Title: Blue Haze - a two-stroke miscellany
Post by: stroker crazy on Jun 17, 2014, 06:18:27
Now and then I come across an item that might be of interest to those of us who appreciate the pleasures (?) of two-stroke motorcycles.

Rather than start a multitude of one-post threads I will put them all here.

Contributions welcome!

While walking through Sydney's Chinatown on the weekend I spotted the bike below sandwiched between a mundane collection of scooters.

It was minus all the plastic bits, but is still being ridden.

I am fairly sure it's a Honda NSR250R (MC21) from 1991.

They were never released in Oz, so this would be a grey import.

I gather they put out 45HP standard and 60HP de-restricted.  With a dry weight of 132kg  they could do 185kmh (45HP) and 215kmh (60HP).

Sounds like fun!

Cool idea!  8)

I was with a bunch of buddies in Paris, Ontario last weekend. We've had our annual KTC bash there every Father's Day weekend since 2008!   :)

Just a couple of pics:

Post by: stroker crazy on Jun 19, 2014, 18:32:41
Not my bike unfortunately!

I'm building much the same motor but in an RZ frame.  The extra capacity comes from a 73mm bore and an extra 4mm stroke compared to the original 350cc bike's 64mm x 54mm.

The main difference with my motor is that I will be using a pair of 39mm Keihin flatslides.

That's a pretty radical RZ500 you had there!! Nice!!  :D  Does it have the aluminum frame or steel?

I remember well whan the first units arrived in Toronto. The shop I was getting some work done at recieved one of the first units. They were a well known race shop and specialized in Yamaha RD's, and RZ's. It was an amazingly dense package! Not a wasted bit of space between the axles!!



I had the chance to ride around CTMP in S. Ontario 2 years ago. They had a "track time" during the lunch break at the vintage races. I followed this around for a lap or so:

Not as radical as yours, but pretty nice! And clean as a whistle!!  8)

He wasn't interested in pushing it on the track though!! I passed him and his buddies with my "stone axe h2"!! I don't blame him at all though. It's way to nice to wreck pushing it beyond your comfort level.  :D

I purchased this to read on my tablet. Outstanding book!
(http://img2.imagesbn.com/p/9781610600453_p0_v1_s260x420.JPG)
Overview...
Until the 1970s, North America was considered a backwater with respect to world championship–level motorcycle road racing. European racers viewed American riders as being less talented and rode around in circles on tracks made of dirt. That all changed when Kenny Roberts exploded onto the Grand Prix racing scene and became the first American to win the world championship in motorcycle road racing's premier class. Roberts' success launched an era of American dominance that lasted for nearly 20 years and still echoes through the annals of the sport. This is the story of the legendary American riders who beat the Europeans at their own game, including Freddie Spencer, Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey, Kevin Schwantz, Kenny Roberts Jr., and the most recent American world champion, Nicky Hayden. With additional chapters about the American World Superbike champions and those Americans who competed for the World Championship, this is the story road racing fans have been waiting decades to read.

The "little bugger" with a full fairing was timed at 114 in the Isle of Man (Jurby road circuit.  Not the TT).  Robert Dunlop's Kreidler hit 117.  Slow when you think that some of the GP 50s could run in the high 120s.

Aalt Toersen on a Kreidler.  After all these years he still doesn't hang around.

Good score! Kawi has made these from 1969 to 2003. The rotary valve 100 can be modified to have the same port timing as the G31M dirt bike which made 18 hp.
A buddy of mine did the port mods and added a pipe, now he's getting a top speed of 70 mph in New Mexico (the elevation difference works out to about a 20% loss)
Through the 70's there were lots of motor refinements but essentially the same motor from 1982 up. Lots of parts can be found so you are in good shape with that one, enjoy!

This homage to Barry Sheene built from a 1976 Suzuki TR 750 was featured recently by Pipeburn.
It was built by a bike shop in Portugal named Redonda.
It's a nice replica, but what caught my attention on their website was the mention of two other stroker projects:

    1980 Kreidler Van Veen GP
    1985 Yamito 350 (Cagiva mito body and Yamaha RD350 engine)

I will be keeping a watch on their site!

I flogged the same DOHC 8 valve twin for a million years and finally got bored with it.So I got a 200 Blaster which is a 6 speed,air cooled and counterbalanced, understressed engine.I trenched the cases for a 4mm stroker crank,freshened up the entire motor,ported the cylinder,added Boyeson ports to the intake,Wiseco piston and forged clutch basket,VForce4 carbon reeds,billet intake manifold,36mmTM Mikuni.I will start with the stock pipe,all cut up to fit the bike and a few tricks I want to try to it[the pipe].If my exhaust doesn't work I will put a Jemco on it.

Is that really an XS/TX500 with a turbo on it?  Good for you.  What sort of ET/MPH did it generate?

That Blaster barrel looks interesting and seems to me to have some further potential, as does the pipe.  Are you going to race it or run it on teh street? Or Both :-) ? That's an interesting project.  Good luck and keep the posts coming please.
Title: Re: Blue Haze - a two-stroke miscellany
Post by: jimmer on Feb 07, 2015, 19:29:40
Yes sir,that is a XS500 with a turbo.I used one stock cv old junk carb in a blow through setup. It pulled great up to about 1000 feet and then it would flood out and coast the last 320' through the traps,engine shutdown.The carb had weird internal bowl vents and just pushed too much fuel under boost right when it was pulling strong.I was moving and starting a new job at the time,so I only limped it one season of racing.It ran a boat load of 12.40's at 107/108/109 mph.Now if I would have sorted out a real carb it probably would have been an 11.50 bike,or better.But I didn't,and it wasn't. This was my first turbo project and I will never forget the first time I launched it under full boost!

Just picked up this IT425. Hard to find much info about it. All I really know is that its shares the yz/it400 bottom end, that the bore is the same but it has a longer stroke, and that it requires an oily 20:1 ratio.

Oh and it DEVOURS fuel

Also there are only five #it425 posts on Instagram and they're all from the guy I bought it from.

Any idea how many of these were made? I've heard only 50 of these made it to Britain so I can't imagine more than a couple hundred were produced.

It's sad to think that the value on these bikes is mostly due to limited production and collectability instead of based on the awesome riding machines they are.  I'm sure most sit in showrooms or in someone's private collection and are ridden very little.

Not all that newsworthy but we set another couple of records with our two stroke street bikes at the AMSNOW drag race event in MI last month. 95.54mph (same ET)  on the RZ350 and 13.1 at the same MPH on the GT750.  I was out on round one after doing a 13.22 against a 13.20 dial in.  My reaction time was 0.3 seconds off the OP and that's where I lost that race - before it really started.

And I picked up a drag race GT750 Suzuki project.  It has already been dropped off to have the steering head moved back and swingarm lengthened a bit and a new back end fitted to take an early R1 6" wide 17" rear wheel.  I brought home the motor and have to now fit the GS1100 transmission and a new crank.

I think I have some pictures here.  With teh frame and forks in MI and the motor with a blown crank, there's not much to see at the moment.  I have the carbs stripped for cleaning and they are not quite teh way I would have run them, but can't complain. 

Lat year I managed to get my hands on a pair of race barrels and heads and I think there is more HP in there waiting to see the light of day but my immediate focus is on finishing the GT750 resto-mod that's taking up space.  Barrles have been cleaned up and just had them bored and the top decked to raise compression.  Turns out the block was slightly warped, so it was just as well I took 5 thou of the bottom face first to clean it up.

I have a squish head but I think I'll finish the welded head and machine a new combustion chamber shape into that one.  Unfortunately I don't have a machine shop so I have to pay people to machine parts to my design.  There are some great machinists and welders in Elk Grove Village which is not too far from us and that helps.

The real question is do I finish the reed top end with extra transfer port or port one of the sets of barrels I have.  The real answer is that I should build the motor as it was raced and then try my barrels on the dyno and see if they are any better.  The guy that built this bike ported and built the GT750 that still holds the lowest ET/highest MPH of any drag race GT and that was back in 76 or so.  Going faster than his bike is the challenge.

Here's the bike from last season

(http://i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h364/tz375/P1050784_zpsyyioihse.jpg)

Rebuilding the motor is fairly easy as is porting it - it just takes time.  The chassis is an area I don't know a lot about.  Road race and street I can set up pretty well and have taught suspension set up at race school a few times but drag race chassis are a whole other ball of wax.  Good opportunity to learn something new.

I always liked these bikes/ motors, roadraced one a bit in the early '80's. I picked up a motor for $40,cleaned,inspected, new seals, gaskets, stainless bolt kit, did the oil pump delete mods, omitted the 2#5oz. flywheel,new points,standard bore rings,did enough porting to kick the carpal tunnel into overdrive. Intake manifold is recycled scraps,ignition is leftover points amplifier(and a spare),epoxy high volt coils,solid core wires,good NAPA plug boots,all leftovers from the stockpile. As is the big carb from my CR500. It will be dual-fire(both plugs firing every 180 degrees) and total loss. This is going in my spare Yamaha chassis, looking for Ninja 250 17" wheels,swingarm,brakes,front end. I'll use this for a drag playbike. If it runs good I'll bracket race it. All the internals looked like brand new,it even had beefy clutch springs already.

I like things that are a bit different.I have ridden plenty of strong sleds with 2/1 or 3/1 pipes. I have also ridden a GT750 Buffalo with a single pipe. That was ok cool but crapped out way too early. This chamber is from a 500 Artic Cat sled with very similar bore/stroke/rpm range. My biggest concern is that the T500 is piston ported and the Cat is reed valve. With the big flatslide,porting and chamber I am looking for great midrange,yet still pull hard to 8000.

Post by: teazer on Jan 28, 2016, 11:36:10
3 into 1 pipes really struggle on a street bike but can work on a sled with the right design.  A twin is much different though and should potentially work.  I am really interested to see the power curve for this one but I suspect that it will have trouble revving to 8,000 because of the small time area, but who knows if that pipe will help to suck gas through the tiny ports fast enough to work.

It's good to see people trying things that they know may not work but are willing to take that chance and try it anyway.  If we don't try we surely cannot ever succeed.  Good luck.

finally after years of looking, I have my own two stroke. Always wanted one dating back to high school circa 1989 when I learned to ride on my brother's Kawasaki H1. Picked up this crappy, rusted out T500 last summer and have proceed to replace and refurbish everything. My chambers just came today from Higgspeed and I mocked them up, which is why I decided to post here. Those chambers finally make it look like a real smoker. Now I just need rearsets, some paint, powder coat the frame, etc.

I should elaborate somewhat. I had been riding dirt bikes since I was 5 years old.  I "learned" to ride on the street legally on the H1. It was quite the bike! He actually still has it and drives it regularly.

By the way, I see some T500's with amber rear turn signals and I have seen some with red rear turn signals. Just curious why that is? I noticed yours are red. Mine were amber. Is one a European versus USA import? Of did they change that based on year?

I have an old Royce Union water pipe bicycle. It's heavy, and needs a good tune-up, but even on carbon wheels its the most comfortable bike I've ever ridden. Those water pipes have just the right type of give and it can be ridden comfortable for a very long time. It's my favorite bicycle as a result. I wouldn't recommend that style of construction when you have actual springs though.

Looks to me like a TZ250 J/K/L with GSXR or RGV front end and RGV? rear swinger.  Rear shock is way too long - check out the swingarm droop. 

If it's the original TZ motor it will be unrideable on the street, so maybe the shoved an LC or RZ motor in there for fun.

Title: Re: Blue Haze - a two-stroke miscellany
Post by: teazer on Sep 22, 2016, 00:09:52
Is that a genuine A1R or a replica? Mate of mine in VIC had one with 4LS front brake and RD forks and it chattered all teh way round turns 1 & 2 at Broadford.  Not very inspiring.  Dave Roper has one I believe.

That TZ250C is nice too.  I brought my 350 back from Oz and restored it to 95% original and the rest were good Meed Speed replica parts. Those things are just so nice and clean and so light compared to an RD.  Sourcing parts is a heck of a lot more expensive than it used to be.  I used to get bits off AMCN and stash them away for the day I'm need them, but over the years they have almost all been used.  They all went to good homes, so no tears were shed, but times change.  There are a lot of ex race bikes in private collections and I'm pretty sure most are missing internals or used worn out parts.  Mine were rebuilt as new inside or as close to it as possible.  I must be dumb or something.......
Title: Re: Blue Haze - a two-stroke miscellany
Post by: teazer on Sep 22, 2016, 00:13:03
Wow.  IS that really Kim Newcombe's bike?  I thought that Rod Tingate rebuilt it or did he build a replica?  Kim's original bike had a Ceriani front brake with Joe Dunphy linings according to a quick googling and not a TD/TZ front anchor.

Fo Sho. 

I build them so they can be filled with pre-mix and oil and taken to a race track to let their little hearts sing.  That's where they are alive and free.  Not in a dusty museum.   It's a joy to watch a real race bike singing to the red line on a track - where they belong.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, I had not heard that before.  And only 120k Euro...  I need to work out how to rob a bank or print money or become a hedge fund manager or manage Wells Fargo - those last two are also bank robbers, but a different kind...   

Back to the bike.  The one in Rod's video has a Ceriani front brake and that was taken relatively recently.  So is Rod's a replica/tribute that is more historically accurate than the original?  He did build the thing in the first place so maybe it's not so much a replica but maybe number 2 off the short production run.
Title: Re: Blue Haze - a two-stroke miscellany
Post by: stroker crazy on Sep 22, 2016, 00:46:47
The concept of 'original' gets a bit slippery here!

They're both Konigs and one has some parts from Kim's crashed bike.  Does the macabre touch of "Remains of the yellow color of Newcombe's racing suit can still be found on the seat's surface" make it more valuable?

I guess the auctioneers think so.

I would love to own that Teaser!

I prefer to have an air cooled motor, if I were a machinist (genius) I would design build a V-4 with two sets of GT550 heads in a FZ600 delta box frame all covered in plastic, an endurance saddle with an extra deep foam hidden by plastic, Dunstal upper and lower with double FZ rounds...  Ossa Copa tail with clear brake light lens, I'm cheap so likely use off the shelf Showa stuff and have racetech set it all up. I would make "room" by designing a triple tree that adds an inch out front, lower the pegs an inch and run 18-18's with Michelin pilots. it would take some trial and error to get it setup right but it would pull me around :o

I would love to do that. But as it is I can't hardly afford to build the one I have much less buy one as awesome as yours sounds. I my goal is get the weight down and the HP to around 90-100 when I am done. Got to finish the cheap redo I am doing on the running bike I have now and then will use that cash to start the GT. Thanks for the offer though.

Tune: That's an awesome looking Ossa.  I ran an SDR (Six Day Replica) for a while and it was a lot of fun.  My preference is small bikes.  I'm not as tall as you so large bikes are more work to ride and just to move around. 

Ply, 90 - 100 rear wheel HP needs a spacer plate and a lot of porting including making the transfers wider.  At that level, the chassis is just a big heavy noodle and needs help.  Forks are too skinny, swingarm is too short and too heavy and not stiff enough.  You can fit Mikes XS emulators and SV650 calipers and modern disks and that makes the front end respectable.  Get a GS750/100/1100 swingarm to lighten and stiffen the rear end.

Or slip it into an FZR1000 frame with engine cradle cut from the stock frame. That way you can go straight to modern  (lighter/stiffer) suspension and wheels.  An early FZR frame is really heavy compared to the latest frames, but so much stiffer than a stocker.

I have two mono shock GT projects in the shop that keep getting pushed further back as others take precedence.  That's a good way to go too, but GSXR forks are short and if you aren't careful the steering geometry will easily get to be unstable.

Tune: That's an awesome looking Ossa.  I ran an SDR (Six Day Replica) for a while and it was a lot of fun.  My preference is small bikes.  I'm not as tall as you so large bikes are more work to ride and just to move around. 

Ply, 90 - 100 rear wheel HP needs a spacer plate and a lot of porting including making the transfers wider.  At that level, the chassis is just a big heavy noodle and needs help.  Forks are too skinny, swingarm is too short and too heavy and not stiff enough.  You can fit Mikes XS emulators and SV650 calipers and modern disks and that makes the front end respectable.  Get a GS750/100/1100 swingarm to lighten and stiffen the rear end.

Or slip it into an FZR1000 frame with engine cradle cut from the stock frame. That way you can go straight to modern  (lighter/stiffer) suspension and wheels.  An early FZR frame is really heavy compared to the latest frames, but so much stiffer than a stocker.

I have two mono shock GT projects in the shop that keep getting pushed further back as others take precedence.  That's a good way to go too, but GSXR forks are short and if you aren't careful the steering geometry will easily get to be unstable.

Got the GS1100 swing arm and the modern forks from a Kawasaki ZX7R. Going incognito to run a modern set of wheels and brakes. I plan on getting the lift plate and the porting done professionally along with a new bore and Pistons since the current bore is shot. Is there any work that can be done with the head?  Thanks.

Or just buy the Dunstall GT750 that I have almost finished.  It runs and sounds amazing and now to fix up the niggling things like tidying up the wiring (again) and fixing the slow leak from the refurbished water pump - it's fixed now with another new mechanical seal.

Gt750 is a big bike and relatively easy to improve and reduce weight and add HP to.

Do you have a thread on the Dunstall  GT750 or pics of it.

Good question.  The first thing to know about a GT750 head is that the bores and combustion chambers don't always match well.  Heads can be 3mm or more offset to one side or the other.  They are also an open or Quiescent design - no squish band at all.  So they need to be modified to match the barrel being used.  You can weld up the chambers and re-machine from scratch or have the head machined to take inserts (domes).  Look at a Banshee Cool Head for ideas.

For a moderate state of tune, you can simply machine the block to get zero deck height and use a thinner head gasket from Cometic and machine 1mm or more off the head to raise compression.  Mine is done that way and is in very milf tune and runs less advance that stock to play safe.

Know the signs of pre-ignition and detonation before its too late.  If the motor doesn't seem happy it'll let you know one way or another.  A $3 colder heat range spark plug turned into a $300 top end.

The bike has generic proportions of a vintage 50cc motogp with a honda hobbit moped engine.  Add a modern watercooled cylinder to bump the hp from 2 to 12.  The tank and seat are steel.  Front brake is from an early kz400, forks are pw80.  All tubing is chromoly.  It's a pig at 145lbs but it scoots.  I rarely drive it around town, mostly to car shows and moped rallies.

It doesn't really reverse the flow, so much as the pressure, the flow outwards is far greater than the flow reversed or how would the engine run at all?

I bet whoever built that is a regular champ at replacing the crank seals that probably tend to make a rapid exit from their intended location ha



my guess is they must use a seal retaining ring of some sort.

It has been extremely windy in the Plains,58 mph yesterday.

My younger son did his Basic Training at Ft. Sill a couple of years ago.
He messaged one day, "Man it's windy here".
I replied "Well Duh... Oklahoma?... Where the wind comes sweeping down the plains?..."
And he says "Yea, I get that... but it Never Fuckin STOPS!!!" :P :P

Lots of innovation there.  Hub center steering, triangulated front end, low low bars.  Looks like a Suzuki Cobra top end but is that a side mounted ie rotary valve carb I see there?  Not necessarily the way that drag bike design evolved but interesting to see what was tried.

Title: Re: Blue Haze - a two-stroke miscellany
Post by: teazer on Jul 24, 2017, 13:05:26
Amazing work.  Can someone explain what he has done and why?

It looks like he took two sets of TZ250G barrels (with fat intake ports stock) and welded in a bridge in the intake and then added reed boxes and rear boost ports.

On the exhaust side he appears to have added a pair of eyebrow ports for more initial time-area and more blowdown T-A.  And he's machined up some new studs to provide space for those extra ports.  But the exhausts are extremely wide and those oval outlets are not stcok on those barrels.  That's an interesting mod.

The reshaped front (main) transfer port was either been welded to allow sufficient bridge to the exhaust ports or has been raised and that would be unusual, so I'm guessing they were also welded.

The welding along the front lower flange and machined away water jackets are very interesting.  Is he running it dry and arranging to have forced air to stop it melting on a long run?  That I don't get. on an LSR bike, weight is less important that power and drag, so there's some thinking that isn't obvious.  If it's to be aircooled, would it not be easier to start with an RD250 barrel or would that need even more welding and machining to work?

Title: Re: Blue Haze - a two-stroke miscellany
Post by: Redbird on Jul 24, 2017, 14:31:59
And, forgive my ignorance, but wouldn't sectioning out the head studs be counterproductive to the clamping strength?
For clarification, I'm not bashing/flaming, just trying to understand.
Title: Re: Blue Haze - a two-stroke miscellany
Post by: teazer on Jul 24, 2017, 15:59:22
Short answer is yes, but how strong do they need to be?  I don;t know but I am guessing that Jeff Henise will soon find out. He still has to cut or roll threads and work out what he's doing about the sleeve nuts.  My guess is he won't use them but will use simple nuts on top of the head.

Those studs look more like 10 or maybe 12mm diameter so it's also possible that he moved them slight outwards at the same time as going up from stock 8mm. The cutaways look to be in odd places and direction but we can't see the ports in relation to them

Gotchya.
I wasn't thinkin they were stepped up in size (or material/alloy strength). I was in the mindset of OEM.

Some early Rotax / Can-Am engines had the rotary valve through the side of the crank web like that. Saw a few engines modified to be that way also. Unique idea.
