WORKS CONNECTION ’23 YZ450F FORK ADJUSTERS (YZF)

Works Connections’s all-new Fork Adjusters for the ’23 YZ450F are machined from aircraft grade aluminum and replace the stock plastic adjusters. They use a 4-flute design and made them slightly taller to allow for easier adjustments with a more solid detent. Factory look with magnesium color and laser etched +/- markings for reference. The 4-flute design is much easier to use with or without gloves on. It is also easier to gain access to the fork bleeder screw due to the smaller size adjuster. $39.95

DUNLOP TRAILMAX RAID ADV TIRE

The all-new Dunlop Trailmax Raid is designed for 40% on-road and 60% off-road use, combining expertise and technology from Dunlop’s extensive line of tires. The Trailmax Raid is suitable for a wide range of bikes from mid-size dual sports to large adventure bikes, offering exceptional off-road capabilities paired with outstanding wet weather grip and adventure touring performance.

The Trailmax Raid’s design was inspired by Dunlop’s popular D908RR Rally Raid, a tire designed for aggressive adventure and cross-country conditions. The unmistakable block design on the D908RR tread is a key part of the Trailmax Raid’s tread design. The Raid utilizes tie-bars between the tread blocks to improve handling and stability for heavier bikes, while grip at higher lean angles when riding on the road is ensured by smaller gaps between the shoulder blocks. The large center blocks on the rear tire are designed to cope with road riding and the high-power output of adventure motorcycles.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

As temperatures are hitting 105-degrees this weekend, I relish winter riding in So Cal. This is Texas Canyon, 1982. For a short while I raced a big Maico 490 Alpha E in local enduros. I really wanted to love this bike, but it was a handful for me, both heavy and heavy handed power wise.
