Throw some different tires on it, safety wire it and get my feet wet. Need to do some research as it has been a while since I read up on the regulations.

Do tell about the HP bump please !

If you want to go basic and just get your feet wet, do not do anything to the motor yet... leave it stock... you have to decide if you want to go with 12" wheels, or stay with stock wheels go 16" or get after market 17" rims....if you leave the motor alone the first year, you can race super stock and be competitive in F7 also....you can race quite a few races and have lots of fun...if you modify the motor and stay at 115 cc or less you will not be able to race super stock, but you can race F7 races and have fun in F6... lots of fun here....there are lots and lots of things you can do to that little bike if you want, and yet you can just change the tires and leave it alone and still have a blast. Several of us on here have that bike.. I have one, steve has one, vaughn has one, jason has one, Mike has one.... and quite a few others, so lots of us have already done some of the things you may choose to do, so if you have any questions in the process, there will be someone on here who has already done it and can help you out.

you gonna be at the sept. races? I figure you can not have the bike ready to race by then, but you might enjoy looking at the other bikes up close and thinking about how you want to do yours.

yep, anyone who has a bike ready can race... you will have to take the riders school on saturday morning... then you can do sprints on sunday...
and then in october you can do endurance as well as sprints if you want and have a team together...
if you have prior race experience, like cmra, they will wave the race school and you can endurance right away and skip the two sprint minimum requirement.... TMGP is all about having fun racing....
if you have never raced before and may be a bit nervous about close up and personal passing... you can wear a tee shirt over your leathers or put a tape "X" on your back and the others will know to cut you some slack when passing.....the fun that can be had is unreal and cheap compared to other venues

The entire motor build would cost about $3500. Daytona 4 valve head 124cc stroker kit, Takegawa heavy duty clutch kit with remote oil reservoir, Jemco custom exhaust, CF Posh racing 4 map CDI, Mikuni 28mm carb, lightened flywheel, high flow oil pump, oil cooler, port and polish everything to match.

Oh, and VP MR12 for a big boom on the inside!!!

yep i would say that the hop up is not something i would suggest jumping on for a season or two... and then if you want to move up to be competitive in another class do the hop up...stock or with very few mods makes more sense for the first year of racing while you get the feel of things...
so where are the other guys who talked about getting a TMGP bike standing on that project?

Looks like my CR85 only qualifies for two classes.

Motard - Novice
Unlimited - (sounds intimidating)

What's the backward class??

It might qualify for formula 5 as well but I'll ask there.


I'm excited to run out there with you guys.

backwards is exactly that... a fun race at the end of the day, where we all get out there and run the track backwards...no practice that direction and all the turns are backwards from what you are used to...I say we, but in truth I am usually too tired by that time of day and watch... I usually sign up for it but not run it...kind of dumb i know, but that race is only $5 more on the sign up and if I am not too tired it can be fun... so I throw the $5 bucks in just in case.
oh and a lot of times there is no unlimited race as not enough folks show up with a bike for that class...but if 3 show up they will run one.
there are typically 23 to 27 sprints on race day.

i need to correct something i said in the last post.. the unlimited class... i said sometimes they do not have one... this year there has been an unlimited race at every event.. the largest grid was 8 and the smallest was 3...and they have all been expert class, no novice that i can remember, someone can correct me if I am wrong on this.

I guess you call organized confusion help..
I don't personally know anybody who runs one out there... if none of the guys on here have any answer for you, you might call Motorcycles Unlimited and see what Luke and Thomas say, they probably see more of the unlimited bikes than we (I) do up close.
