That'll be a bit lighter for sure. Have to wonder how well a built 80hp Banshee motor would fit though?

I like the way the front mudguard shows "eight valve"  Strokers with 8 valves?

Guy is spot on! I hated to take the nice chrome decals off,and I got to thinking. Hey it still has 8 valves so I can leave them on.

I got tired of waiting over 3 months for my custom exhaust so I took matters into my own hands.She is all done,weighs under 250# with 2 gallons of fuel and it "feels very sporty"  ;D :D ;) :)

Must be a "Blast" to ride. That looks like a big reed block on it. Is it still a 200? Lots of room in the engine bay for something larger too. IT250 or 425 maybe.

4mm stroker crank,1.25mm overbore,so it is 217cc versus 196cc stock.A "real" ride report to follow.

40 miles under the belt,jetting is sorted out.This combo makes about 40 horses at the rear wheel[at best] and weighs 100lbs less than the 'ole dragbike with 50.3hp.

I sold the Blaster bike last October with 3200 miles on it. It worked very well, got great mileage and turned plenty of heads. Handled great too. I won bike of the month on dotheton.com and twostrokeworld.com. Just thought I would give an update.
