I've got a TZR125R myself, and looooove two-strokes.

I wanna get my hands on some more power though, i gotta atleast try to keep up with my old man on his Fireblade!

What's powerful two-stroke engines are out there to buy?
A friend told me to get old of a KTM 550 MXC, but loads of searching the net for ADs hasn't come up with anything.
I just want something with some grunt I can try and squeeeeeze into a tiny frame and wrap a new fairin on!
Please PM me,

Best bang for the buck is probably an RD350 YPVS. RG500s are very quick but also expensive and cost a fortune to rebuild if it goes wrong. A complete running 350YPVS can be had for £500 and a good stock one will be about 50bhp at the rear wheel. Loads about on ebay.

I don't visit very many 2-stroke sites and the ones which I do visit tend to reflect my own particular 2-stroke interests and are probably quite well known in those particular areas but here they are anyway,

A 490 twin-shock, and two gear primary drive 500 single shock's (last of the air-cooled's), one of which I hope to turn into a supermoto,.............just for the hell of it!.

I have seen one of the liquid cooled 500s turned into a supermoto/hillclimber.

Quite cool and it was competing at Barbon Hillclimb



Anyway, a question regarding Maicos...

I don't suppose you happen to know where to get the rims for the ones with 40 spokes (front and rear wheels)?

Might be nice if someone knew where to get supermoto rims for it also as the usual choices are 32 or 36 spokes.

It's not even my bike anymore but a mate owns this 250

Nick, what's the top end you got on there? Is it a T-Rex?

Did you spot this one earlier on?


The top end is a pair Trinity Racing Banshee quad cylinders with a billet cool head. The head has interchangable domes so you can adjust the squish volume easily. It uses O-rings as well so no more messing with head gaskets

Trinity just resell other makes, they don't manufacture. Seeing as they looking nothing like either of the Cheetah's I guess, they must be T-Rex then.

My Noss head also has the dome inserts (same style as the Cool Head ones). I get 'em cut for $75 a pair delivered. Bargain!

You taking it to the BMF for the LC Club stand?

Thanks Hedgehog, you don't see that many RG250 about.

Who knows which model of bike that this is, and which bike is rumoured to have evolved from it?


Ahhh, that would be the Yamaha GL750. Engine was evolved into the TZ750. Only made as a prototype though i believe.

Bah, beaten to it by Rich! I beleive it wasn't even a runner as it only ever made one appearance at the Tokyo Motor show in 1972.

If only it had made it into production.

Maybe Eddie could "restore" one from a TZ750 and various other bits?
