6D ATR-1Y YOUTH HELMET
The 6D ATR-1Y meets the same safety standards as
their adult helmets. By using dual helmet liners that are
separated by 27 elastomer dampers, each liner can do
its job independently, joining forces under a high impact
load to become one thick liner. The elastomers can
lessen side loads on impact. The 6D ATR-1Y is the
most innovative youth helmet ever made
VERDICT: Most Youth riders, still new to the sport,
have yet to suffer a major concussion. We believe that
the ATR-1Y could keep it that way.

JGRMX ADJUSTABLE YZ450F/250F
The JGRMX YZ250F/450F adjustable shock link system
not only lowers the rear of 2010–’ 15 YZ450Fs and 2014–
’ 15 YZ250Fs, but it also stiffens the rear of the YZ-F’s
Kayaba shock during its initial movement.
VERDICT: The JGR adjustable linkage mounts like
any other aftermarket linkage with the exception of the
snap-in inserts that fit in the rear-link bolt holes. As for
lowering the rear of the bike, 1mm longer will lower it
8mm, 2mm will lower it 14mm, 3mm will lower it 19mm,
and 4mm will lower it 23mm.

The Slacker Digital sag scale takes the guesswork out
of checking sag on both the shock and forks. It uses a
retractable cable that is attached between the rear axle
and the rear fender to send a readout to the LCD display
in millimeters. Thanks to Slacker’s remote display it is
possible to check your bike’s sag without the help of a
friend. Just hook it up and read the remote unit.
VERDICT: You can buy a lot of tape measures for
$139, but we found the Slacker Digital sag scale to be
easy to use, accurate and fun to play with.

USED IT, ABUSED IT, MISUSED IT & LOVED IT
APPLIED RACING RM-Z250/450
BILLET IGNITION COVER
RM-Z250 and RM-Z450 ignition covers can and do
break. So, we run Applied’s billet RM-Z ignition cover.
It is CNC-machined from billet aluminum, beefed up for
durability and akadized for corrosion protection. With
more material around the stator mount and inspection
plug, it won’t break.
VERDICT: Applied Racing’s Suzuki RM-Z450 ignition
cover isn’t a performance product. It is, however, a smart
investment. The $299.95 price tag is far cheaper than
fixing an engine damaged by broken pieces.
