In case you missed it, we’ve been featuring a running list of MXA’s top ten most-viewed videos. It’s interesting to see which videos caught traction among our viewers. We won’t reveal the number one video until December 31st, which leads to the New Year and the release of our exclusive video with Adam Cianciarulo. The footage was shot before a shoulder injury knocked the Monster Pro Circuit Kawasaki rider out of the Supercross series. Until the unveiling of the AC video, be sure to check the website daily for a growing collective of great videos.

2015 RED BULL KTM FACTORY TEAM PRESENTATION

TRICK PARTS ON MXA’S CHRISTMAS LIST

_2153161We found these WP air forks on Andrew Short’s KTM practice bike a few weeks ago.

_2153158The wrecking can’t wait to get their hands on the WP air shock.

_2152519This carbon fiber subframe is on all the Husqvarna Factory race bikes. As of right now it is not for sale, but hopefully for 2015 we will be able to test one.

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 2.15.54 PMThink Technologies recently came out with foam that goes under the fenders so dirt does not stick underneath.

IMG_5259Here is a YZ250F with an aluminum gas tank and a trick shock we have never seen before. Maybe KYB will make something like this in the future.

IMG_4463In Latvia, for the Motocross Des Nations the Factory Kawasaki team had trick carbon fiber gas tanks with an low-profile aluminum gas cap.

IMG_0223Fox Factory is coming out with really trick suspension for KTM 85’s.

_MG_6064This be very trick gas tank? Multi-color, anodized, red gas cap. We assume it is aluminum, but this is a works bike from Honda of Japan so it could be unobtainium.

_MG_5780Here are some spy shots of Bridgestone testing some new tread patterns.

_MG_5629It is hard to see, but the shock spring is candy apple red. Also, you can see that there is a carbon fiber subframe on this Suzuki RM-Z450.

_MG_5625This is one of the coolest shock bodies we have ever seen. Showa is testing some trick stuff that will hopefully make the showroom floor in the future.
