Can-Am DS450 Build from Troy Barker

Summary: This build has been my pride and joy in racing and could not be happier with how it turned out. My BCS Performance powered "shorty" race motor is wrapped around my custom billet aluminum frame rails. The slick Tiger Racing bomber hood matches perfect with my Solid Offroad Design graphics. I'm running the Goldspeed/GBC Motorsports wheel/tire combo again for the third year straight now and has proven success for me. I can't thank my dad enough for helping me with the long nights and all my sponsors for the support for this season. My first race of the year … Read more

Honda TRX450R Build from Ryan Waldo

Summary:

This bike was built for use in the Quad X Pro Class and WORCS Pro-Am and Production A classes. Nothing was left untouched and the attention to detail on the bike is crazy. My dad Bob Waldo put the most time in on the build and I cannot thank him enough for all that he does for my racing. The motor was left mild for the reliability needed in the hour and a half WORCS races and Rob Golden builds the best motor I have ever ridden hands down so I’d like to thank him as well. The components on this bike are courtesy of my awesome sponsors and are the best in the industry. Thank you to everyone involved and I can’t wait to get this thing dirty!

2015 Sponsors: Mom & Dad, Pit Traffic, Lonestar Racing, Maxxis Tires, Moose Racing, Golden Motorsports, Spider Graphix, Goldspeed, Sunstar, Just 1 Helmets, Elka Suspension, Powermadd, Maxima Oils, Uni, Fasst Co, AME Grips, Hinson, Dasa Racing, Fourwerx Carbon, EKS Brand Goggles, Galfer, Rynopower, IMS, Moto Hose, Atlas Brace, VGR

KTM 450 sx Build from Jesse Milbrath

Jesse Milbrath made the switch from Suzuki to KTM for last year and heads into 2015 on his mean orange machine. Jesse tells us a little bit about his ride here. Stay tuned for an interview with Jesse next week, where he tells us about his plans for 2015.

Summary: I built this bike strictly for motocross. The performance end of this bike is unreal, its a monster! I love everything about it! Most of the wrench turning is between my dad, brother, and me. Occasionally I will call other experts for help like Rich Moore or Casey Streepy.

2014 Yamaha YFZ450R

Borrowed from Yamaha-Motor.com

Check out the release video! Assembled in the USA (Georgia) the new YFZR features some cool redesigned features and some ready-to-race components (including Maxxis tires right out of the box 21s and 20s). It comes in a standard Yamaha blue and white color scheme which looks pretty nice and a badass orange version!

Some highlights of the new Yamaha, besides the new color scheme, include a new slipper clutch;  titatium 5-valve cylinder, newly design exhaust, and new cam profiles; new ECU and diagnostic tool; redesigned ergonomics – though they look at lot similar; and several more features.

Take a lap with Yamaha’s Dustin Nelson

QuadX released this video of Dustin Nelson at the opener at Glen Helen and it’s pretty cool. We usually don’t care for the GoPro mounted to the helmet look (it’s so small, get creative!) but this shows you how rough the track was for these guys. They’ve got to work hard for their entire moto. No slacking off here! Check it out, then check out the walk around of Dustin’s Yamaha. Pretty cool stuff! We wished our YFZR was that cool!

Honda Hybrid Build from Zoe Kimball/Andy Yarrington

Summary: My daughter Zoe Kimball is the racer, I’m just the dad-mechanic. The quad is currently set up for flattrack/tt racing. This quad performs really well – we have to thank Frank Jahner of Jahner Racing Engines for all his work, and Crank Werks/Pro rods. The motor’s very fast. Set up wasn’t too hard. JB Mod chassis are one of the best out there, and it handles very very good. It can run with most 450s on the tracks around Washington. Also like to thank 911 Motorsports for their performance parts and help, also Enumclaw Powersports for their support. We … Read more

Honda TRX450R Build from Team Quad75Dezert

Summary: Over the course of several years we’ve refined and reexamined our quad, making changes to parts, making parts themselves, and using only the parts we know can hold up to the abuses we put them through. We have learned a lot and each time we go racing we learn a little more. We might never get the “perfect” machine because we’re always improving, but it certainly feels like the best bike on the planet when we are racing it. 2005 Honda TRX450R Motor built by: S&S Motorsports Cylinder/Head: Stock/S&S Bore/Stroke: Stock/Stock Cam: Piston: Wiseco Displacement: 450cc Carb: FCR Air … Read more
