2014 CRF250r Engine Mods

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I'm actually new to the forum and just created my page, so hello to you all! Anyways, I have a 2014 Honda Crf250r that I purchased in December of '16 with only 34.5 hours on it. I have since ridden that bike everyday that my work schedule allows, and she now has 100 hours on her. I have noticed the bike has become a bit harder to start, taking 10-20 kicks compared to the 1 or 2 that it would originally take to start it. Once the bike hit 100 hours, I decided it was time to tear it down to the frame and open up the heart of the beast. Upon removing my stock air boot, I noticed some dirt in my throttle body. After removing my throttle body, I also noticed some dirt where the throttle body connects to the engine... Probably why my bike is getting hard to start... Now I have not opened up my engine yet, and this is where you guys come in to help, but what exactly should I replace internal wise in my engine at 100hrs? I consider myself a C or B class rider, and I stay in the upper rpm range of my bike frequently. I would like to gain a little bit more power out of my bike, specifically in the top end/over-rev area since my bike has enough bottom end already to pop wheelies in 4th if I really try. I was thinking a high compression piston, cam, and idk what else. I don't want to lose bottom end power though, and I would like these internals to be reliable too. What part recommendations do you guys have, and what are some good brands?

High Compression piston, race fuel, good camshaft and porting along with mapping should get you what your looking for and more! I would be doing a full rebuild on that motor with that many hours. New/rebuilt crankshaft (would be a good idea to have yours rebuilt with a carillo rod if your planning on adding some serious power to this motor. All new bearings and seals and you'll be good to go.

Hey thanks for the replies guys, I would've gotten back sooner but I have been busy working the past two days. I do want a high compression piston, just not sure how high of compression and which brand to go with. I have heard head porting is great for these bikes so I will probably look into that! Is there a cheap way to get that done? As far as race fuel goes, I can't afford it right now, so I would like to still be able to run on 93 octane until I get an ecu with race fuel maps. I was researching crankshafts, and from what I have read, the stock crankshafts hold up very well and are very reliable. I think I'm going to put a '17 crank in mine.

I am planning on keeping this bike for a long time and making it a project bike, even after I eventually get a 450. However, for right now I need to keep this rebuild fairly cheap if I can, preferably under $1k
