CycleWorld is nice

I ended up getting a subscription to the new redesigned version of CycleWorld. I dig it. Whoever their new designer is actually gives a shit. Clean and balanced design with articles I actually read. Reminds me of when I was a kid and had a subscription to Ride or Dig magazines for bmx.

Anyone care about oil?

I called megacycle camshafts because I had some cam questions. Some old tech-lady I spoke with was great. We talked about a bunch of shit. She asked what oil I normally use. I said conventional 10-40 mc oil. She said nope, that shit ain’t good enough. She said I really need to be using an […]

IT250 trans fixed

There is a blog post I meant to make showing the engine cases split and trans all disassembled. Showing the new crank installed and me confused about what was wrong with the trans because everything looked perfect. I forgot to make that post oops. So… Turns out the it250 has a spring loaded pin inside […]

KZ camshaft info

The below info is mostly for my own personal future reference, but hopefully someone else out there in internet space gets a benefit from it. Obviously a ton of options for aftermarket cams, but I’m going to highlight only three specific cams. specifically for the z1 / kz900 / kz1000 motor. specifically for 1015cc or […]

Another vintage Z1 article

Dirt bike front suspension

Maybe I’m wrong in thinking this way; but I never put much effort into fine tuning the front suspension on my other bikes. For example, on my 74 Z1, I bought progressive suspension brand front springs, put them in with the pvc spacers… it was stiffer, so I thought, “cool, feels good, done”. I didn’t […]

IT250 conundrum

So things are getting weird. For clarity, other than popping out of gear which is the reason for the tear down, my it250 runs super crisp. Gobs of power. Compression is spot on. After taking the cylinder off, the piston looks perfect. Zero scoring on piston or cylinder. Rings also look perfect. So I didn’t […]

Your dirt bike is junk

I’m sure it is. Mine is. My IT250 suspension is clapped out like mikes moms squeeze box. It’s beat the F up. Since it’s the start of winter I’m taking some time to redo a couple things. My bike always pops out of gear so gonna sort the trans, but more importantly… do the suspension. […]
