wow, what a post. I own an EX Alessi mini four-stroke. Yamaha and BBR built a TTR125 with 150 big bore, BBR swingarm, PC exhaust, and YZ85 suspension. Alessi raced it and won a title in Texas when he was racing for Yamaha.

I believe the confusion is promoter, owner of the series and sanctioning Body. Just like Supercross, the AMA is still the sanctioning body and handles scoring, tech and enforce and possibly writes the rule book. Outdoor Nationals used to have individual ... more »

Check out the handlebar switch, looks like a map and possibly a traction control switch. 23 might just have what it needs to be better, map switch, traction control, suspension updates, maybe lighter exhaust, maybe linkage, maybe new head or lower profile ... more »

Added reply in a thread Yamaha is developing electronically controlled steering dampener 3/24/2022 4:59 PM

I think some of you are missing the point. Some of the best turning bikes are very unstable at speed and twitchy. Some of the most stable bikes at speed don't turn well. Now if you can set up a chassis to turn amazing but the electronic damper will tune ... more »

Marty Smith switched from a works bike to a production based bike back and forth to avoid it getting "Claimed" I think that was 1975 or 1976?

Started new thread Building a KX450 that is better than SR and for less 1/6/2022 6:17 PM

Started this project before the SR was announced but I was already all-in and the wheels were in motion. As it turns out, my "Factory Replica" looking KX450 actually cost slightly less than the suggest lists of the SR, but there are more custom ... more »
