Located in Thailand - Tyga Performance has, without a doubt, been one of the key vendors for us throughout our involvement with the NC-30s and NC-35s. Paul Pearmain and Matt Patterson are the key people at Tyga (I am sure there are a few more behind the scene players). They are definitely passionate motorcycle enthusiasts that have a great background in the motorcycle industry. With Matt being the hands-on technical guy, we bounce ideas off each other all the time. His knowledge-base is tremendous and a very valuable source for us.
Tyga was the first company we were in contact with, supplying us with our first batch of NC-30s. Tyga originally started out with two-stroke performance products and then parts for the trusty NCs. We have watched their products mature over the years as they became more and more involved. Some of their latest products are just amazing. They fill an otherwise dark and empty hole regarding the nearly extinct Grey Market 400s and Two-Strokes all over the world.
Tyga manufactured the bodywork for our original NC-30 order. I believe the molds were originally created for our bikes. The bodywork was well priced, and like any other after-market fiberglass product, there was some fitting and tweaking to be done. I haven't found a company yet that makes a "perfect" set of bodywork as far as that goes. However, over the years, the fit and finish has continued to improve and is as good as any other glass we have seen for these bikes.
During my discussions with Paul at Tyga, I expressed the interest in fairing brackets, rearsets, subframes and other various components to lighten the bike up as much as possible. Shortly after, they released most of the parts I had requested. To me, this was a statement about them: they do what they say they will. Since then, Tyga has continued to develop and release excellent performance-related products for the NC-enthusiast in a manner that no other company in the world has. For this, we are quite happy, and grateful, for the support they do offer.
One of the products I am most amazed at is the kit Tyga offers to update the looks of the older design of the NC-30 and NC-35 to the more modern look of the RC211V MotoGP bikes. The kit offers everything you need from the fairings, windscreen and seat section, right down to the light-weight subframe and battery box necessary to mount their tail. For what you get, the price is quite reasonable as well. Nothing beats the looks of the latest RC211V. G-Force will have a fleet of these bikes come next season.
The most recent additions to the Tyga Performance line-up of products has been their exhaust systems. They started with a 3/4 system that was intended for street bikes. Then, they got serious with their full-system. This system has evolved into a top-performing system that I recommend to anyone wanting serious performance, excellent quality and workmanship and great sound at an affordable price. If you don't mind loud, they even offer a MotoGP-style megaphone muffler called the "mini-maggot". This muffler definitely gets attention, and is worth a couple of extra hp as well.
G-Force is currently developing a new twin exhaust system, with undertail exit for the rear cylinder bank. Once this system is optimized, we have been discussing with Tyga to have them make, and offer, the systems to go with their RC211V body kits. This should be done this winter with the Gen 5.2 EFI bike.
