How to get more power up top

I have a 2013 crf250r and installed a yoshi slip on. Helped the bottom end a lot but it just falls off in higher rpms now. I'm looking for a way to get the top end back and keep the bottom. Any way of doing that without remapping the ecu ?

you should have gotten the full system because the header is what changes a lot of power in most cases. And why not ecu... its the cheapest and probably the fastest easiest way to get hp

From the dyno charts they had on the site, i didn't see a noticeable difference in slip on versus full system. But riding I sure do. And cost played a role. But I just looked at Tokyo mods site and will probably have it remapped.

Hotcams stage 2?

i just got n 04 crf250r and its got a powerbomb header, fmf slip on, stage 2 hotcam, and Im not sure if the ecu has been upgraded. How can I tell? ( I know how stupid I sound)

its got awesome mid and topp, but even with the 13/53 sprocket setup it still seems too high geared, I wish 2nd was where 1st was, and I had a lower geared 1st for my local woods, when I try to crawl it just boggs out and stalls. Any ideas? whats the biggest rear sprocket available for the 250r?

my 13 i went with yosh rs4 full,stage 2 hotcam,v4orfce airbox and have been trying maps from eddie and tokyo mods,the cam takes a bit of bottom away i noticed but it for sure pulls up top better depending which maps used.i had a 11 with the exact same setup and it seamed like it didnt run out of steam as quick on the top but had less mid.iam guessing the changes to throttle body and head might play a roll in that.

You absolutely need a remap, no matter what.

I just took my bike out to the local ridding area( brown mountain orv park in western nc), and this thing is an absolute missle, it sucks bc u cant go slow around technical stuff like rocks and such, but at 7mph and up, u cant stop this beast, or slow it down, this is the most air Ive got since I started ridding, I cant wait to get back out there, but 1st and 2nd gear are so close on mine that a lower first is exactcly what I want to do to it considering I like every way it performs else where, im sure that this is all my bike needs and I will repost the outcome as soon as I order and install a new first

cam and remap

the heads one these bikes respond very well to porting also.

I went with a one tooth smaller sprocket, ( down to a 12 tooth), but it was eatin at me the way this thing was so powerful but would stall so easy at low rpms, I also got to thinking and the bike was previously used to race at almost 3000 feet elevation above where I live, so I decided to tinker with the carb, sure enough, it was way out of adjust ment, the fuel screw was even mangled like someone had went next to it with a screwdriver and bent it when they tried to turn it, ( which was understandible bc I thought it was on it too until I couldnt get a change in the idle and used a dental mirror to see the problem), after turning it till I liked it was the time to find out that it no longer had an abnormal stall, but the power part of the rev that used to be half way through is there as soon as u touch it, now my only problem is if u twist it too fast u will land on ur back side, I had to learn a steady slow roll is the proper way to accelerate if im too keep the front tire anywhere close to the ground in any gear, thanks for the replies, now all I need is a rekluse clutch for this one and the 02 crf450r that Im buying, Ive heard nothing but good about those things

      Jeremy Martin Leads the Charge for Wiseco Riders at Daytona Supercross
      Christian Craig Turns in Career Best in 450 Competition
      MENTOR, Ohio (March 13, 2018) – Jeremy Martin showed the way for Wiseco-sponsored riders in Saturday night’s Monster Energy Daytona Supercross presented by Honda. In a season marred by bad luck and misfortune, Martin put together a near flawless ride to earn his first Eastern Regional 250SX Class podium finish of the season.
      Martin qualified eighth for the division’s annual visit to the World Center of Racing, finished fourth in his heat race, and came home second in the 250SX main event, missing his first win of the year by less than a second.

      “It’s Daytona, a real man’s track.” said Martin who sits fourth in points. “It was the toughest race of the year as far as fitness. I had to slow down a little bit, halfway through the main. I was getting close to (race winner) Jordon (Smith) and I was starting to think about where I could make a move on him, then I made some mistakes and he got away from me. Couldn’t quite get close again, but it’s good. We’re on the podium and in contention for wins again. That’s something I haven’t been able to say in supercross in a while. We want to get wins and now we know it’s coming.”
      Martin’s podium was a bright spot, but the rest of the event was rough for the GEICO Honda/Factory Connection squad. RJ Hampshire crashed hard in his heat race and had to be transported to a local hospital. He injured his back and ribs, but shoulder pain left him with the most concern.
      “I felt good on the bike all day,” said Hampshire via his Instagram account. “Had some pretty good speed and my foot just slid off hitting my shifter in those rollers during that heat race. After seeing the pictures from the crash I’m very thankful I didn’t take a shot to my head. I have some fractures in my T3/T4 in my back and ribs. Also have some damage to my lungs which is why I’ll be spending a couple nights in the hospital. I’ll be getting some more checkups this week on the shoulder also.”
      Cameron McAdoo, the third member of the team, was unable to compete at Daytona after being sidelined with a hand injury two races ago in Atlanta.
      Across the paddock, in the premier 450SX Class, Christian Craig got the call to fill in for Team Honda HRC. With the team’s regular riders Ken Roczen and Cole Seely out with injuries, it was up to Craig to carry the load for the factory team, and the upstart rider didn’t disappoint.
      The San Diego native was solid in both qualifying sessions, won his heat race and snagged the holeshot in the division’s main event. After relinquishing the lead to eventual winner Justin Brayton, Craig continued to show he was up for the challenge. The 26-year-old rider raced for second and third for most of the 20-minute-plus-one-lap feature before losing one more spot in the late goings to bring his No. 32 Honda CRF450R home fourth in the final rundown.

      “I had a great week testing with the team,” commented Craig. “They came down to Florida right after Atlanta and I feel like we really improved. Just getting more time on the bike and getting more comfortable was huge. I started off race day feeling really good. My qualifying position didn’t really show it, but overall I was happy with my riding. It’s all about having fun out there, and man, that’s what I did tonight. I was up front in the heat race, fell to third, but then the two guys in front took each other out so I ended up winning. You can call it luck or whatever, but I just put myself in a good position to capitalize on people’s mistakes."
      “I had a good gate pick and some confidence going into the main. I grabbed the holeshot and led for almost the first lap, but [Justin] Brayton got by me pretty quick. I stayed second for quite a while. I just rode my hardest and did my best. Unfortunately, a couple guys got by me so I ended up fourth. The track was so tough. This is only my second time racing Daytona and last year didn’t go well, so I really wanted to get some revenge this year. It’s better than the week before, but man, I was so close to a podium. I just need to keep putting myself in good positions and work on getting better each weekend.”
      Monster Energy AMA Supercross rolls on this weekend when the series visits the “Gateway to the West” for its annual race at the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis. The 11th of 17 races on the 2018 supercross calendar will be televised live on FS1 Saturday, March 17, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 5 p.m. Pacific.

      Hi all,
      My main question is how can I make my 250r more reliable. I have owned it for 2 years and it was spent about 1 year in the shed probably needing new valves and piston rings (i have been putting it off) Will steel valves last longer and work well in the engine? Also, what are your thoughts of me selling it and buying something newer? is it worth it?

      I checked the valve clearance on my 06 crf250r and both exhaust valves is at .007 and the intake is (left side) .005 and (right side) .000??? idk my feeler gague only went down to .002 and it would not slide in.
      Is that ok for the exhaust? Do I need to just shim the right side on the intake? or does both need shimming?
