"If you can rebuild your own shock, this seal is way better than spending to much on extra OEM parts you dont need. Even during the dryer seasons of the year mud is always part of our rides. This seal hasnt shown any signs of failure. Very happy"
"We purchased a 450x that had not been properly maintained and needed most of the fasteners cleaned or replaced. This kit made switching real easy and a huge time savings. We were able to keep some of the old bolts, nuts and washers as spares in the kit box. The kit only has the most commonly used hardware plus some extra stuff that may go bad from one change. Anything specialized has to be ordered separately. Definitely worth the money in time savings alone."

"yz250f. The crank measured true within one thousandth before installation. Bearings installed nice and the bike runs very smooth. The bike has about 20hrs of riding with no crank or rod issues and no weird looking oil at changes. If the crank continues to operate this good for a reasonable period of time I would definitely buy another."
As an industry leader, JD Jet Kits are a sure way to fine tune the performance of your motorcycle or ATV carburetor. Being field tested from sea level to 12,000 feet and put through stringent dyno testing, the JD jet kit provides an accurate way to tune your carburetor. This kit uses multi-tapered needles designed for Keihin and Mikuni carburetors that are more highly developed and fine tuned than stock parts. It is JD's prescription for the head pipe blues.
"05 crf250x with closed course mods, stock cam and exhaust: Off the bottom and thru the mid range this jet kit has brought my bike to life. Top end pull is a little better but from the bottom is where the magic happened. Dont be lazy, follow the directions and love the results."
"This fuel screw has been a great improvement. No special tools are needed to adjust mixture. Even though mixture is set by rpm, the numbers on the fuel screw are a nice addition for keeping quick adjustments simple."
The Hot Cams Valve Shim Kit is a must for any motorcycle to keep it running at full power. The Hot cams Valve Shim Kit includes 3 shims for each size ranging from 1.20 thru 3.50 in .05 increments. Hot Cams includes an labeled organizer to ensure accurate shim replacement. Note: 250CC 4-strokes use 7.48 OD shims, 400CC + 4-strokes use 9.48 OD shims, and KTM's use 10 or 8.9 OD shims.
"The convenience of this product cant be under stated. No more getting the valves "close enough" because the dealer doesnt stock parts and an internet company wont have parts to my door by the next ride. All the 250's in our group can be adjusted from the same kit. The only thing that would make this kit better would be half size shims but that would drive up the price. If you own a four stroke and dont have a shims kit, your wasting more money in time than the cost of the kit."
Acerbis offers their chain guide at a reasonable price with the quality Acerbis is known for. The Acerbis chain guide is built to OEM specifications to ensure an accurate fit. Note: the Acerbis chain guide only includes the inside block.
"Some of the reviews I read made this chain guide seem weak. Based on price and time frame (cheap and we race in 5 days) I bought anyway. Worst case: I buy something better after the race and dont look back. Truth is I like the product so far. It has remained reasonably resistant to wear and durable when the chain guide got bent and repositioned. At this point I would buy another. To be fair, I am good about staying on chain maintenance. This may be the difference between the long and short life spans other have experienced with this chain guide."
Excel wheels are a standard of motorcycle excellence, and their spokes are built to withstand the rigors of aggressive riding and racing. Excel spokes include a set of highly polished 302 stainless spokes with an average tensile strength 10% higher than stock spokes. Excel spokes are constructed with 6-point Spline-drive nipples for maximum strength and durability. Excel Spokes include a spoke wrench for easy and complete installation. Note: The Excel spoke and nipple kit will work with Excel rims and some O.E.M. rims and is ONLY compatible with O.E.M. hubs.
"I didnt pay close attention when I purchased the spoke kit: I thought i was getting a normal set of spokes applicable to my needs. When I built my wheel I was really pleased with the improvements over regular spokes. They were easy to lace and durable when flexing into the rim holes. The splined nipples and corresponding wrench are the best idea since the wheel was invented! Buy these."
