We just had our Sons YZ125 2022 engine optimised at Ngage racing by way of fitting a stage 4 kit alongside having the crankcase's matched. We are more than happy with the results, a big increase in power and once we sorted the gearing the bike kept pulling like a train with usuable power throughout the rev range.
Our dyno guy was impressed with the strength of the engine. They said they'd had plenty of 250s that weren't pulling that much power.
Ngage have done our engines in the past and highly recommend their work.
Sitting thinking about this years racing, and wish I got Freddie bike done by Garry at N-Gage sooner. As soon as he got it he was competitive and turned heads and got faster and faster then we saw who our real friends were. This year he won a British Championship race, won a couple of championships this year, won the magic weekend with white rose, 3rd at Masterkids. So proud of his accomplishments.
Thanks to all the people who supported and cheered Freddie on this year and for the folk who wrote him off do it again as it just fuels him to prove you wrong……
The bikes they have been so reliable and never failed to have Freddie out the gate in the top 3 if not holeshot. CLICK HERE TO GET TO OUR RACE PARTS PAGE: SHOP (ngagemx.co.uk)
VENUE: A full 4 x 20 minute moto's at the Iron works Middlesbrough
CONDITIONS: Muddy it had rained heavily the day before the test.
RIDER: Leo Wright
DAD: Stephen Wright
BIKE: TC85 SW
Instead of us telling you how great our product is and how much power it has etc etc. We thought it would be best to let a real rider in real track conditions let you know what are kits are like.
The main reason we asked Leo and Stephen to do the test is that Leo is not just another quick rider who can mix it with the fastest in the country but one who has no filter, he says things as he feels without fear of hurting your feelings so we know we'd get straight honest feed back, and Stephen has a great knowledge of how engines work.
We fitted the kit in our workshops and set the compression ratio 4% lower than stock (less power) just to see how effective the kit really was. Before doing so we invited Stephen to take a good look at the workmanship. The jetting was left as stock again we wanted to see what effect just the kit would have on overall performance without tuning in the carb.
After the days testing we gave Stephen and Leo a Questionaire so they could review the kit and this is what they had to say:
QUESTION: What were your thoughts on the quality of workmanship?
QUESTION: Did the stage 4 kit have enough power?
ANSWER: Yes Very smooth with lots of power.
QUESTION: How did the power come in?
QUESTION: Was the bike easy to ride?
ANSWER: Yes, very
QUESTION: Did the bike over rev enough for you?
QUESTION: Did the bike hook up in the corners or did it wheel spin?
ANSWER: The bike hooked up excellent.
QUESTION: What did you like most about the kit?
ANSWER: The power was endless.
QUESTION: And finally how could we make this kit better for you?
ANSWER: Keep doing what your doing.

As with all tests its gets you a little worried but especially when you have not set the bike up with full power and left the carb stock, we all know jetting can give you another 1-1.5 hp. We then also let the rider write a review.
But I suppose it was a really life test which came out better than we expected, we thought the kit performed extremely well even though it was turned down a very fast rider thought it had enough power.

YZ125 GYTR Acerbis national rider LP said: Garry has done my GYTR and perfected what was already there! The bike is something else now, more torque and power through the range and I’m so happy, before anything out of the quote needed to be done he informed me and asked if it was okay to go ahead with it. I'm that Happy with what I’ve received and the communications, I’ve just delivered my 2019 GYTR to him for the full works, complete engine. Can’t recommend NGage enough, advises what should be done but doesn’t try take your money, and does a lot for his customers, workmanship is 120%!
TC65 rider RC said: Sent our tc65 engine for a rebuild . From start to finish we new exactly what was happening and what we needed to do. Great communication, even polished up our new piston.

RM250 Acerbis national Expert rider KN said: Ngage Racing Did an amazing job on my suspension! Well impressed when I rode the bike after having it done, So much more confidence on the track. Very good service, highly recommend NGage to any of my friends.
SX125 Acerbis National expert rider LT said: Ngage racing Suspension makes everything feel flat and really helps with cornering. The engine on my bike is very quick and Garry says it is not even close to the full potential he can tune it to. The training is by far the best I have had and it really improved my skills and technique. Excellent service with a very fast turnaround and he is always willing to help. I would highly recommend.

SXF450 Expert rider. GM said: Gaz at Ngage set up my ktm sxf450 in which I was able to win the central area experts championship. He managed to get the suspension spot on and my last lap was normally my quickest because of it :-) After that I had purchased his very own Ngage kxf450 which was by for the best set up bike I had ever owned!!! If you are looking for any kind of bike set up i Would highly recommend Garry at Ngage and because he rides himself he understands exactly what you mean when you talk to him about how you bike reacts to the track and how to counter it.
YZ125/17 AMCA expert rider. LH said: Ngage racing set up my new yz 125 for me to ride and its not been anything under excellent! The bike is absolutely mega. and I haven't even got to the engine yet. just open her up and she goes... and fast. a massive thanks to gary as I've already won races on the Ngage yz 125 beast machine. ps. get her open early in the corner and 250s look like there going backwards.

SXF250/17 British Championship rider.CC said: Ngage suspension and engines are perfect. The suspension allows you to put the bike exactly where you want to and handles the roughest of tracks with ease. The engine has the speed and smoothness tailored to my riding style to allow me to feel comfortable and confident with the bike. I love it!
KXF250/17 expert rider. HP said: The previous reviews have covered most of my thoughts haha the bike feels a lot more stable and so much smoother through the really choppy sections braking bumps etc. Gives you confidence to carry more corner speed! You will definitely be seeing me again!
SX250/16 expert rider. RG said: Absolutely spot on! Had suspension done on different bikes and has been perfect all round, track side set up and assistance all round great service!!
SX250 expert rider. DG said: Workmanship and attention to detail is second to none, couldn't fault my suspension one bit!! Workshop is probably cleaner than my kitchen!!! Highly recommend.
EXC300 Championship rider. AG said: The work produced by Gaz at Ngage really is something special. I had the engine and suspension done on a KTM 300 EXC for hare and hounds use and the difference was unbelievable. The engine work gave the bike great linear power with a real smooth delivery making it easy to get traction in those really wet winter races. The difference in the suspension could be felt straight away, it was soft and ultra smooth at the bottom to soak up the tree roots and rocks and progressively stiffened for the big hits. Would definitely recommend his services.
SX125 Acerbis national (champion 2015- 2019) rider. DP said: Top man knows what he is doing building faultless bikes and spot on suspension No1 for bikes full stop...
SX85 BYMX rider PC said: The porting work he did to the engine was a work of art, and the gearbox components and exhaust where polished to a perfect mirror-like finish to work at their optimum.
SXF250/17 Expert rider. GB said: Top quality work carried out to the highest of standards would recommend to anyone. Great service fast and reliable.
