Interesting Chat with Machine Shop

Recommended Posts

Hey all. Recently had The seats cut in my 05 CRF 250 Head at a highly recomended machine shop. When I dropped the head in the Engineer Said "Nooo not a CRF Head youre Kidding me" (Sarcastic). He tells me he gets 5 CRF Heads to every other manufacturer. Now in the area in which I live the majority of bikes are eithier Yamaha or KTM so its not due to numbers.

Please note that this is by no means a slag on our great CRF's nor do I intend to spark any massive Debate. Just found it interesting.

For the record I will be sticking with Honda Regardless :ride:

There are probably 5 Hondas in service to every other mfg too.

actually its 7 :excuseme::crazy:

i too get more honda componets to work on than any other make out there .

--and you also have to remember that generally as a rule the really fast guys are on hondas ( at a priveteer level )---because they do hold up better,

so i will get alot of work on the really fast guys that are running the hell out of these things ,

you get a fast guy on a kawi, suzuki or a ktm -----and i just turn it away ,

after about 3 months on those there is not enough left to salvadge ,

its cheeper to just get a new one .

we have one kid out here on kawis ( he gets them cheep ) he just destroyed his 7th kxf 250 this year --all 07's------he had to grab his buddys 450 to race glene helen this weekend ------he took a 3rd in the pro class on a strange 450 he hated ---:excuseme:

Kelster,

You see more honda's being done becuase more Honda's are sold than all the other bikes, and your Honda owner is the more, oh, intelligent owner :).
