GREY WOLF RELAXED-FIT

GREY WOLF RELAXED-FIT They could have called it Grey “Lump” riding gear, as any rider with a seasoned waistline would have ample space in these new threads. All Grey Wolf gear is conservatively styled, using Kevlar, double and triple Nylon stitching, and the best YKK zippers ensuring durability. Dualsport riders will appreciate a look that […]

LEM MOTOR LX2 USA MOTO-BIKE

LEM MOTOR LX2 USA MOTO-BIKE Christmas is nearly upon us, and what better way to surprise your four- to seven- year-old moto-star than with the LX2 moto-bike under (or at a mere 80 pounds, hang it from) the tree? The LX2 is powered by a 50cc single speed automatic, and features upside-down forks with four […]

OAKLEY EYE JACKET 2.0

OAKLEY EYE JACKET 2.0 This most recent addition to the Eye Jacket series features Oakley?s first flush-mounted lens orbitals, which means they raised the lens to the frame surface. Those ingenious chaps at Oakley got their inspiration for the new shades from the Oakley Time Bomb wristwatch, the flush-mounting being inspired by the watch?s crystal, […]

NEW BIKES FOR 2001!

NEW BIKES FOR 2001! Yamaha YZ250F: Yamaha test rider Doug Dubach was spotted testing the prototype Yamaha YZ250 four-stroke. The bike looks just like the 426, but it sure sounds different, mostly because of its 13,500 rpm redline. The bike is legal for 125 class racing, and according to Jeremy McGrath ‘It will be like […]

HOT TOPS

HOT TOPS After all this time, we still haven’t got the plastic tank thing figured out. As soon as you take a new bike into the dirt, it isn’t a new bike anymore. The stickers immediately peal off the tank and if you wear knee braces, you might as well take a hammer and chisel […]

ADVANT-EDGE TAILGATE NET

ADVANT-EDGE TAILGATE NET Short-bed truck owners know the horrors of fitting two dirt bikes in their haulers without lowering the tailgate. It’s almost like motorcycling’s version of Twister. We prefer to leave the tailgate down, but then gearbags and gascans litter the roadways, especially with Lump’s startled-rabbit launches from red-lights. If you use extra tie-downs […]

STEAHLY LIGHTING KIT

STEAHLY LIGHTING KIT Nothing is harder than lights. You might as well try to modify your motocross bike for interplanetary flight as try to put lights on it. First you have to figure out some way to power the lights, then deal with wiring and so on until you’ve spent almost $1000 bucks. And when […]

ACERBIS YZF GAS TANK

ACERBIS YZF GAS TANK While the YZ400F continues to rewrite the competition four-stroke history books, not every YZF owner is a dyed-in-the-wool motocrosser. Some five-valves will never see a water truck, much less a groomed motocross track. While the stock 2.1-gallon tank is great for short rides, it simply doesn’t cut it for extended loops […]

BIG SMILE

BIG SMILE We couldn?t resist this. No, the silver raincoats aren?t for sale, but the knowledge of the man behind the smile is. Malcolm Smith still works for MSR and is always on the lookout for cool new products. Check out the MSR catalog, you?ll be surprised what?s in there.  

BULTACO

BULTACO Actually it?s a Sherco in the U.S.? The Bultaco name is owned by a regional distributor of vintage parts. As far as we know none of them will fit on the new trails bike. Look for a test soon in the pages of DIRT BIKE.  

SEMI-QUIET DR

SEMI-QUIET DR There?s nothing quieter than a stock Suzuki DRZ, besides maybe a skateboard (maybe). If you think you need to unplug the stock muffler a little without making the bike an ear-spliter, then WER already has a replacement end cap.  

MAGURA CLUTCH

MAGURA CLUTCH Magura makes the master-cylinders for most of the hydraulic clutches out there. Now they also make slave cylinders. If you need hydraulics, talk to any dealer that carries Magura stuff.  

BRAKE CALIPER

BRAKE CALIPER Everyone makes brake pads, but there aren?t many companies that actually make brakes. Braking is about to introduce an entire caliper for riders who feel like they aren?t getting enough stopping power from their stockers.  

TI FOOTPEGS

TI FOOTPEGS We know, $200 is a lot of money for foot pegs. But for titanium, it?s actually a bargain. DSP is branching out and making lightweight products besides pipes. The foot pegs will be available this spring.
