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.
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].
