    The plan is to N+1 on the bike thing. I don't want to unload a bike to help fund a new one. Someone pointed it out here, but it seems fitting that that has been a consistent factor in what bikes I regert selling.

    So basically......I got nothing. Staring at my ERp software all day. nothing. but. numbers. :fpalm

    If racing is the main goal I absolutely agree it’s not better than a wr/fx.... buy in discount? I bought my 250 for 7500 or something and I think @N8 was similar or less for his FE250’s. How much cheaper are they?

    I see there's some 18\19 250excf's for pretty low prices. This is all just kicking around ideas at this point. I'll have to make some road trips to go look at stuff here in the next couple months. What better way to get the better of winter. :dunno

    I need to know whether to laugh or get defensive and make excuses.

    That 2T carb'd goodness.
    [​IMG]
    Mine..GasGas. :lol3

    Then there was this yamahammer 125....which became a 144, and also when I decided to buy the right tools to do engine work. :lol3
    [​IMG]
    Amusingly, when I did something on that 144 later on, I used a piece of copper to hold some gears locked in position. I forgot to pull the piece out completely, and freaked out by copper shards in the enxt oil change. :lol3 Once I realized what the issue was, a quick clean and we were all back to go. :fpalm :lol3
    [​IMG]

    Oh and then there was this carb'd 2T goodness....Some screw backed out inside the engine (box stock bike with low miles), and busted some gears...Thanks Husky. :fpalm
    [​IMG]

    Few weeks later the flywheel nut backed off on its own......Thanks Honda for the tow!

    So tell me more aboot these faultless 2T :ear
