kx65 tmgp ?

i have looked at the tmgp website for the classes and everything but i was wondering if somebody could tell me the races i can sign up for off the top of there head. and is my 65 going to be competitive? it has a fmf exhaust and gearing. it seems to run pretty good but i dont really have anything else to compare it to. and does anybody suggest any extra parts i may wanna get just in case. i mean obviously clutch and brake levers but anything else would be appreciated.

thanks

You will run in formula 6. TMGP classes mirror CMRA's. You'll be competitive for sure, but most guys are running a 72cc big bore kit in theirs as the rules allow up to 75cc. You'll do just fine on the small tracks, but during teh Cresson and Oak Hill crossover races, you may just want that extra bit of oomph.

You may also look into the Pro Circuit pipe. They produce much better HP than the FMF's do on the KX model.

Pushing the front could be a number of issues. What psi are you running? I found that 17-18 psi cold is about perfect. I have many laps on mine with stock suspension, and don't have any issues before upgrading. You can get Racetech springs for $100 for that, and it will make a HUGE difference.

Also, when you enter a corner, you have to be on the pipe. If you're not, when the power band hits, it will raise the front, and give it the "pushing" effect, causing you to over steer, and possibly lowsiding. Gear selection is critical on a 2 stroke mini tard

The TT92's are ok. I prefer the Stones 062, but you can't find those. Sava has had some great reviews. Try this website:

you'll also want to invest in a set of bark busters. Some use Moose Racing, but I prefer the Cyrca's. The cover more of your hand as opposed to the Moose

With your bike I would run...

F5 Expert
F5 Backward Expert
Motard 65
Motard Expert
Unlimited

Those are the only 5 classes you can run your bike in... you don't qualify for Dinosaurs since your not over 200lb nor are you over 40. Even if you were I think Dinosaurs is limited upto F6.

You don't "think" he is an expert.

But I "know" he is an expert.

This is Thomas Magnus - he's been CMRA expert for a couple years now.

WE love you moe.. And Curly, and Larry
Last I checked I finished 3rd in the F5 Novice class... umm and I don't think I saw your name anywhere close to that

bigbob65, my challenge still stands.

Me on my F7 bike VS you on your F6 bike.

If you decide to take me up on it, let me know, we'll race at any TMGP event, sign up for the "Other" class. Loser pays for other person's race fee and buys them drinks after words?

You game?

Oh and I'm still a Novice don't worry.

How many years of racing do you have now under your belt? 15-17 years?

Quit Sand Baggin`

But don't worry I'm working on it, I'll catch up to you old farts soon

Once they post the schedule up (1-2 weeks) pick a race - or heck all season long, "Other" class. Just let me know.
