2018 Husky FE 350 on the cover of Dirt Bike Magazine

Check out the reviews section for more info. We coverted this street legal dual sport into a pure off road weapon. We ditched 10 lbs of weight and added 10 Hp as well as drastically improved the suspension to transform this mild mannered fe350 into a real off road machine. The biggest improvement was the forks. Our APS mods absolutely transform these painfully soft forks into really great performers. $425 Next is the engine, our +10 hp kit wakes up this sleepy 350. $750 includes fmf muffler, fuel tuner and hi flow airboot. Don't forget about the shock. With the forks working great, the shock falls short in performance. $210. 916-705-3193

Dirt Bike Magazine - October ‘10 -  2010 KTM 250XC

Overall, it's one of the best 250 off-road power plants that we've abused. His machine looked like a headliner, performed like a rockstar, and were sorry when he called and demanded it back. If you're a serious off-roader, Dicks Racing is a great one-stop shop.

Motocross Action Magazine 5-Star Rating -" Forget all you know about carburetors, because this jewel turned our KTM 300 into a rocketship. A great mod. It is a supercharger."

The World’s Trickest Yamaha?

Besides bringing down a tricked-out Honda for Toon Karsmakers to race at the Vet Worlds, Dick's Racing also brought with them a built-up test bike for MXA to get started with. The bike was festooned with more trick parts than you'll find on any two bikes. Here's a sampling of what stood out as the bike stood still. For the full test, look for it soon in the pages of Motocross Action.
