How do I get a neck brace?

I would really like to get a neck brace for this upcoming motocross season. I am trying to talk my parents into getting me a neck brace cause I don't have the money. I have a job and everything but I just have enough to make payments for my bike and I will be paying for the next 5 months. I know that everyone should have a neck brace and all of the things that could happen without, or even with one. I showed them the Leatt and they saw the price and said maybe for my birthday (end of August). I don't know what to say to them. I had a hard time just talking them into letting me buy myself a dirt bike cause my mom thinks its too dangerous. I can tell my mom reasons why to get one but then I think she'll just think I shouldn't be riding at all. Is there anything I can say to her that will not freak her out?

Buy a neck roll? Buy the evs version? Split it with your parents? There are many options.

I already have an EVS neck roll and I don't think it does too much other than make the rider feel safer. The EVS brace looks like its just a regular nack roll in a plastic frame. I don't think it would be that much better. As for splitting it with my parents I have absolutly NO money.

See if your job will let you put in some overtime. Explain to them why you need the overtime and tell them how important it is to be safe while out riding. Maybe even your job will give you a sponsor to help out. You never know till you ask!!

Just sit down with them at dinner and let them know that you realize that motocross can be potentially dangerous and that you just want to take every possible precaution to maintain your safety. Then tell them an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

I like it. I'll give him some gas also!

I was looking into the EVS setup, and it looks like a VERY good piece, with a VERY good price. Leatt has had the industry at their mercy, and now that there is some kind of competition for them, the prices will begin to come down. ANY protection is better than nothing, and from the looks of things, the neck roll really isn't worth anything. I like the explanation idea, and if they value your neck as much as you seem to, they will help you out. Let us know how it goes, and ride safe!

Gather up all the crap you have laying around and sell it on ebay. Everybody has cloths, used parts, ect, ect... that's worth something on ebay. Before long, you will have more than enough money for a Leatt.

You could possibly ask them to purchase the Leatt for you, then tell them after you have you have your bike paid off in 5 months or so, you will repay them for the brace. Even though the price may seem good I would not recommend the EVS brace, there is ZERO real world tests done with it. The leatt IS TESTED AND PROVEN. Spend the dinero and get the Leatt.

no it actually isnt. the only way to real world test it is to intentionaly have riders lawn dart to see how many get paralyzed with it and without it.

WHAT???????????? There is NUMEROUS people on here that have tested theres out, INCLUDING ME!!!!!!!!! It is REAL WORLD TESTED, which means a REAL PERSON HAS ACTUALLY CRASHED WITH IT in a way that would most likely cause a severe neck injury and possible paralasis:bonk:

I think the EVS brace is suppost to be equal to the Leatte

Sorry dude but who says it would or wouldnt? Sure, you are gonna want to justify your $400 purchase by saying I would have broken my neck without it but do you really know? I don't think so.

Exactly! :thumbsup:

Why dispute it? What makes you a judge? Why are you trying to talk people out of buying something that may save them?

I've crash tested my Leatt and walked away from a crash that should've killed me. I had sore neck muscles for 3 weeks, a trashed helmet and CP, but no other injury. That enough proof for you?

no it actually isnt. the only way to real world test it is to intentionaly have riders lawn dart to see how many get paralyzed with it and without it.

So go ahead and volunteer yourself. YOU be the yard dart subject that doesn't get to wear a neck brace.

I just don't understand why some of you are so anti-Leatt. A lot of us have tested it the hard way.

I'm not trying to talk anybody out of it, I think its a great idea. I am just saying that there is no proof the leatt is better then the EVS or vice versa so why try to say there is. I have lawn darted plenty of times sans neck brace and I'm fine. How did all you people who think this neck brace has saved your life survive without it? Something tells me if it truly has saved all your necks there would be a hell of alot more people breaking their necks without them. I do want to get one, but I am gonna wait till I can see an EVS in person and/or the leatt comes down in price before I buy.

Sorry dude but who says it would or wouldnt? Sure, you are gonna want to justify your $400 purchase by saying I would have broken my neck without it but do you really know? I don't think so.

Would you rather spend the rest of your life paralized? $400 is a small price to pay for something that could/would/probably will save you at some point or another. I feel FULLY justified in the money I spent on my leatt. I ride with all the gear I feel will protect me best in the event of a crash. Good Helmet, Good boots, Knee Guards, Chest Protector, Leatt. Safety is not something to skimp out on.

do you know for sure that you would have broke your neck without it? No, you dont. were you there to witness their crash and confirm they would of died without it, no, you werent. Fact is, it is a preventative device, not a life saver. Just like condoms.

Why dispute it? What makes you a judge? Why are you trying to talk people out of buying something that may save them?

no one said im judge, im not fighting anything, not trying to talk him out of anything. im all for neck protection, its the way alot of you guys post about it that annoys me...u guys are like BUY OR DIE.

So go ahead and volunteer yourself. YOU be the yard dart subject that doesn't get to wear a neck brace.

I just don't understand why some of you are so anti-Leatt. A lot of us have tested it the hard way.

Im not anti-leatt...im just anti fear advertising.

      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.
