#ASV Clutch & Brake Levers

 I just finished up my 4 motos, two 250 class motos and two 450 class motos and feel like I need a lot more work on corners and also watching out for crashed riders on the track in front of me.  It was a wild and crazy day; that's for sure.  My first 250 moto was just plain weird!  Three of us was bunched together going into a far corner of the track.  Some new guy was running the water truck.  As we entered into the corner it was a complete mud puddle but the worse of it the water truck operator didn't see us because he was watering with traffic not against it so we were in his blind spot.  Evidently as we found out later was that the water throttle was stuck and he couldn't turn it off so he knocked us off our bikes into the mud puddle and kept spraying water on us as we layed there in the mud. We got back up covered with mud but when I got back to the trailer and washed the bike I noticed that the crash took a toll on the brake lever.  The stock Yamaha lever was cracked and bent down but I still could use the brake; at least until my last 250 race.  A rider crashed pretty hard in front of me and as I went over him I went down and the brake lever completely broke off.

It's pretty hard to race without a front brake lever so it ended my race which was my last race of the day.

I wanted to get some #ASV levers anyway.  I've put my application in for a sponsorship to help pay for new levers but haven't heard back from them yet.

So, my grandpa and I start searching for the new levers.  #ASV is backordered on everything for over 2 weeks.  I was wanting to pick up the C6 but no luck.  We called Rocky Mountain ATV and found the C6 in blue and placed the order.  They were in stock in Kentucky. Then the next day I got a call back from Marcie and she said their inventory was off and they didn't have the #ASV C-6 levers in stock.  Great, now what? I can't find levers! We asked what about the #ASV F-4? She checked inventory and said that they could FEDEX the clutch and lever because she found a pair in stock in Kentucky.  Have you ever noticed that Rocky Mountain hardly ever has inventory in Payson, Utah?  Anyway, placed the order and waiting for them to arrive to mount them on my bike.

They are going to look great on the Yamaha and #ASV is a great Made in America Company!    As soon as I get them and mount them I'll post the pictures.

About ASV Inventions
Lifelong motorcyclist, racer, entrepreneur and bicycle industry business leader Bob Morales came up with the idea for the unbreakable motorcycle lever in 1995 when he broke his clutch lever while practicing for a motocross race. After selling his interest in Kore Bicycle Components in 1998, he started developing his pivoting lever idea and founded ASV Inventions. 

He sold the first unbreakable dirt bike levers at the Glen Helen National in May of 2000. It took six months to sell through the initial 250 unit production run of CNC-machined clutches as dealers and riders got their heads around the idea of a lever that was built to last and to improve the rider experience instead of something you bought in pairs and replaced as needed.

Since those early days of skepticism, ASV has sold over a million unbreakable levers worldwide to riders and racers and have expanded from the off-road market into the quad, street and adventure categories and beyond. 

Bob Morales is still at the helm, and his mission — besides trying to ride as many days of the week as he can pull off — remains to bring products to market that are category changing. As riders ourselves, we are all committed to developing high-end parts you are proud to have on your bike, not just because they look great but because they make your riding experience better. 

From day one, we’ve backed up our levers with an unconditional guarantee — as crazy an idea in the motorcycle world as unbreakable levers were when we introduced them. Through market ups and downs we have never strayed from the idea of using only the highest-quality components in all our parts and backing them with an unbeatable warranty and customer service we can be proud of.

 Okay, I am showing off my great new red, white and blue #ONEALRIDERS gear.  O'Neal is so busy that they are basically back ordered on most of their stock but my helmet finally arrived and yes, I'm stoked!  Here is a photo of my #ONEOFUS #O'Neal Gear.  I'm also wearing my #FLOWVISION Goggles which match my gear.

Here is my latest copy of my Resume.  Please pass it on to whoever you think would like to sponsor my efforts in MX Racing.  I do want to thank my sponsors (in alphabetic order) #ASTERISK, #ACERBIS, #FLOWVISION, #ODI, #ONEALRIDERS AND #PIVOTRAX.  Without their help I wouldn't even be able to have a chance riding.  Thanks Guys, all of you!

Fasst Company Flexx Bars, 891Suspension, PIVOTRAX Tires, Attach Graphics & ACERBIS Plastics :)

A complete makeover was finished on my 2021 Yamaha YZ250F Monster Edition and I'm loving it!  

After breaking my leg I knew that I had to do something with my suspension so I had #891Suspension, #TJBronson rebuild it for a guy my size. It is working out fantastic. 

 Next was a stop at #Fasst Company to pick up the new #Flexx Bars Moto 12° 32". I was running the bars on my 2017 Honda CRF450R that we just sold so I kind of knew what to expect that they actually worked better on my Yam than on the Honda. Huuuuge difference. I only experience a bit of arm pump when I first started riding and practicing at #Mountain West Motocross Park in #Mona, Utah.  Oh yeah, not to forget my new black #ODI V2 Lock-On Grips.  New bars have to have new grips!

 Of course I had to change the plastics so we installed a complete #ACERBIS plastics kit in all black. It took a while. The rear fender has over 10 bolts and insert washers that had to come out and put back in. Even had to loosen the muffler just to get to two of them. But gotter done! 

When they invented graphics they wanted to screw with people; that's for sure. I got the complete #Rocky Mountain ATV #Attack Graphics kit for the Yam. Look at them sideways and they'll get a wrinkle or crease. Don't even try to move them once they get stuck on. The glue on those things are used on space ships instead of rivets; that's for sure. The bike is looking good. 

 #PIVOTRAX TIRES!!! I can't say enough about these tires. I've run other tires on the Hondas and then initially the tires that came on the #Yamaha but nothing compares to the way these tires dig in and corner. I absolutely love them and love #PIVOTRAX.  You're running a great tire until you throw on a pair of these tires.

I wouldn't even be able to ride without a great pair of #FlowVision Goggles.  I'll never ever be able to pay back all of the help you've given me.  Thanks guys.  And by the way when you're looking at the #Flow Vision Goggles check out my amazing Helmet and Paint job by #DanFelixDesigns out of Bunkerville, Nevada.

If you know anybody or company that wants to help a kid out check out my GoFundMe page.  Every penny counts.
