PROTOTYPE: Kawasaki KXF450 AIR4ORCE
Weston Peick will be competing in the last four rounds of the Lucas Oil Motocross Championship with a prototype Moto Tassinari AIR4ORCE tunable intake system in his Kawasaki KXF450. Until now all prototype testing has been done by the Factory Kawasaki GP team and American Kawasaki. However after watching Weston's impressive ride at Washougal were he went 12/15 for 13th overall, we were able to scare up another prototype to supply Weston with for the remaining rounds.
Gopher Dunes Racing Ready for Rd.1 of CMRC Nationals
Derek Schuster of Gopher Dunes Racing sent over these pictures of the AIR4ORCE equipped team bikes of Topher Ingalls and Nathan Bles as they ready for the CMRC opener this weekend in Kamloops, British Columbia. These are definitely some of the sharpest looking Suzuki RM-Z 250's we've seen in awhile, so we had to share the pictures with all of you as well.
Topher Ingalls raced the 2011 Supercross Lites class on an AIR4ORCE equipped Honda CRF250R where his best finish was a 12th, before heading North to race the nine round CMRC series for Gopher Dunes Racing.
Dirt Rider's Jimmy Lewis reviews the VForce3
Though some publications out there have all but given up on two-strokes, Jimmy Lewis and the entire staff of Dirt Rider still embrace the two-stroke for their simplicity, ease of maintenance, lower maintenance costs and simple fact they're just plain fun to ride.
So needless to say we were quite pleased to open the August issue of Dirt Rider magazine and find a review of our VForce3 reed valve system on page 78. Because Dirt Rider still actively rides and tests two-stroke offerings from the manufacturers, we'd be hard pressed to think of a better publication to write a thorough review on the VForce3 reed valve system.
On bikes like the KTM 200 or smaller, such as the Yamaha YZ125, it lets you pull from a lower rpm with authority and in turn the bike bogs less.
—Dirt Rider/Jimmy Lewis / August 2011
Jimmy Lewis continues to further break down the performance benefits of the VForce3 reed valve system on a wide range of bikes and displacements. Definitely worth the read—but hey, isn't everything from Jimmy?
Dirt Rider's Pete Peterson on the AIR4ORCE
In the June issue of Dirt Rider magazine, Pete Peterson takes a shot at "fixing the 2011 Honda CRF250R to suit his personal tastes and riding preferences. In his quest for the elusive "three-stroke" the first modification done by Pete is the installation of the Moto Tassinari AIR4ORCE tunable intake system.
Pete also puts to rest any fears about a complex installation by adding, "Swapping stacks is simple, as is getting the new AIR4ORCE on…". Notice Pete didn't find a need to remove the rear shock as some reviewers have mentioned previously. Worth pointing out, is that we've never had to remove a shock on any model motorcycle we have installed an AIR4ORCE on while developing and testing the AIR4ORCE.
The short velocity stack took Honda a step closer toward that two-stroke feeling by freeing up the motor to rev quicker. —Dirt Rider / June '11
AIR4ORCE featured in issue 67 of MOTO Magazine
We've been a fan of MOTO Magazine for quite some time, so it's always a pleasure when we open up the latest issue and find a Moto Tassinari product featured inside. The AIR4ORCE is featured in the New Product section of issue 67, under the sub-head, "The Things You Need In Your Life". We couldn't agree more. Yeah, of course we're biased, but the AIR4ORCE is truly a simple bolt-on modification that enhances throttle response, acceleration and increases horsepower. All the things you expect from an expensive aftermarket exhaust system, you can get from the AIR4ORCE at less than 1/3 the price of an exhaust system. Better yet, is that the AIR4ORCE is not prone to crash damage like an expensive exhaust system and it has no moving parts to fail.
It's made a significant improvement in overall power on MOTO's test YZF300. —MOTO Magazine / Issue 67
