Takegawa 124cc Stage 3 kit for XR/NSF100 came in today!

Recommended Posts

Well, I knew this week would be a good week with all the parts I've ordered coming in for my NSR/NSF roadrace bike, but I never would of expected what came today!

Check out what came knocking on my door today!!!! The guy I worked with in Japan shipped this stuff so damn fast! If anyone wants any trick parts that you can only get from Japan, get it thru him! mitz44@tlp.sakura.ne.jp

I saved about $250 or more in going with him and he was VERY helpful in answering me all my questions!! To give you an idea of how fast it took to get here, he shipped it to me on Friday and it got to my doorstep today (Monday)! Can't say enough good things about that! All I'm waiting on are a few more parts and it will be ready to go!!!

Check it out..

The next few minutes after getting to this point was like nothing around was going on, my son running thru the house at 90mph chasing our puppy yelling at him, SpongeBob Square Pants on the TV, phone ringing with my wife calling, pizza in the oven burning.. I didn't hear a thing, or cared what happened and the next 10 minutes of opening the boxes was pure bliss!!

And check out what I found... going thru all the stuff, I found that Takegawa does recommend that you do the oil jet spray mod (see my other topic about this that I posted last week) with this kit and the Scut kits!

Not only look,but handle as gently.Feel every surface and look for special features.

Very nice motor.Thru all your research,what were your deciding factors?

I love your bike,and the fact you share so freely what you did,how you did it,and maybe what you would do next time.

Bob, thanks man! Yeah, I like to share as much as I can with others because I know there might be one other person with the same questions that I had? Plus, I've got a lot of free time at the fire house, so nothing better to do then talk about bikes and what not between emergencies.

As far as my research goes, I really wanted to get the Yosh 125 stroker kit, but after many emails to Yosh R&D USA and some delayed responses to questions and the lack of knowledge about the kit without having to call someone from Japan or look up the same info I can online... As well as the cost of the kit (over $2k) it wasn't going to happen! Plus, nobody stocks parts for the yosh kits here in the states. If I need rings, I can get tak parts here!

The Kitaco kit was also on the list to look into. Believe it or not, I almost went with that kit, but they didn't offer a roller cam, and I really wanted a roller cam, so I didn't go with that one. Plus, I couldn't pass up the deal that Mitz gave me! But, for the money.. The kitaco 125cc kit is a great deal!!

Takegawa is a great product that has been proven both on dirt and the roadrace bikes! Parts can be bought just about anywhere online and it had the roller cam that was in my price range!

I really liked the BBR 120 kit that I've raced with for the past two years. It has held up to some abuse! The first year I raced with that motor, my teammate and I did a 2hr endurance race with my bike. I wanted to see how it would do and what the cylinder would look like after that long of a race! Well, we won and did over 100 miles on the kart track with no hick-up! Pulled the cylinder and it looked like it did when I installed it 6 months before!

Great kit for the money it was!

Yeah, I get to work on stuff here.. I took my bodywork in today to fiberglass a few spots and get it ready for paint.

And I'm going to put this on a dyno, as soon as I get it all together!

hi there does any one know if the head fits an xr100 jug?

Yes, the super head should fit, it just as bigger valves and port work done to it. I know of some NSF racers using a Poweroll 110 piston kit with Kitaco superhead and it does really well!!

I had some concerns about the over size combustion chamber and the large valves fitting in side the stock 53mm bore, (apposed to a stander big bore 57mm and larger) I just- mock up a Tak' superhead on a stock cylinder, and valve to cylinder clearance isn't a issue. So-Yes- it will fit

However, pistons options and compression ratios are questionable, Here is some info http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=867248&highlight=bbr+takegawa

I also did the Takegawa oil jet mod on the case... I wasn't scared to do it on the spare case, but I had to control my breathing when drilling the tiny 1mm hole!

While you're at it put a bigger breather in it. It actually increases horse power a bit by releaving excess case pressure (I don't know what's the percent). Someone makes a valve cover one, but I can't remember who. I know Dave miller has drilled a tapped the case one and used a fitting. BBR had a article on the valve cover one if you want to do it yourself, but I can't remember which side it's supposed to be on. But with all that extra power it's going to build up a lot more pressure. HURRY UP AND BUILD THIS!!!!:thumbsup:

You should, I always forget when I have my cases apart. I just thought of it when I saw your cases apart and didn't want you to do the same thing I always do. I can't wait until you dyno it.

Bore kit, 124cc Stage III Takegawa Super Head. The Stage III bore kit is the best of the best for the 124cc kits. It incorporates all of the goodies that you require for top level performance.

1) 57mm High Compression Piston

2) 48.5mm Racing Crankshaft

3) 12.6:1 Compression Ratio

4) Nicasil Cylinder design for tighter tolerances and lower friction and less parasitic losses.

5) Roller Bearing design on the cam supports

6) 28.5mm Intake Valve

7) 23.5mm Exhaust Valve

8) 4.5mm Valve Stem diameter

9) Higher rate valve springs, for higher lift cams and more over-Rev.
