Following a series of information releases on the CRF1000L Africa Twin, American Honda has publicized pricing for the all-new model and also revealed additional details on the trailblazing adventure bike. At the same time, Honda officially announced a number of returning on-road models, several of which are offered in new colors for 2016.

Powered by a brand-new 998cc parallel-twin engine, the Africa Twin is available in two versions—one with a highly advanced Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), and another with a standard gearbox; pricing is set at $13,699 and $12,999, respectively. Both versions come standard with ABS and Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and are extremely capable in highway and off-road applications.

Need New Skis For Your Sled?

Winter is coming and now would be a good time to take a walk out to your garage and take a look at the skis on your sled.  Get the sled on it’s side and really check out the bottom of the ski sole.  We see a lot of worn out plastic skis from riding on the edge of the road with one ski on the pavement or from letting your carbides wear down too far and then your ski sole gets chewed up in a hurry!  At Petrie Motorsports we keep a good selection of carbides in stock and we can get you the new Slydog line of skis (below) for all the major brands of sleds.  Check out this LINK for a listing of part numbers and accessories to build your cool custom skis.

With the introduction of the KTM 1190 Adventure there has been a rush of new products on the market to fill a demand for cool new “performance products” that owners think they need on their bike.  One of those items that typically will give some small performance gains is a new, less restrictive air filter, or at least one that is easier to clean.  

I have seen several sites selling the new Uni air filter for the KTM 1190 Adventure and it’s being sold as the “greatest thing since sliced bread”.  This filter is coming from Uni – Australia and is not available from Uni – USA.  I recently was at the Parts Unlimited Expo and Uni USA was in attendance and I spoke directly with their representative as to why the filter was not available in the USA?  There were several reasons:

1)  The OEM filter design is poor (in their opinion) and does not provide enough filter material/space.

2)  The Australian Uni replacement filter design is just a small perimeter filter with some foam that is pushed into the intake tubes and they feel that that will become very restrictive and not work as intended.

3)  Due to the poor OEM design, and the problems with dirt ingestion that some customers are having, Uni USA does not want to take on the liability of potential engine damage and the possibility that a customer would claim it was a result of their filter.  

So take that for what it is worth and be cautious about what you are putting on your bike.  Not everything you see has been thoroughly tested and you may be rushing head first into a problem.
