In the last year, we’ve seen the rise of the 12″ knobby. These tires obviously handle the rough stuff, but are shockingly good on road. Certainly not tires you’d want to do track days on, but they’ll get you comfortably down the road for sure. All three of these are great tires, and it boils down to your intention. All three tires in this shot are 130/70-12.

The Maxxis 6024 (left) is by far the lightest at 6.8lbs. It’s tighter tread spacing would lend it to a slightly smoother road ride. We would consider this tire geared for the street slightly more than the others.

The Kenda Big Block (center) is by far our most popular knobby. Heavier at 8.6lbs, it’s wider thread spacing will provide more offload bite, and we’ve been shocked how well these tires grip when pushed hard on dry pavement. This tire has proven to be the all-arounder of the group.

The Shinko Mobber (right) is the newest release of the three, just now hitting the market. At 9.0lbs, it’s without question the closest to a true offload tire. We watched it’s tall soft lugs win the offroad racing at Barber Small Bore. This is the most aggressive offroad tire in the group.


Just a bit of insight on our bike maps…. We get a lot of emails requesting maps, from people who purchased their tuners on eBay, Amazon, or from another vendor. Our maps are effective and free, but we support those who support us. No doubt you can search the internet over and find slightly lower pricing, but we always price fairly from the start, and back up our sales long into the future with support. There’s value to the customer there that far outweighs the minuscule savings elsewhere, and your patronage here justifies the extensive time we invest into testing, tuning, and providing maps otherwise free of charge. We want all riders to maximize the potential of their bikes, and enjoy the ride, but we request you don’t ask us for support of tuners purchased elsewhere. Thx, MNNTHBX team.

8 months of development with some of the greatest engine designers in the country (think Nascar and Formula 1) lead us to the release of our new titanium Ruckus valves. Loaded with technology, these valve flow better, and because of the extremely light weight, won’t float at high unlimited revs.

Here’s our dyno date from our track Z vs. our stock Z. The numbers are a bit low, as the hot motor has a total of 8 miles on it, but impressive none the less, on a reliable and easy to build screamer.

Working on a little something about to be released into the small bore market, and I have to say we’re pretty excited to see this unit join the scene. There’s a lot to like. More soon…
