    HI,

    On such short notice it may be hard to get a pipe......

    I can't recall where their shop is but user Easy Rider is somehow affiliated with Deane at Pipe line (SP?) manufacturing....They are in CA someplace and they do make pipes.

    If you guys still race a video would be cool!

    Hope this helps you.

    Good luck with that...you'll need time to set up the pipe and tune properly.

    If you don't lose your bike to your bro, you guys might wanna try racing
    on a real track on Saturday April 13th at Grange Motor Circuit near Victorville.

    The 2 stroke Pro class has cash money at stake and the Amateur class
    has one of those very cool aluminum frames with the gas tank built in
    donated by Rob and Gregg at Piston Bikes in Simi Valley.

    If you lose maybe your bro will let you borrow your old bike for the race? :D

    HI,

    I think this is who I was thinking of.....

    Pipelyne Mfg
    385 Lincoln Avenue
    San Jose, CA 95126
    (408) 279-2307

    They may be a little far tho......

    Also,

    I was thinking....How long of a race were you guys planning (what type of terrain etc)?

    If he is running stock and the terrain is fairly level (assuming you both have roughly the same power output since you said he was running stock)....Maybe you can suggest a longer run on flat terrain and use a smaller sprocket to win by gearing?.....his engine will be buzzing away w/ a 44T and you'll pull away from him!....(like running the Daytona 500 in Overdrive VS first gear).

    I think that could be how you beat him without worrying about getting a pipe (NOTE: engines can only rev so high before they blow so even if could get the added power of a pipe it still wouldn't do too much good if your sitting there buzzing away in too low a gear).

    You will win. You are a winner and he is a bum:) Now, with all that positivity in your heart, say your farewell to your bike, just in case... I watched a friend loose his car. If I was a gambling man, I would have lost my drawers, because that car was unbeatable! At least everybody thought so...
    Best of luck to you! Post pics of your new bike after the race..rd.

    Thanks Andy but I think he's from Socal. Best bet is to contact Venice or CCC for parts.
    If I were him, I'd be busting out the dremel, port the cylinder and take some off the head or install a longer spark plug to raise the compression. That way his buddy will think it's still stock. :)

    You don't need to be over 18 to race or ride on the track and of
    course you don't need a drivers license.

    We have had a few 16 year olds racing and there will be a 13 year
    old at the next SoCal Motor Bicycle Race on April 13th.

    If you are under 18 your parent or guardian has to be there to sign
    your waiver.

    Entry fees are $35 pre-pay and $40 pay on April 13th.
    $10 for spectators.

    The minimum age for racing on the track is maybe 5 years old?

    Sounds like you bought the wrong size chain for your sprockets.
