Motocross NYK and the 2-stroke

Recommended Posts

I think most of you guys have seen this vid: http://motocross.transworld.net/1000110652/videos/team-27-two-stroke-fever/

But now is speculation time! He said that he would consider riding one if he hooked up with Mitch Payton with the engine and stuff, and couple days later he were rocking that bike with all new Pro Circuit pipe and some special parts...

I mean - how epic would it be, if Wey would ride the two-stroke in the Nationals!? At least in some races. It's sad but true that 250 2-stroke isn't as fast as 450 these days, but in certain conditions it could very well have a chance in my opinion, especially if Mitch had done some magic for the thing...

That would be cool,but I don't think NW would do it for a whole season. He said its just not fast enough to run in the 450 class. IMO i run faster on a 250 2t than a 450, but I'm not a pro level rider. Hopefully he does a race or 2 on a 250 2t though, he is one of my favorite riders.:thumbsup:

I am a big NW27 fan, but I think its obvious he prob wont win a race. He might as well run a 2T and become a huge fan favorite haha.

You can't work anymore "magic" on a 2T than you can on a 4T. The 2T's are too slow. The displacement rules have been setup to guaranty that. It's just that simple.

He was referencing a bone stock bike in the video. There are significant performance gains that can be made on a stock bike with the right parts.

It's a smart publicity move if he does and honestly what does he have to lose? I can see it happening for like the last race of supercross of something. I would still have rather seen Cedric through who is a two stroke rider try. I hope be does it.

All Nick has to do is say he's considering it and he's got more people rooting for him just for that fact.

So what if the rules are against you? Running the 2t would make you a cult favorite. I see big non MX sponsor dollars here.

A very smart move for a mid-pack guy. He might as well do something to make himself stand out. What's the old saying....It doesn't matter what they are saying about you as long as they are talking about you.

How anyone can tolerate the noise of a 2 stroke is beyond me. And I don't mean loudness, I'm talking straight annoying and irritating factor. I'm not sure I've heard a noise more grating on my ears.

      Hi Guys ,
      I'm in Australia and i am going to stream RBSR online , Red Bull site says start is 11:30 AEST ( Australian eastern standard time ) on the 20th Saturday
      which i don't think is correct . if it is on the 20th of Oct in the U.S at 1:30pm (racing must be about 4-5 pm) start on Saturday and Australia being 17 hours ahead wouldn't that make it a Sunday the 21st broadcast ?

      Growing up, seeing motovans at the track was possibly one of the coolest things.. while I was sleeping in my singlecab pickup. But hey, at the time, in highschool, my truck was cooler than some van. Now at this "age" 24... a van is quite a dang good idea, so I started looking. After a few facebook pots, a buddy of mine knew someone who had a 2001 E350 Passenger van sitting, and would get me a price. he told me it needed a radiator, and the spark plug blew out of cylinder 4 (common 5.4 triton issue). A few days go by, and he calls saying I can have it for FREE! they just needed it gone! So, I go out there with a friend of mine who has a 30ft gooseneck, and some starting fluid to make sure I don't get in too deep... we cant get it to fire without starting fluid, and ruled it out to a fuel pump. We pull the van on the trailer, stop by the parts store, and are headed home.


      The van was sitting stationary for 4 years... and smelled like it. but we'll get back there.. We dropped the tank, having to cut one of the tank straps and emptied the 4 year old fuel, put a new fuel pump in it, about 5 gallons of premium race fuel (fast and furious), and she fired up.  Next was the spark plug issue, I tapped the threads, and installed a helicoil along with new plug and coil pack, and we were good. Later I replaced the radiator after flushing the coolant system.

      The next day, we pulled out everything behind the first row bench seats, to include the headliner, rear AC duct, and side panels. Had to cut out the old seat belt mounts, and reinstalled the last bench where the first bench originally resided, since it was longer, but a few inches back to have optimal leg room. Then came the wall install... after lots of measuring once and cutting twice... I got it all figured out, and had the wall installed, then yellow stuffed "expanding foam" around all sides to ensure I wouldn't have fuel fumes in the cab. Finally I installed some flooring, just to give the bare metal some protection.
       
      After that, I was king of burned out on the van, before I even used it. She sat in my driveway for months before I was ticketed for having an unregistered vehicle parked outside.. gotta love florida.. I posted it forsale for a few days, then decided I would getRdone.

      So, off to the DMV, registered, and custom plates reading "MOTOVAN". Picked up a heavy duty cargo lock, fuel treatment, tons of black ice "little trees", and some R-134 to recharge the AC. She was making her first trip to the track that weekend!

      We changed the oil, 1,000 miles and 3 years overdue... only 2qts came out.. and sea foamed the green monster. After driving all over town, I parked in the driveway for a second, only to try to move it, and nothing on start up... not even after a jump.. so back to the parts store for a starter. After one of the worst starter jobs ever, she was cranking again. I figured we were problem free... but not before a brake line failed, and had to replace that guy, in order to take her to the track in 2 days!

      Finally! we were all clear, and we loaded three bikes into the van, and we were off! Two bikes is preferred.. but three worked, juts had to put most of the gear in the cab. Was a great day of riding, before a buddy crashed and ended the day with a concussion and a few compressed vertebrae..

      The van made another trip out this past weekend, and developed a new misfire, that ill be taking care of this week, and rechargeing the whole AC system since ill be sleeping in it this weekend for my first race in years!

      I will add some photos off my phone in a bit, until then, here is my youtube channel I created for the motovan!

      2019 Supercross season is near. Your "flavor fave" just took the MEC after being waved bye for the win.
      Same bet as last year..... $100 max customized jersey of your choice. First come first serve, but your ass BETTER pay up as others have to Mongo.
      I'm only taking the first "real" bet that approves my wager.... Tomac vs. the field 2019 SUPERCROSS. . He wins, you win. He looses, I win...... Who is the first taker? Anybody have the testicular fortitude? 
    • By Mongo134
      A friend of mine, BAHA, you know him, had a very good point I never thought of. All of these big $$ race purses are insured. Monster pays on insurance a percentage and should someone win the MEC as they did last night, the insurance company pays it out. 
      Now.... Had Savatgy just FUBAR'd in the sand like he should have to make the pass convincing that would be one thing. But since he was seen looking back several times to see where Tomac was at, caught slowing on camera on the backside of the track AND caught waving Tomac by to take the win.... I'm interested to see if insurance pays out or calls it a form of Insurance Fraud?

      I could be late but in the post race interview Tomac strongly hinted he will race the GPs at some point in his career. Maybe the incentive will pass but he sounded serious about it.
