Hiper Tech Question

Is Hiper Tech CF1 or 3's a really heavy rim, i have always thought they were light? I do alot of asphalt racing and want to get a new set of wheels but been hearing they are heavy and not worth it.

They weight is considerably more than a standard wheel. I haven't weighed them however, my Tech 3's feel twice as heavy as the oem wheels and they leak like hell....Run tire balls....Now you're adding more weight....Ouch..You just can't win with Hiper.

Heavy as crap.
I have a set, I'll get you a weight.
But if your serious about drag racing, hipers are not going on the bike

I can only attest for the CF1's. But yes, if you want a beadlock that is lighter, go with a thin aluminum. The hiper's are great for tough riding because the material won't bend like aluminum, your application is totally different though.

I've done it a couple times...Hit a rock or root just right and it's coming off. I hit a root one time and punched a hole in the sidewall of one of my front tires....I hate walking 20 miles back to the truck through mountain lion and bear country....

Popped a bead quite a few times as well.
You play a fine line with traction and air pressure. Some places I would like to run 3-4psi. Others 5-6

ive never had a set but that is what I assumed it was for. So you can run super low tyre pressures. Like how 4bys do in the bush and competition 4x4s use bead locks.

This was in October before I really started modding my YFZR... This was also landing off a 3 foot jump to flat with 5psi in my 18x10-9 Maxxis Razr MX rears. If I was running 8inch rims without beadlocks, I'd pop a lot more beads. That being said, whenever I upgrade rims, I'm going to 8 inch beadlocks.[ThumbsUp]



PS... I absolutly hate Fly gear... A friend of mine got me that jersey/pants set with my name and number on it just to tick me off. I now use them as my practice set. Haha

Also @kilroy , this might explain why I'm buying extended steering stems... Hahaha

Ok, I run 7-8 psi .makes sense now, how does running 3-4 psi effect high speed handling? We have one trail that's 4-5 gear flat sweepers , seems like it would be all over the trail

I personally don't trail ride. It's not that it's not fun, I just enjoy motocross a lot more.

However, Imo, you get more grip at lower pressures. But, you also get less suspension, or at least a lot rougher suspension.

I've experimented with tire pressures before. Higher pressures feels more "floaty" to me. It doesn't really feel like I have full contact with the ground, but more like only the middle two knobs are actually gripping, the rest is just hovering above the ground. But at too low of pressure, it feels like I'm riding on the rim.

That being said, at high speeds with lower pressure, I feel like I have more grip, while higher pressure feels floaty. And at high speeds, I DO NOT want to feel floaty.

I wanted a Walsh +2, but Danica talked me into a +1. Between that, Precision clamps add 3/4" of rise, and I bought Renthal Fatbars in the RC High bend to try to add a little bit more yet, I'm hoping that I'll be sitting pretty good. If it's still not tall enough, I'll sell the stem and order a Walsh +2.[ThumbsUp]

How do your cables and line fit? Were the stocks long enough, or did you get extended cables/brake line?
