So, what do you think of those Hipers?
I like them a lot. I had the rear rims for about 2 years. They were on my 250R. The tires and the front rims are only a couple of months old. The thing I like the best is I can take the tires off of the rims myself without any special tools. I was at Croom motorcycle park on Sunday and got a rear flat, hole in the side wall. Luckily the motorcycle shop at the front gate is open on Sunday, but no mechanic. I was able to change the tire myself.

Ok TRXRacer, one more question. Is it the Hipers or any of the bead locks that make it easy to change tires without a machine? Because, that to me makes buying beadlocks worth it! :D

I'm not sure about other beadlocks. On the rear it is a dual beadlock so you take off the rings and the inner part of the rim almost slides right out. You need to just pop it out with a screwdriver. The front you take the ring off and it is easy to break to bead by just standing on the tire.

Cascade Innovations. They have 4 different 450R seat covers. There is a couple pictured on their website in the photo album section page 2, but if you call them they will send you a bunch of material samples and the different patterns. Here is their website.
