Micro polishing gear sets!!

Recommended Posts

I know some of the gurus browse this forum, and because i own a CRF250 too i though id ask here.

Ive seen it talked about, but never really heard of it being put to use, polishing gears sets!!!

Is this a specialised subject, what needs doing, and special tools/equipement, or just elbow grease and time???????

Seems a reasonably simple way to translate power to the ground, reducing loses in the transmission. :)

Im also looking into the lightest tyres i have available too.

I also saw today, a chain that had been drilled in every link with a maybe 1/8 drill. I presume to reduce rotating and also sprung weight.???

:) Cheers guys.

The process you are referring to is called REM finishing. Basically the parts are chemically polished to get down into all of the tight spots where normal polishing tools could never reach. It will reduce friction and drag in the gearbox and will increase horsepower at the rear wheel. It costs around $200 to $250 dollars here in the U.S. for one gear set.
