Listen to L.A.Sleeve's Dave Metchkoff's revealing interview with Pitt Pass Moto on sponsoring $7000 in prize money for the Two Stroke World Championship, industry trends, and life and zombies with 2 strokes.
Corona, CA – Despite several time - consuming issues that would have discouraged others, the Bonanza Plumbing - backed Monster Energy / THR Motorsports / Precision Concepts Kawasaki team, presented by Hoosier Precision Machining, persevered to win the 47 th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 and, with that historic triumph, the 2014 SCORE World Desert Championship.
When Ryan Abbatoye, Justin Seeds and I decided we wanted to race the 10 Hours of Glen Helen we started thinking of a way to make the experience a bit different for us. As fate would have it, Justin had a 2003 KX250 two stroke that he was just starting to assemble and it didn’t take much deliberation for us to come to the conclusion that racing a two stroke sounded like a lot of fun. Justin delivered the bike to Precision Concepts and a couple weeks later we had a race bike. We couldn’t wait to start burning laps on it.
Two Strokin the 10 hour at Glen Helen ! Looking forward to a fun day tomorrow.
Riders: Robby Bell, Justin Seeds, Ryan Abbatoye
This was the first time the WORCS series had ventured out to the Ridgecrest fairgrounds, but having raced there a few times in the past I had a slight suspicion that the course was going to be fast and full of chop. The track definitely lived up to my impression...
4WD Mechanix Magazine's Honda XR650R motorcycle came with very low hours on the bike. Unfortunately, the air filter had been sealing badly, and the result was an engine with damaged valves and excessively low compression. We turned to L.A. Sleeve Company for its Moly 2000 iron/chrome-moly alloy cylinder sleeve and cylinder head rebuilding [HD Video].
LAPC's 2013–'14 Honda CRF450 piston kit is a performance-based piston that enhances power without diminishing reliability. Purpose: The stock 2013-'14 CRF450 produces the least horsepower in the 450 class. This isn't a dealbreaker, as the powerband is easy to ride and very tractable. But since it gives up as much as 5 horsepower to the competition, it needs more oomph...
At the last round, Robby spotted the field a bit of a lead with a four kick start. From there it was all business. He moved up to second by the third lap and began a battle with Bobby Garrison. These two pulled away and had a two man race for the win. After a back and forth battle, Robby took the lead for good with a few laps remaining and finished first with a 38 second margin.
US-based L.A.Sleeve is supporting a new generation of hot rodders by supplying centrifugally spun-cast ductile iron cylinder sleeve liners for fast road and drag-race use. Aluminum-block motors used in today's vehicles are very good for their intended purpose. But sometimes they're not quite as good as the factory engineer would like. L.A.Sleeve believes it can make the alloy blocks perform better and surpass expectations.
