Head options

Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 250 that just blew a head gasket.   I am going to have the head checked for warp and in the mean time I am looking for pricing/options for a replacement head in the case the head is warped beyond the .004" tolerance.  I tried to search the TT store, but for some reason the Find Vehicle is not finding a cr 250!!!

Aside from oem, what head options are there for my relic of a ride?  Thanks

If your current head is warped you should be able to take it to a machinist and have it milled to flatten out the mating surface to the head/head gasket for a lot less than the cost of a new head. Just a thought.

If your head is warped just get a piece of plate glass and some 500 grit sand paper and just lap it in a figure 8 pattern. Done deal.

This^^ that's what the FSM says to do, inspect for cracks as well.
