There is proof, that It is more FUN to ride a slow bike Fast, than a Fast bike SLOW.

Nearly 30 years ago the rage was to transplant YZ, KX, CR, RM 80 engines into the Yamaha YSR50 rolling chassis. Well you know the American way, if a little is good, more is better, right?

Two friends of mine transplanted the Kawasaki Tecate 250, counter-balanced, liquid cooled, KXT250R two stroke three-wheeler engines into their YSR50's, that they had previously modified pretty sharply.
The 1st one done would hit 42mph in 1st gear & might have been able to pull about 120mph calculated! It seized at 90mph once, while sorting out the jetting for a re-cut, twisted & re-welded FMF Tecate pipe. The Reflexes of the short wheel base really scared the crap out of him.

They were Scary Fun. For a While. They both eventually bought another stocker & re-modified their air-cooled 50cc engines.
