Hammer Tested: Tag Metals Handle Bar & Grips

Hammer Tested: Tag Metals Handle Bar & Grips

Hammer Tested: No Toil Air Filter

Hammer Tested: No Toil Air Filter

I know you have heard it a hundred times, but its true dirt will reduce the life of your engine and increase your repair cost over the life of the bike.

Hammer Tested: Moose Racing Flex Handguards

Are you a converted woods rider to motocross? I’ll admit that I had no use for MX tracks until last year, I got hooked, and have been trying to hone my skills ever since. Of course I wanted to look the part right? First thing was to get rid of those wrap around aluminum hand guards as they are bulky […]

Hammer Tested: SDG Complete Seat

The SDG complete seat will help finish the look of any bike. It has improved the feel and look of my old YZ250.

Is your bike looking and feeling a little tired? Each time you sit on your machine does it feel like you’re sitting on the sub frame rails? Why try to replace the seat cover and foam when you can get a complete seat for around the same price with zero frustration? If you are asking yourself these same questions, then restore that […]
