CRF100 having fun with DRZ400's and TTR125's @ Adams Motorsports Park.

Finally got the mini moto set up, this was only my second time on it. It's completely stock except for an XR80 16" front wheel and a set of 100/90/16 BT45's.

What a ton of fun for the smallest amount of money.

It looked like the students were having a ton of fun and it's nice to see they offer a smaller bike (TTR125) as an option.

Opps, here's the links:

Post up when you do, I'll try to come out.

The dirt section was really cool too.

I have a YZ85 I'd like to set up for this. What exactly will I need to modify to do so? It's a 2 stroke without a power valve so it has a hard hit, is a 2 stroke not suited for this?

You'll be fine, more people are out there runing KX/RM 65's and CR85's than the 4T CRF100's and CRF150Rs.

You can run 12" wheels or 17" wheels on your bike I believe. You can either buy a new set of wheels (https://gatorrimz.com/yz85/) or you can head over to http://www.buchananspokes.com/ (they're local in Azusa) and have them lace up some wheels to your stock hubs.

Here is a good thread on setting up a YZ85: http://supermotojunkie.com/showthrea...-YZ85-MiniMoto

I spent a lot of time reading and doing research on SMJ, Planet Minis, ThumperTalk and pretty much any other forum I could find before actually getting a bike and setting it up.

Also check out the Mini Moto Alliance group on Facebook, lots of people to help you out there too.

My next bike will more than likely be a 2T 65 or 85. The XR100 is just such a predictable and approachable machine it makes it perfect to share with my girl to get her on a track and pushing her limits.

Awesome! I need to do this. Many years ago me and my friends would break into the local go cart track and race Nopeds and a few Mopeds. I used to trick out Yamaha QT-50 (Yamahopper) and make em go 55mph instead of the original top speed of 26mph. Bore, Port/Polish, Carb, Mill the head for high comp and build cool little chambers.

We all wanted gears so bad tho....


Sent from my Bike at 120mph

I have a little street legal XT225 if she ever wants to mess around on it!!! More than welcome! It's like an electric bike it's so small and simple. Love it. No intimidation.

This is what she currently rides but I'd like to put the supermoto setup on it for off season riding.

More picture whoring.

Karen took some great pics of me down @ Apex a couple weekends ago. Lot's of minis down there too bad the track layout is boring on a 6hp machine.








around and riding like it was flat track. I thought it might be faster than knee out on the tight radius corners but not really.




Front tire @ 18PSI cold



Baby boogies on the rear
