Re: New to little bikes.

My wife is the same way, her and the kids were on vacation overseas last summer, I put cardboard on top the beautiful wood and was working on my avatar GRC GP 2006. I sent photos to my older son with it on the table, somehow see got the photos from him. Months later still ragging about it. My W/C C1, Polini 910 and GRC GP are in my house. I told her I just spent $1,000 rebuilding the engine not putting it in my shed. A week ago humidity was 95%, not good for alum, lol.
Life goes on. I have a full X7 front forks, triple clamps, hydraulic brakes, new 8" rims and tires, all assembled and ready to go, think it has handle bars on the fork tubes. I think I only have the new X7 rim & tire & rear hydraulic brakes. Think I have four X15 front forks, 2 sets also. Have Cateye front fork setup, and rear arms with a jackshaft to power the drive chain on the right side, with a piston port engine. Think they are all 26mm tubes.

Just got home from a weekend in san diego. Went to see a joe rogan comedy show down there and visit a few friends.
I took the monster with just to show to my buddy. Him and his son race midget carts down there. He was trying to convince me to move and take up racing with him but I have too many obligations here. Holy moly, where do get all that stuff? You must just collect parts as they come up and sit on em till you need em eh? I used to do that with dirtbike parts until it becomes overwhelming or I run out of space.lol I found a swingarm off a cr80 in my pile of stuff that I might try to use at some point but so far work on the midi is at a standstill for a while. Got to get some of the ever growing "honey do" list whittled down first. Not to mention both my truck and her 4runner need brakes, tires, ect. Being responsible is as much a burden as it is a freedom. Haha. Love all the ideas and examples though. 👍

Nice..Sounds like you had a blast,,,,,,,,What class midget cars do they run..?

Two trucks are easy to maintain...I have close to 20 to maintain ...….LOL

Being responsible has limited freedoms in my world yet I seem to always be on top of things pretty well because I do as I please and answer to no-one;-not even if she made more $$ than me..

If I want to put the Range Rover in the livingroom its not even a problem....LOL

Lol my wife should take a lesson from yours, lol. Last time I brought a part into the house she flipped. Of course it isnt everyday she would find a honda 4stroke generator engine in the bathtub but sheesh, she acted like I used her crystal to measure battery acid or something. I'll give her credit though, last time we went camping I caught, killed, skinned and cleaned a rattlesnake. Cooked it with honey and sesame seeds and shared with the kids. She's a vegetarian so it must have been unnerving for her to watch.

Re: New to little bikes.

My brother lives in San Diego. I was raised in Long Beach, CA., bet you know where that's at, just had on Indy Car race there, lol. She has got a point, the last time she said work on it out there, it's 32 degrees. Were like the Odd Couple, remember the movie and the TV show, she is the clean freak and I am the slob, lol. She really got ****ed with the GRC-GP BMZ photo when I said that bike is cleaner than your pots and pans. I had the bike stripped to the frame, engine in pieces everything was cleaned 1 piece at a time, rebuilt the engine. Oh, by the way, that billet alum BZM water pump costs $175, that's on the kitchen floor w/ cardboard, she loves it when I do that too, lol.

Lmao. Glad Im not the only one. No offense. I find it odd with my wife only because I am the one who spent the last five years almost every day after work and most weekends remodeling this [email protected]%$ house. But oh well, still haven't pulled the trigger on lopping the top off that jug but I did remove the starter housing and mated the pull start up without it. Also I picked up this little guy today.

Suzuki yes, but its a jr50 2smoker. Tiny little thing. Its not in the greatest shape but nothing I can't fix. The carb was clogged up bad. Haven't had much time to work on it yet. Took the carb to work with me and getting it fixed up in between runs. I run a printing press so I have ten minutes at a time while my helper does his thing.

Re: New to little bikes.

Got more power than a 50cc pocket bike, probably 6 plus HP, CAM2 will know.

Nah not really..An oldschool bone stock 43cc/49cc cag even a pocket dirtbike will pretty much beat one as they dont rev very high......Theyre pretty doscile bikes and only a single speed too...Theres a shifter but its neutral and drive...

They need to be doscile seeings they are entry level super beginner bikes.....Theyre roughly 3hp

I had the quad version in both 2 stroke and 4 stroke......Both were pretty slow with me on them...LOL...

They can be modified but they still dont get very aggressive unless you rip one down and really build it like I did to my PW80 with 1mm overbore with aggressive porting and high compression,,oil injector delete,,hp ignition system,,modified carb/intake/reeds also modified exhaust....I also raised it 4"and added a better frontend with a disc brake also a nice 3 way adjustable rear shock.

Theyre very cool lil cruisers though and Im sure DH526's wife wont be scared of riding it...

Just by looking at its overall condition it was bought by someone who got it cheap and decided to see what it was made of in quick fashion...Usualy when the JR50's are missing their chain means somebody likes to neutral bomb drop the shifter to do wheelies...…..

Id slap a chain on it to make sure the transmission is still good...

Some just dont fathom ever seeing vehicles and autoparts inside a house...Some get quite shocked but if she needed to bring a sick pony in the house Im sure you'd be accomodating…

Eventually all homes need to be upkept and I do yearly maintainance on the outside,spring clean every year and usually re-do the interior every 4 years so It would suck to throw away stuff that looked pristine....LOL

When they get too worn out looking its easier to knock them down and rebuild them....This was my grandmothers then became my mothers house now its divided with 2 brand new homes.....LOL



Im sure your wife was ok with the snake being utilized for food....Im sure if you ever saw what twisted and painful stuff vets have to subject to certain animals you'd probably question yourself carefully before ever really crossing her also to mention actually know the true stiffness of her backbone.......LOL

I know chicks raised on farms where nothing they see shocks them..Not even this....LOL


One time my friend brings his son to one of my old houses where I had a basement full of motorbikes aswell as a motorcycle dyno ...The kid didnt seem impressed....

He pulls out his phone and googles up this guy named Mike Metzger to 1up me....

I proceeded to pull out my scrapbook from the college days back in the mid 90's where I had a motorcycle workshop on the lower level of my townhouse in the living and dining rooms way before that guy gained notoriety on MTV and right around the time the kid was born....LOL

I had a customer who had a bedroom just for his prized possession;- his car...….LOL..It was a Gullwing 54 Mercedes..It won many awards...

He had this specially made lift that raised the car on a carpeted platform up into the room above the garage where there was walls full of pictures and ribbons also shelving full of awards...….

That lil yami 80 looks like a sick little bike. I kick myself all the time for letting my kx80 go. One of the most fun of all my previous bikes. Certainly not the most powerful but for its weight it had some balls. I had an 80s yami 250 4stroke that was a beast too. All white fenders was my indication that it was early 80s at best. It was all hopped up by someone who left it in pieces. I got it for free and with no manual, no google and some basic hand tools I pieced it together and it would spank some two strokes even though it was twice the weight. Both bikes would wheelie in lower gears without popping the clutch (which back then was unlikely). I cant remember how many times I got rolled up by police for ripping around town. Luckily I was like 14 so they'd give me an ear full and make me walk it home, lol. Now all my bikes wheelie pretty easily. Not sure if I just honed my skills or if my mechanic work improved. My crf does it all the way up into 3rd.

You think the chain for the jr50 would by chance be the same size as the x1? 415?

On those Jr50's theres a power reduction plate in the exhaust pipe that needs to be removed....

Theres also a throttle limiter that needs to be removed too...…..

I like KX80's but the KX100's on alky are alot more insane....My KX80 was a full blown race bike that never seen any track time...LOL

This is my 83 YZ80.Its not pretty but it runs like a scalded dog.I call it vintage trash...Its ported aggressively , pumped up on alky and has a custom exhaust with a modded carb..



As you can see its geared for hair-raising heartstopping highspeed fun......LOL


1997 KX80

1988 KX125..Another alky tuned vintage machine


Kawasaki , Honda and Yamaha are my main favorites......Suzuki's are alright even though some models cross referrence to the Kawis...LOL
