Who sells the best bang for the buck FCR Carb/Big Bore/HotCam Combo?

Recommended Posts

Or does such a combo not exist?

 

If not what is the closest option?

 

Links and part numbers appreciated.

 

Thanks.

470cc seems like a bit much, no? Isn't 434 or 436 the most popular?

 

Any idea what kinda labor at my local shop I'd be likely looking at?

Have you seen the comprehensive BB install guide the E.Marquez has done......????

If you don't feel comfy to do it yourself and ask around for a bike shop with a good reputation for mechanicals....

just get quotes on the work you want done....

Make sure whoever does the motor work is aware of the cyl head torque specs , if Joe Public @ your local bike shop does it , he may use a manual not knowing the recommended torque spec .

 

Absolutely........ :thumbsup:

That fender does look cool but shame the sm forks carnt have them :( i like the little ones the wr 125s have there awsome! And if you mainly do street the stroker is better? You can gear it higher and also still have the power for highways? :D like the stock drz for highway crusing without raping the engine the gearing would have to be around 15/41 whats good but leaves little power anything rather than 1st gear ahah

So probably looking at the kit being around $1k and maybe close to the same in labor?

In Australia I got quoted $400 to do a bigbore and cams, surely it would be cheaper in the states.

I paid $190 for the big bore kit 3 months ago, and just paid $95 for the cams install, if that helps with ballpark budgeting.

Where do you guys get a set of hotcams for a good price .. I also heard stage two is no longer available .. I'm doing a rebuild my self and I'm in it about 1300 bucks minus cams and fcr ... Ands that's including stock crank, crank bearings , athena bbk, chain , oil pump , plastic gear for oil pump, new valves, springs, seals cotters ... Now on the hunt for cams and carb .. Just under 2,000 give or take with a complete build top to bottom ...
