What about Marv? The guy was absolutely ripping and if not for a bad gate pick for the main and a small mistake in stalling the bike, he probably would've won the damn thing!

Added reply in a thread How well does powdercoat hold up on AL frames? 2/11/2019 3:05 AM

The prep work is most important also the quality of powder. You want to make sure you use the right media to blast the part, it should feel rough and scratchy so the powder has something to bite into once it melts and cures. I've had plenty parts powder ... more »

They KX 125's had strong motors back in the day. If any bike to have that kind of power band I would say the 97 YZ 125, that bike had great low end and much more mid and top then the older 84-85 KX's. Yamaha's first few year case reed motors had very ... more »

Yes, everything that could be powder coated is, cases, frames, hubs, brake pedal, pull rods etc. The cases took a lot of time and prep work but it was worth it and yes I get yelled at lot. “That bike needs to go back in the shop TODAY” LOL

Great job on the rebuild, coming out awesome!! I really wanted to do the 82 RM250 but found an all original 125 in decent shape and couldn't pass it up. A little story on a 82 RM250. Back in 82-83 myself and a couple friends were squirrel hunting in

I think Kawi and Tomac gets it done this year!! Should be fun to watch Zack mixing it up and running up front.

I'd still buy the Honda. I like good handling. Sounds like you might have to ride it like a 125, but that's OK in my book!

Added a comment about feature 2019 Vital MX 250 Shootout 12/11/2018 1:23 PM

M.L. great breakdown of all the bikes!!! As it is now the Honda will never have low end as strong as the other bikes. It has the shortest stroke, slowest piston speed per revolution, less stroke leverage and large intake valves. It takes a little more rpm's to get the air moving, it is what it is. More mid and top seems to be the new trend for 250f's and Honda with a great chassis, suspension and new motor is moving in the right direction as is the rest of the bikes in the class. Even Yamaha loss a little bottom and gained more up top this year. Good to see Suzuki made engines changes. People complained when Honda didn't have any top end and now probably the same people complain it doesn't have a lot of bottom end. People need to quit complaining as much and start practicing and riding more. LOL

The Belzona you want to use would be 1391, 1391T, or 1593. There are used in full immersion environments and higher temperature applications, that's the key. Pull off adhesion strengths are between 4,000 to 6,000 depending on which one. Temperature range ... more »
