Click the video above for a review and demonstration of the DRC Edge2 Integrated Tail Light Kit for the Suzuki DRZ400S Dual Sport and DRZ400SM Supermoto. These tail light kits really clean up the back end of the DRZ400 making it look much better, while still being bright enough to keep you visible on the road. We have this exact kit on our DRZ400SM Project Bike and really like it.
These tail lights are very popular with DRZ400S Dual Sport riders looking for a tail light/turn signal setup that doesn't have external turn signals sticking out that can get broken off when riding off-road, and they're also very popular with the DRZ400SM supermoto riders who just want a compact tail light look.

Flatland Racing has made a few improvements to their popular skid plate for the Yamaha WR250R. Overall coverage of the engine remains the same, but the flat aluminum finish has been replaced by a beautiful polished finish, and the round holes on the front and sides of the skid plate have been replaced by oval shaped slots. Overall protection remains excellent, and now the skid plate looks much nicer on the bike.

The new Zeta PRO Armor Handguards have been very popular with our customers looking for the ultimate hand guard setup. We recently installed a set on our 2008 Ducati Hypermotard 1100S project bike, adding the optional Zeta XC PRO Plastic Protectors with integrated LED turn signals so we could get rid of the Ducati performance mirrors that housed the bikes front turn signals. We even sent out the plastic XC Pro protectors to Magik Kustom Graphics for some trick red Ducati graphics.
A local customer of ours just finished up a review of the new DoubleTake Adventure mirrors he put on his 2013 BMW G650GS Sertao...
I decided to try out the new Double Take Adventure Mirrors that have recently become available and I figured what better way to put them to the test than to try them out on a quick trip to ride part of the Trans-West Virginia Trail. Over the course of two days I covered 633 miles in conditions ranging from interstate travel to single track trails covering portions of Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The bike I chose for this trip was a single cylinder 2013 BMW G650GS Sertao. The Double Take Mirrors performed flawlessly as their design offers infinite adjustability, optical clarity, and apparently are fairly indestructible. Vibrations from the engine transmitted through the handle bars are no more noticeable than with the OEM mirrors and mounting was simple as the OEM mounting points are utilized for Ram ball attachment. Simply remove the stock mirrors, insert the supplied Ram ball and attach the mirrors. These are the ultimate adventure mirrors that are as good on-road as off. They can easily be folded out of the way or removed when the going gets tough. Basically the last mirrors you would every need to buy for your dual sport or adventure motorcycle.
All in all I would say one of the better items I have tried out in terms of functionality. I have been using the Double Take Enduro Mirrors on my dirt bikes with much success thanks to their durability but the Adventure Mirror is a winner for the street, back roads and any other trouble you want to get into with your dual sport motorcycle.
Click the video above for a review and demonstration of the new 12oClockLabs Gear Indicator for the 2008+ Yamaha WR250R and WR250X.
If you've ever ridden a bike with a gear position indicator, you'll wonder why all bikes don't have them. Like a lot of dual sport bikes, the dashboard on the Yamaha WR250R/X is very basic, and only displays speed, an odometer, and the time. You can now add a gear indicator to that thanks to the folks over at 12oClockLabs. This is a MUST-HAVE mod!
We recently installed one on both our Yamaha WR250R Project Bike and our Yamaha WR250X Project Bike. Installation is very simple, and setup is a breeze, thanks to the excellent instructions included with the kit. All wiring tucks up nicely under the side panel, seat and gas tank, and we attached the LED display unit to the right side of the dashboard. Once installed, you complete the setup by running the bike through the gears in "Learning Mode", and then you're ready to ride.
While riding, the gear you're in will be displayed on the LED display each time you release the clutch. Response time is very impressive, and both daytime and night time visibility is excellent thanks to the super-bright LED's and built-in brightness control.

If you're trying to decide between DoubleTake's Enduro Mirror or their new Adventure mirror, our advice is simple...
Choose the Enduro Mirror if you plan to fold the mirror down a large percentage of the time, or if you do a lot of off-road riding, These mirrors easily tuck away right behind the headlight, and are more suited for off-road riding.
Choose the Adventure Mirror if you plan to leave the mirror extended most of the time, or if you do mostly highway or street riding. The more compact design of this mirror is more stable at highway speeds.
Both mirrors provide outstanding visibility, are virtually indestructible, are easy to fold/remove, and will help protect your controls in the event of a crash.
