New to this and need advice on Big bore kit

All my buddies and I have the bbr 82 kits, I want bigger. Is an 88 kit any faster. Do I need the hipo head?? Which brand and does the clutch live with this power??? Thanks in advance. :naughty:

Go with the trailbikes 88 kit. it will be faster then a 82cc and for less money.

If you are looking to go with an 88kit I have one used. Takegawa R-stage

Yeah go with the trailbikes kit. You don't NEED the race head, but can you really object to more power? If you go with the BB race head kit you should at least get HD springs in your stock clutch. :naughty:

Thanks guys.

Rice, what do you want for your kit?? Does it have the head??

So what is this kit on ebay I am seeing for 399.00 for the 88 with the head?? Is that one anygood?

I think I just answered my own question. So the 399.00 kit on hondatrailbikes is the one I want???

And what about the hi rev boxes, worth the money?? They are cheap enough. Safe?? How much gain.

Thanks again

if you have a big bore... then get the rev box.... definately go with the trail bikes 88cc kit w/ head

that is the 399.00 kit on hondatrailbikes right?????????

another thing, when I get this kit, what gearing do I want. We ride a pretty tight track right now that 2nd is not enough and 3rd cant pull the hills??

yes it is that one and I run one tooth larger up front and it does fine... my best reccomendation is that you try the stock gearing with the new motor, you will now be able to make it up those hills no problem!

make sure you get HD clutch springs though..... or the TB manual cltuch kit..... the clutch kit will change the gearing on its own, making it more usable AND faster.....

pm sent....

ive got the 88 R-stage and it is incredibly fast. i cant compare it to the guys on here with 106/108/110's or whatever size their stroker motors are but when i compare mine to my friends 88 S-stage, no comparison. as for the clutch, you're gonna need at least the springs with the race head. my 50 is about a month old and the clutch was just fine before the kit, well now, if i shift hard into any gear it slips. definately worth it.

where do I get the clutch springs???

Thanks Guys!!!!

The Takegawa 88 R-stage and TrailBikes 88 Racehead are very comparible and probably within about .5hp of each other im sure depending on tuners capabilities. But the Trailbikes is by far the better deal.

Yes, but when it comes time to sell the little extra would go a long way... If you put two bikes together and asked me to buy one and they were the same price but one had the TB and one had the Takegawa setup I would take the R-stage without a doubt.... Ultimately he will make his own decision.

True, but, that is unlikely to happen, being the person who bought the TB kit didnt pay as much, so they can sale for less, and not loose as much, whereas the person saling the R-stage for the same price is loosing more money.

But it is his decision.

yes you are correct somewhat... But an R-stage will bring more... if you got it for around 550 it would actually help his equation.

:naughty::naughty: You lose your ass selling a 50 no matter what kit you have in it.

now there is something we can BOTH agree on... lmao well sorta.. it makes sense in my mind.. lol

      I have an 07 CRF70 that I have done the filter pod modificaiton by cutting the extension tube off and I have drilled a couple of holes in the end of the exaust per some instructions on a thread here at TT.
      I have recently had some problems getting the bike to idle consistently. I am wondering if I should try and rejet the bike at all or get a needle from an older carb that is adjustable. I do have a unifilter that I can put in as well with the stock pod that I cut.
      It is not that the bike wont run or start, it just seems to only idle if I turn it up significantly but as soon as I turn it down even 1/8 of a turn it dies. But the idle that I set to keep it running well is too fast as the bike will move forward if in gear and no throttle is applied.
      Any suggestions? Jetting, needle, air screw change with an older carb?

      hello guys I'm like really new to this, like extremely new but I was going to buy xr-70r from a friend and drop a Lifan 125cc engine in it (here's the link: ). Now the site says its a 4preed trans with normal gear set up (1-n-2-3-4), and manual front clutch, I'm wondering if I need to buy the clutch lever, perch, and cable then connect it all. Then secondly, what pip should I be looking for I'm not sure if the header would have to be a different style or what exactly.... please be patient with me I'm doing the best I can to learn... thanks

      Hey everyone.  Darn glad to have found this forum!
      Just bought my son a 2009 CFR70 (first bike - 8 years old) and the first thing I'm doing is scrapping the factory air box for a UNI pod filter.
      I'm looking for advice on how I can open up/modify the factory exhaust for more performance.  I heard about removing the screen and drilling some holes but have not found those posts. Any specific advice would be greatly appreciated. (Found only a couple performance aftermarket pipes that were very pricey.)
      I'm thinking after the air filter change and pipe opening the main jet size may need to be increased. It's a stock 13mm Keihin carb.  What size is recommended?  Haven't looked at the stock size yet. 
      I assume the needle is adjustable on the slide (but don't know if this would do any good or be necessary anyway) and hope there is an air mixture screw somewhere because it seems the carb could use a bit of adjustment now.  Although next to the idle screw it looks like a brass cap or plug rather than a screw. (See photo attached.)
      Thanks for any advice.  It's great to be part of this group.  Ride on!

      Hello all, reaching out to you today to get some help with a small project I am trying to do.
      I just bought a 2006 CRF50 for my 3 year old and would like to rig it up with a wireless remote kill switch for those just in case moments. I have the throttle speed screw installed and will limit it that way also but want a back up until she is proficient and I feel confident.
      Since this bike does not have electric start there is no battery. I was wondering if any one has or knows how to rig up a wireless car alarm system to work as a remote kill switch. I know I will need a 12 Volt battery on the bike which I can get. I know there is a product from 3Built that does this but the range is only 250 feet and some say it is even less than that. I was thinking of a car system since the range is usually around 1,000 feet which is overkill but I prefer overkill when it comes to this topic,
      Any DIY thoughts you might have or suggestions would be appreciated.
