MXA WEEKEN NEWS ROUND-UP: DO WE COUNT DOWN SUPERCROSS OR COUNT UP TO THE NATIONALS?

HUSQVARNA’S 2019 MINI-MOTOCROSS NEW MODEL LINE-UP

HUSQVARNA TC50

Offering the same striking looks and ergonomic feel as Husqvarna’s full-sized motocross machines, the TC50 is perfect for the motocross stars of tomorrow. Featuring superior quality components, the TC50 has been designed from the ground up in order to be a true premium 50cc motocross bike. The TC50 is built around an advanced steel frame, which houses the most powerful engine in its category.

Featuring the latest in two-stroke technology, the engine makes use of a 3-shaft design for improved mass centralization. The exhaust is specifically designed to match the characteristics of the two-stroke powerplant. The engine is fitted with an automatic centrifugal clutch that reduces riding complexity for younger riders. Part of the official Husqvarna Motorcycles Accessories range, a special kit allows for a reduction of the power for less aggressive riders. Leading components such as the WP suspension add up to create a motorcycle that sets the benchmark in the class. The TC50 is fitted with a revolutionary WP AER 35 fork.

Besides being very light, the 35mm forks allow the rider to push the limits with confidence. With 205 mm of wheel travel, the air unit in the left fork leg can be adjusted with an air pump. Offering 185mm of suspension travel, the WP monoshock is matched perfectly to the front forks.

Featuring premium components as standard, the TC65 offers exactly the same quality as that found on Husqvarna’s larger motocross machines.
Highly competitive in the 65 cc class, the TC65 engine is built using the lightest and most durable materials. Featuring the latest in two-stroke technology, it has a pressure-controlled exhaust valve which helps obtain top level performance. Additionally, the engine features a manual 6-speed transmission and hydraulic clutch allowing the rider to have full control of the power delivery.

Sophisticated components such as the cast aluminum swingarm are blended together with advanced solutions like the intelligent cooling circuit to create a motorcycle that is modern and highly competitive. In the suspension department, the TC 65 features a revolutionary WP AER 35 fork, with 215mm of wheel travel and an adjustable air unit in its left fork. Matched precisely to the forks, the WP monoshock rear suspension offers 270 mm of travel and is fully adjustable.

Combining the latest in chassis technology with state of the art WP suspension, it offers young mini riders the chance to push their limits with confidence.
Setting the benchmark in the class, the TC85 two-stroke engine combines top level performance with optimum reliability. The cylinder is designed around an innovative power valve system that significantly enhances power, torque and controllability with a simple and effective adjustment system. The 6-speed gearbox and Formula hydraulic diaphragm spring clutch allow for the power to be correctly delivered across the RPM range.

Mirroring technology found in Husqvarna’s full-size motocross models, the TC85 features the latest WP suspension componentry. Up front, the WP AER 43 has a split fork design with air in its left leg and oil in the right leg. Offering advanced damping characteristics, the forks are easily adjustable via the easy access clickers and with the use of the supplied pump. In the rear, the TC85 is fitted with a special version of the WP XPlor PDS shock absorber. Designed to work perfectly with the forks, the rear shock is fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound.

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: THE SEVEN-ROUND TWO-STROKE SERIES THAT IS REALLY ONLY ONE ROUND

Glen Helen will host a 250/Open Invitational two-stroke race at the May 26 Glen Helen National. They are not part of the 125 All-Star series. This is the first turn at the 2018 World Two-stroke Championship two weeks ago. Zach Bell won.

Press release: The beloved sound of two-stroke motorcycles will return to American motocross this summer as MX Sports Pro Racing has announced the introduction of the 125 All Star Series. This new support program will be featured at a total of seven rounds of the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, beginning with the season opening Hangtown Motocross Classic on May 19th.

The 125 All Star Series will consist of six qualifying rounds and a climactic finale at the season-ending Ironman National on August 25th. In addition to bookending the National schedule, this one-of-a-kind 2-stroke showcase will also visit Thunder Valley (June 2), High Point (June 16), The Wick 338 (June 30), Washougal (July 28), and Budds Creek (August 18). Each All Star event will feature a one-moto format, and will be contested during opening ceremonies at the designated Nationals.

“The resurgence of market interest for two-stroke-based motorcycles, and our recent experience with 2-stroke support classes at national events presents us with opportunities for developing a more formal program for these products for 2018 and beyond,” explained Roy Janson, Director of Competition for MX Sports Pro Racing.
“The 125cc two-stroke machine in particular is experiencing an increased level of interest and popularity, due in part to the role it plays in our sport for amateur riders. These motorcycles provide an appropriate transitional machine with size and performance characteristics consistent with the size and skill sets of many young athletes. Additionally, there is continued interest in these machines with our fans based on the important historical role these 2-strokes played in the development, growth and evolution of our sport.”

The 125 All Star Series is open to current, production-based, 125cc, two-stroke machines (as well as non-current production models from the final three years of production for manufacturers who no longer produce 125cc models). To be eligible to compete riders must be a minimum 16 years of age, with an AMA skill classification of “B” or higher. Current and former AMA Pro Motocross-licensed riders are eligible to compete, so long as they are not participating in the professional classes at that event.

2018 125 TWO-STROKE ALL-STAR SERIES
May 19……………………….Hangtown, CA
June 2………………………..Thunder Valley, CO
June 16………………………Mt Morris, PA
June 30………………………Southwick, MA
July 28……………………….Washougal, WA.
Aug. 18………………………Budds Creek, MD
Aug. 25………………………Crawfordsville, IN (Finals)

NOTE: In addition, Glen Helen, who has hosted the most two-stroke events of any AMA Nationals will not be part of the 125 All-Star series, but instead will host an invitational two-stroke race open to all size two-strokes — but obviously catering to 250cc and 500cc smokers (because of the big hills a 125 would be at a disadvantage). If MXSports’ really wants to help two-strokes, they should change the rule that keeps 250 two-strokes out of racing the AMA 250 National class against 250cc four-stroke (as is legal in Australia,  Canada, Holland and other countries).

ZACH OSBORNE RE-UPS WITH ROCKSTAR HUSQVARNA THROUGH 2020

Zach will be riding Husky’s until he eligible for the Vet World Championship.

Press release: Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing is pleased to announce the extension of Zach Osborne’s contract through 2020. He has been successful and a true brand pioneer with his first, as well as Husqvarna Motorcycles’ first, 250 East Supercross Championship in the 2017 AMA Supercross season and again with the 2017 AMA 250 National Motocross Championship. He will be contending both series through 2020 and be aboard the FC 450 in the near future.

Zach Osborne: “I’m very excited for the opportunity to continue this relationship with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team. We’ve had good successes so far and I hope to continue that through 2020, in the 450 class, and beyond. It’s a great feeling to have the best equipment and team around you in a long term commitment, and I am lucky to have that!”

MXA MOTO-CHALLENGE TRIVIA QUIZ: THE RESULTS FROM 45 YEARS AGO

Before the AMA or the FIM recognized 125 two-strokes as a Championship class, the first-ever 125 National Championship was held at Arroyo Cycle Park. These are the results from that day, which saw Penton, Monark, Harley-Davidson, Hodaka and DKW take 9 of the top 10 spots. Jim Hoover brought the first “Big Four” brand home in 8th place. The question? What now sits on the old Arroyo Cycle Park site? Answer at the bottom of the page

USED IT, ABUSED IT, TESTED IT: JGR MX ADJUSTABLE YZ-F/RM-Z SHOCK LINKS

JGRMX-LINK-1The JGRMX YZ250/450F adjustable shock linkage system not only lowers the rear of 2010–2018 YZ450Fs and 2013–2018 YZ250Fs but also the 2017-18 RM-Z250 and 2017-18 RM-Z450. As with all links, it stiffens the initial part of the shock’s stroke while lowering the seat height. What makes the JGRMX shock linkage unique is that it allows the rider to go as low he wants to go..

0Q7A9053

JGR’s adjustable pull rods enable a rider to increase the length of the link in 1mm increments on the YZ-F and 0.5mm on the RM-Z. On the 2017-18 YZ-F, this means from 142mm to 146mm (the JGR riders ran their links at 144mm when they raced YZ450Fs) and on the 2017 RM-Z from 132mm to 134.5mm (Weston Peick ran his 2017 RM-Z450 link at 133.5mm). The 2018 models are comparable. As the length of the linkage arm is increased, the rear of the bike gets lower because the bell crank and the shock attached to it are rotated down. By moving the bell crank’s eccentric cam, the starting point of the rising rate is moved into a stiffer point of the curve. This makes the bike slightly stiffer during its initial movement to help lessen wallowing. As for lowering the rear of our YZ450F, 1mm shorter will lower it 8mm, 2mm will lower it 14mm, 3mm will lower it 19mm and 4mm will lower it 23mm.

The MXA wrecking crew loves longer links on the YZ-F and especially on the 2018 Suzuki RM-Z450, not only because they lower the rear of the seat, but because they can be used to change the chassis head angle and overall height (when used in a comprehensive plan with fork-leg height). Most MXA test riders ran it at 2mm longer, but short riders went with 3mm. MXA considers a longer link to be a handling modification instead of a suspension modification. By lowering the rear, you lessen its irritating stinkbug stance, and as the bike gets lower, its cornering ability improves noticeably.
