That ESR 325 uses one, which I think is the 325 guy you're talking about. There's no way that thing runs too terribly well on the stock stroke. It's prob like an 85B x 66S engine, rough guesstimate. I mean, if it did, I'd be surprised. At least this ... more »

You can make one. Buy a second swingarm and precision cut the top of the arm parts off. It could be done very carefully with an angle grinder if you're good with one and make a guide line, because you'll have a built-in jig. Enlarge the holes for the ... more »

Of course it has. By me, for one. Remember the works Yamaha swingarms from 17 that Roman Febvre, Reed, and all of JGR ran? That's what I ran. Think I gave it to my friend

This took A YEAR to get. I feel like I've been hooking and jabbing in the trenches for some of these parts. The pipe took 10 months, the suspension took 4 months, and the ignition took a year. I don't ever want to hear a single person in this service

Added reply in a thread How to clean carbon out of old pipe? 9/15/2020 1:01 PM

You could just run a castor with a 450° flashpoint, you'd never have carbon, but you'd have to hang the pipe up and let it drip out of the stinger for a week. That's what I did with my road going twostrokes in Japan. 12K miles on an NSR, the pipes are ... more »

I need to measure it, it's midway between standard 250 between 500 stingers. It looks stepped too. Rich Daly used a computer sim for it. He did the pipe on Sharkey McFarlands MXdN YZ360. I think that one aussie guy has that bike. Last name is Hollywood, ... more »

Guest rider doesn't indicate racer. To me, guest rider sounds like someone who rides, who everyone knows, who will be doing just that...sitting under the tent.

This is going to sound kooky, but bear with me Lead fishing weights are harder than the carbon, and softer than the pipe. They're cheap as hell in little bags. I'll bet about 200 of those inside the pipe concentrated around the first turn shaken vigorously ... more »
