I agree with this guy above. The only hardpack tire I ever liked were Bridgestone M22/23 and only for blue groove. I'm partial to the old K490 front and 695 rear. I loved those.

Wouldn't know how to turn it on, Program it, or anything. When it comes to 2 strokes, lets be frank. I had a F1 style holeshot button in 2003 OEM. It was actually called a Holeshot button. Alot of this stuff is such old tech elsewhere, to the moto side, ... more »

It was time 25 years ago when it was cheaper. What 300 bucks then. No biggy.

The problem is I have actually bought them since the late 80s and when you drop 30-35K on 2 engines multiple times, and single engines even more times, you kinda gain this thing called real life knowledge. Afterall, blowing an ear off a 1,000 dollar ... more »

Actually there is lots of on track gains. Lots. Outboards, sleds, etc all usually have far more power especially on top. I can run a 52 mm throttle body with no loss of low end. Outboards even post their HP numbers and the EFI Vs Carbed models was usually ... more »

The guy said the carb knows what the pipe temp is. Technically, the engine is a simple air pump. With reed valves, that carb or throttle body is supposed to be sealed from any back pulse from the pipe through the crank case. That is what the design is ... more »

Enclosed volume denoted by blue. Reed valve is a closed door. With a case reed engine, without reeds all the intake and reverse exhaust pulse would end up in the airbox. Even with a cylinder port reed valve, the whole function of the reed valves is to

Well, I own 21 2 strokes, 2 with turbos and one with Carbon bottle full of NO2. And even one Turd(IMO) 4 stroke with a turbo timbersled. I'm pretty sure I've built more engines than he is old. In fact, I'm turboing a built 860 twin tonight.

This guy is so behind the times or just trolling with useless information. Reed valves close the door. Thats why case reed engines have to have Reed valves. To close the door to the carb or throttle bodies, otherwise all the intake charge would be in ... more »

Oh, I gotcha. My current sensor reads 02 and EGTs. I don't really care much about 02 readings. All I ever have displayed is EGTs. Most are both open and closed loop now.

This Derek guy is either ill informed or trolling or really just guessing. Early 2 strokes had one airbox sensor that read everything that Bob wrote, minus the 02 sensor(Not needed really) but you need a water temp sensor also because a hot or cold engine
