    Vintage Suzuki 76 rm 250 idle speed

    I put new mikuni on my 76rm250, motor fully rebuilt top and bottom end, rod etc, still doesn't really pull 5 th gear, drops off the pipe a bit from 3rd to 4th but does pick up but 5th gear not so

    Can a tm250 piston work in a rm250?

    yep tm or ts piston fits, needs a little machining I run one in my 76rm250..i think it is 3rd oversize or 1 mm, I cant remember but the piston skirt was machined off a little bit

    1986 YZ125 - bringing her back

    it goes great actually, is my favourite bike to ride in vinduros as well as classicmx... my buddy and I won a 4 hour pony express, me on the yz and him on a 86 cr125 and we were the only 125s, plenty of open class bikes and 250s the bike was a pain in the ass when I go it...I replaced just about everything, all the elecrics, carb, new pipe, rebored and rebuilt powervalve ...it was still slow....then I discovered the cdi was from a yz490..now it really pulls, is a great bike. is my fave

    Motocross and age

    59 here, still bush ride my 450 race classicmx and also vintage endure...keeps my race competitiveness happy and enjoy the 450 in the trails I also race the 450 in vets in classic, good fun..traks are easier for us old blokes
  7. I ride an 86yz125 in vinduros in oz and it is superb... I also ride a 76rm250 some times but that is a lot more of a worry, hard to ride in the tight stuff if u maintain the ols bikes they go very well

    drum brakes

    hey guys, being a regular racer of both modern and classic bikes I am bewildered by lack of braking on the older bikes even with new shoes the old rm I race seems to have just a general lack of stopping power, especially on the front, always spongy feeling... now I know it was a long time ago but surely when I was racing back then the brakes were better or are we now just spoilt with modern brakes?
