    lol. A little fiddling with the air screw can take some of the pain away.

    I was kind of impressed riding it. With some practice I felt like I could keep it on the boil more.

    Soooo much more planted than my katie-m. Despite the short screws.

    Rider skill level. I now have two dirt bikes that are exceptionally over powered. I'd really like to get it to come on sooner and more progressively, but I suppose I could just learn to ride it as is.

    You should have ridden it before. It's noticeably stronger now.

    Re: Ice Ice baby

    My main issue with 250 2 stroke dirtbikes is that they hit way too hard right off the bottom. As spectacular as it looks, it's not fun coming out of a rutted corner leaned over, in a wheelie, legs dangling behind and eyes as big as pancakes.

    Go down on carb size, you'll fatten the bottom a bit, and cut off the top some, making the power delivery more linear.

    Bullshit...

    The nice thing with a 2 Banger is you can tune the power delivery. Porting and pipe changes can move the power delivery.
    You can also effect the delivery too. One of the cheapest and easiest ways to slow it up a little is to add a flywheel weight.

    Your current motor does not have the snort off the bottom that my old 94 did. That does make it a bit tougher to get off the corner.
    Just keep it boiling more and use the clutch. A lot.

    Fatten the air screw setting for more bottom.

    Man, I gotta get one of those! That sounds like the whole reason I ride ice.

    The 250s are the most fun on the ice IMO. But 450s are still the boss out there.

    The only thing I could think of when watching that is what the salt would do to those bikes. Although I have recently come to acquire a paddle tire...

    I was a believer in the smoker being easier to tune than a 4stroke until I put a programmer on my 450R. All you do is push buttons, never a need for any tools, and smelling like gas

    I love that smell.

    Thank you for reminding me to buy more 2-stroke oil.
