OLD SCHOOL SCRAMBLES CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS STANDINGS

Masters of Mini class leader Andy Ellis.

With only two rounds left in the five-race series Old School Scrambles series there are close points battles in several classes. Although the Old School Scrambles Racing Group is primarily a vintage motorcycle group, one of the largest classes is the “Masters of Mini 100cc-140cc” group. Started by Reign VMX owner Mark Carlton it has grown to be the dominant class at the TT Scrambles events. Andy Ellis holds a 16-point lead with two races left in the series.

Mike Burns and Jody Sanders.

Not as large as the Masters of Mini class, but just as fierce in the Sidecar TT class. With seven team competing for the crown, the sidecar team of Mike Burns Jr. and Jody Sanders have a huge lead in the Sidecar TT Scrambles points.

The Bonfire Quad Experts.

The other series within a series is the “Bonfire Quad Championship Series. It features three separate classes and with only 5 points between Experts Ryan Maddux and Bryan Sousa, it’s going to be a close one going into round four.

MXA PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: SAMCO SPORT KTM/HUSKY SILICONE WATER HOSE T-PIECE

The Samco T-piece (left) and the stock KTM/Husky T-piece (right).

It fits most KTM and Husqvarna bikes from 125 through to 500. The hose improves water flow when compared the OEM T-Piece, which can restrict critical water flow to the radiators, resulting in overheating issues.

T-PIECE REMOVAL TOOL: Made from solid steel with a bright zinc plating, this tool is designed to easily remove your Frame T-Piece, which can be highly difficult with the incorrect tools. A recommended essential when purchasing the Samco Sport Silicone Frame T-Piece.

SUPERMINI RAW TWO-STROKE WITH MATT LEBLANC AT PALA

MXA TEAM TESTED: USED IT, ABUSED IT, MISUSED IT & LOVED IT

DINGO SNAP-ON TRANSPONDER MOUNT
Most transponders are held in place by flimsy plastic brackets, CNC-machined mounts that attach to the triple-clamp bolts or LightSpeed carbon fiber snap-on mounts. Each has its own problems. The Dingo transponder mount eliminates the need to use zip-ties or duct tape to keep your transponder from slipping, spinning or falling off. Plus, since it just clips on to your fork stanchion, you can move it from bike to bike or put it on either fork leg.
VERDICT: The Dingo snap-on transponder mount is a breeze to install. Just spread the tube apart and slip it over your fork stanchion. The transponder sits on a hook and slips over a post. A Velcro strap wraps around the fork stanchion and transponder to make sure that nothing moves.
DIGITS: $44.95—www.dingoracingproducts.com.

SCALVINI YAMAHA YZ125 CONE PIPE & SILENCER
If the Scalvini YZ125 pipe didn’t add a single horsepower, people would still buy it. It looks that good. Scalvini is the king of cone pipes and the choice of two-stroke builders looking for something very special.
VERDICT: The Scalvini YZ125’s performance was altered by whether we ran the Scalvini silencer or the stock silencer. With the stock silencer, the YZ125’s power was more focused on the midrange with a touch of over-rev. With the Scalvini silencer, the system pulled further into the rpm range and gained 2 horsepower at peak. We would rate the Scalvini pipe and silencer as an Intermediate-and-up winner, but Novices and Vets will have trouble getting the most out of it.
DIGITS: $279.00 (cone pipe), $175.00 (aluminum/carbon silencer), $247.00 (full carbon silencer)—www.scalvinipipes.com or (760) 949-0941.

STI TECH-2 PRO TIRES
The STI Tech-2 Pro tire is the second generation of STI’s original Tech 2 MXC, which was introduced five years ago as an all-around, low-cost, offroad tire combination. The all-new Tech-2 Pro is more focused on the racing market as opposed to the trail rider category.
VERDICT: The STI Tech-2 Pro is vastly improved over the previous Tech-2 MXC rear tire. Billed as an intermediate-terrain tire, the Tech-2 Pro had awesome straight-line traction in everything from hard to soft dirt. Knob flex was greatly reduced, thanks to a firm four-ply carcass. To reduce the bounce effect, we lowered the tire pressure to 10 psi. We got a better feel the lower we went.
DIGITS: $87.51 (rear), $69.95 (front)—www.stitireandwheel.com.
