Decades of staying ahead of the competition

Frontman Dan Fisher (standing far

most of which are off-road enthusiasts.
LSR is one of the largest non-OEM
employers in the ATV industry.
One of LSR’s first products was a
bearing carrier for the Honda 250R to
go along with their popular Axcaliber
axles. LSR still builds hundreds of carriers at a time that help keep old and
new sport quads rolling smooth.
❏ We like to do business with companies that have history in the sport. Too
often companies are here one day
then gone tomorrow. That is far from
the truth for Lonestar Racing (LSR),
which has spent a good amount of
time building quality ATV and UTV
components for off-road enthusiasts.
Back in 1994, Lonestar Racing got
its start building the much-needed
components to keep Honda 250Rs
competitive on the racing circuit. If
it weren’t for aftermarket companies
like LSR, the world of sport ATV may
have vanished. In those early years,
LSR was well known for everything
from axles and bearing carriers to
full-built chassis for desert, MX and
TT racers. Throughout the 1990s,
LSR’s top racer was the very fast
Keith Little. In TT racing, Little raced a
very exotic titanium chassis fabricat-
ed in the LSR shop.
These days, the Phoenix, Arizona,
shop still turns out a large amount of
ATV components, such as nerf bars,
exhaust systems and axles to complete MX and sand-drag builds. In
fact, in the shop we saw a 450cc
Honda dirt bike -powered quad and
a completely stretched quad being
outfitted with a huge electric motor.
No doubt we will be featuring that
machine in the future.
Other ATV components LSR moves
quickly are Raptor 250 frames, A-arm
kits for modern 450s, and 250R and
