conversion build

Recommended Posts

Well after looking at several cr/rm85 bikes for my conversion build I decided to peice it together from ebay. Everything is from an cr85 except the front end; it's a crf150r and has the larger 15mm front axel instead on the 85 12mm. The engine is a crf80 with a 3mm longer rod so I can run crf/klx based pistons. The cases are bored and the crank litened. I'm going to be running the takagawa stage 3 head with cam. Here are some pics of the begining of my build.

I want to thank Terry from Firepowerminis for his knowledge of the crf80 engine and for helping me out on parts and machine work.

build inspired by Doms(hackmunch) bike and settintrendz conversion build

The one thing about the CRF150r forks is the oil piston (I'm guesing that's what it's called) has smaller holes than the CR85 forks, so it's a much more harsh fork. You need to swap them out for something else or run a Racetech Gold Valve to get more oil through there. I just went through all that with my CRF150RB. Interesting motor selection with the KLX piston. We always talked about doing that, but never did.

Awesome!!

I've been wondering about that 57mm TB Lifan Big Valve head piston.

Curious what the compression ratio worked out to?

Good luck with your build!

Looking forward in seeing it progress!

Sorry for your family's loss. It seems that he was a great man. The world would be a better place if we all had a list of accomplishments like that.

On a more trivial note...

The build looks great so far! Can't wait to see this one come together. Keep us all posted.
