Added reply in a thread ebay jets, has anyone used them? 10/13/2019 10:19 AM

Was running a Chinese knock off #165MJ at RBSR on accident, not even sure where it came from.

Added reply in a thread mod 250sx or 300sx kit and why? 10/11/2019 2:55 PM

Built a 300SX back in 2006, and a YZ295. Hard to get top end out of a 72x72 engine, needs more stroke.

Thanks man!

Travis is a beast. I know it freaked Tevin out for a split second. Kind of looks funny when someone is doing back flip next to you.

Added reply in a thread Lectron for RBSR? 10/10/2019 7:22 AM

We didn't run a Lectron on my bike at RBSR (Tapia), just a Keihin PWK AG. Jetting wasn't too bad, and wasn't bogging or doing anything weird. I'm sure we could have dialed it in a little more. Top end had 20hrs and haven't touch anything besides A/S ... more »

Roczen vs Tapia from Livestream and pic of TP199 doing backflip next to Tevin! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ux8Mnxwj9fY

Everyone was there to have fun. I can assure you, everyone there would like to win as well. The fastest guys qualifying times were pretty close 125, 250, 500. So, yet again, HP is not even close to everything. Rider skill is by far the most important

Thanks man, was a lot of work! Was getting a lot of attention in the pits. Felt like a proud bike dad

Well the YZ315 isn't a big bore, and I knew it wouldn't in it's current state, said it many times. Everything you said after that made no sense what so ever.

Added reply in a thread Red Bull Straight Rhythm - Bench Racing 10/7/2019 10:47 PM

It's not apples to oranges, did you see the qualifying times? I was there at the gates, Roczen was faster then Pastrana and Bowers, while they were on a 500. Holding on to 40+ seconds isn't really how it's done, it's a little more technical then that. ... more »

Just stating facts about our setup ie gearing, support, suspension, jetting vs full factory rider. And I have talked to a few insiders about HRC's SX CR250 engines, specifically what McGrath liked vs other HRC backed riders. There are so many factors ... more »

Uncle Ronnie Travis Pastrana + Backflip Solo

Added reply in a thread Red Bull Straight Rhythm - Bench Racing 10/7/2019 11:03 AM

You're mistaking HP, when it's skill and factory support. Roczen has a SX bike, with factory level support,. Tevin had, well me as support, with limited budget, bad jetting, month old fuel, wrong gearing, jetted way too fat, suspension too soft, and ... more »

Then why is it safe to say he made more then 48HP?

Added reply in a thread Red Bull Straight Rhythm - Bench Racing 10/7/2019 9:56 AM

You're saying since Roczen beat Tevin that his bike made more then 48hp? If HP mattered much, the 125’s would be half the ET's. There is a lot more going on then peak HP. My engine was never meant for sx. Huge fww, top end porting, etc. I've heard from ... more »

Added reply in a thread Red Bull Straight Rhythm - Bench Racing 10/7/2019 9:30 AM

No real advantage, just fun that an old clapped out bike I fixed up made it to Rhythm, and got to race head to head with Roczen on a full factory CR250. Didn't cost me anything to do the race.

Added reply in a thread Red Bull Straight Rhythm - Bench Racing 10/6/2019 5:23 PM

Maybe next time you can run your Craigslist fixer upper bike against one of the best SX riders in the world? I can assure you the YZ315 is no joke 😂

Thanks guys! Couple more shots...

Knocked out first round by Roczen, but not complaining. Not many have a build thread on vital and get to see their creation go head to head with one of the fastest SX riders. Had a freaking blast!
