I have a bad right hip and I think I might go back to a 2-stroke soon for easy of starting. I have been on hondas for quite a while now. I hear the 04 Cr250 is a sweet bike except for the motor lacking low end. Would the 265 bigbore help cure that and maybe give a nice smooth ride? Or would a larger bore be better?

All it needs is some porting to shift the power down the rpm band. The 265 might be a bit hard hitting in the mid-range for you. I set these bikes up for tight woods riding all the time.

Thanks, Eric

See if you can get out and ride one to see for yourself. If you get one spend the time to properly jet it, this and possibly a 50 tooth rear sprocket may be all you need. If not Eric is the man and you can't go wrong by sending him your parts.

you might want to look into an fmf gnarly pipe, supposed to help the bottom end alot. im sure that with some gearing changes and a pipe would help alot. what kind of riding are you doing, im guessing trails/hills.

I mostly ride MX. I was looking at the 2-stroke because they are easier to kick over. If I crash and stall my CRF450 sometimes it don't start back up real quick. I have a bad right hip that is getting worse and the 2-stroke seems to start quicker know matter what. I do like a smooth torquey motor though.

Why would he want to go and get an fmf pipe when he could send his cylinder to Eric Gorr for a more competitive price and a MUCH MORE effective result ?
