48mm lowers are steel tubes with DLC, the 52s are aluminum and have never been DLC coated...I don’t believe DLC will adhere to aluminum properly. Also the Husky team has been on Neken clamps for a few years now.

Technically a CRF250RX doesn't exist but I rode a CRF250R that had been built into what would basically be a CRF250RX. It was actually a project done up by EnduroLyfe (IG page) but I will do a write up on it in a couple weeks. I made a post on my personal ... more »

The technology isn't ready yet. The crew from Alpinestars told me it took ten years of collecting data from MotoGP, World Superbike, and events all over the world to develop the working prototypes...let alone the years since then getting it ready for ... more »

Those "80-something parts" (it was actually more than that) was in 2016 (15 when it came out)...those engine changes made for less than a half a horsepower difference at best... Just pointing that part out...yes, it's way behind in the power department ... more »

A sand dune is the product of a wind storm...always expect a drop on the backide of a uphill, don't ride straight off them, roll them at an angle. Don't be like Seth Enslow...

Sounds like we won’t be shooting bikes at either track in the end future. One magazine tried shooting a new bike at Milestone today and supposedly we’re not allowed to anymore.
