Of course I could have. I worked on two strokes (chain saws) when I was a forest firefighter for the Dept of Interior BLM. I am just anticipating your (longie, seruzawacko, Capt., and you) questions ahead of time.
I have ridden a dirt bike (every kid that grows up in Western Colorado has). I thought Buz was talking about knowing how a two stoke worked. i.e. by taking one apart, doing maintenance, repairing, etc.
Um......This one time, in band camp I saw an oil filter......
Looks like a fun way to spend a winter eh? turning a race bike into a streeter. This looks more like a Utah-wide-open-spaces bike than a DC city bike. Maybe he'll sell it to you!
Maybe you could rig a charging system off an old RT3 or something. I don't know how you'd get a lighting circut out of a race spec CDI but If you rode around without your headlight on you'd just need the battery for brake lights and blinkers. Once you got out of town you wouldn't even need them.
You should make an offer Dr. Ser. I'll come down an help you ride it if you like.
The coolest thing they ever did with the TZ750 was when they stuffed the motor in a dirtbike chassis and KR rode it at Indy to the win. I was there that night, and it was awesome to see. They interviewed Kenny after the race and he said "They don't pay me enough to ride that thing". A true testiment to the beast that motor was. It was banned soon after that.
Good thing dypshyt taught me about 2 strokes. I helped port the heads on my bro's Super Rat when I was 10. Not to mention helping him rebuild his Maico and CZ dirt bikes in my mid teens. Of course, the guy doing the teaching can't even do a simple valve clearance check on his bike. Then again, what did we expect from a complete a$$hole?
