Monster Graves Yamaha&rsq brake clutch levers uo;s Josh Herrin rounded out the podium.Perhaps the bigg adjustable handle est upset in the race came when Herrin’s teammate and three-time defending SuperBike champion, Josh Hayes, crashed his Yamaha R1 after leading the initial laps. Hayes dropped to the back of the pack, and though he was able to recover and continue racing, adjustable Lever he was significantly behind and could only recover to 18th before the finish.When Hayes crashed, Hayden was running a close second and was able to take the front ahead of Cardenas, who hadmoved into third ahead of Herrin. Hayden and Cardenas proceeded to leave Herrin behind through the subsequent laps, making for a two-man battle to the final lap for the lead. Cardenas remained right on Hayden’s rear tire until the penultimate lap when he finally made a pass for the front stick. The Colombian was given additional breathing room thanks to Hayden’s disappointing final lap effort, which saw him post his slowest lap time of the contest.Hayden’s teammate, Danny Eslick, finished fourth followed by Team Hero’s Geoff May in fifth.

2014 Honda Pioneer First R brake clutch levers ide

{2014 Honda Pioneer First R brake clutch levers ide}
The 2014 Honda Pioneer replaces the Big Red UTV in Honda’s lineup and is built at Honda South Carolina Mfg., Inc. in Timmonsville.The North American market for side-by-side (SxS) off-road vehicles – also commonly referred to as Utility-Terrain Vehicles (UTVs) – grew by 97,900 units, or nearly 43.5%, from 2009-2012, according to Power Products Marketing, a Minneapolis-based research firm. Where did that growth come from? Primarily from extraordinary sales successes by Polaris, John Deere, Kawasaki, Kubota and BRP/Can-Am. Honda, the wor adjustable Levers ld’s largest purveyor of powersports vehicles, was late to the SxS market and attracted sales of around 4500 units per year since the introduction of its 675cc Big Red in 2009. The co Motorcycle lever mpany’s sole UTV offering is decidedly utilitarian and can’t, on its own, stack up against the range of the competition from Polaris, Kawasaki, John Deere and Kubota. On the other end of the customer spectrum, Honda’s die-hard powersports fans wondered why the company’s fun factor had disappeared. Ultimately, it appeared to simply be brand recognition for Honda product that drove Big Red sales. Now, four years after Big Red’s introduction, Honda has decided to discontinue the model and replace it with an all-new vehicle, the Pioneer. The 2014 Honda Pioneer ($9999) and Pioneer-4 ($11,699) represent “not only a new name but a new product family,” a Honda spokesman told us duringour recent stint with the vehicle. Honda says only 500 dealers in the U.S. retailed the Big Red. So far, the OEM has more than 900 dealers signed up to retail the Pioneer. Current production of about 55 units-a-day is likely to ramp up considerably, we were told. Dealer orders started June 20. The Big Red was built in Mexico, but the Honda Pioneer is built at Honda South Carolina Mfg., Inc. (HSC) in Timmonsville, S.C. where the newly installed SxS line joins two ATV lines. The vehicle originated at Honda Research & Development in Ohio – the fir motorcycle clutch st time a design was led solely by a U.S. team from concept to production. Honda says that, aside from the engine shared with the Big Red, everything was conceived uniquely for the Pioneer. Because of consumer response, Honda needed to get to market with the product quickly and managed to halve the development time usually needed. The OEM, for its market research, created what it calls its “Appeal Tree” – what they found is that consumers are looking for capabilities that rival more expensive models, convenience, trail ride comfort, fun, affordability, durability, that it shows quality and offers rider protection. Ultimately, Honda says it created a vehicle that offers more features than the Big Red at a similar price. THE RIDE The Pioneer is powered by Honda’s proven 675cc liquid-cooled OHV Single. The four-stroke four-valve fuel-injected engine is coupled to an automotive-style automatic transmission that brake clutch levers features a hydraulic torque converter, three hydraulic clutches and an Electronic Control Module (ECM) to regulate a new dual shift-mapping program. Honda does notlist horsepower data, but the Pioneer’s output is estimated at slightlyabove that ofthe 34-horsepower Rincon.The swamps of South Carolina proved no match for the Pioneer’s 4WD capabilities. Eight-inch front tires along with the suspension and general geometry made for easy turns, despite the absence of power steering.The ECM program selects between two transmission shifting modes – either Cruise or Sport mode – for optimum shift timing depending on the driver’s throttle operation. During aggressive use, the Sport mode kicks in and holds the transmission in gear longer. If you’re taking it easy, the Cruise mode shifts up sooner for extended range. As for drive modes, the Pioneer offers 2WD, 4WD and 4WD with mechanical differential lock, and features a three-speed (plus reverse) Hondamatic Transmission rather than conventional belt-drive CVT. Power is sent down the shaft to a new rear-wheel drive setup that now incorporates a non-differential rear end – one related to the setup used on Honda ATVs equipped with IRS. The first thing you notice upon start-up is a lack of vibration found in the Big Red. Thanks to a newly developed engine-mounting subframe and vibration-isolating bushings, every contact point for the driver and passenger now transmits noticeably less engine vibration. While it weighs in at 1,396 pounds, the Pioneer-4 we drove felt light and nimble. Power delivery isn’t overwhelming but adequate, with the three-speed Hondamatic engaging the vehicle in a decidedly regulated manner even when the accelerator is stomped on. Once underway in 2WD, roosting the rear end wasn’t a problem on loose terrain and the speedometer in my vehicle showed Honda’s stated 43 mph top speed while traveling on a gravel road. The Pioneer uses 25-8×12 front and 25-10×12 rear tires especially made for Honda by OTR. There is no power steering, but Honda insists the eight-inch front tires, along with the suspension and general geometry, make the vehicle easy to turn. Our time on the machine found that to be true. Bringing the Pioneer down from speed was easy with the 200mm discs up front and an inboard 170mm in the rear bitten by Nissin calipers. When the trail became more difficult, use of the 4WD and 4WD with mechanical differential lock performed as advertised. There is no hill descent assist, with only the transmission, brake and slight engine braking to keep you where you want to be. We used that 4WD while exploring a South Carolina swamp and, thanks to an airbox that sits in the vehicle’s cabin between the front seats and the bed wall, the only water we came in contact with was the bottled type stored in the molded cup holders. One of the big attractions of the Pioneer-4 is its convertible seating arrangement, which can be easily converted from two-seat to three-seat to four-seat configurations and back to an open load-carrying bed without the use of tools. Each of the two rear seats simply tilts up out of the bed structure with the release of a latch and locks into place. The four-step conversion takes only about 15 seconds to complete an adjustable Lever d the manual, strut-assisted tilt bed comes with a safety mechanism that won’t allow bed adjustment when the rear seats are employed. By the way, that bed offers a payload limit of 1000 pounds. Honda put a lot of effort into passenger safety so the Pioneer comes with three-point seatbelts and safety nets.It’s obvious Honda put a lot of effort into passenger safety. But, at this point, accessing these vehicles has become akin to strapping into a NASCAR ride: Open the door, unbuckle the safety net, climb in, close the door, buckle the safety net and attach three-point seatbelt. It sounds easy enough, and it is thoughtful for the sport-minded rider, but consumers using the Pioneer for utility purposes will find the process a bit of a hassle. The same situation racing lever occurs for the two occupants utilizing the rear suicide doors to access the jump seats. However, traveling in the rear jump seats proved surprisingly comfortable and expectations of jostling quickly diminished. In this case, the suspension provides the perfect amount of damping. As for that suspension: The Pioneer features 7.9 inches of travel via its double-wishbone independent front suspension and 9.1 inches of travel in the rear via its independent rear suspension with shocks adjustable for preload.This, together with 10.3 inches of ground clearance, allows the Pioneer to traverse a wide range of undulating obstacles. The machine became hung up on the crest of a sand berm only once during my day-long test, but I was easily able to engage 4WD with mechanical diff. lock and reverse out of the situation to find a new line. The Honda Pioneer’s double-wishbone independent front suspension features 7.9 inches of travel.Honda paid a lot of attention to the center of gravity on this vehicle, but the inside rear tire could be lofted easily in a turn at speed or during an errant roost. It’s important to note that operating any vehicle at its limit will ultimately result in negative effects. Nevertheless, curving around trails at speed with the correct amount of brake and throttle kept the front tires pointing the vehicle in the desired direction and I felt very little push while cornering rapidly. Like to get wet? Dry storage is minimal, with only a glovebox and a small space that is shared with the radiator under the hood. Inside, the dash layout is simple, with only a speedometer and basic warning lamps. The gauge cluster was made smaller than on the Big Red, but the speedo itself remains the same size. The gear selector and drive mode selector are in the middle of the dash, just above the vehicle’s sole 12v power outlet. Located to the left of the steering wheel, the handbrake offers automotive-style actuation that allows it to easily disengage while parked on an incline. Often times, with other side-by-sides, operators will have to rock their vehicles to disengage a handbrake in that situation. Deliveries of the Pioneer-4 will begin in mid August while deliveries of the two-seater Pioneer will begin in mid September. Available colors include Red, Olive Green and Honda’s trademarked Pha clutch and brake levers ntom Camo ($600). Interested? Then you also may want to look into the 50-some accessories that are to be made available with the rollout of the vehicle. Waiting for a Honda SxS designed to compete with the best-selling Polaris RZR, Arctic Cat Wildcat and Can-Am Maverick? The industry is rife with tales of Honda having tested multiple sport-recreational vehicles to compete against class leaders. But, at this point, you’ll just have to sit back, adjustable handle wait, and enjoy the Pioneer.

2013 Yamaha Raptor 7 adjustable Levers 00R First Ride

{2013 Yamaha Raptor 7 adjustable Levers 00R First Ride}
Yamaha updates its popular sport ATV. Watch the 2013 Yamaha Raptor 700R First Ride Video to see it in action.Yamaha has a great thing going with its Raptor 700R sport ATV. The current market has nothing that matches up head-to-head with its big-bore engine, performance suspension and straight-axle rear end. MotoUSA knows firsthand how popular this quad is with recreational riders. We regularly see the big Yammie roaming trails and strafing the sand dunes – both of which are its natural environments. Yamaha tweaked its big-bore sport ATV for 2013to keep the Raptor 700R at the top of the sport segment, and we headed to Central Oregon for a trail ride on the updated quad. The primary changes for MY13 are styling and ergonomics. The front end of the ATV looks and feels different. Yamaha’s recognizable Raptor grill retains its traditional styling but has a few tweaks. Its front fenders have been moved forward 50mm to allow more room in the saddle, and our 6’0” test rider never felt his knees come into contact regardles clutch and brake levers s of body position or level of aggressive riding. Yamaha made this adjustment in response to rider surveys which identified typical Raptor pilots as larger, heavier and desiring additional comfort. The seat is extremely comfortable. We’d like it to have the same flared shape as the YFZ450R as it is possible to feel the edge of the seat base at extreme leans, but the foam density is suitable for all-day riding. One thing riders won’t notice on the front end is the digital speedometer. Yamaha removed the computer system this year in order to cut down on costs. We never noticed it missing during our ride and the only time we really used it in the past anyway was for the trip meter functio clutch lever n. There are still warning lights in front of the handlebars, but this is one of the reasons that the MSRP dropped $300 ($8099) for the 700R and $200 ($8799) for the 700R SE – a worthy tradeoff in our minds. Top: The 700R gets a new grill. Above: The digital meter isgone and a new set of Maxxis tires provides traction.The steel and aluminum chassis is powdercoated a silver/gray color which matches the engine. The frame makes use ofaluminum rear sections and a steel front section for balanced rigidity and weight. Yamaha shod its big straight-axle quad with new tires. It traded out the old Dunlops for a new set of Maxxis tires. The tread pattern provides excellent traction and a stiffer sidewall limits roll and maintains predictable sliding. We rode the Raptor o motorcycle clutch n dry Oregon trails and sharp volcanic rocks and never had an issue with the front end pushing or the chassis getting unsettled. The fr adjustable Lever ont end is so responsive that it takes a bit of care when lofting the front end through whoops and then setting it down at speed. If the handlebars are angled then the ATV is going to immediately follow them. This makes it very easy to be precise when navigating tight trees. The rear tires have great bite on acceleration and braking, but the front treads were our favorite upgrade. A twin-piston rear brake caliper comes straight off the YFZ450R, replacing the old single-pot binder and providing plenty of power. Yamaha claims the new brake is targeted at enhancing the rider’s feel at the lever more than boosting outright braking power. After riding the 700R on dry, slippery terrain, we have to agree that the caliper does allow a great deal of control, even when traction is minimal. Yamaha also gets the benefit of sharing common parts between models for quality control and price reduction. The 700R still uses its proven fuel-injected single cylinder engine, the powerplant completely unchanged for 2013. The big piston thumps inside the 102 x 84mm bore and stroke with a 9.2:1 compression ratio. It’s anything but a slow-revving big-bore. Yamaha introduced needle bearing rocker arms in 2006 which helped drop friction by 50% over the previous model. What we have today is a smooth but quick-revving powerplant that oozes torque across the rpm range. Dual counterbalancers keep it smooth and riding the Raptor isa pleasant experience. It’s more than willing to chug along lazily or wick up the pace and do work with its five-speed transmission. The trails at our ride location were nearly perfect for third gear all day long. A few long stretches allowed fourth and heading for gravel roads maxed top speed in fifth. The tranny shifts without issue and gearing is pretty good. The gap between third and fourth is a bit tall at times, but the powerful engine is more than capable of pulling a tall cog. Having reverse in the gearbox is a nice addition as well. At a claimed 422 pounds (wet), having to muscle the 700R in a bind isn’t ideal. Fuel injection takes the hassle out of fueling at any altitude.Our ride site at East Fort Rock OHV area outside of Bend, Oregon ranged from approximately 4400-6400 feet of elevation. We never had to worry about the altitude with convenient fuel injection. Having the ability to jaunt over to the coast and shred the dunes without swapping jets is priceless, and the EFI system is one of the most important things to Raptor owners, according to a Yamaha study. In addition to the blue/white Raptor 700R and Special Edition, Yamaha also offers a Raptor 700. This machine is a more affordable version of the 700R which is made possible by usinglower-spec suspension. The front shocks are non-piggyback designs without compression or rebound adjustment. The rear is the same shock as used on the R model but without the compression and rebound adjustment. Another difference is the front brake lever which is fixed-position. Buyers will get two sets of graphics to choose from and a very p motorcycle brake lever alatable pricetag of $7699. Yamaha only let us saddle up the R model, but the 2013 Raptors are heavy-duty fun and offer unique performance in the sport quad market. Another budget-friendly option creates an even wider spread of Yamaha sport ATVs. Families can choose from the Raptor 9 Motorcycle Racing Part0, 125, 250, 350, 700, 700R and 700R SE, plus the YFZ450 and YFZ450R. These models provide something for everyone with pricetags ranging from $2699 to $8799. There haven’t been a huge amount of changes to the Raptor, but the ones that were made for ’13 are important for several reasons. First off, it demonstrates Yamaha’s ongoing dedication to the big-bore sport ATV. In challenging economic times, seeing smart upgrades is important for consumers. Also, the Raptor 700 and 700R are now assembled in the USA., which shows the Japanese giant’s emphasis on the American market. Plenty of OEMs are moving production facilities outside of the US, but Yamaha has been investing in the Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corp of America (YMMC), located in Newnan, Georgia, for the past decade. The Rhino UTV and many utility ATVs have been assembled in Georgia for years, but since 2010 Yamaha has been implementing the ATV Production Transfer Strategy. Now all of the 4×4 quads and SxS production are at YMCC, and the Raptor 700R is the first sport ATV built in America. And finally, the introduction of the Raptor 700 and the cost-saving moves with the 700R and SE models is proof that the move to YMMC has helped Yamaha connect to American riders, listening to what they value and implementing that with new model designs.The Raptor 700R is as amazing as ever. Yamaha has every right to be proud of its new production strategy and has fo brake clutch levers und a way to offer improved performance for less price. We’re looking forward to a chance to sample the new 700, but the king of the Raptor family is still one of the best all-around sport ATVs available in any shape or size.Left: The new Raptor 700 ($7699).
