Thing is absolutely like new. I just bought it on marketplace where it was listed as a large but unfortunately for me is an XL. Not a single scratch or anything wrong. Guy said he bought it a couple years ago and for whatever reason only wore it for

I have seen pictures of O’Mara on white RM 250s from 88 and 89. I think it was as only for some Italian races like Masters of Motocross at Maggiora or Fast Cross where he would be helped out by the Chesterfield Suzuki team who normally ran white Suzuki’s

It had to be Duane Summers. He was part of that era of Cagiva desert racers and later went on to road racing.

Added reply in a thread Weird YZ490 build 10/5/2020 10:53 PM

Early 90s...might have been 1990. But I remember MXA did a story on a 2 wheel drive bike, I’m sure it was a YZ 490 and I think it was built by a French company.

That’s right. Jan came to Cagiva in 84 I believe. Before that he worked with Gilera who also had success in the early 80s. Whenever I see a 125 GP start photo from 81/82 the red Gileras are always in the front. Also they did come with the WP 4054 Upside ... more »

Cool video. I’ve got a a few Cagivas (88 125/250) and I also restored an 83 125. My interested started in 88 when I was 9 at the Seattle SX. Mike Healey put his WMX 250 in the main and finished around 7th...I thought it was the coolest bike in the pits. ... more »

I’m confused by the wording....it doesn’t state tracks are closed...just “no events” I don’t know if a track just being open for a practice day would be considered an event? But surely something like Devols Top Gun coming up Labor Day weekend is an event.... ... more »

Man that brings back some great memories for guys our age. What a killer era to have raced 80s. Huge classes back then no matter where you grew up or if you were a 80 Beginner or Intermediate...I got the 87 YZ for Christmas in 88 as a new leftover. Stared

Cool shot Ping, I’ll post that in some NW groups and see if the other guys can be identified. Pretty sure 94 was the last year that start was used.

You better check with your wife...she probably has some Pinterest projects you should be working on instead of effing around online looking for more Suzuki projects.

Let’s be real....unfortunately we’d have a hard time getting a team to France in a world without Covid. There’s no chance the US is going to not race Nationals and still send 3 guys to the U.K. in September that haven’t done a outdoor race in a year. ... more »

Just joined the forums after seeing one of your posts about your restored 1995 KTM.
I myself have a 1994, and was wondering if you'd be able to give me any pointers with finding parts, it'd really be appreciated, as I've never done a rebuild before.

They rip and are a great 85 for any kid to learn to go fast on. Everyone seems so hung up on new plastic...but you can find super clean RMs for around 1k while comparative used YZs runs twice that and a used KTM is 3 times the money. The motor is still ... more »
