    Late notice, but OMRL opens their season this Sunday at Circleville Raceway Park, outside Columbus, OH You can race anything from a 50 to a 650, and there is plenty of practice time before racing starts, and after racing ends. http://ohiominiroadracingleague.com/ is the updated website for the...

    Average high in January is only 50, so I'm crossing my fingers for that or better... I've never been down there. In the summer I race 1-2 times a month locally, so it's hard to rationalize losing 12 hours each way driving down when I have PIRC within 2 hours, and circleville about 2.5 hours...

    I've ridden with NJ MiniGP at PIRC, but never been to an event of there's that wasn't co-hosted by OMRL. I may try to do their endurance race this spring. I have time off to do the Herrin Compound race in mid January. NJ is closer, but more expensive. Their fees are more expensive, and the...

    I've been doing the kart track racing for the last two or three years now. I don't get nearly enough seat time on my street bike, so I figured having a newer race bike, and then using my existing XR as a spare would be the smarter decision. Streeting the 100 will primarily be so that I can...

    The Sunl i was looking at has sold, but someone else has a Lifan up for sale as well. It all may be for nothing though, because i am supposed to meet a guy on Friday to trade my 2000 Suzuki Katana 750 for his 2011(??!!!!!!) CRF100. I'm really hoping that works out, and then I can street my...

    I'm eyeing a "Sunl" 200. I know the internet is full of horror stories, but I also found a parts warehouse in IL that seems to stock basically anything I would need at a reasonable price. For a light-duty trail/street/kart track bike at a super cheap price, I'm considering it. Am i crazy?

    ...you must have been doing your on-road riding wrong or something :P I am really itching to get a dual-sport myself. Can't find any takers to trade me a small-bore enduro (or another XR100) for my GSX-F 750 :( I just don't ride the big bike enough, and the small one takes up less space...
  8. The Herrin Compound 2015/2016 "frostbite" series

    Next round is December 12 and 13. I can't make that, but I'm planning on attending the January round (weekend before MLK day - free travel day!) This will be my first trip down.

    You didn't say what part of NY, but there is (or was) a new body stylce XR100 (so 2001-2003) for sale for $500 in good shape outside of Cleveland. the seller claimed it needed carb work that he was incapable of performing. I want to snatch it up, but my garage is already full, and I don't...

    ice riding is a whole other animal. I've not done it, because I haven't had the motivation to properly prepare my bike... That said, you will need to buy ice studs and stud up a set of tires. the 'kits' include an insert to protect the tube from the studs poking through. Or you can get...

    You can have it measured by laser. GMD computrack(?) is the company I've heard of used before. You would probably have better luck asking that on the WERA forum though. The other option is to rebuild the bike, and you will feel it right away if it's not straight... That is probably the more...

    Didn't realize you had responded to my post from 6 months ago. Just requested the time off to hit the January round (Thanks MLK Day!). What gearing do stock XR's run w/ you guys? I have 13, 14 and 46,48,50 (probably). Watching the F3 video, it seems like people spend a fair amount of time...

    Changing the frame WILL affect title status. The frame IS the bike. You can literally take a CBR 1000 engine, and if you can fit that into an XR100 frame, the bike is registered as an XR100. If you're just talking about modifying the XR650 frame, then that will not change your title status.

    The Baja designs kit looks good, but it is way too rich for my blood. I need to figure out how to re-wrap my stator and get that set up to provide power. From there, the parts are cheap.

    where are you located? Some states are really easy to get a street-legal title, some are a pain. I'm hoping to pick up an XR100 to convert myself (found your thread searching for info on reg/rec winding, etc.)

    I'm very close to trading my 2000 katana 750 for a 2003 XR100. The 'new' bike would become my race, bike and my 2000 XR100 (old body style, with larger gas tank) would be turned into a street bike. I know someone on this site compiled a "DIY" parts list for a street conversion. Little help...

    that is awesome. I'm not sure i could rationalize a rear disc when the drum locks the wheel already, but I am definitely going to keep an eye out for the parts to necessitate your front disk conversion. Who wants to trade me a CRF for my Katana 750???

    The transit tow feature likely just utilizes more engine braking under load. UHaul trucks actually do that in a primitive way now. I'm sure the transits system is a lot nicer. It actually makes driving an unloaded uHaul kind of dodgy in wet or snowy conditions, because the drive wheels will...

    The OP posted pics of his new Ford Transit. My "sponsor's" van is a diesel extended length sprinter. I was under the impression that all Sprinters were diesel. The Transit has 3 different engine options though: 3.7 V6, 3.5 twin-turbo V6, or 3.2 I-5 diesel.

    race vans are awesome. My teammate and I used our "sponsor's" Sprinter a bunch last year. While it doesn't have the creature comforts of the F150 we were using before that, you can't beat the security of that much enclosed space, or the gas mileage from that diesel. We didn't have a bulkhead...
