Quick Tip: Bike Stand Oil Change
Just when you think you've seen it all something happens right in front of you that's so cool because it's so simple and effective. A few years ago while walking through the Houston Supercross pits we spotted something looking very odd under the BTO Sports awning - it looked like mechanic Nate Alexander was struggling to put Andrew Short's bike on the stand, and had in fact let the bike slip off the back. Rather than look flustered, Nate just grabbed an oil drain pan and started to change the bike's oil. He'd figured out this clever way to get a bike to stand straight up and remain stable, all while keeping the bike stand out of the way for an oil change. And if your bike, like most, has the oil drain plug on the bottom of the cases, be sure you're turning the bolt the correct way, you can get it backwards pretty easily if your reaching down and working 'upside down.' **Note:** This quick tip will work on most four-stroke dirt bikes. Two-strokes may have pipe clearance issues.
Canvas MX Gear - DR Tested
Are you looking to brand yourself and create your own identity on the track? Canvas MX puts you in charge of what logos and designs you want on your next riding pant and jersey. We designed and tested our own pant and jersey to see how it looked and how it performed out on the track as well. Learn more about Canvas MX right here in this DR TESTED video with Associate Editor Kris Keefer.
Moose Sahara Vented Gear - DR Tested
Riding mostly in Southern California, we can use vented gear almost all year long. The Sahara line of gear from Moose is on the burlier side of vented gear not so thin that it is unsubstantial, it just flows more air than a standard set of gear. Both the jersey and the pant are cut pretty generously, especially below the knees in the pant. Since that part of the pant end up in your boot anyway, it could be a lot slimmer fitting and still get the job done. Durability was pretty great for this set of gear. After six months or more of hard riding and abuse, there were only a few holes in the jersey and the pant was pretty much unscathed.
