Yep, I think we paid $1,100 for my new '81 YZ125. 60+ 125 Intermediates would show up on any Sunday.

North Texas tracks use to run split programs in the late 70's and early 80's. Beginner, Novice, vets and minis ran in the morning, and intermediates and experts ran in the afternoon. It worked great because there were full gates of Experts and so many ... more »

Unbelievable Chris. Sounds like a sociopath that should be behind bars.

Looks like your bike to me.

Coolest thread ever! I attended a Bailey school at Lake Whitney before the '81 national and David was assisting Gary with the class. It was a threshold event for my riding. I doubt David remembers, but at the end of day 2, Gary has everyone practicing

Exactly. Germans drink Pilsner beers cold. and most of the local German Pilsners are pretty light. Germans don't drink heavy ales, like those popular with American beer snobs.

Yeah, I made the most of it by doing some pedaling this morning.

Waiting to ride all week to ride, only to get rained out.

I'm sure it could be improved, but it's just a garage queen, and he never rides. I have two other friends that race 03's with our vintage club. The have both gone to Gorr engines with PWK carbs and they look like they work well, although I haven't ridden ... more »

We installed Pro Circuit's recommended jetting, but it was still slow revving and anemic feeling. Just felt gutless, like a huge flywheel weight was installed. I've heard they can be improved, but I haven't personally been down that road.

MXA's description of the 03 engine was spot on in my experience. A friend of mine has a bone stock garage queen 03 with about 10 hours on it. I rode it and it feels just like MXA said their 03 ran. “The CR250’s powerband is its biggest handicap. It’s ... more »

Late 90's. Appears identical to what they are still producing today. They were in Waco then and now they are down by Austin.

No, it's a guy named Keith Peterson. He goes by KPRacing on TT.

Yeah, it was pretty amazing. The part added power everywhere on the curve and at 7600rpm it was +3hp, from 7700-8300rpm it was +4hp, and at 8500rpm it was +5hp.

I have a Lectron gathering dust in my garage. It's a decent carb, but I think a well tuned Keihin PWK is better. That being said, I have a relatively stock 05 CR250 with a 2015 YZ250 carb. I thought it was a big improvement over the stock Mikuni, and

More than likely, your radiators are plugged up with magnesium oxide from the waterpump housing.

If it's been a while since you've been to River Valley lately, do yourself a favor and check it out again. The track prep has been superb and the jump faces have been holding up all day long. I recommend getting there early because it does get busy.

Added reply in a thread Whats the most dangerous track in your state 8/10/2016 6:56 AM

I agree. There isn't a single North Texas track that I would call "dangerous". The DFW area tracks that have the most injuries are also the ones that are closer to town and get the largest crowds. It stands to reason that if track A gets 200 riders for ... more »
