    I race with the OYL in ohio and was just curious how many people on this site race these things.I used to race 600's but the cost was to much for me.I have just as much fun racing these.Hers a few pics from a practice session on saturday.

    i used to race them. so did bill cole. if you race one it has to be an 80cc. they are a blast to ride and will humble you to try to tame one.

    I've got an NS50 that I'm building up for WERA mini's and True Grits competition. I had a YSR a few years ago but I never could get comfortable with it. The NS50 was comfortable immediately! It's amazing how much fun you can have on these little bikes!!!

    Sounds cool.I have thought of doing the 80 in a YSR frame thing but havent done it yet.There are a few guys in our club OYL (ohio ysr league) that have them.There are also a few 80cc motard bikes that run faster than the YSR 80's.If i do one i mite try and go that route but it wont be till next year.

    I have ran my YSR on the track in Camden, no "official" racing, just a few of us on our YSRs. Tight track in the back section, but very challenging. I held off the next guy for quite awhile until he was finally able to make a pass back there. Got home, checked my tire pressure (was getting very vaque feel from front end...) and was surprised to see 55psi!!!! Not quite sure how that happened, also found the front wheelwas bent badly....DOH! No wonder I had such a hard time :D

    Can you let me know when you will be running at Camden next?

    Thanks!

    well we were supposed to race there again SEPT. 7th but that date fell on the same weekend as the east coast national in new york os that race got cancelled.Do you guys still have your YSR's? If so i know the track is open for practice alot maybe we could get together and go ride there sometime soon.

    Yes, I still have my YSR, but it is not currently running, hasn't for about 7 years now. I *thought* I had broke the crank, and just never got around to fixing it yet, but actually found out just the other day, it was only the flywheel nut had fallen off..... yes i know, I am a complete IDIOT. In all the time the YSR sat there, the gas tank has now rusted inside and I bet the carb is a mess...

    I plan to get it going this year though, so we might get to ride yet! :D

    which dave?

    Did you race last year? I ended up selling mine and am racing endurance w/ wera this year. They were fun, I just needed the speed. I ended up spending money on racing anyway so I figured I'd stick w/ the big bikes.

    I have brake pads for ysr's. If you or anyone you know is interested, email me. nancy@vesrah.com

    Where do you guys buy most of your parts?

    Mark used to race a ysr, I think that's where he gets his goofy riding style.

    I bought a YSR when I was 15, as it was the only way to ride legally on the street. Since selling it for my FZR at 16, I've always missed my little blue smoker. What type of costs are involved in renting a track/insurance/whatever. I've got a couple friends here talking about buying YSR's or pocket bikes. Don't know where to go about getting track time, or competing against others.

    BTW, I sold my YSR in 91 for only $800, the price I paid in 90. DAMN! If I only knew then...

    Where do you live? i know of several track but i need to know where your from so i can put you in contact with the right people/tracks in your area. Bikes are still about 800$ to 1800$ depending on where,when you buy and what kinda shape its in.If your looking for a race bike BUY A RACE BIKE not a stocker.Its alot more money to turn a stocker into a racer than what you coulda bought a nice race bike for.
