When I found this book I was hoping that it would educate me on how to actually tune a motor. It covers more of how to build a tuned motor. If I were to ever take up engine building I would highly recommend this book. If you are Joe kart racer or Bob moto racer I would put it low on the get list, as it doesn't really give much fingertip tuning tips.

A Graham Bell Gives you what you're paying for; his expertise, advise, and experience. He provides results of his own experiments, formulas, and rules of thumb. I have been very happy with this book, and I am still riding the result!

Excellent primer on understanding the workings of two-stroke engines for racing. If you are a novice/beginner then this book is for you. There are only a couple books like this ever made and that makes this one well worth the money. I learn a little more every time I read it.

Format: Hardcover
As a 125 GP rider, I hoped to gain an understanding of 2 strokes and ehat performance mods I could/should make. I also hoped to gain an understanding of the inner workings of a 2 stroke. The book has answered many questions and seeded many ideas. My only complaint is the book references old bikes mainly available in Britain. The principles apply but I'd like to see some updated examples using modern machinery.

An excellent academic book on the theory behind performance tuning for 2-stroke motorcycles. Geared specifically for GP and Kart racers, this hardcover treasure has turned out to be a great reference source for questions on the logic and concepts that pertain to tuning a 2-stroke for maximum performance.
This doesn't always mean maximum horsepower. As is stated by the author, every great 2-Stroke racing machine is a compromise of power -vs- function. This concept alone makes the book well worth the purchase price.
A "must-have" if you race a 2-stroke, especially a Yamaha TZ250 or 125. Includes tons of pictures, charts, graphs, comparisons, numbers. formulas, theory, examples, stories, and more!

This is the best book you can buy on 2 stroke tuning. I have read it 3 times to try and assimilate all the information. If you want to modify a 2 stroke engine, this is the best starting point you can get. Well written, easy to follow and very practical. I have many other tuning books, but this is by far the best. Has up to date information and well worth the money.

If you are planning on doing any modification to your 2 stroke, this book is a must have. A comprehensive and insightful look into the sometimes confusing world of tuning 2 strokes. This book will clarify 90% of your unanswered questions. Everything covered can be applied to any 2 stroke, as each topic is taken in pricipal, not specifics for each engine necessarily. I have found that i can even apply these things to my 1967 SAAB 2 stroke. It is easy to understand and follow even to a 15 year old novice like me! I couldn't live without this book. . one of my bibles!
