The engine fitted to this bike is a 2-cylinder 90-degree V-configuration in 2-stroke mode cycle. It is forward inclined at 20-degree for lower center of gravity. The crankshaft is 180-degree and made to be strong and compact. To reduce the friction from the piston to the wall of the cylinder block, SBC cylinder plating is applied to replace the conventional cast iron sleeves. SBC stands for Suzuki Boron Composite that plates the aluminium cylinder inner walls with a special alloy plating that consists of nickel and phosphor alloy carrying boron bromide. This reduces the friction and increases the durability of the piston rings.  Continue reading “1988 Suzuki RGV250 – the closest thing you could get to a GP bike on the road in 80’s”

Modified Yamaha RX-Z Motocross Style

Ady Sevens shared the link about this Yamaha RX-Z modified to motocross style as seen on Mudah.my. This kind of mod is very unusual since most RX-Z are modded lightly just to make it street legal but powerful and fast. This one in motocross style are equipped with monoshock rear suspension and the exposed front suspension that it makes it looks very different. We can only see the RX-Z design cues from the unmistaken look of the fuel tank. Good mod bro!

Thanks to Ady Sevens for sharing.
