    Best looking footpegs on the market

    These are $135. I think, especially with flo motorsports, you get what you pay for. Pegs are your only link to the motorcycle. A peg failure could be legitimately deadly. The market would price them out if the value was out of balance with retail price. Instead they are growing rapidly. I know I feel confident knowing these guys made my pegs. They might not be of commensurate value in your eyes, but i think there's a market for premium hard parts like this. 👍🏻

    Best looking footpegs on the market

    Oh right on man! The edges of mine have eventually worn too, but I expected them to be silver aluminum by now with what I do to them. All in all, I like them and think the traction is just perfect. What color finish you got on yours?
  3. Did a review on the flo motorsports jet fuel finished footpegs. Rode em hard for 3 months and did my best to make them fail. They're still going strong. Perfect amount of grip. Not super sharp, and far from dull. Self cleaning. Wider than stock. Replaceable towers. Lifetime warranty. Sickest styling on the planet. Made by Riders, for Riders.
  4. What's up guys.. recently review the xtreme skid for AXP and made a little vid for our YouTube. Any feedback or tips would be appreciated. The first part of the video where I'm talking before all the riding clips, I had the color setting on the camera a little off. So it's not perfect, but I caught it before recording the rest of the vid. Thoughts? Feedback? Tips for next vid? Thanks guys! https://thmp.tk/xtreme

    Alpinestars Tech 10 Boots

    What struck me the most after riding the Tech 10's was the increased feel on the bike. The boot's narrow inside & the resigned toe box make it a very spacious boot on the controls rocking easily on the peg. Sizing: true to size, wide feet OK Comfort(1-10): 10 Closure System: 3 contra-locking, self-aligning, cold-forged buckles Interior: Microfiber, inner booty of 3D open cell foam, anti-slip suede heel Sole: Re-designed to shed mud/water, soft-compound sole replaceable by Astars Safety: CE rated product Aesthetics: Great fit & feel, great styling Safety was clearly in mind when designing these boots. The Foot Shell features five different compounds in a single lightweight piece to offer strength while maintaining flexibility and structural integrity. This single piece serves as the boot's chassis. The toe box has been re-designed and trimmed down and the heel has been enhanced to include DCHP technology. DCHP is a innovative safety feature that uses foam to absorb high energy impacts during a crash. The boot certainly feels safe strapped up. There is an inner booty. It takes getting used to at first but I think it helps the comfort and support a ton. This booty also has torsion arms on either side that help brace and support your ankle during times of stress. Shock-absorbing padding on the heel & ankle, anatomic footbed, ultra-thin forefoot, all to increase support, comfort & feel on the bike. One of my favorite things about them is the bike feel. Three cold-forged, self-aligning buckles and a large velcro piece is what closes the boot. The two front buckles are on top of the foot high and out of the way. The 3rd and rear-facing buckle sits at the back of the boot. The buckles never seemed to be in the way or catch, snag, come open, nothing. Superb closure system that worked repeatedly. Adjusting the straps & buckles is very easy, as is replacement if you needed to. The rear of the boot and front of the tongue feature dual-density TPU 'blades' that go up and attach to the shin & calf plates. This system, Frontal Flex Frame, gives ultimate flexion while protecting from hyper-extension and over compression. This anchors the whole boot and gives you a feel to the bike unlike most other boots. The system acts as a shock absorber by distributing energy across the boot frame. The inside of the boot has been designed so that you have a lot of 'stick' to the bike. The materials used and the low profile of the abrasion pads give you a very close feel to the bike. This is my favorite thing about them. They really do make you feel connected to the bike. The sole has been completely re-designed to improve foot to peg performance, grip, boot longevity, water/mud shedding. The dual-compound sole offers options on replacing the inner part if it gets worn out. The toe is tapered and does not hang up on anything. Even with build-ups of ice, snow & mud it never had a negative impact. Walking around in the boot is comfortable. The traction on most surfaces is decent, but not excellent traction. All of the expected features from a pro-level boot are present on the Tech 10. Double & triple stitching in places, high quality leather, abrasion resistant polymers. The boot feels fitted with or without a knee brace and was not uncomfortable after 10+ hrs. The boot continued to perform at a high level in snow-packed & iced-over conditions. The only thing I could find I did not like was how waterproof the boot was. I would like to see that improved one day because water=weight. The Alpinestar Tech 10 is an elite boot from an elite company who earns their customers with the high-quality products they're known for. I give this boot 5/5 stars dues to the innovative safety and comfort and hereby declare the Alpinestar Tech 10s "ThumperTalk Tested"

    Alpinestars Tech 10 Boots

    1 review

    Unparalleled Flex Control: A breakthrough innovation for the Tech 10 is the introduction of Alpinestars patented Frontal Flex Frame. Combining with the dual front and rear blade connectors, the Frontal Flex Frame gives the Tech 10 a complete and seamless flexion control system, from the foot shell all the way up to the shin plate, offering high performance double motion control, preventing over-compression and hyper-extension, featuring: Engineered frontal flexion control offered by a dual-density TPU connector system, uniting the lower buckle plate with the upper blade connector, buckle and shin protector. Engineered to 'float' freely between the lower and upper boot construction, the Frontal Flex Frame acts as a shock absorber by distributing energy across the boot frame while controlling forward and rearward flex, progressively releasing force which dampens and absorbs impact energies. Asymmetrical, dual pivot arms on boot frame. A unique feature of the Tech 10 is the ankle control system developed in the outer shell construction, allowing natural ankle movement, vertical compression control and improved impact protection. Asymmetrical medial and lateral double pivot system for improved levels of flexibility and precision for both independent and synchronized movement. The medial pivot arm's higher placement reduces material volume in the lower part of the boot, creating more space for the patented inner ankle brace system to have free movement and improve control. Reducing the volume on the inner side also reduces abrasion, where the boot is in contact with the bike and improves grip and feel. Redesigned dual-density TPU rear blade system engineered to prevent hyperextension while offering improved flex control and impact resistance. DCHP - Unique Heel Protection Innovation: Built into the Tech 10's unique and lightweight single-piece co-injected foot chassis is the patented Dynamic Heel Compression Protector (DHCP), an innovative safety feature which includes a fully integrated collapsible heel area with expanded poly-foam to absorb high impact energies during a crash. DCHP features a directional impact protection system which significantly reduces the effect of excessive, potentially injury-causing, energy being transferred to the ankle and lower leg. DHCP has been used by Alpinestars athletes in the demanding environments of professional Supercross and Motocross. New Inner Ankle Brace: One the Tech 10's defining features is the redesigned biomechanical inner ankle brace. Patented technology which features: Lighter, anatomically redesigned medial and lateral torsion arms which are compact and offer increased range of movement and control. In conjunction with the outer boot chassis, the ankle brace gives vertical and lateral protection from ankle and leg compression and rotation and progressive damping of torsional forces during an accident, while still allowing natural freedom of movement. Double pivot system allows the Tech 10 to retain its integrity while flexing which removes the need for alternative torsion bars for varying ankle widths and crucially gives the essential progressive resistance to rotational and vertical forces which, otherwise, are so damaging to ankles, knees, upper legs and pelvis if not arrested in a controlled way. New low-profile, pull-on design for reduce material build, less weight and to facilitate easier and quicker wearing. Innovative flexion inserts work seamlessly with new Tech 10's flex support system for ultimate in performance. TPU protection and shock-absorbing padding on the heel and ankles and an ultra-thin and flexible forefoot area for increased sensitivity and control. Dual compound removable anatomic footbed includes EVA for comfort and support and aids even weight distribution. Anatomical Shin and Calf-Plates: The Tech 10 design is slimmer and more streamlined with a contoured calf protector ergonomically wrapping around the rear leg. Constructed from a dual-density compound and combined with the rear blade system, protection is enhanced with progressive dampening of excessive torsional forces. The energy dissipating shin plate features a new anatomic design for reduced surface area and weight-saving. Unique Sole Integration: Completely redesigned sole with proprietary grip sculpturing to improve foot-peg performance, grip and mud and water run-off. Exclusive dual-compound sole is seamlessly integrated to the multi-density foot base structure with built-in support. The sole offers superior durability, grip and feel while riding and improved performance on shifter. The central sole insert features micro-grip and side hooking grip design. It is easily replaceable and Alpinestars offers a full sole replacement and boot repair service. Buckle Closure System: Anatomically optimized redesigned for weight-saving and ergonomics the new triple buckle closure system features a nylon and fiberglass compound for improved durability and strength. New slim-line buckles include high-impact bridge closures which are cold forged for precision and strength. The closure system features contra-closure, doubling closure security and a quick-release / locking system with self-aligning, memory, design for easy, precise closure and improved riding performance and security. All buckles are easily replaceable. Innovative, Lightweight Upper Construction: The Tech 10 chassis combines advanced lightweight microfiber and impact and abrasion-resistant TPU shell. Foot shell features five different compounds in a single lightweight piece to offer strength while maintaining flexibility and structural integrity. Foot shell incorporates heel and toe protection that is highly resistant to abrasion and impact and adds to the boot's overall durability. Foot shell also includes integrated shank for support and structural integrity. Frontal protection features a dual closure system with an internal microfiber flap, plus hook-and-loop fasteners for a precise fit closure beneath the buckle giving greater, micro-adjustable, precision which is convenient to operate. Soft microfiber gaiter helps seal out excessive water and dirt entry. Poly-fabric lining with 3D open cell foam incorporates anti-slip suede in heel area, keeping the foot located inside the boot. The Tech 10 boot is CE certified.

    Fatty Shinko or Goldentyre front tires

    Ahh that's where I got it mixed up. Thanks mate. I w ass thinking the factory made em 👍🏻
  9. I'm about to drive 850 miles and was planning on putting the bike how I usually transport it around to ride. I have 4 door Chevy 1500 with standard bed length so I put it corner to corner in the bed so I can close tailgate. Front wheel is passenger side front of bed, rear tire driver side back of bed. Secured by pegs. Am I creating a wind drag coming off my roof with the bike like this? Around town it may not matter but over long trips I was wondering the effect. Thoughts anyone? Preesh

    What’s the harm in extra oil for the clutch?

    I always thought with too much oil, once it gets hot & expands it would blow seals and gaskets and end up with oil places you don't want it. 🤷‍♂️

    Fatty Shinko or Goldentyre front tires

    GTs current tire is not made in China. Most tires are made in Korea. The process & compound is where the difference is. Shinko rubber is scrap recycled rubber, GTs is a specific compound. Classic example of you get what you pay for.
  12. One of the GT owner's sons races Moto. Have paid retail for all his tires. Thumpertalk will be doing a review on some GTs here soon as soon as I get em on my bike. A shinko is not a GT and never will be. Anyone who says they are is uninformed to say the least. The manufacturing process is completely different. Like everything else in life, you get what you pay for.
