cr 125 pre dilled pistons wiseco?prox?vertex?

which one has the pre drilled oil dispertion holes because i do not want to do it myself,thanks:thumbsup:

You only have to have the holes if it is a Forged piston, such as Wiseco.

Doing the holes is very easy

i have a wiseco piston that im going to install after i get my cylinder back. why do i need to drill a hole in it and where am i drilling it? what size?

Very specific instructions come with the piston (if they are not already done). If not, they have it on their website.

so vertex and pro x are cast? also what about namura tech?

I believe all pistons are cast except Wiseco. Oem, Namura, Pro-X, Vertex I believe are all cast and require no holes

I think why you have to have to holes is to cool down the exhaust bridge. The reason you have to have to holes with forged pistons is because they do not hold the oil as well as cast pistons.

I believe Wiseco would add the holes from the factory if it were possible. When I was working on several cr 85's I thought I would be smart and pre-drill the holes so it would be easier to switch a piston at the track. I predrilled a total of 4 pistons...2 for each bike.

The holes only matched on bike "A". Bike "B" had the bridge of the port several millimeters off. It would have still worked, but the holes would have did no good as they did not match up to the bridge. All of the bridges are not in the same place.

None of them matched the new oem cylinder we had to buy for one of the bikes.

My 02 CR125 Wiseco came pre drilled.

Dude, if it doesnt have holes, dont sweat it. Drilling them is easier than cleaning your filter

I just got my Wiseco piston in for a total top end rebuild that im doing, and im honestly scared of drilling the holes because i dont wanna mess it up and have to get a whole new piston.

my piston is down at

he's replating my cylinder and re working my head since its got so many pits in it. he's going to ceramic coat the head for heat resistance too. i'll call him up and have him drill a hole for me because i sure as hell dont wanna do it.

I was a little scared drilling into my new piston too. It only took a couple of minutes. It's not like you are drilling a very big hole. If you follow the instructions it will be pretty hard to mess up.

i just got my weisco piston and have to drill the oils disp. holes also. what kind of drill bit should i use on this thing?i know the size from the instructions but i have to buy some drill bits and never had experience with bits!!!

Wiseco Instructions say between .060" and .090" which converts to:

1/16" to 5/64"

Small drill bits. I used the 5/64" on mine.

      So Been rebuilding my bike and the rubber mallet just "wouldn't cut it"!!!!
      I had to pry managed to sand down it all looked flat but this seems a bit gappy.

      This is only on the outer edge but I can help worry this is going to leak or get shit into the engine.
      Any help or advice would be awesome thanks

      Hey guys, so cant find much online about cr 250r enduro conversions (nothing recent) so im wondering if it is an option or not. I currently have a crf 250x 2009 and a XR 650r. If i want a 2 stroke enduro but want to stick with the honda line up, is a 2007 or 2005 honda cr 250r a good option. and if so what would need to be done to it to get it up to spec for trail and enduro riding. Thanks very much

      If you own a 2 stroke dirtbike,please reply once. Im just wondering how many people on this site have them.

      Note: This specifically applies to the '92 - '01 CR250 engine, but it should be adaptable to any 2-stroke. The basic idea is to pull the carb and exhaust, plug one and pressurize the engine through the other to look for leaks.
      It's very important to pressure test a 2-stroke after it's assembled. The reason is that a 2-stroke gets it's lube through the pre-mix. An air leak means your engine can run lean. Lean means too little fuel. Too little fuel means too little lube. Too little lube means death to your engine. So here we go.
      First, you need to pull the seat, tank, shock, carb and pipe. Everything you need (other than a tire pump) is shown below.

      The assembly below is basically a 1-3/4" PVC plug (same OD as the intake pipe ID) that is transitioned down to a 0-15 psi gauge, a shut-off valve and a Schrader valve (to connect a tire pump). The 1-3/4" PVC plug is a tight fit in the intake pipe, but it'll fit with enough persuasion. I used yellow heavy duty pipe tape (made for gas systems) to put everything together. I don't have all the technical names for everything, but if you take the pictures to a hardware store, they should be able to help you piece it together.

      The item below is an adjustable rubber freeze plug. They are available at automotive parts stores in various sizes, but the closest one I could make work was a 1-3/4" version. You tighten the nut which squeezes two metal plates together which squeezes and expands the rubber piece between the plates. You have to tighten it a lot, but it makes a good seal in the exhaust port.

      Before you install everything, make sure that the piston is at BDC (so that all the ports are open), the spark plug is installed and all other components are properly tightened. Below, you can see the gauge/valve assembly installed in the intake pipe. Make sure to tighten your intake pipe hose clamp tightly as the pressure will tend to push the assembly out.

      Below, you can see the freeze plug installed in the exhaust port.

      Once you have everything installed as shown, use a tire pump to pressurize the engine to 6 - 8 psi, then close the valve and watch the gauge for any pressure drop over a 5 - 10 minute period. A well sealed engine will hold pressure with no observable pressure drop for 10 minutes easily.
      One common "leak" in a healthy '92 - '01 CR250 engine (and probably other types) is through the powervalve linkage. It probably doesn't affect performance, but it'll sure throw your leak measurements off. To avoid leaks, make sure the powervalve linkage is correctly lubed (per the Service Manual) with grease and Moly 60 Paste during assembly.
      If your engine holds pressure with no observable drop for 10 minutes, you're good to go. If the pressure drops 2 - 3 psi or more over 10 minutes, spray soapy water all around the pressure test parts first to check for leaks there. If you find none on the test setup, start spraying the soapy water around the base gasket, head gasket, center gasket etc. Any pressure drop of less than 2 psi over 10 minutes is your call, but I'd definitely fix it.
      I've had really good results by using Permatex Copper Gasket Sealant on the base gasket, PV cover gasket and reed cage gasket. I don't use anything on the head gasket.

      What value would you say a 1986 cr250 with a freshly plated cylinder and new top end, newer tires, newer chain & sprockets, in overall very good condition?
      I picked up the bike (cheap) a month or so ago in need of cylinder replating & top end. Apparently the headgasket blew internally scouring the cylinder. The crank feels good and the bike is very clean/good condition.
      I havent put the bike together yet (too busy to ship cylinder and order parts), but figure I would have a total of $600 (including bike cost) to get it into good running cond.
      A friend wants to buy it as-is for his 15 yr old 200# kid. What value wouldyou put on it in As-is condition vs with a fresh engine?
