THE SEPTEMBER 2021 ISSUE OF MXA IS ON ITS WAY? SUBSCRIBE! IT IS THE BEST DEAL IN THE SPORT!

The September 2021 issue of MXA is awesome. Not only did we build a GasGas MC 450F Factory Edition—with the sole goal of not using a boatload of Power Parts accessories, we we also built a 44-horsepower KTM 150SX. Well, actually, we had Mitch Payton build the engine for us, but we took it to the World Two-Stroke Championship and holeshot both 125 Pro motos (yes, 150s are legal in the 125 class at the World Two-Stroke Championship). Then, we tested a 2022 TM 112MX SuperMini, while revealing photos of the 2022 Kawasaki KX112 SuperMini a few pages earlier. We interviewed Jammin’ Jimmy Weinert, had Mitch Payton explain the hoops that Pro Circuit had to jump through to stay afloat during the Covid-19 pandemic and, as the ultimate kicker, we had Josh Mosiman join the U.S. Air Force so we could get our hand on a F-16 Fighting Falcon for a test ride—see the photo below of Josh and his two wingmen guarding our nation at 10,00 feet.

MXA TEAM TESTED: SCALVINI STAMPED KTM 125/150SX PIPE/SILENCER

Everyone loves Scalvini cone pipes for their exotic looks and quality materials. They are hand-cut, welded in multiple pieces of hand-rolled steel, and then hammered smooth at the joints. You see Scalvini cone pipes on many custom-built two-strokes. But, few people know that Scalvini makes stamped two-stroke pipes also. The stamped pipes don’t have the old-world charm of a cone pipe, but they have the exact same dimensions as their arts-and-crafts brothers. There are absolutely no performance differences between the two pipes, but there is a price difference. The Scalvini cone KTM 125/150SX pipe costs $70 more than a Scalvini stamped race pipe

In stock trim, the 2021 KTM 150SX has a strong low-to-mid thrust. It is responsive and has a quick feeling into the top end. It is easy to ride, but you have to shift to keep it on the bubble. There are situations where you have to wring out second gear, because it isn’t ready to pull third gear yet. In a perfect world, MXA’s faster test riders would want KTM to give the stock pipe more midrange hit, while Vet and slower riders would prefer more top end so that they could stay in one gear longer. Sadly, KTM could only give the potent KTM 125/150SX one style of power.

The pipe is mounted on rubber isolator bumpers and the silencer mounts on a special bracket with slots that allow the silencer bolts to slide back and forth for perfect alignment (see above).

When comparing the stock pipe to Scalvini’s stamped KTM 125/150SX pipe, the Scalvini gives up a little bit of the low-end thrust to gain some serious revs from mid-and-up. The first thing the MXA test riders noticed was that the Scalvini pipe allowed them to shift to third gear without fear of bogging, plus the power delivery was smoother through the midrange, making the bike more rideable. The Scalvini pipe climbed through the revs quicker, didn’t require additional shifts to stay in the powerband, and produced 2 horsepower more at peak. Our brand-new 2021 KTM 150SX, with less than 8 hours on it, ran fine on 91-octane pump gas. If it had exhibited jetting issues or a lean pop, we would have upped the stock 500 main jet to a 510 (or thrown a gallon or two of VP C12 into every 5 gallons). We had no issues with the Scalvini silencer; it fit perfectly because it comes with a bracket that mounts on the KTM subframe, which the silencer is then mounted to. Plus, the silencer brackets have a 1/2-inch of fore and aft play to get everything aligned.

We had two quibbles. (1) The silencer is riveted together. You’d have to drill out the rivets to repack it. (2) The pipe is held in place by two 1-inch-thick rubber vibration isolator mounts (see above), which we like, but they do move the pipe farther away from the frame.

DIGIT? $219.00 (stamped pipe), $289.00 (cone pipe), $209.00 (aluminum/carbon silencer), $315.00 (full carbon silencer)www.scalvinipipes.com or (760) 949-0941.

MXA RATING: In truth, we miss the cool look of the Scalvini cone pipe, but the stamped Scalvini pipe improved mid-to-top power, which both Pros and Vets liked for distinctly different reasons.

• FORGOTTEN MOTOCROSS TECH: OHLINS HYDRAULIC TWO-WHEEL-DRIVE YAMAHA 2-TRAC

The hydraulic hoses run down the front of the fork leg and then back into two fittings on the hub.

Motocross history is filled with creative ideas that were heralded as ground-breaking, some were abandoned, others stupid and a few were truly innovative. Do you remember Ohlins’ hydraulic two-wheel-drive system.

Ohlins dedicated 15 years and a large chunk of its R&D budget from 1992 to 2007 into perfecting two-wheel-drive motorcycles—both off-road, rally and street. Ohlins’ management even convinced Yamaha, who owned Ohlins at the time, to commit to manufacturing a small test run of 445 Yamaha WR450F 2-Tracs for sale in 2004.

Yamaha put the 2-Trac in production in 2004, but it didn’t sell well enough to get a return engagement.

Obviously, the much newer Christini two-wheel-drive bike is still in production, but Ohlins didn’t want to rely on shafts and chains to get power to the front wheel. Instead, Ohlins designed a hydraulic system that forced an incompressible fluid through flexible tubes from a countershaft-driven pump to a small, front hub-mounted hydraulic motor.

Front wheel roost.

The big plus of driving the front wheel with hydraulic pressure was that the system could be fit on a conventional bike without any major redesign, because only the two flexible hydraulic hoses had to be routed from the pump to the front wheel. The front hub had sensors in it that signaled when the rear wheel was spinning freely, and that is when the 2-Trac’s front-wheel drive kicked in.

Because the pump was driven from the gearbox’s countershaft sprocket, the front wheel could never turn faster than the rear, so it wouldn’t spin. But, if the rear tire started to spin, the pump would run faster, which would increase the hydraulic pressure and therefore the amount of power going to the front wheel. It is not, in the truest sense, an all-wheel-drive system.

The hydraulic lines powered the front wheel.

Ohlins used the system in Paris-Dakar-style rallies with some success and even built a Yamaha R1 prototype to test its feasibility on a street bike. Unfortunately, Yamaha lost interest in the concept when the WR450F 2-Trac was a sales failure.

• ASK THE MXPERTS: SHOULD I SIT OR STAND WHEN MEASURING RACE SAG?

In order to eliminate variations in how different test riders measure sag, MXA uses a Slacker digital sag scale and drills a pilot hole in the rear fender of each test bike to insure that every measurement is accurate.

Dear MXA,
Every time I have someone help me set the race sag on my bike, they tell me to stand up, but if I am standing up, they tell me to sit down. What’s the proper way?

It doesn’t matter. That is not to say that the measurements won’t differ, but since your plan is to ride the bike after setting the sag, you will be the final arbiter of whether the sag is too high, too low or just right. Measure the sag however you want, but once you find the perfect number, always measure the sag using the same method. The stand-up method does eliminate the variations of where you sit on the saddle. If you sit even 1 inch farther back than the last time, the sag will change. Be consistent, whichever method you choose.

MXA PHOTO OF THE WEEK: WE LOVE PHOTOS OF JON ORTNER…CRASHING

Former AMA Pro Jon Ortner takes one big bounce before tumbling down the bank to the left. His bike had the good sense to stay on the track. Photo: Rich Stuelke


This Jon Ortner photo was shot one second before the one above—but the outcome was the same.

Here’s a bonus Ortner crash for his fans in Santa Barbara. Jon is the one on the bottom. Surprise! They both blamed the other guy. Photo: Debbi Tamietti

This looks like a normal crash, but the difference is that at this point into Glen Helen’s Talladega first turn the bikes are going 70mph. Jon Ortner (10) is doing 70 without his bike. Photo: Debbi Tamietti

• GLEN HELEN NITRO RALLYCROSS TICKETS ON SALE NOW FOR NOV. 20-21 EVENT

Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Rallycross (NRC) is set to expand in a big way, announcing a full championship series comprising five races in 2021. In 2022, NRX will go even bigger with a 10-stop global championship with races in North America, Europe and the Middle East. The new championship will also feature a revolutionary electric vehicle supercar class, which will be introduced in 2022. Travis Pastrana said, “Since day one, I have truly believed that Nitro Rallycross has the potential to be the most exciting motorsports series on the planet. When we built the first NRX course in Utah we knew we had something special — from the drivers’ genuine smiles to the astonished fans as cars flew side-by-side over 100-foot jumps. Now, as we get ready for the next chapter of NRX, I’m more convinced than ever that this will bring top drivers from all disciplines to challenge themselves as their teams push the envelope in vehicle development. It’s going to be a hell of a ride and this is only the beginning.” You can purchase tickets now by Clicking Here.
