Not a stump puller by any means for a big bore two stroke the motor doesnt pull very hard off idle. Once the thing starts spinning up she starts building a ton of power really fast. Once you hit the pipe you had better be holding on really tight cause she will get away from you. Not what you would expect from a big bore. 51 hp stock. Think a 250 with about ten times the horsepower. When you grab about 4th and a handfull she will leave no doubt.
The full floater always stood kinda funny to me. Almost feels like the rear end is kinda jacked up. Narrow and light weight overall. Clean ride and cushy controls.
Cant decide if the forks are too stiff at low speeds or too soft at high speeds. Im working on that. I put a set of forks on mine off a YZ490 for now while i play around with the forks. nothing that cannot be fixed with a bit of tinkering.
Full Floater. Best thing around for a long time to fallow. Picks up the trail nasties like a dream but still manages to soak up the big hits of a modern MX track. I like this setup better than my newer machines.
Ehh they feel kinda soft but they do the job as well as could be asked for drums. Enough stopping power to bring her back from warp speed in a hurry if need be. Stops better than my horse. and he dont like to stop.
Very fast vintage MXer. But Do NOOOOOTTTTTT jump it too far in 3rd. For some reason i dont quite yet understand they like to drop into 2nd on hard landings. This sudden resistance on the rear tire can result in you kissing the dirt. Hehehehe No fun. I had never seen one of these until a friend told me to come pick up an old dirt bike someone left in his back yard. This is what i found. ANd she was i really good shape for a freebe. 140 psi compretion. I have quite a collection of big two strokes including a CR480R a YZ490 a WR360 and a KX500 and this yellow rocket is quickly becoming my favorite big bore. Dare i say it she as fast as my liquid cooled Kawi. Good machine overall
