This new head casting with superior
valve seats is made by Cylinder Works.
We can’t wait until they are available
Does this look like a $129 helmet? It is,
and if you like solid colors, it is a mere
$100! This is a super-light, full-featured
helmet for the price.
CYLINDER WORKS FOUR-STROKE
Chalk this one up to not good news
for ATV riders yet. Cylinder Works
announced it is developing complete
cylinder heads for popular models.
It started with several editions of
Honda CRF250R and KX250F heads.
The bare heads are cheaper than
stock heads, and they come ready
to assemble with better valve seat
material than stock. As it adds other
models to the line, there will most
likely be options for the TRX450R
and the YFZ450. Keep an eye on
Dirt Wheels and Cylinder-Works.com
for other developments and applications.
; Despite being get-out-and-ride
guys, our staff has other duties that
don’t require getting dirty. Attending
trade shows is one of those duties.
Trade shows can be bad when there
is nothing new to look at, or they
can be great if there are interesting products to see. We attended
the Motorcycle Industry Council’s
American International Motorcycle
Expo (AIMExpo) in Orlando, and it
was a good one. We found a variety
of interesting products from companies that we were familiar with and
also ones we had never heard of.
Here are just some of the cool things
FLOE CARGO MAX XRT TRAILERS
One of the most impressive products
we saw at the AIMExpo was the Floe
Cargo Max XRT trailer line. These
U.S.-made aluminum and plastic trailers never need paint, and they should
last a good, long time. While they are
designed for ATV and UTV transport,
all four different sizes are easily pulled
by most 4x4 quads and UTVs, since
the lightest is 290 pounds ready to
roll, and the heaviest is a mere 570
pounds. The unique haulers come in 8
feet with a cargo box 57 inches wide,
and in 9.5-, 11- and 13-feet cargo areas
that are 73 inches wide. The smallest model has an 1800-pound cargo
COOL NEW STUFF
Checking out the AIMExpo
YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
By the staff of Dirt Wheels
These light and compact trailers are
easy to load with off-road toys, and they
are light enough to be towed by almost
capacity, and the three larger units
are all rated to carry 2200 pounds. The
trailers have ramp gates, and you can
choose whether to use the bed teeter-totters to make loading easy.
With weights this low, there are
very few vehicles that cannot tow
these. The smallest is $1,659, and the
three larger units range from $2,695 to
$2,995. Each trailer features multiple
tie-down points. Unlike other equipment or utility trailers, these trailers
have a multitude of effective work
uses. For more information, go to
VEMAR HELMETS TAKU OFF-ROAD
Motonation was showing off the
new Vemar Taku off-road helmet at
the MIC AIMExpo. This new choice
from Vemar is sure to be a hit. The
helmet is loaded with features, has
crisp European styling and is remarkably light at 1300 grams ( 2. 8 pounds).
With graphics like this the helmet
is $129, but in solid colors it runs a
mere $99! That is a great price for a
light, comfortable and stylish helmet.
It isn’t up on the Motonation website
( www.motonation.com) yet, but it
should be soon.
