1990 Honda VTR 250

I bought it and seized for $100, and spent a buying parts on Ebay and it together. The engine is amazing. Two four cams, 16 valves, and rpm! Wow.

But it’s 250cc, so it’s not very

I custom fabricated the exhaust mandrel bent tubing I from JC Whitney.


After Race Preparation

about the bodywork: It looks cool because it doesn’t on this bike, it belongs on a Grand Prix bike. If you small bikes and you want to go buy a GP bike! Cheetah makes the I used, but it was a gamble, and it failed.

how short it is. It should extend the pipes. It was equally narrow. it will not fit around your unless you get dropped bars and I removed all of my gauges and ran a small tachometer/temp gauge (AIM 3). The rear frame was cut off and a special was designed to support the rear

It was a lot of work, and I have a mill and a TIG I would not recommend it to anyone!

4-3-03: I got plates and insurance week, and I rode it to work After realizing how much fun it is to Rhonda decided that I keep it. It is an incredible way to reduce and I think she can tell. Do I think safe? Not really, but I have a amount of respect for it, and I am going to a lot about where I ride.

I try to stay out of heavy traffic It doesn’t have much and that is good for me. A big bike make me do really stupid but this one’s just a Am I wishy washy?

Yes, but I a weakness for things with

5-9-03: I have ridden to twice now, and decided it was enough. It’s not fun feeling target. In the last week I custom dual exhaust the picture above), opened up the and added a two stage jet kit.

For the time, I feel like the wants to go much faster the streets allow. With the new and cutting off the rear pegs, I 8 lbs off the bike. It now weighs 350 lbs with a tank of gas.

I should have dyno soon. Today I just got from the racetrack, and I will be the same. But one thing is for certain, what I’ve done the bike on a racetrack, I will ride on the street again.

The pictures are taken at Grattan. I through the Performance Street School through FastTrax. The did excellent at Grattan, because it is a technical course.

I was gaining on the big guys who have ridden a and I’ve been on a bike for a month. Of course on the strait they wiped me up!

5-19-03: I disassembled the bike completely, and I am to remove weight. I have all the street stuff that I need at the track. I am at the point I could spend too much on a nothing bike, but if I bought a track bike, I think I get out of control. Besides, making to something is the best part of a I just ordered some springs today to keep it diving so much under and I am contemplating race fairings.

I had it dynoed at a whopping 26.5 HP at the wheel. Pretty pathetic, But man, can it lean. I am mounting the higher on the bike so I don’t them completely off!

is coming back to Grattan in I hope to be ready to go back with slicks and leathers and get serious!

These are some I machined, complete with fasteners

Adapting the fairings

My slicks

Custom pegs and rearsets

I also shortened the and tried to run them at equal which put the left side coming straight back, and the side pipe angling up. I cut at the dyno to see what effect it It gave me about 1 hp, but was it because of the length, or absence of mufflers? Who Even with the first of full length exhaust the two shorty mufflers, it was measured at 110 dB.

7 -15-03: This last was very expensive, but more worth it. I went to race with Fasttrax and I am now a licensed The head of Fasttrax sold me a set of leathers for $150, (quite a bit than $1000, huh?) I Sunday, and I am still pinching I can’t believe it happened.

The slicks stuck, the leathers the sliders for my knees were a lot, and I got some great from a track photographer. I am hooked on racing. Someday I be able to afford it on 4 wheels, but for I am loving it on two!

Look at the dragging, how cool is that?

You have to believe me, but I really am not getting passed!

At the end of my last I broke a chain and almost my chance to race. The chain the engine case tabs held the chain cover on, but the was OK. I didn’t need that anyway, it was just extra

You can see the broken aluminum top and bottom.

my good friend Ricardo up as I was pushing my bike into the He fixed the chain for me while I was at my meeting. This is Ricardo Pit working on the bike. This is used without permission. ) how high tech my paddock hanger is? My race set-up budget to say the least.

Cheapest bike, cheapest no trailer. I think that’s why I was harder than them in my flying around the track!

It’s been an incredible I have never had so much fun in my The bike has served me well, and I I made the cheapest entrance into racing.

However, curve is tapering off, and the is leaving me at the apex. I rode at raceway not long ago with Bike Track Time. I in the advanced group with expert level racers.

I was the bike under 600cc at the After I got comfortable with a new it was clear even to Rhonda my talent far exceeded the bike. I I have a weight advantage in the but the amount by which I was gaining on was not equal to my weight advantage. She tell that I would do with a bigger bike.

I looked forward to making the 250 a over the winter, but the money never come back to me, and I that there was a much way to go faster. The wrong thing to do is buy new and modify what you have. The thing to do is to buy a used track that someone else their money into.

So the first thing I had to do was accept the that I am a hypocrite for telling I would stay away big bikes. OK, done. The next to do was to find the bike. That one was easier. It kind of fell my lap.

So, without further here is the new bike. Click .
