Elka YFZ450/TRX450R Suspension

Elka Suspension was already building shocks for the Yamaha YFZ450 and Honda TRX450R before your local dealer even had one. They’ve got the process down. These shocks are available in so many configurations there’s no way we can list them here. Elka shocks are used by several of the top names in all forms of ATV racing as well as the current GNC points leader Doug Gust. If your building a new 450 this year it wouldn’t hurt to give Elka a ring.

Tire Balls

Tire Balls are one of the most innovative things we’ve seen in ATV racing the past year. Our only question is; why didn’t someone think of it sooner? How it works: Several Tire Balls fill the inside of your tire with a pressure of about 4psi. If one gets popped, there are several more to keep you floating along without a flat. Bill Balance and 12 other of the top 18 Pro GNCC riders are using tire balls. For more info contact:
