Best cam? Best bore kit?

I have a 2005 crf250x, i used to ride it on trails, now iv taken off my pants goin balls out on it. I love speed and scary to ride stuff, so im totally decking it out to make it better than the R model, but with a light and electric start. Im tryin to get it to pull up in all gears if i can. I dont really need a top speed as much as i would want a fatty roost and big wheelys, no more than 50 or 60, but i want to be able to pull it up in all gears and me able to take it to the track and own some. What about the Ice cube bore kit? Are bore kits that hard to install? I totally stripped my dirtbike down when i did some other stuff to it, rejetted and everything else no problem and i used to be a mechanic at a chainsaw and small engine shop. As far as cams, i mean shimming them and getting them perfect, i plan on getting a more heavy duty valve kit(know of a good one?), are cams that hard to install? :excuseme:

I have a '05 crf250R with a fully modded motor. First of all you will need about 3 or 4 thousand dollars to spend on the motor to build a mod bike similar to mine or you could go less expensive and build a big bore. All in all it still costs money. You might be better off starting with the R and building one of them since they start with an advantage stock. Mdk Speed equipment will be offering motor kits soon. You can check out Their site is underconstruction but should be up soon with a online store.

im in the same boat. not soon. but in about a year, i want to make my bike best possiable wicked power, without buying a 450. since i have a 450R at hand, but like my X better.

im gonna get the ice cube 302 kit. spose to be insane. and its not "too" expensive for what ya get.

if i had the ability to do what i want right now, like you, i would..

302 from ice cube

keep stock gearing so its low enough to lift up in all gears like you said (i want that to, like without workin hard)

IDK, im way of base, but if you can use the stock cam, im assuming you can use an aftermarket cam as well with the 302.

so get the 302, with a stage 2 hot cam. since the 302 adds huge down low-mid, the stage 2 (top end) cam would make for good high end power as well as huge low end.

and in reality, you could add a stage 1 hot cam (down low-mid) to the 302, and go with a 13 front sprocket to keep a little more control. that would be beastly.

i think thats what your lookin for. at least thats what i will end up with

      Hey I have a crf250x 2005 I was riding today in top gear flat out and when I slowed down blue smoke just poured out the exsaughst then I happened to open the air box lid and saw it has what looked like engine oil in it then took out air filter and noticed that there was splatters of engine oil on the inside and that and the channel that goes to the carby had engine oil all over it.
      Also bike got a top end rebuild 15 hours ago
      The engine still runs good and sounds normal
      why would this be happening on a resonabley fresh engine

      Hey everybody. Quick question for y'all. I recently went riding and about halfway through my ride my motor seized on my '07 CRF250X. I haven't investigated it much but I checked the oil when I got home and there basically was none so I'm assuming that was the culprit. There weren't any metal shavings in the filter or on the plug either. At this point I'm trying to decide to rebuild the motor or just sell the bike as is and let the next buyer deal with it (they would know the deal obviously.) I feel that I'm pretty mechanically inclined but rebuilding a CRF engine is a bit out of my league and I assume paying a shop to do it would put me out more money than the bike is worth. So, I have this question to ask; what would be a fair price for a pretty dang nice shape 07 CRF250X, with a seized motor with an unknown extent of internal damage?

      I have two rides in on my new Rekluse auto clutch and I have to say I'm very pleased. The install wasn't hard, but was pretty much a all afternoon sort of project. I also installed a left hand rear brake kit and a two finger cluth over-ride with the adjuster on the perch (which I rarely seem to need). It has all worked great right from the beginning. After struggling to get up a tricky hill in first gear, I tried it in second and the autoclutch helped me clean the hill easily. Not having to worry about clutch action in techinical sessions has also eased fatigue and just made it more fun all the way around. I ride mountain bikes alot, and having both brakes up on the bars has also been nice as it makes for a set-up just like the bicycle - in fact I like that as much as not having to worry about clutch manipulation. The brake on the bar is especially nice on tricky downhill sections where you need to paddle, such as nasty rock/rut stuff. So first impressions are that it was worth the investment -making the ride more enjoyable and easier at the same time!

      I was driving the bike for 15min or so and all of the sudden the bike stalled. I tried starting it again with no luck. I took the spark plug out to see if there is spark so i ground the spark plug to the frame and there is no spark. I even put a new spark plug in the bike and still nothing. Any ideas what i should check??
