Shane,

Anyone who has played with these little bikes know that with the stock dispacement they won't hang with even a stock YSR. I have spoken with a few of the TMGP guys and if enough people show, they will make our own class. I thought about talking them into letting us run with the Stock YSR's but after thinking it over, I decided it wasn't worth bringing up. We would be out there with them anyway.

Later, Eric

Phil,

How many actual 50's show up? Mine has some mods but has not been overbored and would not keep up with the 80 kits. How many heats and such would I be able to run? You also mentioned that some of you would be at the next TMGP race. Are those stock displacement or do they have overbore kits as well. A couple of friends and I will probably show up for that either way. When and where is the next TMGP event?

Shane,
Is the little 50 still a stock bore?? If so what sort of other things have you done?? Better yet what do you plan on doing with it??

Thanks

well eric this little xr is probably as far from stock as you can get. the only xr parts remaining are the frame and the engine cases. to see the bike i'm talking about go to "classichondausa.com" thats where i work now. we are the distributors for kitaco and takagawa race parts for the usa. the little bike dyno tested at a whopping 18.7 hp, pretty good increase from stock 2.6 with only bolt on parts.

For those of you who don't know Blair, he is The Man, when it comes to racing XR50's. The Hot Shoe National races were held in conjunction with our arenacross races last season. Blair flat won every single race I saw. When he won the championship at the Guthrie, OK arena, his trophy was taller than him.
The last time I saw him in action was at Kaufman, where he was racing the XR in flat track/TT races. He won 'em.
I understand Blair rides a big bike about as well.

Scott,
Takagawa makes all kinds of parts for the xr 100.
They even have a aluminum cylinder that has ports for a oil cooler, oil cooler optional. You just need plenty of $$$.

Brooks,

I saw Blair and his crew at the Guthrie arena, it was very cool. It made me wish I had my 50 there.

Shane,

One question for you, SLIGHTLY MIDIFIED????? There is nothing slight about that bike. I have been following the classic honda guys on the net for awhile. Have you actually ridden that little beast?? Very cool little bike but I am sure it cost as much as any bike I have ever raced. Hell it probably cost as much as two of them.

My wife says I am busy this weekend so I hope you guys have fun. Make sure and post here or e-mail me other dates, I would love to get involved with you 50 guys.

Later, Eric
