Yeah my brother has a yz450f with one, I really liked it actually. No more stalling in the corners that's for sure. Never tried one on a 2 stroke though.

The TM's are handbuilt in Italy, they have been around since the late 70's. They are super trick top of the line components and the rest of the parts are built in house. I can honestly say this thing is amazing to ride, they are not quirky like some other euro exotics I have ridden. Also how many 2 strokes can you still plate as street legal?

I have a Rekluse on both of my main bikes (YZ295 2t with WR trans and a CRF450R) I love it, makes really difficult hillclimbs look easy. Its fun watching people have yard sales back down the hill trying the same thing I just demonstrated, lol. Is that mean?

I probably dont "need" one on the YZ but I'm sure not taking it off, lol.

I am supposed to get a vid of myself riding a high speed stand up wheelie (at least 60mph) over the trestles bridge on the railroad tracks this weekend between Ocotillo and Superstition if I can muster the balls, lol. But I'm gonna do it on the thumper, its easier... .

I had a chance to demo a 2013 Beta 300RR yesterday, really nice bike awesome motor with e-start and cornered better than any bike I have ridden. I didn't care for the ergos, small tank and the suspension needed to be dialed.

Cody Webb won King of Motos this year on one beating out Graham Jarvis. Link to American Beta 300RR 2-stroke http://www.americanbeta.com/node/801

Yeah king of motos was a good race for Cody. Trials background does a lot for riding bikes. I'll be at a couple of the trials nationals this summer minding for a rider and the world event in Tennessee. I'll be sure to get a lot of pictures in TN.

Question for you guys... So couple weeks ago I rode my dirt bike to my buddies house from my house, probably like 2 miles apart. When I got there I shut it off and took a leak. Got back on to ride and it wouldn't start, figured oh maybe the plug got fouled so I changed it and realized I wasn't getting any spark.. wtf? (04 ktm 125)

Chromoly should be TIG and by someone that knows what they are doing though. Otherwise its going to be brittle and continue to crack over and over

Already been welded twice, this will be the 3rd time just the welds keep making stress points for the non cracked part of the frame. Bout to just buy a used one off of ebay for like 150 bucks.
