Dude, where do you get a Mito in the Bay Area? I find myself very interested in the Mito SP 525...

Man, we got some really cool rides in this thread.
Keep 'em coming people!
Roundboyfriend (are you married yet?),
The sub 500 2 strokes are plenty powerful, but the real performance advantage is the light weight and corner speed of these machines.
What's the wet weight of some of you guys 250's?

I do not know how much my NSR250 weighs. But I do know that no GSXR can keep up with it in a corner. Been to Sears and T-Hill with it to find that one out.
Here is a picture of it with it's cloths off.

These were taken right after I got done with the new paint job. It is a rattle can job too. When I got it, it was wearing beat up cracked and rashed Rothmans clothing like the above bike. But WAYYYY uglier. Te pipes were rusted and tyhe gauge pack was zip tied on. The engine wasd seized and the front cylinder destroyed. I put in a SP motor with the dry clutch. The big plus is it is sittimg on a set of magtek magnesium wheels. It started life as an R model. I am doing similar work to the NS400R.

This is what BOTH of the pegs look like now. Notice the aluminum curled off the back side of the peg. Now that is how to ride a 2 stroke!!

Have you checked your laptimes on the MC21? Because it really bothers me that no NSR250s compete in 250 Superbike.

Here's my old '90 NSR250 ('90 was first year of the trick MC21) streetbike from when I lived in Tokyo. It was a standard R model (derestricted of course) but my NSR-expert friend helped fit the more-adjustable forks and dry clutch from an SE model. Add an Ohlins rear shock, WP steering damper, and Michelin Hi-Sport Race 3 tires (Michelin's best street tire of the 1997 timeframe), it was pure sex on wheels when the road got twisty.

I did not get a clock on it. But I think like 2:03.5 or something like that.
Hopefully next year My better half Kathryn will be running HER MC21SP in 250 superbike.
I would race mine but it is plated and is just too darn nice to kill it on the track. I think there is a guy who ran 45.5's at the last sears. He competed in Formula Pacific and did not finish last.

A KR sighting is about as rare as seeing Bigfoot.

Where do you find spares?
