What Racers are saying about CMR Products and Services
E-mail from Doug Forbes to Denis Curtis
I wanted to thank you again for all the work you did to modify and
strengthen my frame. You really did solve all the major problems
associated with trying to stuff a Yamaha XT550 motor in a 1981 Yamaha
TZ fame. By tipping the motor up you significantly improved the
countershaft to swingarm alignment and by adding mounts for all
attachment points, the massive vibration and risk of another cracked
crankcase are a thing of the past. My bike now handles extremely well
and if I can ride it to its potential it will be very competitive in
its class. I was able to finish 4th in class out of 32 riders this year
and I am still dialing in my suspension and carbs. Thanks for helping
make this such a fun and successful year.
Doug Forbes #83.

On the weekend of Oct 19-21, 2007 Steve Shaw came to Barber with his
TZ350 to take on our TZ750s in the Open GP 2-Stroke class. On the
twisty Barber track he certainly had something of an advantage in the
turns (he came in 2nd in Saturday's race for a 1-2 Canadian finish with
Brian Henderson taking 1st place on Rusty Bigley's Spondon TZ750). What
we didn't realize at first was the secret weapon he brought along from
the Great White North.
Last winter Steve rebuilt his TZ350 around one of Denis Curtis' CMR
Harris replica TZ250/350 chassis. This frame is very well made with
beautiful welds and nice attention to detail. The AL tank finishes it
off nicely. My understanding is that the swap-over was very straight
forward with everything bolting into place nicely.
Denis has a long history of making frames from as far back as Steve
Baker and Yamaha Canada. I believe he is currently working on a Suzuki
TR750 chassis, after which he will begin a run of 10 replica original
Yamaha TZ750 frames/swingarms.
From Rob Verrier, 2007 SRA â€“ Sidecar Racing
Association, Eastern Division (Canada and Eastern USA) Overall
Champion, using his 600cc Formula 2 racing sidecar outfit:
I contacted Denis before the season began to repair some damage on my
Isle of Man aluminum gas tank/left hand kneeler tray. You can see it
easily in the picture.
I brought this outfit with me to Canada having competed in the Isle of
Man event with it over a two year period. This aluminum tank was
carefully repaired and reinforced by CMR Racing Products Inc. of
Belleville to my complete satisfaction. I won the championship at the
end of the season and inspected the bike. The tank was still as good as
the day it was repaired by CMR.
Many thanks Denis,

From Steve Shaw, VRRA Racer from Canada and a true two stoke nut.
Steve says that he is a big lad, and has had a couple of TZ 350s crack
their frames in the recent past. I liked the overall quality of the CMR
frame and swing-arm, and especially the completeness of the kit.
Everything fitted very well and I was able to transfer parts from my
broken stock bike directly onto the CMR Harris Lowline Yamaha TZ 350
Replica. The gas tank is a work of art. The new replica frame kit
inspired my confidence level in my racing and it really shows. The
highlight was doing so well down at Barber in October against the
Thanks Denis for a great product,
Steve Shaw VRRA #9.
