Oh, Now we get it. He's gonna drop a Gsx1300 up in there.

Somewhat. I am sure they are aware of the rules. I also think Kenny would love to stomp that thing around Ironman, and would love even more to drop the mic for this championship season on the podium aboard a "vintage" decade-plus old bike.

Any CR250 frame dating back to 1985 (even the maligned '97) is a HUUUUUUGE upgrade in MX handling/suspension over an Xr400. So I totally get that one for people who like the 400 motor. For this: A YZ250F chassis is a massively inferior handling motorcycle ... more »

But only if our chicks set new rules that we are only allowed to use half our dick displacement to make it all fair for an overweight replacement dude...

I have a Pro-Circuit Pipe (removes ATAC) and a prestine matched carb, if you are interested in going in that direction. I really don't want /expect a lot for either. Message me if interested

If you are selling '87 Cr250 that isn't super ratty for that price in NorCal, please message me. That is still considered an all-time great bike (could still compete for local wins), and that range is more reasonable. You probably could obtain quite ... more »

Altering a VIN on an existing vehicle is illegal in the US, federally punishable up to 5 years in prison. They may be able to apply for a new VIN as a "reconstructed vehicle", but it probably would list as the same year as the original vehicle per most ... more »

Man this has been going on forever. And I totally get it. I recall TriBSAs that dropped superior-powered Triumph twins into svelt, light BSA frames. But this is more of a BSumph -- he took the worse handling, bulkier chassis, and put the lower powered ... more »

And it's a different chassis that has widely been opined as inferior handling to the '05 YZ125 frame. But that chassis design does offer considerable advantages with regards problematic intake-tract designs on linkaged single shock fuel-injected motorcycles, ... more »

Yamaha monoshock, forward mount, and catilever shock vintage mxers have pretty high leverage ratios compared to the bikes pictured, though still low compared to modern bikes.

Everything bends when you jump a vintage mxer.

Added reply in a thread Steel frame stretch a real concern? 8/25/2016 8:59 PM

Because the swingarm leverage ratio on (non forward-mount) twin shocks is so low, they do almost no work at all compared to modern shocks.

I will say this: His energy drink sponsor seems to have got him up on more gas station posters and refrigerator decals than I have seen with any other rider this year.

Yeah, it's like finding a Chevy Vega GT in showroom condition. You can appreciate the novelty of finding it -- even to the point of almost wanting it -- but then you remember what it actually is.

They fixed the dreadful handling by then, but they still pinged nonstop and vibrated like a paint shaker.
