    This was considered The Bible by many a stroker tuner. I have not read it through but will do so as soon as I buy a stroker.
    Consider very carefully what metal is removed because in many cases it can not be put back on.

    It would be a good idea to save this to your own comp as it may not stay on line.
    The book is long out of print but eBay did have a used copy at $92. :grin:
    Gordon hated math and tries to keep it simple. :cool:

    Hehe look at the pdf-version of the 2stroke tuners handbook, at the pdf page six (not scanned book six) there is some sidenotes... in Swedish :grin:
    And the speeds are converted from feet/min to metres/sec too :cool:

    At one time Husqvarna was not Italian owned and offered some on the better dirt bikes of the '70s & '80s.
    The only issue my friends had with theirs was leaking front fork seals.

    This handbook is a treasure. :cool:

    I am the proud owner of a 1977 Husqvarna WR250 trail bike. Starts on the 2nd kick and goes much faster than something that old should be able to.
