Wanted to say hi (from Ontario, Canada)!

I've picked up an ohvale gp-0 110 automatic last year (the first one in the photo) and been really enjoying the practice.

The community here has been growing a bit over the last couple of years thanks to a road race school (super sonic road race school) that hosts its own mini Superbike championship series as well as the fim minigp Canada series.

Also a couple of local dealers. Ohvale and Kayo... there is also Bucci but they are in the neighboring province. Ohvale Canada also has been hosting its own race series as well.

I haven't raced yet...I still consider myself pretty slow but I might try it (let's see lol). My mentors say that you learn so much from participating in the races even if you are the slowest.

Also, does anyone have experience with swapping the motors on the ohvales? I heard that you can do this for the 110 to 160. I would like to see if this is possible before upgrading.

Welcome! Beautiful bike, never have heard of those before today. I guess the size is pretty close to the X series of Super Pocket Bikes from the looks of it with the 10" wheels. Where are the bikes made?

Not sure on the motor swaps, but I know some that have done 125, 140, and 160 swaps on the X bikes.

Not many, if any one on this forum has an ohvale. The most places i've seen ohvales are in the facebook groups. You should have no probably replacing the engine. They mainly run daytona pit bike engines.

I agree with other racers you should jump in and start racing even if your not the fastest one out there you will improve mutch faster then just running practice laps.

As for the race bikes I really don't know very much about them but I am very interested it would be really cool if you could start some threads and document your progress here I know a lot of members want to race and learn about it but it's really hard for people to find tracks and get into it nowadays.

Same with me. I've mainly seen them on Facebook and Instagram (outside of the school that I train at and the dealership track days... lol).

Main hurdle is getting a price list and parts from the dealership. I'm tempted to buy from the usa because I seen posts for engines, etc. But at the same time I want to support my local dealer.

I'll try again and see. I'm not super mechanically inclined but I would like to learn and do upgrades.

I'll see if I can fit at least one of the races or maybe a few this season. Some of the tracks are not too far (got to check with family/work/schedule/budget first... already committed to 4 to 5 training days with the school, a dirt bike day, and possibly some track training with the full size bikes).

I'll start a thread if I can work with the dealer on getting the parts. And if you want, I can also start a thread on tracks, schools (I know a few in the states that I was trying to go to during the winter last year - all minimotos/minigp), and Canadian minimoto/minigp races. 馃檪
