Fastest 250 2-stroke?

9 posts in this topic

Hi.

I need a little help to pick a bike for my use, and that is just driving around at my farm with my buddies. We drag races, wheelies, jumping and stuff... So I'm out for a hard hitting bike that screams in the mid-top-end range.

My last bike was a 2005 SX 250, but i was kinda disapointed as i barley could keep up with my buddy's 2001 KX 250:( don't get me wrong, the bike was fast, but i missed the top-end hit of my 2003 SX 125!

I'm in for mods that increases top end power!

I'm looking for a used bike 03-08.

cr's and kx's make lots of top end...kx more midrange..yz has lots of low, and the rm is decent everywhere, and hits pretty hard..find a good deal on a bike and get a big bore kit :busted:

The motor may not be the limiting factor in your drag races. :busted:

That said, the CR250R motor has great top end.

You both have 250 2Ts, so they can't be THAT different. I think that you should just focus on your riding, and not worry about a new bike. Are you power shifting in the drag races? Slipping the clutch coming out of a turn? Braking later than your friend? What mods have you added to your current bike?

Thanks for all the reply's!

We don't run on MX tracks, just open fields and in the woods here at my farm.

In this matter my riding skills are good enough to exploit this bikes fully in a straight line run.

A Honda CR might be an option, Any particular year to look for? Which are the best mods for this bike so I can get a screamer?:busted:

2005+ was the best motors for the CR250R. That said, a YZ250 with a Pro Circuit platinum pipe will likely pull just as hard/long on top. Snoop around in the Honda 2 stroke section here to see what folks do to setup their CRs. :busted:

Porting and head mods are likely your best mod followed by jetting. Some guys put Keihin PWK carburetors on their CRs. The YZ and I think RM/KX comes OEM with that.

Personaly I'd get a 01- 03 KTM 250sx then put a 380 cylinder on it making it really close to if not a 360sx.... Now that would be tuff to beat...
