  1. For supermotos does radial vs bias tires make a difference? Not a race supermoto, just a commuter that see everything from highway speeds, dirt tracks, twisites, city streets, and wheelies. Does a radial vs bias tire have an affect on a bike such as a supermoto (drz400sm to be specific, cant see it making a difference though). If there is a difference it or big or noticeable? Thanks
  2. Oh really haha, by bad. I always thought hard tires had hard compound rubber, to wear better. And soft tires were soft compound to flex and grab better.
  3. I know you guys probably get very tired of people asking for what tires tires to get, so sorry but here i go anyways. Im pretty much looking for a do it all tire that will last. Not need to be replaced after several rides. I mostly ride trails and single track, with the occasional track day. The terrain where i live changes alot. When its dry out the trails are as hard pack as you can get. With alot of rocks, and sharp rocks. But the second it gets a bit wet it all just turns in to a sloppy mess. Thick, thin, slimy clay and mud. Its a nightmare. I was originally looking at some desert tires. Hard terrain tires with a harder compound to handle all the rocks, and not fall apart after a few rides. But i worry that desert tires wouldn't handle the mud very well? Then i was looking at softer tires that would handle the mud better, but being soft would get destroyed on the hard sharp rocks. So im kind of stuck?? What tire would be a good choice for me? Ones that don't excel in anything, but also doesn't suck in anything. Something that will last and not need to be replaced right away, but also not be useless when it gets wet and muddy. Tires that i can go from the hardest and rockiest of trails, to the muddiest of mud trails. A good do it all tire that will last and not chunk or wear down after a few rides (preferably last an entire season of weekend riding). Thanks
  4. Anyone have experience with both of the Atlas guards? Ive been waiting a long time to get the guardian to go with my brace, but am starting to look at the defender again. How much coverage and protection does the defender provide? I like the guardian because of the shoulders but am not so sure about the foam protection instead of hard plastic. I dont really know. Pretty much just looking for opinions on both, Thanks
  5. Yes that is correct. Haha lets just say i learned about that the hard way on my supermoto. Didn't make it around the first corner without nearly sliding out! Took a ride or two to wear it off.
  6. Haha probably sounds like a very dumb question, but is there any sort of braking in of ditbike tires as there is with street bike tires? Or are they as good as there going to be brand new? Thanks
  7. Im looking at stunt clutches for there easier pull. There is the very popular RSC, and i just got one for my dirtbike and it is very nice. But also rather pricey. Then there are other cheaper stunt clutches that are made in chine. But look very similar to the RSC. Like they look identical to the RSC, both in quality and build. Has anyone tried one of these cheaper chine stunt clutches? How are they? Are they pretty much the same as RSC, or are they not as good? I jsut find it hard to pay that much for the RSC if you can get practically the same thing for much cheaper. Other than the fact that RSC comes with the good warranty. Thanks
  8. Although originally designed for stunt riders, it sound like more and more people are starting to use these clutch levers for dirt. Anyone here have one setup on the bike? If so how do you like it? My bike has a brutal clutch pull and am looking at getting one to make it better. Are they really that much better? From the reviews it sounds like they are pretty nice! Thanks
  9. Mine didn't come with the smaller spark arrestor screen. It came with the quiet core, which just reduced the size of the hole at the end. And the spark arrestor with quiet core. I need the spark arrestor however. Was looking at buying just the smaller screen spark arrestor without the quiet core, but wanted to ask here first to see if it makes any difference at all.
  10. Is there any power differences for an fmf 4.1 with the quiet core/spark arrest, vs without these? Or is it just sound difference? After installing the exhaust i started the bike without these inserts installed, and it sounded really good. Didn't get to ride with it like this however. Then i put the spark arrestor in. And it still sounded good but didn't have the same feel to it (just from the sounds). Is this just purely a sounds difference, or is there any power difference between the two (insert in vs no insert). Obviously due to physics there is a power difference. You cant reduce sounds without reducing power output. But is it in any way noticeable, or so small that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference other than the sound. Also this was on a 2009 wr250f with a fmf mega bomb, but i don't believe this topic is much bike related so i posted it here. Thanks
  11. Ice riding this season i bent my exhaust in half. So time to get a new one. I originally had the fmf 4.1 with mega bomb. It felt great. I was wondering what is the difference between the 4.1 and ti-powercore is. Either one would be paired up with the mega bomb. Why is the 4.1 more expensive? Does it have any extra performance over the ti, or just lighter. Im not concerned about weight or sounds. Just the performance out of it. Also im pretty set on getting an fmf so not looking for other pipe recomendations Thanks
  12. Anyone have this exhaust for there wr250f? If so how do you like it? What are your opinions on this pipe? This vs fmf? After folding my fmf in half over the winter i am in search of a new exhaust and came across one of these for a 2014 yz250f. Would this fit a 2009 wr250f? Would it fit fit the fmf mega bomb? Thanks
  13. Obviously street supermoto tires will never be good in the dirt. But i still enjoy riding with them in the dirt. I was wondering if i should be changing the tire psi for dirt riding. Will this make them preform any better than they do a street levels? What psi would be a good level to increase there performance in dirt? Thanks
  14. I currently have the Moose Hand Warmers on my bike and they are several years old. Im putting a new throttle tube and grips on my bike. Should i replace the grip heaters with new ones? Obviously im going to need to replace the one for the throttle tube. Im just not sure if i should be replacing them both. Do they loose heat over time? Would i notice new ones being warmer than the old ones? Or will they be the seam heat, old vs new? Just not sure if they wear down and don't produce heat as well as they do when new. Thanks
  15. I currently have a FMF Q2 exhaust with power bomb. This is the setup i got the bike with so i have nothing to compare it to. How is this setup? How is it compared to other setups? This setup vs stock? This setup vs say a power core 4? Sound and power wise. Mostly just curious! Thanks
