Is this factory enough for you? Pay no attention to the stress marks on my factory fenders. Photo

Some solid anti-factory pit bits material going on here.

This reminds me I need to pickup some gold spray paint for my chain.

Oh god, those things are awful. They trap grit and keep it in one spot so you just wear groves in your stanchions. Then they soak/hold up the oil so you can’t tell your seals are trashed. If only the OEMs would put some kind of second seal on the fork to wipe away the dust and mud from packing into your main seals, we wouldn’t have to worry about shock Sox.

Lol who makes those? Didn’t Pastrana have some yellow ones in the early 2000’s?

first step is to not check the torque on your sprocket bolts regularly. factory technicians take their jobs very seriously, they would never be caught with a sprocket bolt shy of the proper tolerance. if you want to appear "un-factory", there's no better way.

Yep. Couple people made them. Pastrana was on Michelin tires, Pirelli made them for their riders a few years ago and the first pic I posted are Innova tires.

^^^ Home made two wheel drive? I think that would be considered making your bike factory.

Good call. I completely forget about the Pirelli stuff a few years back. Kind of cool looking on some bikes.

Man, if you do that you'll get one of these draped over your swingarm after a race.. put there mysteriously by the AMA commissioning body...

I tried them carbon fork wraps once, dirt gets behind them and wears the anodizing off the other tubes quicker than roost

Did you seal the edges with tape or you just slid them in place?

Carnage and chaos. I wouldn't be surprised to hear there were serious injuries or even deaths involved. Hell, the one Mav posted - where's the missing piece of that sprocket - someone's neck? I guarantee you neither rider reads here at Vital.

FMF pipe, Pro Circuit silencer and Bill’s Pipes stickers in several places on the bike...

I run dice valve stem caps to make my bike non factory.

Black plastic, with a lot of random decals and for sure some Metal Mulisha decals.

Maybe they lurk around and if they do I'd encourage them to sign up and tell their stories. Assuming they're alive and well lol.

Lesson, torque your sprocket bolts or it'll cost you an arm and a leg (pun intended).
