    And how big do i sit on a bike, its all about ind resistance too, weight doesnt have too much of an effect.

    Even the RS125 lacks due to the windresistance on me sholders.

    hands down though he could out corner me with that alloy frame.

    On my personal RS75 race bike with TP Due Plus cylinder I am getting 15.5bhp but, that is with ignition changes, race fuel, 28mm carb, closed cell crank, Carbon Tech high rpm reeds and premix at 28:1.
    Is that the 28mm MK MRD carb kit? I'm probably getting one of these this vinter. What carb is it? DO, Mikuni, Keihin?

    I blocked the stock oil pump at full delivery, it's very close to 3% and the engine has run about 2000km on an old stock crank, which had already done 10000km, then the big end started to increase its tolerance to a level i found unsafe, so i installed my MK PR crank which has driven 3000 (very hard) km, without any problems at all.
    I either use IP GPX Pro-2 or Shell Ultra 2-T for lubrication.

    RPR, I use a 28mm Kehin PWK carb, it is one of the best race race type carbs I have ever used. It is sitting in an Athena manifold ported to match the outlet of the PWK. This same manifold is used by MRD and KRD I beleive...it is really for a 24mm carb but a little time with the porting mandrel works wonders.

    I also have now a 26mm Malossi/Dell'Orto kit I am going to try when I find the time to test it.

    I just do not like oil injection....seems so much better to premix 2-strokes like the almighty intended.

    btw, would certain pipes work better in combination with the stock airbox as opposed to the pod style filter?

    The airbox will probably work a little better in all of these situations...this bike was just not equipped as such. We may do another test one day with a closer to stock bike to see the differences but not soon. I have like 6 RS50's being prepped for next season and do not have time right now for a lot of R&D...but more is coming.
