WISECO EXTENDS RELATIONSHIP WITH GEICO HONDA
Wiseco Performance Products has renewed its partnership with Factory Connection’s GEICO Honda team for the 2019 season. Wiseco will continue to supply pistons to GEICO Honda while working cooperatively with the team on research and development services in an ongoing effort to fortify its engine program for the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross campaigns. “We’re excited to extend our relationship with Wiseco and keep building the program,” said Dan Betley, Team Manager for GEICO Honda. “Wiseco plays a critical role in in the development of our engine package.

TESTING…TESTING

With a good smattering of rain, a bit of snow and colder temps, off-road testing has been stellar. My good buddy BP and I loaded our scoots into his cute little truck and had some fun in the milkshake zone.

I’ve been testing quite a bit with my KTM 300 TPI. I installed a Trail Tech radiator fan (under abuse she likes to steam) and then installed an S3 cylinder head that Jeff at Slavens Racing supplied. It has adjustable domes and raises the compression. slavensracing.com
Here’s the S3 head buttoned up.

 

The 300 TPI comes stock on the lean side. We’ve been testing the GET ECU, a unit with two maps, one richer and one richer with traction control. With their mapping we felt a strong improvement. Jeff Slavens remaps the GET unit to work with the S3 head and a big power gain was the result. It’s still very tractable, throttles down nicely but gets with the program when you get on it!

 

I’m using IMS Core pegs, their lower version. They bring the peg height down 5mm, which is important as I need the leg room for my cranky knees.
SXS sent us some of their Burly’ replacement handguards for the KTM. They use the stock perch mounts and are beefy!www.sxsslideplate.com http://www.sxsslideplate.com
BP leads us down a nice little snowy trail. He’s testing the new Trail Tech Voyager Pro GPS.
I’ve been wearing this UFO Diamond helmet for the last few months and flat love it. It’s incredibly light, has an extendable visor (this is a big plus for the off-roader) and is easy on the neck on long rides. http://ufoplasticusa.com

 

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

This shot from Mark Kiel is the first turn on the International track at Indian Dunes of the 500 Expert class back in 1976. Dave Haugh is leading, Steve Rawson is on his outside and if you look closely you’ll see a head bobbing in the back of the pack with a 16 on his numberplate. Me. I was a horrible starter and never really a threat to the ‘Dunes rockets. Dave was a brute and won a whole lot of AME races.
