General Two Stroke Talk / KTM Demo Day vs KTM 380SX
« on: July 12, 2012, 09:48:39 AM »
@ YOTA: Your 250 looks awesome!! Did you swap the rear shock for an Ohlins? It also looks like you swapped out the forks too, Showa's? If so, How does this setup compare to the OEM WP suspension?

A full factory YZ125 would cost Yamaha half of what it takes to support a YZ250F for a full season! Look at what Roczen did on a factory KTM 125SX last year after he wrapped up the MX2 championship, in one race he rode the screamer to a fifth place finish and looked smooth and comfortable! Two strokes continue to dominate the off-road world. Look at the top guys racing GNCC, Hare Scrambles, etc... all on two strokes!!! MX needs two strokes, give Privateers a chance to be competitive without going bankrupt on overpriced, overweight, ticking time bombs! AMA/FIM governing bodies need to pull their heads out of their rears and wake up, equal displacement would not mean the death of four strokes, only full gates at races. Privateers would be competitive, different conditions would favor different bikes (ie..2T vs. 4T), it would really revive the off-road and MX motorcycle market, and encourage forward thinking in terms of design an innovation amongst manufacturers!

It's just a popularity contest! I think Mcneil had the best whip, Potter wasn't far behind either. Stenberg wasn't even close to the top three, thus he wins by popularity and his terribly gold colored fonda!!! They may be talented, but Motocross is so much more fun to watch!

Great article! He really spells it out for everyone. I bet he stepped on some AMA/FIM toes with this article! Though I'm sure someone affiliated(on payroll of the big 4) will counter and try to discredit some of his facts about the contracts/deals of the AMA!

That is an awesome bike, always admired the TM's. He rides very well and I really enjoy watching him rail the outside lines!!!!

I like your Ohlins forks! How do they stand up against the KYB SSS forks?

I hope all the big bike manufacturers are listening! A handful of guys put a lot of time and effort into that project, and look what they accomplished! I think this is a giant leap in the right direction for two stroke development! Now, if only the big manufacturers would pull their heads out of their @$$es and put a little effort and R&D towards a project like this, maybe they would come up with some awesome bikes that would sell and bring some life back into the market and revive motorcycle sports all together! I won't hold my breath on that though! It makes too much sense for the big companies to change their ways now! God forbid they make a bike that is reliable, more powerful, lighter, and progressive in design and function! It would kill their four stroke market!
Apologies for the rant! Just my 2 cents!

Stay away from Wiseco!!! rebuilt my KX250 last year with all internal wiseco parts. I thought with wiseco's reputation for their products, mainly pistons, that there bottom end components would be great as well. However, at 38.1 hours from complete rebuild, the main bearings on the crank blew out and shredded my cylinder and piston. Wiseco pistons are great and I stand by them, but anything else they produce I would be very skeptical about. OEM, IMO, is always the way to go for engine components, especially the crank, rod, and bearings. I went with wiseco because of the price difference of the OEM crank, but in the end it would have saved me a lot of money to buy the OEM crank assembly.

Good stuff: Pro Taper contour bars, Pro taper pillow top grips, Easton 1-3/8" fat bars are awesome, pirelli mx extra tires are very durable and last the longest of tire I have run, pirelli mxms tires have great traction but didn't last more than three rides before chunking and losing knobs, Boyesen water pump with super impeller works great and dropped my engine temps by 12-15 degrees F, Maxima Castor 927 premix works awesome and smells great, Twin Air fliters hold up great and work well, Amsoil super tacky air filter oil is great, One indusries Carbon jersey and pants are comfortable and have held up to a year of abuse, Sunline multi-flex pivoting levers are life savers!, CYCRA plastics seem to be more durable than any other brands I have tried, V-Force 3 Reed system has worked well for me!, Dragon Vendetta moto goggles with laminated tear off's are very nice, Fox V2 helmet fits true to size and has lasted several years, RK x-ring chains!, Grip donuts work wellfor me and no blister to this day since using them, Thor moto gloves slip on's don't have a wrist strap and breath very well!, there is alot more, I;m just drawing a blank on the other stuff.

Bad Stuff: Renthal Kevlar grips are not worth the money, they tear just as easily as most other brands and look like crap after the first ride.  Enjoy Graphics, the glue they use will not hold up and will delam after a few rides, make sure your graphics use 3M adhesive!. Kenda tires, did not hold up and were a pain in the a## to mount. Wiseco bottom end kit, blew out the bearings at less than 40 hrs. Tusk Gaskets are crap, go with OEM or maybe Cometic.

2004 Acura RSX Type-S (first car I ever bought, and really enjoyed) 8)
It's an older picture, looked alot better when I got rid of it!

I did a few things to it. Not as much as i wanted or close to where I wanted it to be, but I got back into dirt bikes and then got married. I was forced to choose a hobby and the car took second. Traded the car for a new truck and really regret not just buying a beater truck to put the bikes in!
Anyway here a few things I remember.
TODA Racing Headers 4-2-1
Hayame catback exhaust with Catalytic converter removed
TODA Cams with ECU reflash(i-VTEC engaged at 5800 RPM)
Custom shorty intake/ aircleaner(carbon fiber tube w/ K/N cone type air filter
B&M short throw shifter
Competition Clutch stage for clutch with ultra light flywheel
Work wheels (18x7-1/2, should have run 17x8's, but hindsight is 20/20).
Eibach racing springs with Koni shocks
Front Air dam and rear Type-R spoiler, really just for looks, but hey sometimes you just gotta have it.
front and rear sway bars, front and rear strut bars
JDM honda red emblems
JDM headlight swap
red out taillights
20% tint
Titanium shifter
and there are a few things that I just can't remember right now!

Not the fastest Car off the line but get it up in the RPM's and she would scream!, and man do i miss that V-TEC, almost like riding a two stroke!

I'll be a month and a half out of knee surgery but I am trying to get down there with some friends! Not sure how much I can help though. Losing a good bit of money from the paycheck since I got hurt!

It doesn't look as though you've not been riding for 40 days. You still got your speed, and you're looking good on the bike as well! Good Video too. I blew my knee out about a month ago, so I will not be riding for a several months after my surgery!
Keep making the videos! 8)
