Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Whats top speed on this beast? Also whats your sp[ecial premix? That motor looks clean clean clean !!
Top speed is unknown for now.. it cruises at around 40 km/h with less than 1/4 throttle, and feels like it wants to pull out from under me when I open it up from there. On the motor, I cleaned up the intake and exhaust ports; the piston skirt has been cut (on the intake side) to allow maximum intake, it has a 'speed' carb and expansion chamber. Stock 44T sprocket, so it'll hill climb a bit better than my beast's 36T. I'm hoping that when I can afford it I'll be able to put a reed valve on it, that'll give me a major performance change I think. The head and jug have been lapped, as well.

As for the mix, this one's still at around 24:1, due to step up to 40:1 soon. (I use synthetic 2-stroke oil, HP Interceptor I think it's called).


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
