Wish I still had my RD200

Maybe I'll get a Yam stroker to refurbish next, as my Z650 is pretty much done. Just refining the tune.

Im guessing its not too neighbor friendly

Kick start needs pushing on its shaft a little more.


I had a kwak that wasnt neighbor friendly too,straight through pipes on a Z1300. Made am awesome noise.I had planned to restore it,but bits were mega expensive and worse i couldn't reach the floor other than to one side and on tip toe.A recipe for disaster with a 750lb bike so got rid.
Smooth as silk though....

Done a few 4 strokes but they dont do it like 2 strokes do.

I did the original wheelie machine but hated it.Sounded like a lawn mower and if you didnt get it right starting they would bite back and break your leg.Too much hard work for me...








Did one of these too,the wet dreams big brother.Its now sat on top of the roof of someones workshop as an ornament.Prob best really

Yeah, I liked the simplicity of two stroke motorcycles. But not had one for a few years...

Now theres an idea,i strip in the garage,build in the dinning room

Worst ive done is filled the room with smoke after i took the hammer to the end of the crank removing it from the casing and ended up mushrooming it without noticing.Screwed up the engine as the crank end sits tight in an oil seal.

Realization setting in, you screwed up
