P3 Composites Carbon Fiber Skid Plate

Vital Review

“Tested: P3 Composites Carbon Fiber Skidplate”


When KTM released the 2015 Factory Edition bikes this spring, there were very few OEM parts available, let alone aftermarket parts. At that moment, P3 Composites grabbed the bull by the horns and made the first skid plate to fit the Factory Edition available to the public. Being one of the lucky few that had pulled the trigger on the 250SX-F FE, I wanted to protect my investment with something that matched the factory-caliber of my new ride. Thus, I ordered one of P3's carbon skidplates as soon as they cooled off and it could be shipped to my house. P3 Composites Carbon Fiber Skiplate Features: Read More »

Kali Protectives Shiva Helmet

Vital Review

“Tested: Kali Protectives Shiva Helmet”


As a brand, Kali Helmets has been around since 2008. Though they arrived a little later than most to the helmet game, they've made quite a statement with their unique in-molded construction process...or as they call it, "Composite Fusion. This not only bonds the shell and inner liner together, it eliminates gaps between the two. This reportedly increases the safety of the helmet, while also reducing the weight and size of what we've come to expect as a standard motocross helmet. Since I've had experience with Kali's mountain bike helmet line in the past, I was immediately interested when they announced their new Kali Read More »

Boyesen Supercooler Water Pump Kit

Vital Review

“Tested: Boyesen Supercooler”


You know the drill... the combustion of fuel and oxygen in our bike's engines creates power, and while this reaction propels it through a series of mechanical functions, it also creates heat. The faster you are, or the longer the motos, the higher the heat. At a certain point, the higher temperatures become the enemy when it gets to the point where it decreases power and reliability. Of course, most modern bikes are water-cooled to keep the temperatures in check, but Boyesen has tried to improve one of the most important aspects, the water pump, with their Supercooler.

Rekluse Core Exp 3.0 Clutch Kit

Vital Review

“Tested: Rekluse Two-Stroke EXP 3.0 Auto-Clutch”


One of the reasons my KLX110 is such a blast to ride, is because I can just get on and rip the throttle. There's no clutch to worry about, no stalling, and it just makes the bike that much easier and even more fun to ride. The Rekluse EXP 3.0 Clutch brings the best parts of that centrifugal clutch design to my CR250, while retaining all the familiar performance characteristics that I'm used to from my OEM clutch. I'd been hearing a ton of buzz about Rekluse's auto-clutches, while seeing more and more riders from GNCC to even Supercross and motocross running them, and swearing by them. If those guys are Read More »

Galfer SKW Oversize Front Rotor Kit

Vital Review

“Tested: Galfer SKW 270mm Front Rotor Kit”


Over the past few years, larger front brake rotors have become more popular, especially on modern 450s. An aside to this trend has been the increased frequency of floating rotors, which have taken away attention from the good ol' solid-mounted rotor. Until recently, I'll proclaim that I was dead-set on riding the floating rotor train...until I had the chance to test a couple bikes with larger solid-mounted rotors. To give this my best comparison, I grabbed a 270mm SKW solid-mounted rotor from Galfer to test on our 2015 Kawasaki KX450F, which comes stock with a 270mm floating rotor.
