Mooresville, NC – Any person that rides dirt bikes ends up in an intimate relationship with mud.  Whether you are riding on the track or on the trails, you are eventually going to pack every nook and cranny of your bike with wet, sticky mud.  Because of this, it is vital to understand how mud affects the performance of the bike.  An engine packed with mud will tend to overheat quicker, and the added weight from the excess mud will negatively impact your bikes power, suspension tuning and overall handling.  Additionally, it covers up your numbers and blocks important sponsor stickers.

Removing the excess mud is always a dirty task.  Historically, riders have used screwdrivers, sticks, or their bare hands to try and free their bikes from a thick coat of mud.  All of these methods are inefficient and slow.  Even when using a power washer, removing the majority of the mud first is a huge time saver, especially when water is in limited supply at the track.  Luckily, Risk Racing now offers an alternative to screwdrivers and sticks with the new Mud Axe.

The Risk Racing Mud Axe is specifically designed to make the task of removing excess mud from your dirt bike, quad or UTV quick and easy.  The head of the Mud Axe is shaped to make swift work of fenders as well as hubs and wheels, which is important in reducing rotating mass.  The pick on the other end of the Mud Axe is perfect for clearing foot pegs, brake pedals, engine bays, suspension linkages, and any other tight spot that mud finds its way into.  The ergonomic “arched” design of the body is great for scraping the inside of your fender while keeping your hand out of the muck.  The overmolded rubber handle on this tool ensures a firm and comfortable grip.  Finally, the Mud Axe is a robust tool constructed of a heat resistant glass reinforced plastic composite.  This makes it extremely durable and safe to use on hot engines and exhaust.

Most dirt bike riders are faced with leaky fork seals several times a year.  Riders are then challenged to repair a complicated and sensitive suspension system which requires specialty tools.  The alternative is to pay for an expensive repair bill and take time off the bike while it is in the shop.  Additionally, it can ruin a race day or an epic trail ride.  However, having the ability to quickly and easily repair a leaky fork seal at the track or on the trail can save repair costs, race entry fees, salvage valuable title points or reclaim that weekend trail ride!

The Risk Racing Seal Doctor removes the dirt that typically causes a leaky fork seal...And you can do it right at the track or on the trail!

The majority of fork seals leak due to dirt being trapped in the seal.  Obviously this leak will affect the suspension tuning of your bike. It can also soak your front brake pads creating unsafe riding conditions.  This common problem is exactly why the Seal Doctor was designed.  Just snap the Seal Doctor on your fork tube, insert it into the leaky seal and twist.  The design of the Seal Doctor maintains the proper position and angle as you rotate around your fork tube.  It effortlessly pulls the dirt out of the fork rather than pushing it deeper into the fork.

The Seal Doctor also comes with a protective holder so that it can be stored safely in your toolbox or trail pack ensuring you always have the appropriate tool for the job.
