Pit Bike Junkie Magazine – New Piston And Rings – Break-In Procedure

We decided to put in a high-compression piston, and rings. The Piranha 190 is already a 25+ hp bike, and now with this new piston and fresh cylinder hone, we'll be pushing enough power to rip the tire right out of the rimlock! Also, I very briefly describe the break-in procedure that we used to make sure the rings seat correctly.

Mudville USA – Pit Bike Party Weekend – Exciting Bar-To-Bar Motocross Racing On Minibikes

Mudville USA was host to the big Pit Bike Party Weekend event & season opener of the Sho-Me State Pitbike Series in Bourbon, MO. Piranha rider Jake "The Assassin" Payne (2013 Arenacross Series Champion) had an epic Pro-class battle with Josh "The Snake" Garner (2012 Sho-Me Series State Champion). Garner was outpowered by the Daytona mounted Piranha rider, and Payne quickly disposed of his competition finishing nearly half a lap ahead of the field. In the always exciting & competitive 12" Am class, Hank "Hot-Shoe" Cahill (fresh off of his impressive results at the Mini-Moto World Finals in Vegas) took the holeshot in both motos, and never looked back. Piranha team riders James Smoot & Cody Dempsey battled it out every lap, trading places until Dempsey edged out Smoot to finish 2nd & 3rd respectively. In the popular Vet class, Pit Bike Junkie publisher "Fantasy" Jim (the world's oldest pit bike racer) took the holeshot in both motos, but the failure of his rear break after the 1st lap in moto 2 prevented the "old guy" from finishing on the podium, ending up 4th overall.
