Thanks! Moto is only part of what I do, though. A lot of my day is spent doing mundane stuff too with the engineering side of the business: https://www.luxonengineering.com/

Pretty much between any two flat spots will do the trick. Here are a couple that work well. From the front of the block to the back end of the locknut:

There's a little less friction with the DLC coating, so it turns a little smoother against the bearing and seals. It's not dramatic, but it's there. And of course dropping weight is always a performance increase. That's the main benefit of this part. ... more »

No distributors outside the USA yet, unfortunately! We do offer international shipping worldwide, though.

49mm Showa tubes are actually a couple percent less rigid than 48mm WP tubes, which is the opposite of what we would think going up in diameter. They're thinner, though, and a good deal lighter. These forks have A LOT of development in them and we'll ... more »

All of our triple clamps use the KTM style rubber cone interface, but with the stock span between bar mount posts. So that means that you can use any bar mount that fits a KTM clamp on our KTM clamps (and Husky/GasGas). Our other clamps will accept any ... more »

Yes, in the works. Design is done, we just need to get them on the machine. We'll have a full linkage assembly available. The pullrod will use a different bearing size than stock Yamaha (we'll actually use OEM KTM bearings), but that allows us to use ... more »

Just shot you an email. We've got limited stock in most everything right now and have been working like crazy to catch up. That said, we currently have KTM/Husky/GasGas clamps and bar mounts in all colors (black, clear, orange, red) except blue. Blue ... more »

Clearly I'm biased... Xtrig makes good parts of high quality, but they're heavy. If weight is an issue, you'll be about a full pound lighter with our clamps. The general consensus from those who try both is that they like ours better. For example, the ... more »

Next up is our axle blocks. These are CNC machined pieces that are hard anodized (the blocks) to resist scratches and hold up well. The nut is included and is clear anodized. This will get scratched up from crashes and the wrench, and those scratches

Yes, they're available on our website for KTM/Husky/GasGas only at the moment. More details in the next post!

A couple additions to the engine: We recently came out with oil filter covers for the Austrian bikes and they fit most of the four strokes. There’s no performance advantage, they just look nice. They also have an extended outer lip, so it’s easy to grab

Here are some miscellaneous parts I’ve added to the bike: The brake tip needs to match the foot pegs, right? Pro-Pegs just happens to make one of those! It’s titanium, just like the foot pegs and available through Motostuff.

It's a standard M8 x 1.25. Same as the bar clamp bolts.

Hear are a few in-process shots of making the ultralight linkage race. The bearing race uses a machined aluminum carrier to position and hold the actual bearing races. This starts as some US made aluminum in our lathe:

It's worth mentioning that the WP shock pictured is just temporary until the MX-Tech National shock arrives!

The linkage arm we’ll use is our “standard” adjustable length arm that we’ve had for a while now. The arm allows length adjustments from 1mm shorter to 4mm longer than stock in 1mm increments. I’m a strong believer that there’s no such thing as a “performance

I sent out the swingarm for hard anodizing in black, just like we did with the KTM 150 build. Hard ano is far more resistant to scratching than powder coat or other coatings, so it’s the clear choice. The annoying part, though, is you need to remove

It's a little bit here, there, and everywhere. No magic part removes a ton of weight; it's the sum of a whole lot of parts losing a little weight.
