    Local GP 2-stroke wizards?

    I have something in the works on a NF4 RS125 and would love to pick someone’s brain on any prudent information/knowledge on them?

    There are a few folks here who know them pretty well. I owned one for a while, but would not count myself as knowledgable. Mix the gas first, don't expect it to idle on its own, gear it low to start with, have someone check out the date code for whatever tires are on it...

    You on the Facey Spacey, right? (Feel free to hit me up)

    Jeff Vader is one of the MANY people that immediately come to mind that I would recommend sending you to. If he can't help, he would know exactly who you should talk to.

    Best part about those guys is they're all SUPER welcoming & helpful.

    Is the "Jeff Vader" name a very sneaky Eddie Izzard reference?

    Given it's his actual name and he's older than Eddie Izzard, I think it's safe to assume it probably isn't

    Mine is barely in street trim. It's a handful. Took forever to get it dialed in.
