I'm 23 and wear one, I've tried without and it feels as sketchy as riding without a helmet. It covers the vital area between the bottom of your chest protector and waistline. Take a bar to the gut without a kidney belt on and you're in trouble.

Take that overly engineered crank breather plumbing off and replace it with a single tube from the crank breather outlet to the rear of the engine. You will need to buy some tube from somewhere but it wont cost a lot. Route the tube under the intake, ... more »

Awesome! I ride regular loamy/sandy motocross tracks here in the UK. Very, very rarely get punctures so I'd love to give this ago. As you said, potential 2lbs saving for very little money. What size are you running? 26" x 3.5 - 4.8 both front and rear?
Thanks for your help

Agreed, multiple subforums isnt good, but I dont think one subforum for Project Builds in the Race Shop will cause Vital MX to suffer a similar fate as MX Trax

I have a wheel set with Talon hubs (billet aluminium) and Excell rims. The hubs are good quality and solid, but are noticeably heavier than stock so if weight is a concern you may want to avoid them. Pretty sure Talon make the carbon hubs for ... more »

Very easy to drop weight of an RMZ... crank breather mod, remove guards and cut off rear disc and caliper guard mounts, change all the suitable botls to aluminium (stock bolts are way too burly) are the first cheap an easy mods. Change the pipe (which ... more »
