fontyy that's nice looking, I do prefer standard bikes for my collection
How good a track day bike (not for racing) would the Honda Rs 250 make, I currently do between 12 and 15 a year, spending a total (I think) of about £3,500. Could I manage say 10 to 12 tds on this buget, or would the 2-stroke cost much more because of the maintenance (new pistons every 300 miles, new crank every 1500 is that about right?). I'm sure I could rebuild the top end myself, but I've never done a crank.What sort of performance do you get from these bikes, close to 600cc speed but with tiny weight? How difficult are they to learn to ride, the only 2-strokes I've had before was an lc about 20 years ago, and an rgv track bike about 6 years ago.Next spring I'll have between 5 to 6 grand to spend on a new track bike, is that enough to get a decent 2T race bike for?
If I had £6k for a trackbike I think I'd do another NSR, mid 60's bhp, sub 130kg wet, normal 95 ron fuel, quiet pipes if you need, day light MOT maybe? It's enough, parts are easily available and it'll last a lot better than an RS.

PJM I think Eddie J is the one two answer these questions for you. I'm likewise looking to go the 2stroke route as i'm bored of the diesels , you just can't beet the feel and smell of a stroker!
icarus1859, the guy in the North that you refer to. Does he only sell road based 2 strokes? If it race only bikes, then I think that I know who he is and his bikes come from the same source as mine.
Some time over the next week or so (when time permits) I shall try and get a costings sheet together for the TZ and RS. .
so maybe a road bike would be better unless I find a specialist shop near by
That is gorgeous!:smoke:
