NS 250

An NSR400 look-alike, this uncommon Honda is a v-twin liquid cooled two stroke street bike from the Japanese market. This bike has been converted for vintage racing, and was successfully campaigned in the VRRA's P4F3 class from 2005 to 2009 without a single DNF!

Bike runs very reliably, with many failure-prone parts removed from the system (oil injector, fuel pump, all unnecessary street equipment) - it runs on 2-stroke gas-oil premix.

This Honda has a very easy kick-start, with a total-loss battery to run the tachometer, it's an easy vintage bike to keep going throughout a weekend of racing, and is fully safetywired and ready to go, with an eligibility number registered with the VRRA.

39 mm forks, now updated with progressive suspension springs, work quite well, although I seem to have a slight leak still, despite replacing all the seals last winter. The square tube frame is amazingly solid, bracing around the steering head, and across the frame above the motor, all contribute to a bike virtually free of flex or wriggle of any kind.
