661 Neck brace and chest protector

A pic of this is on Vital mx, somebody post the link if you can.

umm could you post a link or something? just highlight the url and copy it to a post

Can't do that from the comp here at work. Go to vital and check it out, it's a neck brace and chest protector combo from the Indy dealer show. It won't be out for a while, but here's all of us another option to the Leatt(which I fully support and in no way am I bashing them).

Heres the pic of the "guardian." :applause:

Thanks rmzRacer, now let the debate begin. LOL

looks like a great design, incorporating a chest protector into the brace. As i recall a bunch of people had to "fit" their leatt brace to their chest protector so this looks like it will be a very sleek design. Now another product to drive prices down :applause: good find

that thing looks awesome!! does anyone know a projected price?

looks aight. but im sure, like most 661 products, that it wont be that great.

Looks like a sentinel with a leatt.

If you look close you can see that it's a cobby prototype but it definitely has great potential. I'd like to see a mid torso swivel in the back plate. MSR and Answer does this with their chest protectors and it works well to keep assembly from moving around on your shoulders as your torso flexes.

If Leatt is smart, they will be working towards integrating chest and back protection in a new design right now.

The 661 also looks sort of like my modified Leatt/MSR setup. this has the back plate swivel I was talking about.

THe 661 is a prototype according to GuyB at Vital. It looks good and looks like it will distribute force over a wide area. CamP you are correct they need to make sure it doesn't ride up etc.. I am sure someone has looked at this from 661. Seems like quite a few manufacturors watch what is said on here.

thats pretty cool! I'm glad to see another neck brace in the market.

The TLD and EVS does also. the swivel protectors are the way to go imo.

I bet in a few years we'll see almost all chest protectors with built in neck braces. :applause:

haha, i agree, all the 661 stuff i have had SUCKED, i use EVS only now, i love their pastrana style knee guards...

I rock 661 gloves and love them. A buddy of mine has a 661 helmet and likes it to.

I like the direction of this brace with the intergrated chest protector, but as of right now in the prototype stage, it looks kinda cheap. Ill just get the evs, seeing how I just bought a new chest protector already anyways.

:applause: Wierd how people have different opinions. I've used MOST of the 661 products and loved them except for a few minor items. My friend bought a EVS Ballistic Jersey and it was tremendously cheaply made and weak in comparison protection wise. Like you said, the knee gaurds seem really good though....

yeah it comes down to rider preference... i tried 2 pair of 661 knee guards, a helmet, wrist brace, and chest protector, didn't like the way they felt, i just feel "more at home" with EVS...:)

that thing looks awesome!

I seen one of them ballistic armor suits in the store. I agree the plastic chest plates and everything was extremely weak. Everything else EVS makes seems to be top notch tho!

      Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Star battles Through All-New Format Hell’s Gate to Finish Second
      February 11, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Graham Jarvis has earned a strong second place at the 2018 Hell’s Gate extreme enduro. With an all-new format for this year, concluding in a 20-minute sprint race, the event posed a fresh challenge for the five-time winner.
      For the first time ever, the event kicked off with a Prologue race on the Friday night. Designed to set the starting order for Saturday’s race, the Prologue was an endurocross style event held close to the hosting Il Ciocco Hotel. Although it provided a great spectacle for the fans, the race results were eventually scrapped due to issues with the course.
      Saturday’s heat race went well for Jarvis. An expert at managing his pace, the Brit did exactly what he had to do over the five-laps, finishing fourth aboard his Husqvarna FE 250 in the cold conditions of the Tuscan hills. The position gave him a good start for the night race, which saw riders set off at 3.30pm for a tough three-hour multi-lap event.
      At the conclusion of the night race, the top-10 riders were given a 15-minute break before contesting the new 20-minute endurocross in the arena area of the venue. In freezing conditions, the riders fought bar-to-bar in front of the record-crowd of spectators to decide the overall winner. With the final results calculated on the sum of the previous legs, Jarvis was announced as runner-up, just a few minutes behind eventual winner Mario Roman.
      Graham Jarvis: “I really enjoyed the racing today, I always do here at Hell’s Gate. It’s been a tough couple of days and I’m still getting used to riding the 4-stroke, but the bike has been absolutely faultless over the entire weekend. It has been pretty close between the top-four all day and it’s all come down to the final 20-minute race off. It would have been nice to take my sixth win at the event, but I’m happy with second.”

      My top end went on m 98 cr 125, the needle bearing clip came out and broke apart and shrapnel got everywhere and blew it up. I cleaned out the top end and washed out the crank with the bike upside down. the bike starts up great and seems to run fine but im getting a weird di-di-di-di-di-di-di noise coming from the motor. i tried adjust the power valve and tightening everything but the noise is still there. Here is a link to a video where you can hear the sound. It gets louder as rpm's get higher and at really low rpm barely idling it goes away. I am pretty new to bikes and 2 strokes so any help would be appreciated.

      I want to get a cheaper used FMF exhaust for my bike. The one on eBay I was looking at had some dents in it. Do dents in the muffler have a big impact on the performance? Also the pipe looks to be turned the wrong way does that rotate? I don't want to buy this if the pipe will not rotate because I think it looks like its turned the wrong way and wouldn't fit.
