WHEN TWO-STROKES RULED THE EARTH

WHEN TWO-STROKES RULED THE EARTH Two-stroke engines are perfect for off-road vehicles and ATVs. They're powerful, but yet simple and lightweight. No matter if they're in two-wheelers, three-wheelers, or four-wheelers, two-stroke engines allow the vehicles to be nimble and the riders to move quickly across the earth's natural terrain. It's a shame that you can no longer buy a new quad with a two-stroke engine in it. However, there are still plenty out on the trails. Many riders are still addicted to the quick, snappy power…

STREET-LEGAL 3-WHEELER

STREET-LEGAL 3-WHEELER In most states, a 3-wheeler is considered a motorcycle and is regulated under those rules. Motorcycles are street legal if they come with the required equipment, so, therefore, 3-wheelers can fall under the street legal category too. The easiest way to make a 3-wheeler street legal is, to begin with a street-legal dirt bike. These have been called Dual-Sports and lately, the bigger ones get the Adventure Bike title. If you add brake lights, turn signals, mirrors, and such to your Honda ATC250R,…

KTM 505 SX

By the Staff of Dirt Wheels KTM 505 SX What is the best high-performance quad? If you're talking about what you can buy new today then that would have to be Yamaha's YFZ450R. However, if you were going to include all quads made in the last 10 years, then you'd have to consider the KTM 505 SX. Stephane LeBlanc is a Dirt Wheels reader who owns a 2010 KTM 505 SX and he seems quite pleased with its performance. The photo of it here shows that he keeps it clean, well maintained, and in good shape. It's a shame that KTM…

HOT 1979 HONDA ATC70

By the Staff of Dirt Wheels HOT 1979 HONDA ATC70 Francis Raynauld is a Dirt Wheels reader up in Quebec, Canada and here is the 1979 Honda ATC70 that he put together. You'll note that the engine is not the stock 70 unit.  It is a 160cc engine purchased from one of those pit bike companies. Their motor mounts are designed to lineup with ATC and mini frames. Some of the most fun you can have is getting a bunch of ATC70s together and racing around a small oval. It's a total blast when those things drift out sideways…

HONDA ATC450RF

By the staff of Dirt Wheels HONDA ATC450RF It seems like 3-wheelers have been gaining in popularity the past few years. So much so that all of the manufacturers have a bunch of new 3-wheelers in their showrooms now. Okay, we're making a joke. In case you didn't know, 1986 was the last model year for new 3-wheelers. Thus the case for the HONDA ATC450RF.  However, that doesn't stop enthusiasts from getting a new 3-wheeler. Well, at least the configuration is new. You see, the hottest 3-wheelers today are converted…

KTM 2-STROKE 3-WHEELER

By the staff of Dirt Wheels KTM 2-STROKE 3-WHEELER It would be great if KTM made 3-wheelers, but since they don't Nico Smith built one himself down in Laredo, Texas. He started with the frame of a 2002 KTM 250 SX dirt bike. For the engine, he installed a freshly rebuilt 2003 KTM 300 EXC 2-stroke. The seat and rear fenders came from a 2009 KTM quad. The wider triple clamps for the forks came from Emig Racing. Nico made the swing arm and sub-frame himself. Various other parts came from Yamaha Banshees and Tri-Zs.…
