MXA WEEKEND NEWS ROUND-UP: “I KNEW THAT ALREADY” ISN’T ALWAYS TRUE

ARE YOU TIRED OF WAITING FOR THE 2019 MXA 450 SHOOTOUT?

The 2019 450cc motocross line-up.

We understand that people are upset because MXA hasn’t released its 2019 450 Shootout yet. But, we have to work our way through the process in the best possible way. We can’t take a spin around a track in a day or two and tell you much more than a cursory opinion of what they feel like. We want to test them, weigh them, dyno them, race them, live with them and break them (if that’s in the cards). We could tell you right now which one makes the most horsepower—the 2019 Honda CRF450; which one has the best suspension—the 2019 Yamaha YZ450F; which one weighs the least—the 2019 KTM 450SXF; and which one feels the best over the course of one lap—the 2019 Kawasaki KX450F. But, you knew that already.

Race testing our 2019 Husqvarna FC450.

We want to tell you more, help you understand more, and give you a complete evaluation. And that encompasses a lot of important things (to us anyway). What breaks? What needs to be changed? What are the easy fixes for nagging flaws? Which brakes work and which ones don’t? How many times did we have to replace the clutch plates? Which bikes overheated quickly? How many decibels do they make? Which forks are too soft? Which shock is too harsh? Which bike has the most head shake? What a judder spring is and why we hate it? And a lot of things that we can’t learn in one day, three days or a week (especially when factory technicians are hovering over the test bikes).

Race testing our 2019 Kawasaki KX450—this time with the right side up.

And face it, there is no such thing as a shootout that makes everyone happy. That isn’t MXA’s goal, we want to test and race the bikes long enough to be able to give an accurate evaluation of what each bike does well (and, of course, what it doesn’t do well). We aren’t the least bit interested in rushing. We don’t care if we are the first shootout or the 15th, we care that we give you invaluable information that can only come from living with the bikes over several months—not several days. This is how we do it—it will be ready when it’s ready—we don’t know why you’d want it any other way.

2ND ANNUAL 32:1 PRE-MIX TWO-STROKE RACE ON SEPT. 15-16 IN HELENA, MONTANA

MXA PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT! PROTECH FULL-WRAP KTM/HUSKY/HONDA FORK GUARDS

ProTech fork guards directly replace the standard OEM guards on WP-equipped KTMs, Husqvarnas and Shercos (plus all models of Hondas). The ProTech guards offer much more protection from roost for the fork legs, and this vastly improves the chances of your fork seals lasting twice as long.

Prior to the 2015 models, KTMs and Husqvarnas came with full-wrap fork guards. This meant that instead of just protecting the chrome on your fork legs from rock damage from the front, they also guarded against rocks ricocheting off the frame and roost thrown off the trailing edge of your own front tire from the back. Why is this important? Just one stone chip to a chrome fork leg is enough to take a divot out of the plating. The edge of that divot, which resembles a volcano under a microscope, can tear the fork seal as it passes by. A torn seal will spew oil like a Texas wildcat rig. The fix? New fork seals, but only after you have buffed and polished the ding out of the fork leg. And, if the ding is too big to sand down, you will need a new fork leg.

PROTECH-FORK-GUARD-BACK-2

Prior to 2015, the MXA wrecking crew rarely had to replace WP’s SKF fork seals compared to how often we changed Showa or Kayaba seals. Why? Before 2015, WP forks came with wrap-around fork guards — after 2014 WP forks came with the same-style fork guards as Japanese bikes, and thus the seals blew at the same pace as Showa and Kayaba fork seals. Even more aggravating was the simple fact that the 2014 full-wrap fork guards would not fit on the 2015–2019 WP forks.

PROTECH-FORK-GUARDS-REAR

Luckily, a small British company went to the trouble to injection-mold full-wrap fork guards for 2015-and-up WP motocross forks. They are well made, strong and fit perfectly. Best of all the protect your fragile fork legs from rocks dings. To facilitate putting the ProTech fork guards on and off (which was a hassle on 2014 and earlier WP fork guards),  there is a 1-inch opening at the back of the guard to allow the plastic to flex enough to pop over the fork leg without having to remove the forks from the bike. The MXA test riders stick on a piece of 3M number-plate background vinyl to close the gap completely.

ProTech full-wrap fork guards are available for KTM, Husqvarna, Sherco and Honda motorcycles. They are offered in white, orange, blue, Honda red and yellow.

PROTECH-FORK-GUARDS-FRONT

DIGITS? $47.00 (They are offering free shipping world-wide)— www.protechguards.co.uk.

MXA RATING: The MXA wrecking crew loves the ProTech full-wrap fork guards. Who wouldn’t want to protect their expensive forks, tubes and seals from damage? Well played, ProTech.

BIKES YOU’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE: 1985 ANCILLOTTI 125 HIRO

Ancillotti was a highly regarded Italian brand that built bikes in 50cc, 125cc and 250cc versions. At their height, Ancillotti was building 3000 bikes a year. Ancillotti did not manufacturer their own engines, but used Minarelli, Sachs and Hiro engines. Ancillotti fell on hard times when the Japanese brands began to take over the sport—and this 1985, water-cooled, Hiro-engined, pull-shock, very Suzuk-ish model was the epitome of their development. Today, Ancillotti is still in business, but mostly the bicycle business. They tried to make a comeback in 2011 as a motorcycle manufacturer, but no Ancillottis were ever imported to the USA.

MXA PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: ONE SHOT DEAL! SPECIAL RUN OF 1986 HONDA CR250 TWO-STROKE PIPES


This is a cool idea. Pro Circuit plans to built a special limited-edition run of 1986 Honda CR250 Works Pipe and 304 silencers for bike builder and vintage racers. Just like back in the day, Pro Circuit’s Works Pipe increases horsepower and torque, while the unplated, oiled metal finish gives your bike that “works look.” Completing the special throwback kit is a 304 Factory Sound Silencer that has a slightly longer body to add top-end performance while reducing noise output. The brushed aluminum silencer body and stainless steel inlet tube and end-cap make the 1986 CR250 like it did when Ricky Johnson raced with it. Pro Circuit is accepting orders for the $425.00 1986 Honda CR250 kit now and fulfill them when they reach the required production number. Order now if you want to be included in this special offer. For more info go to www.procircuit.com

MXA AD OF THE WEEK: 1982 USGP


Tickets for the 1982 Unites States Grand Prix at Carlsbad Raceway cost $12. For that hefty chunk of cash, you got to see Brad Lakcey, Andre Malherbe, Graham Noyce, Andre Vromans, Gerrit Wolsink, Chuck Sun, Kent Howerton and Broc Glover, plus two 250 Support motos and Art Scholl’s aerobatics show. And Danny Magoo Chandler took the win

DANNY “MAGOO” CHANDLER ON WINNING THE 1982 USGP


Magoo with his goggles off in the second moto at Carlsbad.

“In 1982, Carlsbad was muddy. It had rained the night before, and I was happy about that because I knew I rode very well in the mud. I has already won some AMA Nationals that year, and I was on the big Honda works bike, so I knew I had the speed and machinery. On the day of the race, I was feeling pretty good about my chances.

“When the gate dropped for the first moto, I got a midpack start and got hammered by this big mudhole. On the first lap of the race, I had blown through all my tear-offs. I knew I had to get to the front as fast as possible if I was going to win. I was going pretty fast and made it all happen.

“In the second moto I rode like a lady. I pulled a typical Magoo and crashed. Then I got up and crashed again. I got so mad at myself for throwing away my best chance to win. Luckily, Brad Lackey got passed by Andre Vromans, and I ended up going 1-5, which was good enough for the overall win. I was really excited about that, but I was also upset that Andre Malherbe had crashed and broke his leg earlier in the day, because I had really wanted a piece of him!

“I thought Carlsbad was great. All the American fans would come and cheer us on. You could tell that the tide had changed and that the American riders were the fastest riders. Personally, I had been training and eating right to be prepared for that race and for going up against the European riders. I’d been burning five gallons of gas a day, and not just five gallons in a day, but within three hours. That was how my dad raised me—you had to burn the five gallons against the clock for it to do any good, and on that day at Carlsbad, it did me some good.”
