I have a few two strokes but this is the one I’m currently using.

I love these beautiful Yamaha 2 strokes !!!

Enjoy yours !!!




I won Hill climb champs on mine in South Africa in 1985.

The standard exhaust pipes were very cleverly made , cut the weld in the middle , open it , remove a single baffle , and reweld , almost perfect expansion box .

Then remove the baffle , and put a tube in , with hundreds of holes drilled in it , and you had a stinger , with just enough silencing to pass the 106 decibels test at 5000 rpm !!!

That was faster than a 1000 cc Suzuki or Honda up to 120 miles per hour , with a few mods to the air box and jetting !!!

I loved that bike , but as always , it was sold to finance the next bike ...

The bike was set up by a guy called Dave Whattam and the pipes are his design with a set of TZ silencers fitted.
It goes really well but has a thirst like Oliver Reed on a stag night !

Like that a lot, lovely bike. A mate had one when they first can out, we all thought it was the best thing ever.
Which it was when you had TS185's and DT175's as your bench mark.

Riding these bikes takes you back to a time when things were more simple. Swapping back wheels with your pal to get through an mot, nicking petrol out of your dads lawnmower etc.
Those of us who know how well the stink wheels go never underestimate them.
I remember when Mat Oxley lapped the TT at 100mph on a 36 bhp TZR 250.
