Re: I'm in love with a 2-stroke..
My hubby and I are thinking of getting one.
I've always wanted one, but know nothing about them. I might buy one off a good friend very soon. He has two vintage Yamaha RD400s.
One is the prize race bike, with a stage two
ported motor, fork brace, steering stabilizer,
Autometer Tach, drilled rotors, SW rear shocks,
new wiring/street legal kit I made, electronic
ignition, expansion chambers, rearsets, clip ons, all the
goodies, safety wired. *The thing is pretty
much unusable on the street. *And loud as hell.
The other, a half rat/half clean
cafe RD400 *
stock motor, bassani chambers, rigged rearsets,
polished forks/upper triple, braided lines, clean
wheels, new Avons, drilled rotors, pod filters, jetted.
I though it would be really fun for the track.
Does anyone have a 2-stroke? Are they difficult to maintain?
Any suggestions on what to look for, watch out for?
