Just curious what other board members may use to run around the track (or somewhere else) instead of cranking up their primary ride.

I've got a 50cc Malaguti Foggy rep, punched out to 70cc, with a racing pipe and shock. Good for about 53 mph on level ground. Every now and then I'll take it out on a secondary road and mix it up with traffic just to show other folks that scooters can be cool too!

Re: (Capt. Home Slice)

I have a Yamaha Zuma (first generation model). It has all the qualities a good pit bike MUST have:

- Able to be ridden with one hand, so you can carry stuff with the other

- Room on the floor board to carry a fuel jug or a set of wheels/tires

- Electric start

- Passenger seat (and I've carried two adult passengers on it!)

- Luggage rack with home-made trailer hitch so I can tow a little garden trailer behind it

- Decent top speed (about 45mph with a tail wind)

- Fat tires that give it decent off-road capability

- Doesn't look completely gay - only slightly gay

There are a lot of little pit bikes out there that look cool and are fun to ride, but as far as I'm concerned, a pit bike is a tool. If it doesn't have all those utility aspects, it's just a waste...

Re: (AZ Scott)


list of mods so long, it would be easier to tell you what's still stock: frame, wheels, motor bottom end.

Re: What Kind of Pit Bike Do You Have? (Qwak748)

Qwak748, my X-24 kicked ass this weekend at Fontana!

I rode it around all weekend including countless trips around the paddock and back and forth from hot pit lane to the garages. It was even able to pull me hanging on to a Handy trailer packed full with stands, tool box and honda generator! Suprisingly, it could run right over garden and air hoses without a problem and it would run the whole day with out a recharge.

Don't forget wheelie. What fun is a pit bike that can't wheelie?

I have a TTR125L w/ dirt track tires.
