Hotcams and BB piston on a WR250f

Hey I am kinda new to this post a thread thing but I had a question. I took my bike to a local tuner and told him I wanted something to get a bit more bang from my 250 he recommended the stage II hotcams intake and exhaust, je BB piston (262), he said I could go bigger but I dont want to sacrifice to much on the driveabilty and of the stock motor. The tuner also said that he would do a full dyno tune and clean up the head for me. If anyone has a similar setup and can recommend or offer some differnt advice that would be great.:p

I also forgot to mention my bike has all the free mods, Qs2 from Boysen, mega bomb header and q4 fmf pipe on it.

If your not racing in a class where your bike needs to be a 250cc bike, then you can definitely go for a 262cc big bore kit. But, if your spending the $400 or so to get the 262cc, why not just go to a 290 cc kit for the same price?

Does that stretch the limit of the bore, I know that in cars you should only bore it out so far other wise you have reliablity problems. I just dont know al that much about what is "too much."

give jesse from williamsmotowerx a call first, he could proubly get you all the power you need with his head work and cams.

Well, any type of horsepower modification that results in an increase will decrease reliability. But between a 262 and a 290 I would not know which is more reliable since there is no hard facts saying which one is more reliable over the other. The 262 is a bored out 249cc cylinder, so the cylinder walls are a millimeter thinner, where as the 290 cc kit is a whole new cylinder designed to handle the larger bore piston, so it's not just a bored out cylinder.
