Barry Moore of Phoenix Tools racing and motocross trainer and coach Dickie Dye have joined forces
and tied up an exclusive deal with American based tuning company “Rocket Pipes “ to import not only their
superb range of motocross exhaust systems, but also their complete engine packages which are currently being
used by many of the top teams in the USA.
Making every effort to gain an advantage on the rest of the field, US Rocket boss Don Leib (father of GP
runner Michael Leib) has been working with Dickie on a package for 2014 for both the CRF250 and CRF450R
Honda’s. Dickie has drawn on his knowledge and experience not only of motocross but also of building fourstroke race engines for the factory jet ski teams for many years in the USA.
The CRF450R components have been developed over the past year using the 2013 CRF450 model and the
resulting “Rocket” pipes, ECU and engine tuning package is a proven winner at every level.
DICKIE DYE – “Working on our CRF450 project was quite easy as we have a bike and there is loads of
information available. Developing a kit for the new 2014 CRF250R was a little more difficult as this is a
completely new machine from the floor up and while the new bikes are not out (in the UK) for a few weeks
yet, we have been gaining as much information as we possibly can from the USA and around the World via the
internet, it’s amazing what information is out there… We have been burning the midnight oil, using a 2012/13
bike as a prototype and have come up with a superb engine package, tailored ECU mapping and a fantastic (and
attractive) Rocket twin exhaust system which will suit the new 2014 model with a little fine-tuning”.
BARRY MOORE – PHOENIX TOOLS MOTOCROSS TEAM OWNER – “We have all been working
hard behind the scenes over the past weeks and for 2014 we will hit the tracks flat out… We are delighted to be
importing the new Rocket pipes and motor kits and Dickie will be offering a complete fitting and set-up service
to all our customers. All our Rocket racing products are tried and tested and we have a package for riders of
all abilities, not just for Honda’s CRF250 and 450 but hopefully (once final testing has been carried out) for
Kawasaki, Yamaha and Suzuki also.
Most of our preliminary work for the UK market has been carried out on Honda bikes and this is where we
know we can make a mark on the UK motocross circuits. The product has been tested. It is reliable, it works, it
is innovative, “trick-looking” and competitively priced and with Dickie Dye providing a personal sales, set-up
and after-sales service, what more could you ask for?
The Phoenix Tools Racing Team will also be at most of the major National motocross events next season and
will be on hand to offer a technical race support service to all our customers.
We have a 2012/13 CRF250R (see Rob Grist photo’s) which we have been using as a test bike and prototype
and having had so much success with this machine, we will also be marketing a CRF250R twin Rocket pipe and
motor mod` “Facelift Kit” for your pre-2014 CRF250.
The first consignment of new Rocket pipes and motor kits will be in the UK in the next few weeks and shortly
we will have a team CRF250R (when they are available) and CRF450R which prospective customers will be
able to test ride by appointment”.
