MXA RETRO TEST:我们骑着瑞恩·哈夫曼(Ryan Huffman)1998年的原动力铃木RM125

We get misty-eyed sometimes thinking about past bikes we loved, as well as ones that should remain forgotten.有时,我们会迷茫地思考着自己喜欢的过去的自行车,以及那些应该被遗忘的自行车。 We take you on a trip down memory lane with bike tests that got filed away and disregarded in the MXA archives.我们带您踏上记忆之旅,其中包括自行车测试,该测试已归档并且无视MXA档案。 We reminisce on a piece of moto history that has been resurrected.我们回想起一段已经复活的摩托车历史。 Here is our test of Ryan Huffman's 1998 Suzuki RM125 two-stroke.这是我们对Ryan Huffman XNUMX年的Suzuki RMXNUMX两冲程测试。 

You've probably heard of Ryan Huffman a couple of times before—although you may not remember why.您可能之前几次听说过Ryan Huffman,尽管您可能不记得为什么。 Let us refresh your memory.让我们刷新您的记忆。 (1) 他是父母拥有Washougal的孩子。 (2) 每年,瑞安(Ryan)都会进行几次出色的游乐设施,其中一个总是在Washougal。 (3) Ryan was one of the most successful privateers in the 2007 250 Supercross class (on a KX250).瑞安(Ryan)是250 XNUMX Supercross类(在KXXNUMX上)最成功的私有人员之一。 Those XNUMX rides brought him to the attention of Roger DeCoster.那XNUMX次骑行使他引起了Roger DeCoster的注意。

Thanks to Roger, Ryan Huffman is now known as the rider who holeshots almost every 125 West Supercross race.多亏了罗杰(Roger),莱恩·霍夫曼(Ryan Huffman)现在被称为骑手,几乎每75场西超级越野赛比赛都给他打洞。 Ryan has holeshot more than 125 percent of the 98 West Coast main events in 'XNUMX.瑞安(Ryan)在XNUMX年的XNUMX个西海岸主要赛事中,击中了超过XNUMX%的洞。 Is it the bike?是自行车吗? Is it Ryan?是瑞安吗The的 MXA wrecking crew wanted to find out.失事人员想找出。 So, we called Roger DeCoster and asked, “Can we ride Ryan Huffman's Primal Impulse Suzuki RM125?”因此,我们打电话给Roger DeCoster,问:“我们能骑Ryan Huffman的Primal Impulse Suzuki RMXNUMX吗?” Roger said yes.罗杰说是的。

Ryan的控制方式如何?

Normal.正常。 Are you surprised?你惊喜吗? We were.我们曾经。 Of all the factory bikes the在所有工厂自行车中 MXA test crew has ridden, only Jeremy McGrath's came anywhere close to feeling normal.测试人员骑了马,只有杰里米·麦格拉思(Jeremy McGrath)来的地方接近正常。 Huffman's handlebar and lever position are perfect.霍夫曼的车把和操纵杆位置非常完美。 In a world where many factory riders run their bars at a severe upward sweep, Ryan's choice of the rather flat Doug Henry-signature Pro Taper bar is as vanilla as you can get.在世界上许多工厂车手严重抬起杠铃的世界中,瑞安(Ryan)选择相当平坦的道格·亨利(Doug Henry)标志性的Pro Taper杠铃的选择是尽可能的香草。 As for the bar clamps, Ryan runs works triple clamps that are 5mm forward from stock.至于条形夹,Ryan run可以使用距库存XNUMXmm的三重夹。 Why?为什么? Because moving the bars forward improves turning on tight Supercross tracks.因为向前移动横条可以改善在紧密的Supercross轨道上打开的能力。 This advantage comes with a price, though—stability.不过,这种优势需要付出一定的代价,那就是稳定性。 But, we agree with Ryan that stability isn't as critical as turning sharper in Supercross—the sharper the better.但是,我们同意赖安(Ryan)的观点,稳定性并不像在Supercross中变得更加锐利-越锐利越好。

霍夫曼的微调Keihin碳水化合物。

Ryan shaves the ribs off his grips.瑞安剃掉了肋骨。 Not just off the tops, but completely off the grips.不仅摆脱困境,而且完全摆脱困境。

As for his clutch lever, Ryan runs a Works Connection perch and lever, along with the EZ-Adjust lever rather than a works part from Japan.至于离合器拉杆,Ryan使用的是Works Connection高位和拉杆以及EZ-Adjust拉杆,而不是日本的零件。 As for clutch pull, it is hard to believe, but Ryan's was easier than the already nonexistent pull of the stocker.至于离合器的拉力,令人难以置信,但是Ryan的拉力要比已经不存在的储料器拉力容易。 What's even harder to believe is that nothing's changed from the stocker.更难以置信的是,库存机没有任何变化。 Ryan's mechanic Todd Brown just makes sure the cable and lever are well-lubed before every ride.瑞安(Ryan)的技师托德·布朗(Todd Brown)只是确保每次骑行之前电缆和杠杆都润滑良好。

Factory Connection用霍夫曼的昭和47毫米前叉拨出电话。

Ryan's front brake is bone stock—no special master cylinder, no steel braided line, just one powerful front brake.瑞安(Ryan)的前制动器是骨料-没有特殊的主缸,没有钢编织线,只有一个强大的前制动器。 How is the brake stronger than stock?刹车比股票强吗? The stock 240mm rotor is ditched for a 260mm floating rotor.备用的XNUMXmm转子脱离了XNUMXmm浮动转子。

Throttle pull is just what we'd expect—light.油门拉力正是我们所期望的-轻巧。 The stock plastic throttle barrel is replaced with an aluminum unit.备用塑料节气门桶由铝制单元代替。

瑞恩·霍夫曼的引擎如何?

Deceptive.骗人的After watching Ryan holeshot just about every Supercross this year, we expected Ryan's engine to be a Saturn V rocket.看完今年几乎每个Supercross的Ryan爆胎后,我们都希望Ryan的引擎是土星V火箭。 It's not, but we aren't complaining.不是,但是我们没有抱怨。 Huffman's RM125 engine won't get you to the moon and back, but it will get him to the first turn in front of 21 other screaming 125 pilots.霍夫曼(Huffman)的RMXNUMX引擎不会让您登月和回去,但是它将使他在其他XNUMX位尖叫着的XNUMX名飞行员面前进入第一弯。 How does it do it?它是如何做到的?

The power on Huffman's RM is straight forward.霍夫曼RM的力量直截了当。 It has no bottom, tons of midrange and enough top to get you to the next gear.它没有底线,无数的中频和足够的顶角让您进入下一档。 Is it easy to ride?骑起来容易吗? Not exactly.不完全是。 The Suzuki factory replaces the standard first gear with a taller cog to help the bike get out of tight turns (because of the lack of bottom-end power).铃木工厂用更高的齿轮代替了标准的一档齿轮,以帮助自行车摆脱急转弯(由于缺乏底端动力)。 For Intermediate and Pro riders, the lack of bottom end isn't a problem, because they never run there.对于中级和专业车手来说,缺乏底端并不是问题,因为他们从来没有在那儿跑过。 When was the last time you saw a 125 Pro lugging his bike through a turn?您是什么时候最后一次看到125 Pro在转弯处拖着他的自行车? A XNUMX Novice, however, would have trouble keeping Huffman's bike on the pipe.但是,如果是XNUMX新手,就很难将霍夫曼的自行车固定在管道上。

Huffman的RM125的中档是残酷的。 It comes on strong (not explosively) and carries on up into the top end.它强度高(不爆炸),并一直延续到顶端。 Need to clear a 50-foot double with only a 15-foot run at it?是否需要清除仅跑60英尺的XNUMX英尺双杆? No problem.没问题。 Just jump on the throttle hard and be prepared to jump XNUMX feet past the guy you're racing against.只需猛踩油门,并准备好向与之对抗的那个人跳XNUMX英尺。

Primal团队负责工厂的气缸,缸盖,管道,加长125mm的杆,点火器和化油器。 125可以输出2马力的健康动力。

备用的240mm转子放弃了更大的260mm转子。

如何暂停?

Plush.长毛绒。 Yes, it's stiff enough for Supercross, but unlike many Supercross setups, Ryan's suspension does want to go up and down.是的,它对于Supercross来说足够坚固,但是与许多Supercross设置不同,Ryan的悬架确实希望上下移动。 

How many teams can Factory Connection help?工厂连接可以帮助多少个团队? Besides LaRocco, FMF/Honda and Primal Impulse, Factory Connection has a monopoly on the professional Showa market.除了LaRocco,FMF / Honda和Primal Impulse,Factory Connection在专业昭和市场上也有垄断地位。 That may sound bad, but it's not.听起来可能很糟糕,但事实并非如此。 Factory Connection (in conjunction with the Showa works internal kit) makes the 47mm Showa upside forks some of nicest forks we've ever tested.工厂连接(与Showa Works内部套件一起使用)使XNUMXmm的Showa上叉成为我们测试过的最漂亮的叉。

With the suspension settings exactly where Ryan left them after the San Diego Supercross, his bike was not only ridable but fun.由于悬架设置恰好是Ryan在圣地亚哥超级越野赛之后离开的位置,他的自行车不仅可以骑乘,而且很有趣。 True, the front forks were a little stiff for the average rider, but they were still capable of absorbing little bumps.没错,前叉对普通车手来说有点僵硬,但是它们仍然能够吸收一点颠簸。

On the rear, Ryan runs a stock shock (although the valving is modified by Factory Connection).在后部,Ryan进行了一次减震(尽管阀门已通过Factory Connection进行了修改)。 The standard spring rate is dumped in favor of a 4.9 kg/mm spring.标准弹簧刚度被抛弃,取而代之的是155 kg / mm弹簧。 Ryan's rear suspension was actually a little soft for our test riders.瑞安的后悬挂实际上对我们的测试车手来说有点柔软。 Ryan tips the scales at XNUMX pounds, while the average瑞安建议秤重为XNUMX磅,而平均 MXA test rider is closer to 170 pounds.测试骑手更接近125磅。 Even with the weight differential, the RMXNUMX never bottomed thanks to progressive damping and the rising-rate linkage (the bike did have a tendency to ride down in the travel, which we could have fixed with more shock preload).即使有重量差,RMXNUMX也不会因渐进式阻尼和上升速率连杆机构而达到最低谷(这辆自行车的确确实有在行驶过程中掉下来的趋势,而我们可以通过增加更多的冲击预紧力来固定它)。

请注意,脚踏螺栓已系好线。

喜欢骑哈夫曼的自行车的感觉是什么E

A treat.请客Ryan Huffman gets good starts because:瑞安·霍夫曼(Ryan Huffman)取得了良好的开端,因为: (1) 他的反应时间非常快。 (2) His Primal Impulse Suzuki has the perfect holeshot powerband (strong, but well-metered mid and plenty of top).他的Primal Impulse Suzuki具有完美的空洞爆发力带(强壮,但测得中等的声音和充足的顶部)。 With strong midrange, smooth shifting, easy clutch pull and light throttle action, you'd have to flub the gate to fail to get a good start.凭借强劲的中档,平稳的换挡,轻松的离合器拉力和轻度的油门操作,您将不得不在闸门上打滑,以免获得良好的开端。 

It's a sweet bike to ride.这是一辆好骑的自行车。 Test riders could hit the throttle hard, feather the clutch on a whim, bang the bike through its gears with a flurry and never have to shut off.测试车手可能会猛烈踩油门,一时兴起地踩着离合器,用急促的声音将自行车撞到齿轮上,而不必停车。 

What would it take to make Ryan Huffman's bike into the perfect weekend warrior (as opposed to Pro weapon)?要使Ryan Huffman的自行车成为理想的周末勇士(相对于Pro武器),需要做些什么? That's simple.很简单Take clicks out of the forks, put some into the shock and fill up the gas tank.从拨叉中取出咔嗒声,将一些咔嗒声放入电击器中,然后加满油箱。
