WOW, this is an amazing build with WAY more dollars in it than I ever would have guessed. That bike should be a real ripper when it's done!

Nice "all out" project. Suzuki makes a great MXer so you're working from a
strong foundation.

I'm a big fan of REM (ISF), and it really makes a difference on so many levels.
On the other hand, my experience with Micro Blue bearings was less than
good. I used them on a couple of engines when they first arrived on the MX
scene. The results were a lot of money spent with pretty much nothing to
show for it. Using the bearings didn't produce more power either on the
Dyno or by seat-of-the-pants. Also, the bearings didn't wear any better
than OEM. Micro Blue bearings might be beneficial in a super high RPM
pavement pounder, but they aren't really beneficial in a rough and tumble
two stroke MX engine, IMO. I can't really speak on the hot coatings you
plan to use since I never used it on my engines. I know some folks really
like it so it's worth trying.

Good luck with the project, should be quite the high tech showcase when
done.

Looking forward to the updates.

Well, if you put it that way, you're absolutely right.

Those radiators look great! Wonder if then could build me an oem size set with built in bracing rather than the old bolt on braces that are ways too bulky....

Seriously, I love seeing the top details like yours it's fantastic eye candy. Funny thing for me though I'd be afraid to ride gems like that. I throw em on the ground too often. If the graphics ain't peeled back and at least one dent in the pipe I can't ride it.

Nice build!

The carbon hubs were originally off this bike and they're going back on. I'll get new ones for the 265.

It's already pretty light, but, the 144 is going on a crash diet.
Next Items on the list are a Ti rear shock spring, GUTs Racing "phantom" light weight seat foam, and seat cover (hopefully, with a cabon seat base and TI mounts).
The top radiator hose and outlet on the right radiator is coming off and the outlet blocked off.
Mate send this to ADBM when you're done for a feature!
Looks a treat!

I was planning on starting a new thread for this bike. Nothing has gone to plan. Anyway, seems the best place to post the 1st ride vid.

Took the 265 out for it's 1st ride yesterday. I didn't realize we were doing extreme stuff. The battery ran out before it actually got extreme.

Flat tire in the 1st 10 minutes didn't help either lol. Thank God for Tu-Bliss. Spoilt the day for me really though. I wanted to really get on it and see what it could do after having to use so much self control through the engine run in period.


The new Starcross 5 is pretty much a Pirelli MX 32 copy. Just even softer side walls. I can ride the Pirelli with zero psi. The side wall on the Starcross 5 (med) just folded straight under the rim.
Made for some great side ways action on the open stuff lol.

I liked the Starcross 5 front much more than the Pirelli, the rear not so much, but that Pirelli MX32 is hard to beat.
I hate miss matching but I'll be running Pirelli soft on the rear, soft Starcross 5's on the front.



Knobs were hitting the chain on this side.



I just put air in it. Inflated no probs, looks fine. I have no idea why it lost psi.

My kill switch is rooted as well, kept cutting the engine and sticking on.
There's always small bugs to sort out on a custom bike though. Over all, it was pretty good. It's far from finished.

Flipped trying to get out of the river bed (no vid sorry), broke the rear guard (got spares) and trashed the FMF Gnarly pipe. which is good, they suck! Wanted a Fatty anyway.

Part of the ride.
