Blue Haze - a two-stroke miscellany
« 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!

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.

hey Hoof, where you been ? Apart from in the garage planning that extra 5 mph !!!! Time we had an LSR update on our favourite salt racer.
