Default RC Motocycles....

Anyone has one? I picked up (well the wife did for me) a Kyosho Honda NSR 500 HOR (hang on rider) R/C motorcycle. The hobby store owner hook her up with the basics for me but I want to know if I can make it faster. You know, add bearings, change the motor and batteries for a faster setup, etc, etc...

Any owners?

The Kyosho HOR is great motorcycle, maybe little rare these days. Tower had chromed frame and high grip tires among other stuff. The most popular hopup motor was Graupner 300 if I remember correctly, most hopup motors for the 1/18 cars could be made to fit. I recommend you go to RC motorcycle at yahoo and sit down to read the old posts.

Hi, I have the new Thunder Tiger Ducati 999 1/5 scale. Loads of fun !!! You'll find parts and accessories for the Kyosho getting harder to find as I beleive it is now discontinued. The current rage is 1/5 scale electric and nitro. Thunder Tiger and Nuova Faor are the 2 major companies.RC Motorcycles are probably going to gain in popularity and should work well on some of the tracks you have in Germany. Here's a couple of websites to help you.

Good Luck and Enjoy !!
