Hi everyone, i'm Nuno and have this strange passion for 2 stroke bikes ^-^
This is my presentation:
I live in the south of Portugal near this big sea port, called Sines.
Since 2013 i've been importing this Japanese bikes, mainly through UK because Portuguese taxes from ouside EU are very very hi, so i bought the bikes from dealers in UK, with British plate, and here they are.
In the garage i have a 1991 Yamaha TZR 250 3XV, a 1991 Honda NSR 250 MC21, a 1991 Suzuki RGV 250 VJ22 (this came from Germany), a 1991 Gilera Crono 125 (bought in Valencia, Spain), a Yamaha DT 125R from 2003, a Portuguese 1989 Famel XF 17 Super with 50cc Zundapp engine, a 1985 Portuguese Macal M83 with an Italian P6R engine (still in recovering project), a 2003 scooter Yamaha Aerox 50cc, and the last aquisition, a 1990 Yamaha R1Z 250 witch is still in things to complete. Th next project will be a 3MA... ::)
I will try to put photos of some of the bikes, sory for the quality (Chinese phone...).
I hope i can learn a lot with all of you here, as i'm just a courious and a weekend mechanic.
And when i'll be authorised, i might need to buy some parts tha i'm needing.
For now, all the best to you guys.
Regards, Nuno

Hello  From West Cornwall UK.
Been into 2 strokes forever, at 16 it all started with a NSU Quickly.
In recent years TDR250 then 31K.
In last few weeks a R1Z & still own a YDS5E bought in 2002, just fitted new crank, bought from US in 2003.
Sold lots of bikes should not have & bitterly regret, the TDR & the 31K just so much fun, smile on your face with every ride.
Cheers guys Keith
You can't keep a good 2 Stroke down.
YDS5E  R1Z

If you want a Yamaha you are in the right place

If you are after an NSR join an NSR group.

Hi everybody!

Just brought a 89 3MA in UK (Minehead), and very happy to find this forum.

The bike is only 1100km, but need some small restoration (filter, rust, and fuel tank very rusty.

By the past i owned almost only 2 strokes, beginning by rs aprilia (96 50, 99 125, 99 250), and 2001 5KE TZ (what a machine).

Now i’m planning on finishing my two cagiva mito, and of course the TZR.
Very scared about jettings and stories i’m reading, but in love with this bike.

I’m in south of France, hope to make one day a trip with others TZR.

Hi everyone, hope I am doing this right.  I'm a Japanese grey market junkie. Lived in Japan for a bit in the early 90's, started the addiction when I bought a 1987 FZR400 and rode all over Tokyo.  20 years later and a lot of research my goal was to have one of everything that I thought was cool looking and not common here, still working on that.  Looking to share some info, learn more and sell some of my bikes to buy others and do different things.  I have had a few TZRs but I only have one now, 1992. I have never ridden it but I am thinking of selling it and some others because I have too many bikes to tend to and in the last year I got into enduro and MX riding, mostly MX riding, 2017 YZ250F.  Got crazy bored the last 6 weeks nursing my fractured collarbone... price to play I guess, depressing as I was having so much fun!!! I am sure I am not alone on here. Look forward to meeting some follow bike lovers.  Thank you.

Ha! maybe.. but the sound of a CBR250R turning 17,000rpm, like an indy car coming around the corner and yet you can get off and walk cause your only going 15mph...

I've been in the TZR forums since c. 2000 or 2001.
Me and the teezer last circulated the Pembrey circuit in 2003.
Since then its been eaten by rodents,moisture and time.

This year I finally bought some parts to put it back together (-P)

So as of ….NOW, I'll be in the shed pulling the primary gears off an old rusty blob, to reinstall on a nice wibbly blob. Cranks are better with a bit of wibble.

Jeez I was 20 when I built the bike last time......that was half my life ago  :(

 I used to know a lot more technical terms back then too, now its all metal-y bits held together with tiny helter skelter looking doodads....I.m sure it'll come flooding back soon :-\ .

Hope not to bother you guys too much, but i'm sure i'll need a gentle nudge here and there when things go wrong.

Toodles  (-P)

Hi Mojoracinguk.

Study a few projects for a quick lesson in terminology and maintenance. A project thread tends to follow a more logical progression than trying to read through the forum in general. Paul and Phil both have excellent, documented builds. I've got one that just finished. I was a lot like you. Lots of 2T experience, but it was 30 years old. Then I got a 3xv. Locked it up on a track day. The project is based on the rebuild. 

Good luck.

Hello to you all  :D
I,ve hovered around the site for a while and finally bit the bullet and registered. I,ve been a Yam 2 stroke owner since 1982 (mainly aircooled RD,s) My Tzr ownership started early 90,s with a written off 250 2ma. I then bought an 88 tzr125 (brilliant bike) to get to work on as my RD400 got nicked. To cut a story short,after a drunken night out and wondering what to do with the written off 2ma and a parts mule RD I had left ...this was the result.
