Rick. Loving all you’re doing with this build. Very curious as to how it will run.

Good Luck

Dry clutch parts are getting harder to find so since this is going to be a street bike.
I removed all of the dry clutch parts and even the spr transmission. I also have a nos clutch plates and springs for the dry clutch. But I'm putting them away and going to run the wet clutch.

Since the wet are more common and the plates and springs are the same as the current gen yz125. I'm also running a R transmission because that really tall first gear in the spr transmission makes it a bitch for stop n go for street use.

So whenever I do sale it I'll have a good dry clutch and transmission i can put on it.

At least they are 2T's. New? TPI? They are gorgeous.

Yeah they are brand spanking new 2021's not tpi because they are the SX models so still carb'd. Only the woods versions have tpi. I didn't want a tpi bike mainly because I mostly ride motocross practice days and i don't think tpi is quite there yet for mx use.
I've ridden a tpi it's cool but it's a bit too smooth lacks the hit of a carb.

no smoke no poke

Understood, Rick. This is the last picture in which they will be virgin/clean.

I've been considering a dirt bike. I live in the middle of thousands of acres of primitive, unclaimed strip mines. I rode the trails around here on a Suzuki TS 250 back in the early '70's. No don't need to wait for track days. A TPI bike may be perfect for me.

Have fun.

The tpi if you haven't ridden one, oh your in for a treat. The never bog smooth power and the insane luggable power will blow your mind.

My friend foolishly tried to stall the 250 tpi we rode. Was done riding it getting ready to get off it. Was in first at an idle clutch pulled in. Let's the clutch out thinking it's gonna stall and it starts chugging out from under him. If i was a total woods guy I'd be on one. But i ride lots of motocross tracks 2 weeks ago I was out at washougal.
