250R is ready for port and polish but .....

What's up everyone

I got my top end off my bike just a few days ago and I want to send out the cylinder to get port and polish, now i know that theres a few types of port and polish, i just want to get a mid port and polish that will still work good with the original carb.

Do you think its even worth it ????

And will this efect the reliability in my bike ???

Thanks for your time !

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

Re: 250R is ready for port and polish but .....

A good port and polish job is a good modification. You have to step back and figure out what matters most to you. The riding that you do. If you do lots of trail riding and some racing, I would recommend spending the money on suspension first. Once you get the suspension mods done the motor work will only enhance the suspension. Thats my 2 cents..... [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

I agree with vtr, your suspension will open up the engine for you.

Depending on where you are in Canada, there are many realy good 2-stroke guys around. If near Alberta my first choice bar none would be Split Second. In the east you've got Sever and a few other guys
