Re: 250R is ready for port and polish but .....
My '88R has the CT National porting done on it, along with being bored .100 over so it's now a 265. I bought it back in '99 with the mods done, and haven't had any reliability problems at all and it runs great. The only problem I've ever had was when I let the chain get too loose. It came off just as I was starting to make power, and the loose chain wrapped up against the chain saver and stopped the transmission, which in turn grenaded 1st gear on both shafts. Now that it's got a few years riding on it, I should probably at least hone the cylinder and get some new rings in it (only reading 125lbs compression now, but should be 180lbs+) but it has been so reliable and runs so good, I'm almost afraid to mess with it right now. The difference between stock and ported is definetly worth the money in my opinion, as long as you have it done by a reliable company that knows what they are doing. lol
