Welcome guys (-P) That RD made me do a double take! Had to reread the description to figure out what's going on there! 8)

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.
Current:
1992 TZR250
1992 NSR250SE
1992 CBR400RR
1988 FZR400
1992 RGV250
1989 FZR1000
1988 CBR250R
1992 NSR250SP
.....
Yikes! doing this list I think I have a screw(s) loose.

I think you have what we all want in terms of collecting bikes :o Really like that 3XV, I am quite partial towards that colour scheme, have a 3XV4 as well. (-P)

David,

Please post some photos of the TZR engined hovercraft if you have the chance, as well as photos and further details of the modifications you have carried out - I'm interested to see them and I'm sure other members would be too.

Thanks & regards,
James

Hi Again Guys,

Thank you for the responses, and welcoming me to the forum,

Attached are pictures of my hovercraft, and of my home built TZR Hybrid :- It started life as a TZR 250 2ma Case, that was machined then to take custom intakes welded in, these housed RS125 V-force reeds.  It also runs 2XT cylinders, With Mikuni TMX 35mm carbs as well.

I only had a days worth of running out of this set up so far, but we made power equivalent to my top end tuned TZR even in that limited time. Much more to come from it.

If there is any more interest I shall write in the project section.

That's really impressive work there,  now I understand what you mean about the engine being no use in a motorbike

Good stuff - thanks David. I for one would be interested in learning more about how you modified the engine, mounted it in the boat, fabricated the pipes etc. I'd also be interested to learn if there are any considerations applicable to using these engines in hovercraft which may not be applicable to their usual uses.

Regards,
James

Hello,

My name is Ed fresh owner of a TZR 3ma , I would like to get it running again so crankseals and bearing need replacement.

I bought a set of Wossners but it seems the comp.height is 30mm instead of 30.50mm...does anyone no the comp. and dome height of a OEM 3MA piston ?

Thx,
Ed

Hi all,
Just wanted to say hello. I've not spent much time on the forum yet and still working it all out. I've got a blue TZR250 2MA which was my first ever bike after getting my bike licence. Its been a bit neglected for quite a few years having been set aside after moving on to bigger sized bikes but I never got rid of it. Glad I didn't! Hoping to get it back on the road, now, but its going to take quite a bit of TLC to get there. Got my carbs refurbished a Coln engineering in Gloucester. Nice guys. Carbs back on the bike. Waiting for a part for the air filter which I bought through Ebay. Once it arrives, I should be able to kick it over and see if there is still some life in the engine. Keeping my fingers crossed that all goes smoothly! Found some invaluable information on the forum. I've found it to be a fountain of knowledge for all things TZR!!

Yes. Besides the wealth of knowledge from guys who've had these bike for almost 20 years, the camaraderie here is very strong. Some disagreements, but no vitriol or Facebook-like BS. Also, no politics, except maybe complaints about shipping anomalies and fees.

Welcome. If you read through the entire forum, there's older versions available. HA.
