  1. Any opinion regarding KR451?
  2. Nope I am still hunting for it...
  3. What relates to longevity I think it depends on where they are produced. I heard that Michelin produced some models of race tires by order from Dunlop, and feedback's from teams wasn't good. Now production is back in UK, but who knows. KR106 I own is made France...
  4. To my opinion way better than Michelin. I was able to take corners much more leaner, and even if front started to slide it was very smoothly so that it don't surprise you. To my opinion Mischelin sliding starts like trigger, it keeps keeps keeeps and then you are down or at least completely out of trajectory. What else interesting that on touch with fingers Dunlop rubber feels like old woody rubber, but it keeps well on tarmac.
  5. What compound for KR you use? PS: 106 grip is brilliant, I used it for last couple practices at last season. First was at about +25 C other one at ~+7C.
  6. Yehh, as they are completely racing tires to have them is very difficult. I waited to have my rear KR108 more than year and still haven't it. As much I know only way to have from racing teams who selling out their non spent season stocks.

    To my opinion I am seeing three things. One of them positive and it means cooler look. Other one’s negative only. First negative - even if you'll solve all clearance issues the gap between tire edge and swing-arm inner face became so thin that every rubber overlay from race track will start to stucking wheel. This is just example of season last race when one of TM racer faced with such problem. We all were curious, stucking was so significant that you even cant spin wheel by pushing a bike forward. Other negative - Tire size is a problem. All knows that cross section profile of the tire is the key of speed at corners. To be on right profile you'll have to go with one step up wider tire and you'll face with a first problem.

  12. 2013 CRF450R supermoto conversion

    Thanks! I will have to snap some pics in the sun for you! Regarding news, well the new bike is a blast. Handling-wise it is a bit similar to the 2008 model in the sense that it likes to turn in the same fashion - easy to get it bite into the corner and even easier to grind the footpegs against the asphalt to generate sparks. Power-wise this is something unseen from the red team. The engine is completely worked over and will now deliver the performance in stock that other bikes did with heavy mods. The low rpm power is good, midrange is crazy and high rpm is impressive. Overall I think it's a killer bike for supermoto.

    Hey mate! The CDI is a piece of American hardware called PE3-SP000. It is fully programmable and has nothing in common with the stock map in Keihin CDI. It has been a great learning experience to map it and now with the new exhaust header I am going to have to re-map it all over again. It now wants more fuel down low, even at idle speed. But once it is done, this setup should be a killer.

    Hey guys! Check out some of the upgrades that have been done to this bike recently. A couple of years ago it was taken to a dyno and delivered 60 hp to the wheel. At only 8000 RPM... This seemed a bit off for the given setup so I started to look for the "missing power". What I discovered - if any of you are using the AIR4ORCE short runner, go back to stock airboot. As soon as I did, it picked up loads and loads of power up top. I also designed and built an experimental header design to put emphasis on mid and top range. After all that, the injector started to max out so now this bad boy is running staged injectors! Slide-show below!
  15. Safety Guards

    As I am not a youngster anymore any track trauma remain three times longer than before. Some safety guards are definitely necessary more than before but from other side I don't like be as RoboCop with restricted movements. So I would be glad to hear your opinion about ORTEMA products. How good they are, how safely they absorbs impacts and so on. At the moment I am looking at X-pants, GP5 knee guards and GP3 elbow guards. What you can suggest.
