    Big shout of to Vancouver Supermoto for building the "warness" on my motard. It made wiring the entire bike so simple. Plug and play, literally.




    Gas tank molding (this was one of the more difficult parts of the build).


    Head stay mounts and brackets

    I'm still working on the jetting. After about 250 miles of riding I'm still running a little rich. Jetting this monster is a slow and expensive process.

    I was running the 40mm Lectron but I could never get it to idle right. I went back to a PWK.

    I wish I could tig like that! This was done by a local motor fabrication company that builds race engines and have done some work for Nascar teams. They do really great work and this was their first two stroke project.

    Thanks!! Here are two really poor quality videos that my friends have made with my footage. I'll compile all of my footage soon and post it up.

    Right now I'm running a 15T front and a 40T rear. I've done some experimenting with different gearing and this seems to be the perfect combination of torque and speed. It will still lift the front in every gear but will also cruise at 80mph at about 4100 RPM.

    Bondi Engines in Toronto, just did a full motor rebuild to include Crank, seals, bearings, Weisco Piston (drilled), and brand new OEM cylinder. All just preventive maintenance.

    If you've never used Bondi Engines, I'd highly recommend them. The high level of professionalism and workmanship is bar none. They are undoubtedly the best two stroke engine builder in Canada and with the Canadian dollar so low, it should be all that more appealing for US based customers.

    Sweet ride!!!


    How did you get it plated in Canada? As far as I know, it's now impossible to plate an offroad vehicle here in Canada.

I would like to make a serious bet with you. If I can achieve 200KPH and prove it by whatever means we can agree to be reasonable, you PayPal me $100 USD. If I fail to do so within an agreed reasonable amount of time, I'll PayPal you $250 USD.

    Let me know what ya think old fella, can you put your money where your mouth is?
