Going to try and I have an '04 TTR125.
100 for Mini-50
And working on the 150R to go to Mini-80
Well then this is for you!
Unfortunately, want and afford are too entirely different things. :tut:
I plan on running the nsr50
and mabe a rs something
I have 2 125 pitbikes and am on the hunt for an xr80 to race up here in Calgary. To much fun to not race these little bikes.
KLX110, but thinking about buying an xr or crf. KLX is a great bike, but more stuff available for the Hondas.
The 100 is hard to beat for plentiful upgrades. The only limiting factor is your budget and imagination.
What's that want to make 20+ hp out of a 100? Google "Takegawa" and "Kitaco"
GL in Formula 1?
If it wouldn't take 4 months to safety wire, and get a baffled look at tech inspection I'd be all over it!
Unfortunately the 100 (and 80) motor just doesn't produce power per cc when built like the horizontal Hondas. You'd be hard pressed to get an honest 20hp at the rear wheel from one, even with Tak and Kitaco's help without some SERIOUS head and bottom end massaging. On the flip side the larger diameter tires and better rubber make getting around them a royal PITA even when I'm packing more HP.
This is my baby for comparison. I'm still plotting a new motor for it after grenading this one spectacularly during practice for an NEMM race in Maine.
There's always a trade off. The stock head is the biggest limitation with the 100/80s. The horizontal engined bikes are a bit to small overall for my husky proportions
Seems like there's more opportunities for close XR100 racing now too as lots of places have well policed SuperStock or SuperSport 'esqe classes for them than traditional pitties. With clamped rules the effort required to make fire breathing vipers out of the vertical mills goes away... I need a 100 to add to my stable I think.
I'm running a ysr with a xr 100 kitaco 145 kit. So where is everybody racing???
Holy shit, you guys are for real about this.
I had planned on running a couple of rounds for fun but it looks like I'd get killed on my "79 Suzuki OR50....yes....I'm serious about running Mini's with it. Its my pit bike. It was at the GNF but I blew a crank seal while tooling around.
Here's your competition(not an actual pic of mine but close). GRRRRRR!!!!
Just wait till I get sticky 14" tires and low bars on this bitch. lol
No worries, my 100 looks serious, but I'm old fat and slow. The OR 50 will make good backmarker competition for me.
Your a pussy if you put low bars on it. You should also have to wear this:
That's a sweet bike. I wonder what the weight is on that. Probably about equal to the RS chassis, but I'd give my RS145 the advantage in braking and suspension.
Of course there's WERA Mini's. The first couple gears are so low on the stock XR tranny I bet you could gear that thing to the moon and it would run pretty good on the big track. Probably wouldn't compete with the 150's but it would be fun to try.
