MXA PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT! TWIN AIR RADIATOR SLEEVES

ta_radiator_sleeve50
WHAT IS IT? Twin Air radiator sleeves are used to keep mud and debris from blocking much-needed air to your bike’s radiators.Back in the golden oldie days, when two-strokes roamed the earth at will, savvy two-stroke riders would attach a section of wire mesh across the downtubes of their bikes to knock down mud before it could clog the fins of their air-cooled engines. The mud would stick to the wire mesh and then vibrate off. Twin Air obviously has some old moto soldiers in its design department, because that is exactly what $44.95 Twin Air radiator sleeves do—except for radiators instead of cylinder fins.

Mounting. The Twin Air radiator sleeves are easy to mount. Remove the four bolts from the radiator louvers and slide the Twin Air sleeves over the louvers. Make sure to align the pre-punched holes in the sleeves with the stock bolt holes before reinstalling the louvers. Once all the bolts and sleeves are in place, tighten the louver bolts.ta_radsleevecu50Performance. The radiator sleeves did not disappoint. They held up well under all the conditions we threw at them. Not only did they help keep debris and mud out of the radiators, they also made for easy cleanup at the races. There was no need to pick at the radiator louvers or scrape for mud, which could potentially damage the radiator fins. After long test days our radiator fins were in great shape.

On a side note, if you own a 2017 Honda CRF450 and race, you should invest in Twin Air radiator sleeves, because we destroyed both CRF450 radiators when roost went past the widely spaced Honda radiator guard louvers and closed off the finning. After we replaced both radiators, we added the Twin Air sleeves. If you own a 2017-2018 Honda CRF450, you need to run these sleeves. Honda claims to have fixed their radiator guards for 2019.

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 silencer look as good as it performs. It brings back memories of Ricky Johnson in his Team Honda days.

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
