EBC is a company that does not replicate a clutch kit, they make it better and that is exactly what they have done with the DRC Dirt Racer Clutch Kit. The EBC Clutch Kit fiber plates have been impregnated with aluminum particles that reduces swelling, provides heat resistance and makes for a longer lasting clutch kit. The fiber plates in the EBC Dirt Racer clutch kit have modified flanges that reduce "dogging" from the clutch basket. To further improve clutch kit performance, EBC stiffened the clutch springs by 15%. Stiffer clutch kit springs ensure better contact between the clutch plates to reduce wear. The EBC DRC Dirt Racer Clutch Kit was designed as a direct OEM replacement.
"I have just pulled my entire clutch basket assembly for an inspection, and to repair my badly worn outer clutch basket. I have put approx. 15-20 HARD MX track hours on this clutch so far and have not noticed any extensive wear. I'm sorry that I wasn't able to put a caliper to the friction plate to give a factual statement. My only gripe is the price. For some reason clutch plate prices have gone up, and it's quite disappointing, especially since I see few or no other clutch choices for my 2006 CFR250R on this site at the current time."
Jacket is made of stretch material with breathable mesh inserts and features shoulder and elbow protection. Protection features plastic and PE foam (EN1621-1 approved). Elastic on chest with adjustable hook-and-loop closure. Lower portion of sleeves are removable. Elbow protections are adjustable with elastic straps. Neck brace compatible.
"I specifically bought this equipment so that I can wear the chest protector without the arm pads if I so choose, and for the removable chest piece to allow for my Bionic Neck Brace to fit more properly. My Bionic Neck Brace doesn't fit perfectly because even though the back plastic is recessed for a neck brace, my brace rides a little high in the back of the head area, yet the shoulder area of the neck brace still sits in contact with my trap muscle area; however, I still feel very comfortable with my neck brace on. I have ridden most of the summer with this equipment on twice a week at my local outdoor mx track. I was willing to accept the logical aspect that I will be warmer than the typically protected rider, and was able to ride confident and comfortably while remembering to stay fully hydrated. I'm very satisfied with the quality and comfort of this product, and feel that it will protect me better in the event of a crash."

"I have ridden with these knee braces for two months. I ride a CRF250R on a MX outdoor track at least twice a week. They fit comfortably, go on fairly easily, and the rigidity of the bracing components themselves still seem as strong as when I bought them. I would have rated a 4 instead of a 5 because I have not snagged my foot in a rut, crashed, or had any other reason to twist my leg to test the design of the boot attachment. This is a very quality product that takes a few more moments to put on versus other velcro braces, but I feel is far superior to the ladder. The knee sock that came with the brace ripped. Asterisk took care of the problem with a simple receipt of sale from Motosport.com"

2011 EVS Vision Knee Braces
Set your sights on riding hard and safe with the EVS Vision knee brace that offers the same protection of the high dollar braces without the high dollar price. The EVS Vision knee braces mimic the natural flexion and extension movements of the knee with the anatomically correct aluminum dual pivot hinge. The efficient hinges in the Vision knee braces keep bilateral movement in check while also offering hyperextension control. EVS adds impact protection with the floating knee cup and in the thighs and shins. Sharkskin neoprene lines the Vision knee braces to keep the brace in position while providing exceptional comfort. One strap at the calf and one at the thigh hold the Vision knee brace firmly in place without obstructing movement or boot fitment. Sold as a pair.

"These where well constructed braces, and seemed quite durable. I rode with them once, and decided not to keep them because they felt bulky. This was my first pair of knee braces. I am returning them and will try the next step up in price to see what that will get me. I measured perfectly, and purchased the exact size according to the EVS sizing chart. Though they felt loose without my riding pants on, the rubberized insides kept the brace snug on my knee when I put my pants over them. I think they are a good pair if you are on a budget, however I am not so I will go to what I may find 'the next best thing'. I had no problems with movement, except that they felt bulky, and did not fit under my pants well and I didn't feel like buying a larger set of riding pants to solve that problem. They are sturdy braces once under your pants. Hope this review helps."

"The wrench end worked perfectly on my 2006 CRF250R, if you want to unscrew the top of the fork dampener cap out, the rectangle slot on the tool was not big enough. I spent 10 minutes filing it out so that I could use it, which in hind site was pretty dumb because a set of channel locks worked just as good, if not better."
