Anyone that replaces spokes with solids has just agreed to getting punched in the face.

So if I put Carbon Fiber rims on instead of heavy steel spoke you would hate on me?

Yamaha gave them a brand new WR450 offroad bike to kick things off with and Roland Sands decided to turn it into an “asphalt ripping, supermoto weapon” for Ben Spies.
Sands also gained access to the Yamaha race department for the build and commissioned, esteemed engine tech, Bob Oliver to giving the restricted engine some more power.
The GYTR cylinder head, cams, K&N air filter and re-worked carburetion were done to really wake up the power delivery on this machine. Trevor Kemp, marketing manager for Yamaha’s GYTR accessory program, hooked up Sands with every bolt-on product they could throw at this bike. From the exhaust system to hand guards to all the little billet oil plugs and Lightspeed carbon fiber bits.
Roland himself came up with the GP-inspired blue burst scheme and ZLT printed it for him.
Race Tech provided the suspension and installed Gold Valves and re-springing the front and rear and Sands is confident Spies will enjoy how the bike handles.
A problem was hit when it was discovered SDG don’t make a stock replacement WR seat, but they cut one down to make a custom step seat and covered it with their sticky kevlar traction.
The front Brembo brakes were supplied by Yamaha’s race department, they happened to have a ’spare’. Sands then used a caliper bracket from QTM to install the Brembo in place.
Whilst down at QTM, Sands spotted some Talon pegs, so they where taken and installed along with a set of Easton EXP handlebars, risers and grips.
The wheels are from Performance Machine and are custom versions of the race-weight Assault wheels finished in Roland Sands own Black Ops finish, with Dunlop tyres.
The medium compound (6680) D211GP up front and D209GP out back are, in Sands own words, “sure going to keep ol’ “Elbows” hooked up”.
