TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT | GARY PHILLIPS 2011 YAMAHA YZ144

“This is my 2011 YZ144. I has an updated feels with a retro touch. A restyled kit was used but I made the front fender, graphics and front number plate based off a 1984 YZ125. I striped the bike to the frame and replaced and rebuilt every seal, bearing, gasket to wheels.” –Gary Phillips.

WHAT THE MXA WRECKING CREW IS UP TO 

2019 RM-Z250 RPO CIRCUIT PROJECT BIKEPro Circuit built us a fire breathing 2019 RM-Z250 to test. It produces much of its power down low making the riders have to short shift to stay in its sweet spot. Pro Circuit gained six horsepower and three foot pounds of torque from stock. Check out the full test in a future issue of MXA.

2020 Husqvarna FC250After three hours into our 2020 Husqvarna FC250 test the WP rear shock blew out. We had the same issue happen on last year’s KTM 250SX WP shock with minimal time. Last year WP said debris got in the shock somehow. We imagine the same thing happened on our FC250. Still waiting on the results back from WP. When the shock gave out it about sent MXA Managing Editor Daryl Ecklund over the bars coming down Glen Helen’s Mt. Saint Helens when he hit a braking bump. When a shock blows out it loses all its rebound and feels like a pogo stick.
