AUGUST2014COVERThe August 2014 cover of MXA has a sweet photo of the 2015 KTM 450SXF on it. Inside are breakdowns of all the changes to the YZ450F, YZ250F, YZ250, YZ125, RM-Z250, RM-Z450 and KTM 125SX, 150SX, 250SX, 250SXF, 450SXF and 350SXF.


AUG 2014 GLEN HELEN“When Pigs Fly” is Jody’s take on how the AMA National came back to Glen Helen this year. You might be surprised to learn all the details, plus Jody’s unique way of looking at the biggest National of the year.


AUG 2014 GLEN HELEN TRACK Have you ever wanted to build an AMA National racetrack? Before you take on the job, learn what is entailed from a man who worked on the Escape Country National, Saddleback National, Glen Helen National (15 times), plus two Grand Prix tracks. It’s not a glamorous job.


AUG 2014 SCALVINI TWINMXA tests the wildest and most expensive CRF450 exhaust system ever made. The Scalvini cone pipe isn’t your father’s twin exhaust.


AUG 2014 KTM 125 PROJECTThis a MXA’ project KTM 125SX two-stroke. It was built for MXA’s Daryl Ecklund to race at the World Two-Stroke Championships, but Daryl got hurt a week before the race (and he wouldn’t let us race it). But, he did let us test it.



AUG 2014 BUD LINKThe latest trick in holeshot devices is to lower the rear of the bike as well as the front. This Bud Racing HSL link brings the rear down as much as 130mm.


AUG 2014 YZ270Hey, if a 250cc Yamaha YZ250 is fast, how about a 270cc version. You’ll be surprised to learn the outcome — even more surprising is how we turned a $650 project into a $4000 dream bike without realizing it.


AUG 2014 CLASSIC OSSAThe 1974 Ossa Phantom was one of the prettiest production bikes ever made. Every piece was a work of art.


AUG 2014 SUPERCROSS 2The 2014 Supercross season is over, but we will be talking about the stats, history and memories for years to come. Here is your chance to get a headstart on history.


AUG 2014 GAERNE SG12It’s no secret that one of the most durable and longest lasting boots made is the Gaerne SG12. We analyze all of its other features for you.


AUG 2014 CHEAP SEATSAlthough the MXA guys are used to being pampered in the pits at a Supercross, MXA’s John Basher left the comfy confines of the inner sanctum to spend the night mixing with the masses. He came back at night’s end to tell us how great it was, but we had already taken the limo home.


AUG 2014 DUNLOP MX32No one is as touchy about front tires than the MXA wrecking crew. Once we find a favorite we stick with it, no matter what rear tire we have mounted. Unfortunately, most of our favorite front tires, like the Dunlop 756 and Dunlop MX31, keep getting discontinued. So, we are on the search for a new favorite. We start the search with the Dunlop MX32.


AUG 2014 MIKE BROWN FC350How brave are you? We not only tested Mike Brown’s 2014 Husqvarna FE350 (although it really isn’t an FE), but we tested it on a true-to-life Endurocross course. We don’t mind doubles as much as we are scared of wet logs and pointy rocks, but we persevered.


AUG 2014 MXPERTSWhere do you learn all of the ins and outs of modern motorcycles? We know where you don’t learn about them—which is why MXA spends a considerable amount of time explaining how things work. Got a question? Ask the MXperts.
