World SX Preview on the Pro Taper Kickstart Podcast



Presented by Pro Taper

We are only a few days away from the first gate drop on the World Supercross Championship Series, which gets underway in Cardiff, Wales, this Saturday! We’ve seen several of the players in action recently, and we go over who we’ve seen and what we think. There’s also some big news in the works, and we touch on all of that and more, on this week’s Kickstart Podcast, presented by Pro Taper!

    im loving my new pro taper bars my wife got me for my birthday……the bend is right on par and they make me feel so connected to the bike……the grips i won didnt work with my xr200 so i asked for a pair of universal bar mounts and they are sending them out to me instead…..Pro Taper is the best company i ever dealt with……

    I think it’s funny you gave the guy with sticky posters clamp-on grips. Keep up the great work. I enjoy your content, no sticky.
