Lunch break ride on the XR650L’s with Ryan. He showed me his local riding spot which is a ton of fun, and about 20 mins from my house. Man… Ryan is fuggin fast on that XR.
Been riding the XR a lot since freshening up the top-end. Pretty happy with the bike, motor feels extra crisp now. – xr600r JE piston to bump compression a tiny bit. – TM40 pumper carb. Bike is feeling great. I found some fun little spots to ride just west of Lake Atsion. Prob 30 mins […]
What the F is a pumper carb? Basically when you twist the throttle, regardless of if the bike is on or off, the carb literally shoots a stream of fuel down into the engine. This shot of fuel reduces velocity-lag response (or something like that) so throttle response seems instant. A pumper carb wont necessarily […]
NE BDR was a ton of fun. Some fun-challenging spots. I wish the whole route was like VT. I wrote up a little thing, but I’m tired. I’m just posting the pics. And below is my pics, Jessies, and then Steves pics. Give it all a second to load up. Overall the NE BDR was […]
Yep – the s2000 is still an absolute blast. Recent track event last month in Millville NJ. I took a million Advil for my bad back, and went for it. Tom N in his e46 m3, and my other buddy in his rare white/red AP1 s2000. Ton of fun.
Overview Well. Month of Montana and riding the XR around the area has been an absolute blast. Kinda bummed to leave Missoula, who knows if I’ll ever be back. But, what better way than to leave MT for good, then to do the Idaho BDR. I wasn’t really sure what to expect despite having watched […]
ok… so I rebuilt this bike again. Hopefully for the last time. I’m making this post to help anyone in the future. 2013 Recap Back in 2013 I had the idea to build a hotrod / high compression cb450. I don’t know why I had this idea. I was bored and wanted to play around […]
Well. A month in Montana was great. I needed to get out of Philly for a little. Ending a month in MT with a week long offroad dirt bike trip was the best. Colin led us through a crazy off-road enduro adventure through SouthWest Montana. Such varied terrain. I can’t think of how to summarize […]
Colin showed us some dual sport trails that branch off of Blue Mountain, which is just south of Missoula. About 4 hours of dual/single track up and over a mountain which popped us out at The Jack Saloon, just south of Lolo MT. Ton of fun. Loose rocks are difficult on the XR650l. Especially steep […]
XR650L has turned out to be such a great bike. Last year trip through British Columbia the XRs did great, but noticed they ran pretty hot. So we asked Colin to install oil coolers on them while he stored them for us. We chose the Sutton xr650l oil cooler kit. Really nice cooler kit. Honestly […]
Trip is over. Most of the guys flew home. Adam and I fly home in a couple hours. Hanging at Colin’s shop “number 8 wire” at the moment. Film photos to come in a month probably. Thought I’d do a quick recap. Overall I had a ton of fun. Really great time I’ll quote Quinn; […]
Yes, I talked shit on these, but I had an idea and it’s the only bike that works. Planning on shipping it out west to leave out there, to do trips. Heres the way I thought about it. Ultra low compression motor will never break Can do a week of highway or a week off-road […]
Shit was wide open Jerz barrier moved Cops sitting out front Asked cop if they cared …they said nope So ripped in there for a few
Was a good year. Got in a handful of track events. Really happy with it all. Car ran great. Made a couple s2000 friends this year too which is nice. Vid below. Chased down: Caymen S / e46 M3 / Corvette
Did some more mods: Honda S2000 CR shocks. Swift spec R springs which are a little stiffer than CR springs and 1″ drop. Eibach front sway bar on stiff hole. CR rear sway bar. ACT clutch / streetlite flywheel. Car felt great. I’m still slow but feeling good and having fun. Tires cold – front: […]
Always wanted the hardtop…
I bought this jap s2000 magazine over a decade ago. Hyper Rev? Was published in 2004 when the AP2 first came out. I highly doubt most of these aftermarket performance companies parts are still available. Finally found an oem Honda hardtop too.
Did another track day at NJMP thunderbolt with Tom N. Ton of fun. Intake, exhaust mods felt / sound great. I need to figure out better GoPro sound quality. Wind is killing me. Played around with some different tire pressures. For my reference, cold: – 30.5 front – 30 rear Third session, lost the rear […]
I’ve had my car for 10 years. I decided I should do more track day stuff and mod it. Fuck it life is short. Car is def fun. Sounds great now. Installed: Skunk2 alpha headers Skunk2 megapower exhaust Berk technology 70mm high flow cat K&N short ram intake kit
Dead last and having a blast. Tom N and I were in the intermediate group I have a first year AP2 s2000. RS3 tires. Hawk brakes. AP1 slave cylinder Tom in e46 M3 I was def one of the slower cars/drivers in that group s2000 felt great, however I def need to improve and work […]

This past weekend I got in on the beach ride through the Pines trip. Sadly, this is my last official ride with the guys as a Philadelphian since my Fiance and I are escaping the urban nightmare that is Philly very soon. The day started out with Brain, Will, Dana, Steve, and I meeting at […]
