I don't know what you're talking about. A pre-race would be a significant performance advantage. Sounds hyper-competitive to me.....

You can run GP125 and GP250's in Heavyweight Twins as well.


Mike Sweeney (sweeney1186) got 3rd in HWT and 10th overall last year on an RS125...this year he's only running in the 125GP class though :(


Also, at Hallett a friend of mine (Isachar Perez) got 3rd in Novice HWT on a Daytona 675, so the 675's are decently competitive

Chase Vivion does very well in that class on his 675.

As far as MH members, the only one I know of is Ronnie Hay who currently/ actively races that class. Send him a PM.

at Cresson, if i didn't crash in the HW Twins race, i could've took 1st or 2nd place on my SV650 judging by my lap times.

i think being competitive, and being skilled.....are two very different things though. if you want to be competitive and skilled, you need the proper equipment. i won't be doing another HW Twins class on the smaller displacement bike again....getting outmotored by a few bikes twice your size, then having to pass 3 or 4 people per corner is a hard task, not to mention scary as cuz the bigger bikes gotta park it in the corners where the smaller bikes rely on that corner speed.

if i was to race in a HW Twins class again, i'd much rather race with a HW Twins bike. I wouldn't even do it on a 675. my choice would be the duc or the priller.

I would add it really depends on the track and the length of the straights. I ride a 675 and can out motor a lot of guys on V-Twins out of corners and down most straights and I am slow as . They usually don't catch me they just out brake me (completely different issue, not the bikes fault I suck).

The exception is a track like TWS (Texas World Speedway) where they get the chance to out motor me on the front straight, I get caught about the finish line. On the back straight they can get up along side of me but they have to out break me! The 4 banger 1000's are a different story all together. They out motor me right off the corner exit to any straight in about 10-20 yards, obviously I don't race against Ty (or his liking) and they are not in my group at TWS (Texas World Speedway) but I am certain it is a different story completely. Their parking in the corners is probably my top speed But most of the guys I ride with on the twins don't smoke me down the straights (not the shorter ones anyways), they get me on the brakes
