Machine Factory” and echoed with the familiar red and white colors so familiar to ever racer and rider…this is simply known as “The Fasthouse Red Jersey” and it looks fast before we’ve even put it on!

And last but certainly not least in any way is the Fasthouse America Jersey. With its bold red, white and blue design, you’ll can show your patriotic spirit while waxing your adversaries out there in the whoops.

So to sum it all up, this gear is all going fast and click on any of the links for a better description and a chance to put some of this cool FMF Racing clothing and race gear in your 2016 tool box of tricks…

 

Because looking good is half the battle and staying cool is a priority when you to ride.

      The 200 club thread has worked really well, but it's hard to find jetting info there. So, when you guys get a chance, either copy and paste the info below or copy over the info from the 200 club thread that you have already inputed. Lets keep this a database of information. Thanks.
      Year: 05
      Model (E,W,XC,M):EXC
      Carb size (38 or 36mm): 38
      Slide: 6.5, stock
      Main jet: 182
      Pilot Jet: 42
      Air screw (turns out): 1.5
      Needle model/Clip position: DCL 3rd
      Altitude where you ride: 800'-2500'
      Reeds - stock
      Pipe/silencer - FMF Gnarly, 07 XC silencer
      Head mod - squish, gap - don't know, it has a Wiesco piston, though, that's all I know.
      Other mods: FMF Gnarly, 9 oz FWW, Dunlop D803 TT, 49 tooth rear sprocket, XC silencer.
      Type of fuel - pump 93
      Where in the powerband do you ride (Lugger - for technical stuff, or wide open - desert / MX): a mix, lug when it's tight and open 'er up when it widens. I generally stay just off the pipe though, riding in the meat of the power.
      Degree of satisfaction: very satisfied.
      And finally: how much spooge 1) none, 2) little, 3) medium, 4) lots - (2)
      Notes: This set up worked well for me all summer. Winter is requiring a change for riding in the 40's. Above 50, this set up works well.

      Well it's time to stop the opinions and roll out the facts (if that's possible). A dyno date has been booked for the 26th Feb to try to seperate fact from myth. Initial plan is something like below. This is all in the aid of seeing what these things really do. It's not cheap so appreciate any input on how we get the most out of this. Need to source a 19" rear road tire this week and get it all ready. If we don't melt it, it should be fun.
      Test Format.
      1. Dep+Dep Silencer HPI Ignition on Power setting
      2. Dep+Dep Silencer HPI Ignition on torque setting

      alright i just bought a 2003 ktm 200 mxc two stroke. im very excited about it and really had a ball the first time i took it out. i wanted to do a decent tune up and deep inspection on the bike before i took it out for a big ride so i did that today. i had noticed a bit of spooge around the exhaust port, so thats where i started. after removing the pipe, i discovered that the pipe had taken a hard enough hit to be deformed to the point that the inlet to the chamber doesnt fit properly in the exhaust port anymore. the pipe on it is a fmf gnarly. because of the damage to this pipe ive been looking at buying another chamber for it. ive heard that the factory pipe works really well. im guessing its a mid to top end pipe. the gnarly i know is more designed for low end. the only other pipes ive seen are made by doma and pro circuit. any info on them? what kind of rev range are they designed for? im trying to consider all my options before i get another pipe. hopefully the other aftermarket pipes dont hurt the top end like the fmf does. any info would be much appreciated

      So I bought a used low hour KTM 350 SXF for cross country racing. I needed a spark arrestor but I didn't wanna spend the $ on a PMB endcap when for a little more I could get a complete muffler with a removable spark arrestor. I chose the FMF PowerCore4 because it was pretty much the cheapest and I had one on my 09 YZ450F and had no problems with performance or excessive sound. It passed the 96db sound limit at the races. Besides I've purchased many FMF pipes before and I generally like them. So the first race of the season on the new KTM and the bike fails sound at 98db, 96db is the limit (96db is the sound limit at all CA state parks and it's the standard for most racing organizations). The guy doing the sound test suggests a repack but the muffler is literally brand new. Then he suggests contacting FMF for a quiet insert and they'll ship me one for free. I contact FMF explaining my situation and was told the quiet core retails for $39.99 and if I wanted to place an order to contact them. This is where I have a problem. I bought the muffler for trail use, it was designed with trail use in mind (it has a spark arrestor). Why should I have to pay extra for a quiet insert? It's not my fault the muffler fails sound. The PowerCore4 is the only muffler FMF sells that doesn't have a quiet core included with purchase. I've talked to 2 different FMF reps and both said I would have to buy a quiet core. It probably costs FMF $40 to make the muffler and probably less than $8 to make a quiet core. Besides the fact they risk losing a longtime and faithful customer, they can afford to ship me a free quiet core and still have made a healthy profit off my purchase of the muffler. Needless to say I'm waiting for a response and I WILL get a free quiet core, but the more hurdles I have to jump through, the less likely I am to purchase another FMF product.
