I propose an F3 rule change in line with the AMA Supermini rules.

112cc 2-strokes
150cc 4-strokes

That way maybe us 2-stroke guys can have a fighting chance against all those damned 150Rs! :D
Hey, I don't recall you being any closer to those 150's when you had your 105 kit :lol:

your generator would cost more than i payed originally for my KTM. what have you done to your front forks? do they dive alot under brakes. i see you have the moto-master of berigers on the 17's.

i like it how with all the money spent on the bikes, you use a weights plate as the tent anchor.

does the steering dampener make your riding better. (lap times)

The weight plates I use for work (land surveyor) to rest on my tripod legs on windy days. They just happen to work really well for holding down the canopy. :D

The forks do dive a little on really hard braking. I could dial in more compression damping, but the bike feels pretty good to me as is. Braking is one area that I've been working on. I've been concentrating on NOT braking so much and just carrying more corner speed. That's the biggest lesson learned for me so far with the 2-stroke, you have to carry corner speed and stay on the pipe. Unlike the 150Rs and the other 4-strokes that can just motor out of corners, ours need RPM and momentum. This is my first season racing, so every time out I'm learning and learning. This is all new to me. You'll find that gearing is critical, too. One or two teeth on the rear can make a real difference.

The forks and shock have been sprung for my weight (200 lbs.) and revalved for supermoto (i.e. jumps). The suspension tuner asked specifically if this was a pavement only bike or if it was going to see dirt sections, too. He sets them up differently.

I went with the damper because when I started this project last summer I wasn't sure if I was going to go with 12s or 17s. I already had a damper (shared with my street bike) and I was taking the frame down to bare metal to prime and paint it. The damper mount is a weld-on deal, so it was the perfect time to do it while I had a bare frame. Honestly, with the 17s the bike is pretty stable and I'm not sure it's necessary. With 12s, I would absolutely want the damper.

And yes, that generator was as much as I paid for my bike initially. But it also runs the refrigerator when the power goes out, the tire warmers on my big bike and most importantly, the microwave in my work truck!
