Rob, I read your post and I can see your stand point. In my experience growing up racing and dealing with many different shops/dealers, times have certainly changed. Now a days many seem to have less in stock, longer ordering times, less knowledgeable ... more »

Added reply in a thread Best VP fuel for stock 4 stroke 3/10/2017 11:23 AM

I have been using VP C9 for a couple years in my stock 450's with good results. It is 96 octane, unleaded, non-oxygenated. It is a great pump fuel replacement for a stock engine for someone who wants a clean, consistent fuel with a bit more detonation ... more »

I put the Hinson bracket on a 2015 CRF250 and it made the clutch pull easier and a lot more of a positive feel. Not sure on 450 though.

Buckit can I ask what the pit bike business is like now a days? Are they still popular overseas? I for one am bummed they haven't remained popular here... I think I have more fun on a KLX110 than on my big bike.

And he will still need to split the cases and have the cases machined for piston clearance... you may want to include that info!

Added reply in a thread 03 KX125 Rebuild.... Athena Cylinder & Head Questions..... 4/27/2016 6:18 AM

KX125 needs cases clearanced on the front side for the 58mm piston. The athena 144 kit works pretty good although I will say I think the quality is not up to par with oem. All athena cylinder kits I have installed could benefit from additional port work. ... more »

Not enough material between o-ring groove and bore, you need to have grooves welded and cylinder decked then use a metal head gasket.

Added reply in a thread 2013 CRF 450 motor problem HELP! 4/21/2016 9:34 AM

When it becomes seized, remove the crank bolt access plug and try turning the engine over by hand. That will be a good indicator as to whether it is an issue in the engine rotating assembly, or possibly a kickstarter/other issue. Regardless what the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Wiseco Crankshaft Kits 4/7/2016 10:36 AM

Have your crank rebuilt with an oem or Pro X connecting rod. Wiseco cranks are absolute garbage. Hot rods are a bit better, but on the RM250 they use plastic crank stuffers that i've seen distorted enough to rub on the cases.

DASA Racing was doing the cylinder heads for TwoTwo Motorsports, and in the past for Yamaha of troy and other teams...so probably a good option there. There a lot of good grinders out there, you probably won't be disappointed by any of the big names. ... more »
