It was done by a company in Japan. you can translate their page if you want. http://www.technix.jp/ but MX-tech in the states is the same company. Like i said i got a really good deal otherwise i would not have done the coatings. These parts are from ... more »

Kawi has a "DLC type coating" it's not the same quality as what suspension companies put on stuff. But probably still better than just chrome.

I had my stuff done in Japan, I sold another bike and decided to use that money for my new bike suspension. suspension has about 40 hours on it, but the fork tubes were still in good enough shape that they could apply the DLC. I had everything done.

I'm moving back to the states next year and this is my biggest fear, getting my bike stolen. What does the insurance cover on your bike? just the KBB? or can you also get other stuff covered.. Thats gotta be one shitty feeling to have your bike stolen.. ... more »

Yup Japan is pretty sweet. I live in northern Japan There are 5 main tracks within 2 hours. 2 are 30 minutes away. Most you pay to ride is $10-15 if they even collect. And there is also a beach you can rip up and down on. Although it was better before ... more »

I am pretty sure they are open for riding everyday, Communication was kind of difficult when i was there since my Japanese is horrible.. As far as getting there it's kind of off the grid so i don't think public trans is gonna be easy. It only takes a ... more »

Guess i should have left fukushima out of it.. The track is not in any danger. Its still far away from the craziness.

Not sure what your transportation will be like, but there is a track in Iwaki, that rents bikes. Its about a 2-3 hour drive from Tokyo. Tracks name is Shidoki. Not sure if any other tracks rent bikes. Rode there earlier this year was a pretty good time.. ... more »

Never used decal works. But moto seat was awesome.. So was Factory FX. Dont think u can go wrong with any of those companies.

Reply to Setting bike up for taller rider 7/28/2015 4:03 AM

I can only assume since you're taller you have larger feet as well. There are a lot of options for longer shifters and brake pedals to fit your feet better.

Reply to Setting bike up for taller rider 7/27/2015 2:33 PM

hope u like that set up. i was running those bars for a while then added the pegs. wish i did the pegs a long time ago.

Reply to Setting bike up for taller rider 7/27/2015 7:29 AM

I run Renthal RC high bars. and fastway pegs in the lowboy config. both those made a huge difference.

my upgrade was to the core exp.. It takes a little bit more to set up because there is an adjuster on the pressure plate, after u break the clutch in you have to pull your cover and check it again. But after that, once it's set your golden like a shower.. ... more »

Reply to Rekluse clutch and deep sand 7/24/2015 3:05 PM

Rekluse is awesome.. i had the 2.0 and upgraded to the 3.0 in my '14YZ450, honestly can't tell the difference. but if you are going to be an sand more the Core EXP may be the way to go. holds more oil and has better cooling. if your rekluse feels like ... more »

Webb rode the 450 last year at the japan nationals. He was killing it, when i talked to him he said the bike was great, just had to get used to the power. Hope they both stay yamaha. Who knows.
