I need a new set of MX pants and I'm hoping to stay under $100 (ideally around $80 or so). What do you guys recommend?

Checkout Fox 180 or 360 pants. Fox has last years model on close out for $60-$100 but sizes are limited.

Check out MXSouth, they have a closeout on a bunch of brands. I just picked up a pair of Fox 360 pants for $100. Here's a link to the Fox stuff, http://www.mxsouth.c...ox/foxcotoc.htm There's some other stuff too, and their customer support is top notch from my experience.

When you get those new riding pants make sure you keep away from the header. I melted a hole in a new pair of Thor pants the second day I had them on putting my bike up on the stand!

Seems like I remember hearing or reading of a manufacture that had a special pant just for the four stroke. I have also attached a soft leather patch to mine in the past. Works well.

I bought the 2000 Oneal hardware pants, jersey, and gloves on closeout for $139 from Motosports Outlet last fall. It's the most comfortable gear I've had so far(especially the jersey). Seems to be lasting pretty good-I've been using it all year without any problems.

Thanks for the link to MX South. Baught two pairs of Fox 360's and a jersey for around $225.00. That's $75.00 cheaper than I could get at my local dealer with my 20% discount. Customer service was good too! Thanks again
