Had a great time..My bike ran like crap in pratice and my first heat but we got it running top notch for the main...becuase of my poor heat i had to start on the second row but luckily got a good start and was some where around 3rd-4th into the first corner when a big o triumph twin went down in front of me and my foot got a little tangeled up with it but I keep the bike up but unfortinately this set off a chain of events that made all hell broke loose behind me with body's and bike flying threw the air. Had to be 4+ bikes down. One rider took an ambulance ride out. I found out later he fracutred a vertebra broke his elbow got like 12 stitches in a leg and a few other small injuries. But his buddies say he was actually feeling pretty well.

When It got re started my bike about stalled on the line and I got a terrible start.When all was said and done I finished 6th out of 14

I think all the bikes in front of me where harley and triumph twins.. I dont think I could have got much more out of my poor little bike...I had a great race going with one of the harleys. We where swapping position the entire race it was a ton of fun.

I know this thread started over a year ago, but it was a great read. Ive just got my bike on the track for the first time and it was a hoot.
This last pic you posted. I cant believe that guy at the back is running with semi ape-hangers. It must handle something crazy.

I am on the fence about what to do for next season... I can keep pushing the little KLX 250 but need me some more power

I am thinking of getting me and 80's 250 two stroke..lower it (pretty ez to do with enternal spacers) and throw a mag front 19" off an old KZ or something on it .... But keeping it all on the super cheap.. I could run it in the "Real" flat track races out at Perris with SCFTA and take it out and still have some fun in the Hooligan races .


Or build up an unlikely street bike for a big Hooligan bike..thinking maybe Virago 700, Honda CB400/450 hawk, Kawasaki KZ400 or KZ750 Twin or just about anything... hmmmmmm

XR?....I wish! Just a 883 built to Sporster Performance Series specs. Yeah, I know they were doing some short track stuff down at Speedworld in Suprise, but that was the last.

Thanks for the link!

Now that I finally have the CDI figured out on my GN400 ice bike I can have it set up for some amateur flat-tracking next summer!

I am running a CDI from a CH250 Honda Elite scooter, wired to the stock coil and using the P1 (red/green wire) trigger signal to the CDI. Starts easy on one kick and idles nice and steady on the VM36 Mikuni round slide carb and Supertrapp muffler, foam Unifilter intake. Latest update as of Oct 2013: with the stock Suzuki coil and CH250 CDI the bike sputters above 4500 rpm. I suspected the stock coil had too much resistance, does not match well with the Honda CH250 CDI. I replaced the stock coil with a coil from a CH250. Seems a better match and the bike revs better now.
