Tom Morgan without a doubt. Very good communication, and will always take the time out of his day to answer questions. He built me a ripper YZ315 stroker that was in Red Bull Straight Rhythm.

Added reply in a thread How much triple clamps are affecting front suspension 11/11/2019 11:44 PM

On my YZ250 with Luxon clamps I run about 7.4ft lbs on upper bolts and 6ft lbs on lower bolts. Because of the Ti bolts and anti-seize you can run lower torque. The Luxon is a 1 lb lighter then OEM as well. Was a little worried the low torque would be ... more »

Tom is the best in the business. He had 3 engines at Straight Rhythm, including mine and they all ripped. Had an issue with the head on a Saturday before Straight Rhythm, sent next day for CA to WI. He got it welded up, reshaped to spec, new billet decompression ... more »

Would like to see that quote, doesn't make sense! He built me a 315 stroker for $2500. Blue printed, ported top and bottom, stroked and balanced, reed valve and carb ported, YZ250X 5th gear.

Did Tom quote you that?

Thanks guys, not really a big deal. Still have plans for bike. Besides Tom Morgan blue printing the brakes, will be doing YZ345 stroker later. It's just bigger bore, but Tom being insanely meticulous, the cases need to be modified for bigger piston.

It's all good, was a cool experience all in all. When I got bike back the front brake was nearly locked up from drag, and top end is toast. Tom sent me a free top end (Tom F'ing rocks) and is blue printing the brakes now! Trying to figure out what else ... more »

Not exactly sure since I did 295 before. Would expect $2500+

Added reply in a thread Tom Morgan YZ315 Stroker (Red Bull Straight Rhythm) 10/23/2019 11:25 PM

He won't be riding my bike again. Very self centered, so I would just refuse if he wanted to. Never even said thanks for letting him borrow bike. Told me he wouldn't change graphics, did at last second and said he would replace them. Now he isn't even ... more »

Since the cylinder was made for a 295, I can only run a single ring. I think with the extra stroke 2mm down the bore, it might get caught up somewhere. Tom said it could be welded up to run two rings, but plan on going to 345cc when Tom is done testing ... more »

Tom is sending me a new top end, so thought I would share some pics of the cylinder why I have it apart. Ran great still, but 16hrs is far too much for single ring and racing with Tevin on it. He is also blue printing my front brakes to maximize brake

Great pics. Get any of Tapia by any chance? He was racing my bike and not many got pics of it at race.

Added reply in a thread 2T engine builder recommendations 10/20/2019 8:01 PM

Tom Morgan for sure. He made me yz315 stroker that was in straight rhythm. Absolutely rips! Did some of my other engines in the past and they were all killer. Top notch guy and great communication as well.

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.
