( 9) Clutch basket. Just as with full-size MXA test
riders, we have clutch-abusing mini-sized MXA test riders
also. We beefed up the clutch with a Nihilo Concepts
billet-aluminum clutch basket and heavy-duty springs.
The clutch pull was harder at the lever, but it was well
worth it for the extended longevity.
STYLE HAS A PURPOSE
Granted, we didn’t have to trick the bike out with cool
Nihilo Concepts anodized blue parts, but we did anyway. We justified it by reasoning that they are built to
improve strength—and they look super trick. Did we go
overboard with this build? Of course we did; we always
do. But, you don’t have to buy every part that we used.
You can pick and choose the areas on your TC85 that
you need to fix. Our goal was to help any TC85 racer
solve the issues he’s been having with his TC85. And, if
he’s like us, he’ll want to trick it out at the same time. ❏
In stock trim the TC85 footpegs are narrow. We installed
some Husky Power super-wide titanium pegs for better grip.
The stock plastic impeller can break. We added a Nihilo
high-volume water pump to increase water flow.
We added an adjustable Husky Power head, Nihilo carbon
fiber headstays and a complete Moto Hose system.
The Fox Podium RC2 shock was a huge upgrade to the TC85
that gave improved durability and performance.
