New to this forum but know many here already from the other forums and the tracks. I work Fire/EMS in Zanesville and Track Medical at MidOhio. Also a CCW Instuctor. Looking to Find a 100 and 450 and race OMRL this season so if you wanna sell let me know. Prolly do a few MotoSeries events too. Like to see an all Grom class develop too.

I know at least two will be racing Groms this season. I am sure more will show on race day. Get one and join us.

Takes a lot more than two to make it's own class though. I know Hoblick will be on the other one, he's a friend of mine. Looking at the rules and bikes, I'm not sure they'll be competitive in the F3 class. I plan on getting one for street play but I probably won't race it until a Grom class is formed.

I've looked at that ad a couple times, he has come down. It started at 1300. He has an RMZ450 too.

Here was my transformation from a complete dirt machine. http://miniroadracers.informe.com/forum/post23586.html?hilit=crf%20transformation#p23586 Everyone on this board is more than happy to help with any questions.


You can pick up the can here http://www.ebay.com/itm/121275324241?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I can hook you up with a mounting bracket, you just need to tap another hole in this canister!

More info on catch can and vent lines. http://miniroadracers.informe.com/forum/post23520.html?hilit=catch%20can#p23520

BT45's tires seem to be the "IT" tire for XR racing.. but if you are looking to save some $$ Chris (rk97) is selling a pr of ML75 tires and tubes for $40, they were used 1 season and have plenty of meat left on them.

Thanks for the info Jim, I'll be looking into those links. I'll need all the conversion info I can get. I've never worked on, converted or even rode a mini lol. Or rode CRP.
I plan on the BT45 though. Looking into the need for springs as well.
Where is everyone getting tires, springs, wheels, mini parts in general from?

I can help you out along the way!! I am so excited for the 2014 season helping you out will pass the time quicker! :mrgreen:

How much do you weigh?

I found that Dennis Kirk seemed to have good prices on BT45's and free shipping. You want the 100/90 16 size front and back. $82/each
https://www.denniskirk.com/bridgestone/front-bt45h-100-90h-16-blackwall-tire.p540179.prd/540179.sku

16" tubes 3.25-3.5" $12/each
https://www.denniskirk.com/irc/16-in-inner-tube-with-chrome-stem.p54147.prd/54147.sku

You need a CRF80 16" front wheel, needs to be OEM. ebay has one from an '06 right now for $125 buy now, bidding ends tomm and its at $51 $100-125 for a clean CRF front wheel is a good deal.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/CRF80F-XR80R-Front-Wheel-Rim-Tire-Hub-CRF-XR-80-CRF80-XR80-100-/301099177263

While you have the wheels apart, clean up the brakes and pop in some new EBC shoes. $14/pr
https://www.denniskirk.com/ebc/sport-carbon-x-brake-shoes.p194982.prd/194982.sku


The following items you can get at Ronayers.com

You have an '05 so you will need the needle jet assy. part# 16012-KN4-A10 $17 http://www.ronayers.com/Search.aspx?k=16012-KN4-A10%09

Pick up a 102 main jet also $4 http://www.ronayers.com/Search.aspx?k=99101-GHB-1020

You will also want a 38 pilot jet pn# 99103-KA9-0380 http://www.ronayers.com/Search.aspx?k=99103-KA9-0380

Here is some info to get ya started! Will post more later.

You are running a 3 digit number, you can find guys on ebay that can print you some stylish number plates for under $20. Just make sure you mention number plate size.. some 5" tall numbers can be 8"-10" total width. You need less than 8" wide. I have used this seller a few times http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-COLOR-Custom-Racing-Number-Plate-Vinyl-Decals-Dirt-Bike-Moto-MX-ATV-MOTOCROSS-/151235031392?pt=Race_Car_Parts&vxp=mtr&hash=item23364f7160

Not sure if you saw the setup sticky thread but here it is again: http://miniroadracers.informe.com/forum/tech-questions-f2/xr-crf-100-setup-guide-t2745.html

Bought this set today
