Two Stroke Clubs?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by rgr_88, Dec 11, 2007.

  1. Hey, does anyone know if there are any two stroke bike clubs around at all or in NSW. cheers.

  2. Two stroke riders don't have time to participate in clubs. They are too busy rebuilding their bikes.

  3. we should start one

    imagine group buys on 2t oil :grin:

    not that it is likely :oops: :(

  4. Yeah mate, here is the founding member. :p

  5. What, start a 2 stroke?

    Good luck. Let us know how the muscle building exercise went. You might even be able to get a run with an AFL team as their full forward.

    Imagine that - being able to kick a goal from the half back line....
  6. I'll be a member!
  7. Might as well resort to playing footy and give up bikes completely if you can't get your stroker to start over with the first few kicks...
  8. This is more like the founding member!


    That other guy's riding a 4-stroke briggs and stratton!
  9. If you find a 2-stroke bike club I will join!!
  10. HEHE 2 stroke club would be awesome!

    I'm waiting for LAMS to be introduced in vic so I can grab a nice 250 2T track/project bike on the cheap
  11. OT question: Were any 2T road sports bikes ever released with a capacity greater than 250cc?

    And how do the acceleration/max speed of a 250cc 2T compare to a 600cc 4T?
  12. RG500
    +that weird italian 1ltr 2 stroke bike
  13. Yeah Bimota V-Due. Was 120hp around 140kg and enough to scare the living pants off most people who rode it. Unfortunately it was the bike that almost killed Bimota due to running issues with the new direct injection system. Unfortunate because it has pretty much put the last nail in the two stroke coffin. If only they got it right...
  14. there was an RD400 and 500 models. Not sure if they were legal here tho.

    Accel depends on bike/condition. Good looking and in good nick RGV/NSR/RS, even an RZ250 modded with 350 parts can beat the pants of most 600's up to 140 but then they will fly past.

    2 stroke club? I'd join! I just bought one :grin:
  15. Large capacity 2 strokes. Well, there was the Kawasaki 750 2 stroke triple, and the Suzuki 750 "waterbottle", one of the first ever water cooled bikes to be built as a mass prod. bike.

    I don't think that there were anything larger, but I could be wrong.

    The Kwaka was a biatch of a bike to ride, with a power curve that more or less went straight up, and what with the multiple hinges built into the frame, it made for an interesting ride over 140 kays (sorry, 88 mph back then).

    Well, it was for me, that is...
