I do really love the new Kawi 450. It is such a great bike for me and my size. I race so i want the bike that is going to get me around the track fastest. For me....the kawi 450 does that. Forks are unreal

Look how far down the list "getting a bike for chad to practice on" wound up.

It's very bike-dependent. Honda's, for example, have crappy chains that i replace immediately. Yamaha/ KTM...stock chains are good. Pick a bike and we will go over what it needs! 1) Handlebars 2) set ergos up (ie taller seat for me) 3) aluminum throttle ... more »

Pick one of these: Alpinestar, fly, Bell, 6D, TLD. I’ve been knocked out too easily in Arai imo. The styofoam in the shell is not enough. The shell is too stiff.

How do you like the Hinson BTL?

It’s like this: We all like Chad Reed. We want him to do well because he’s the old guy and most of us have an extreme passion for this great sport. It disappoints us when we see that he is not training the way he needs to train in order to be competitive. ... more »

Have you tried the Lyrica? It worked well for my nerve pain

The heel is like an egg shell. Once it cracks....all the fluid and cushioning between the bones displaces. The recovery didn’t include a ton of rehab. It kind of is what it is. It hurts to walk so i have to manage the pain by being efficient woth my ... more »

Broken heel has been the most life changing. I limp. The broken wrist was pretty bad. I love riding though......

i consider the chain roller, brake pads, grips, chain as high wear items. The chain roller lasted around 12 hours.

I feel safest in the Troy Lee TL4. Not a ton of new technology but more foam between your head and the shell. Super light.

The kawi is my all time favorite bike as far as rideability goes. It's awesome once you take care of a few things. Put the Rekluse Torq-drive system in the bike for $350 and the clutch becomes awesome. It turns great and the layout is perfect. The suspension ... more »

I have both the 2019 KX450 and a 2020 Yamaha YZ450F. I love both bikes. I have put 60 hours on the Kawi. Durability on the Yamaha is better. The following were issues on the Kawasaki: 1) sub-frame muffler mounting tab broke off....common problem with ... more »

Call Factory connection. Ask them questions. If you like what they say...use them. Quick turnaround, convenient packaging, and good suspension.

I like the rear brake as well. It locks up to pivot in turns easy.

The alpinestar A4 or A1.....whichever is made for roost over impact. It’s really good.
