Chad Reed's YZ450F

21 posts in this topic

I used to race in Canada against Paul Delaurier. He was my arch rival we battled it out every weekend. Now I just need to catch up to him in the pits so he can work on sending me all that cool used stuff off of Reed's bike. So I can put it on my new 450f. I bet they throw out alot of cool stuff.

I wonder if drilling the hole in the lever really works. :ride:

It does. So does scoring the backside of the lever with a hacksaw. I prefer the ASV solution, however.

Jeremy MGrath recommends doing it in his auto-biography.

Steve Bruhn did a good job on the writeup. He and I grew up in the same town and use to ride together. He is a great photographer. Man can he shoot some pics.

I was going to say the opposite about his pics..

Man just seeing those two things about the oring and drilling the hole just goes to show how many little "secrets" that are out there...

what wrong with it? Maybe not as sharp as it could be but that could be that the pic was blown up from the original size.

Even if ,it is what it is, Bubba and Ricky have off days. Try digging up some more and comparing.

Just my opinion...I don't think TFS's work is anything special..

Good article though...

I spent how much on ASV levers? :ride: What a waste! :ride:

A drilled lever will break off at the hole leaving you enough to finish the race/ride but will need replacing.

ASV's should never break.
