Malcolm Smith Racing Hard Parts Collection Has T-Handles
What’s in your tool box? A claw hammer, dried-out JB Weld and an old ratchet with half the sockets missing isn’t going to cut it when you finally get around to that routine maintenance you put off all summer long! While the legendary Malcolm Smith might have been able to beat Baja and stay on gold medal pace at Six Days with nothing more than bailing wire, duct tape and a plug wrench, the rest of us need some real tools to get the job done. Enter Malcolm Smith Racing Hard Parts T-Handles.
The mass of a T-Handle creates a flywheel effect to more efficiently spin the wrench, while the handle itself offers added leverage to break loose stubborn nuts and bolts. Deep six-point sockets in the most common sizes should make it possible to make just about any repair short of splitting the cases.
Features for the MSR Hard Parts T-Handles include:
- Chrome vanadium tool steel construction for corrosion resistance and durability
- Includes 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, 14 and 17mm socket sizes, as well as #3 Phillips
- Comes with heavy duty vinyl carrying case
- MSRP $46.95
THE ROCK BLOCK
The new Rock Block from KTMandHusky.com is a quick and easy way to protect the shock linkage on the KTM and Husqvarna motorcycles. It slides on in seconds and only hangs down 1/4″ past the linkage. For only $119.95 it’s an extremely cost effective way to protect exxpensive parts
AEROSTICH MINI AIR COMPRESSOR
This is the smallest, lightest compressor we carry and one of the most efficient you’ll find for its size. This stripped-down mini fits in the palm of your hand and will inflate any motorcycle tire in a couple minutes. When a larger compressor is too much bulk to carry along, and CO2 cartridges aren’t nearly enough for your trip, this dedicated pump will deliver continuous pressure without fail. What it lacks in beauty, it makes up for in performance – which is what you really need when you’re flat stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Has a nice long 26″ inflator hose, 6′ power cord, and packs small in included storage sack. Comes with three adaptors: SAE, cigarette lighter and alligator clips. Lock-down delivery valve fits all bikes. Also comes with carabiner clip, so you can attach the compressor to whatever you want out of the way and off the ground, instead of having it lay in the mud or dirt. Simple, compact, and dependable peace of mind. Pump is 3.5″×3.5″×.9″. Packs to 7″×5″×3″, 1.3 lb.

FROM MY DESK…OR MAYBE MY GARAGE…OR MY PHONE
Charlie Beck is a full moto head, and happens to be L.A.s Chief of Police. This last weekend he snuck out for the first wet dirt of the season and with a group of his buddies and end up crashing. His pelvis took the hit, I texted back and forth and he’s fine and home. He’s also bummed that he can’t ride for 2 months! How cool is it to have our top law enforcement officer a dirt biker?
