I had them on my 17 250SX and they were fine, but I didn't notice any real difference in handling. If you're looking for performance, I'm loving my Ride Engineering clamps on my RM-Z!! They really put tons of testing into their products and I couldn't ... more »

The bushing should tighten things up. If not, there's another problem... Hopefully, the new bushings will fix you up!! I'd go with some Showa or Kayaba OEM (depending on what your bike is using) bushings instead of after market ones.... Good luck

It takes some special tools.... You have to drill out the 4 indentions at the top of the tube without drilling through the entire thing (drilling is to weaken the hold of the peened indention).... You need clamping blocks that hold the tube and then ... more »

​ Placed an order for a plethora of Ride Engineering parts to up the performance and add a Factory look to the RMZ...!!! Figured I'd need some things to work on when this COVID-19 kicks off the track...😷😷👀 Hope I get a chance to ride with my new Clamps and try

Finally got some decent Dyno runs in. So, this Dyno definitely has some very conservative numbers, but it's all relative and it's about showing gains and where they are at in the power band! Unfortunately, my seat of the pants testing and the ... more »

Got my Yoshi this week!! Super excited to see how it helps...!! I went with the Stainless steel/Aluminum silencer. I was wanting a more durable head pipe since I've had Ti head pipes get pretty dented up from roost.... The Al silencer is ... more »

I've had my 2019 RM-Z250 for about 6 weeks now and really like it! Power is Awesome! Plenty of low end to pull me out of the corners with a strong mid-range and I'm pretty happy with the way it revs out....!! Not quite enough power (anywhere) to keep

I raced my '03 YZ125 in the 45+ and 50+ in '17 and a 250SX last year. Did pretty good for a LL newbie!
