Building and Racing an XT/TT500 Flat Tracker

Jimmy Pascol

My "Notes on Building and Racing a Flat Tracker" using a Yamaha XT/TT500 are available for free, without ads or any strings attached.


Flat Track is America's oldest form of motorcycle racing. It's now enjoying a resurgence in the US and is becoming increasingly popular in Europe and Australia. It needs more racers and fans to keep going so this is my way of helping keep it alive.


These Notes are a quick start to getting involved in the sideways life at minimal cost and preferably with friends. There's amateur classes at most dirt tracks including classes for knobby tires for anyone wanting to run whatever ya got to experience flat track. Print it off and/or share it with everybody interested in FT. It's all either off the internet or personal experience so there's no copyright problems - so pass it around.

      Does anyone have the actual mounted and aired up width of a Maxxis DT-1 130-19 flat track tire on a 3.00-19 rim?
      Or a different flat track tire of the same size would also be helpful. Can't find measurements on this size combo.

      KTM will be putting in a factory effort into flat track.  Awesome news, just wish there was better racing coverage.
