One of the guys from Kawiforums has let me borrow some of his photos to show you guys. These are some of the track bikes that are running in local races in Thailand. Some nicely modded bikes there!














Thanks to TonyBKK!

Yea, they'll let me run in the Super Street class - no points, and therefor your only race yourself... But I have to get a few things figured on Cherry first, before I put her on the grid with the big boys - ie: suspension and an exhaust.... Maybe if we get enough people to run 250's in the super street they'll make a class? You coming out to the races the 11th and 12th Delta? It'll be at HPR, which is like your back yard...

eric, that's awesome, you gotta be very proud. Please pass on my congrats and well wishes his way. Some info on the bikes?

For the stunter, do you know what gearing he's using?

And for the racers, what are the manufacturers, sizes, and if possible, compounds. As much info as possible please.

Here you go spooph.

I'm not only proud but getting very poor too.Co-sponsoring a race bike is [email protected]#$%^& expensive.

We bought that bike used. Striped out all unnecessory parts to save weight. 20 kg to be exact.
One pair of Michelin slicks for each race, hard compound(Thailand is a hot country) 120/70-17 front on std rim. 150/60-17 rear on 4.5" Ninja650 rim. Home made clip on handle bars. Re oil the front forks with Motul heavy duty fork oil. Yss sub-tanked shock absorber rear. Dyno-tuned POWER COMMANDER V std engine. 2x K&N round air filters w/o air box(removed). Reprepped butterfly valves and injectors. Exhaust by DBS. Sometimes known as Targa. Gearing:14:43-14:45,depends on what kind of track.Low friction ball bearings w/o dust seals. Last dyno tune, 40 bhp on 95 Ron green gasolin.Most of the modifications,accept for the dyno, are done in the little work shop behind my house.

That's about it.Can't think of anything else.


As for that stunter. The gearing he use is 14:47.

Eric you have got to mass produce that 4.5 inch rim mod for the states dude. Or at least the parts to do it. Might make a few dollars.
