New Ray Toys latest include this 14 Honda “farewell bike” for Kevin Windham, who is now retired from motocross racing. To make the toy motorcycle even more marketable, it comes with stickers for other riders like Eli Tolmac and Wil Hahn.

Other new toys include a TwoTwo Motorsports Chad Reed bike and Valentino Rossi’s MotoGP bike. Next year look out for James Stewart’s KTM bike.

Maier USA informed us that it has seen an increase in demand for three-wheeler stuff, and that people are starting to race the units more often. In response, Maier has introduced a replacement headlight shell for the 1986 ATC-250R after having long offered one for the 1985 model. Suggested retail is $68.27.

Maier also has new rear number plates for the Polaris RZR XP and RZRXP4. They fit right behind the roll bar and are contoured to fit the machine. Suggested retail is $39.60 for the pair, left and right.

Maxxis was displaying its new intermediate motocross tire, the Maxxcross MX IT, that uses multiple-compound technology. Maxxis engineers placed a soft cap of rubber across the center of the tire to absorb vibration and enhance traction on the front tire. They used a softer compound in the center of the rear tire for firm cornering grip combined with starting traction for holeshots. Maxxis claims the new tires’ varied construction makes it perfect for outdoor tracks with varying terrain types.

Pro Armor had at its booth a dealer display that contains more than $1,000 in product, along with product descriptions. Pro Armor employees at first constructed each display by hand, but due to the display’s popularity, it will now move to full production. The display ships to dealers pre-assembled. The dealer only adds the number plate.

Seizmik was displaying several new products, including a lightbar consisting of four individual LED lights mounted on a pre-runner-style lightbar mount and designed to fit a wide range of vehicles. It can mount on roll cages or even front bumpers. The lightbar emits 3,240 lumens and comes with all clamps, harness and switch necessary for mounting. Suggested retail is $379.

Seizmik also was displaying framed doors for mid- and full-size Polaris Rangers that can accommodate any roof or windshield. What’s more, they ship in a regular UPS box. Suggested retail is $599.

Also new is a grab handle with fabric-fastener straps for mounting. It retails for $29.99.

Streamline’s new Reflex Pro Perch ($139.95 retail) has a folding lever design that the company claims is unbreakable. The perch and bar clamp are made from 6061 billet aluminum perch and come with a nylon bar sleeve. The forged aluminum lever blade is available in anodized black, blue and red. The pivot bolt is pre-drilled for safety wire, and the cable adjuster knob is “oversized.” A hot start is optional.

Also new is a Reflex Brake Lever ($59.99 retail) with a likewise unbreakable folding lever design that works with the OEM master cylinder. The forged aluminum lever blade comes in anodized black, blue and red.

Both the perch and lever come with a five-year warranty. Combo packs are also sold.

Streamline also just released Factory Oversized Brake kits for most late-model four-stroke MX bikes.

A rep for UTVTech said that Tucker Rocky now stocks its entire lineup, taking on about 120 new part numbers. One such new product is Pro-Tek HSS Rocker Sliders for the Polaris RZR 800. They come in powder-coated white or black and retail for $629.95. UTVTech also makes the sliders for the Polaris RZR XP 900.
