Nesco vintage MX track

It’s coming up in 4 weeks.  If you remember a post I made last year, this nesco event was pretty awesome. You get to ride your dirt bike on the race track and it was pretty loose with pretty much no rules. http://www.chinonthetank.com/2015/10/nesco-vintage-dirt-bike-track/ I’m definitely going again this year. A month from now. Who’s coming […]

Cb450 performance camshaft

Performance camshafts can add different characteristics of power to your engine. Cams with high lift can add mid range punch, while cams with longer duration can add high rpm top end power. Cams with both can really add power but you need to make sure the head can flow properly. It really depends on what […]

cb650 keihin crs29 carbs

If you have a cb650 (or any jap 4cyl) and you’re looking to splurge close to an extra $1000… This post is for you. 79-80 cb650 actually have pretty good stock-oem carbs IMO: 29mm bore, mechanical slide and accelerator pump. However, if yours are getting shitty and want a nice upgrade, brand new keihin crs29 […]

Mar Automotive

There are certain things you can do yourself and there are certain things you should leave to the experts with the real tools. I’ve lapped valves before. It’s cool to play around with doing that for fun, but really… let the experts make sure your head is legit. Mar automotive is an engine machine shop […]

Honda CR500 – 2 stroke

In case you don’t know… These things were pretty fast. Saw this shit on IG and was dying.  I’ll bet that power band hits like a Mac truck.

Not polishing turds

I lost $50. Adam was looking through the website at stuff from back in 2010. He found the below picture and said “wow, yanns bike was really clean”. I said no fucking way, it’s some random persons bike that came out for a Thursday ride. Long story short, I was wrong and yes it was […]

Chasing rainĀ 

6 of us decided to ignore the questionable forecast and go dirt biking in Reading.  Trails were awesome. Rain held out until we were tired of riding so it all worked out. First time back there since last fall. Definitely a little rusty. Everyone went down at least once. Good times. @chinonthetank getting some berm […]

See my other post here regarding how my 74 Z1 frame was cracked. Adam helped out big time and welded the frame where it was cracked. Creating those extra frame braces and gussets was not easy so huge thanks. We did all this and placed the bracing and gussets based on pics we’ve seen from […]

Modern dirt bikes?

I don’t think having a newer modern dirt bike would be as much fun as an old shitty dirt bike. Hear me out on this one… I’ve been going back and forth with my friend Kevin about this. He likes to disagree with me for the sake of disagreeing. He thinks (and I’m paraphrasing here) […]
