what to do for better performance

Recommended Posts

hey, i have a 05 crf250r, that i just got about a week or so ago, and i was wondering what i should do to it performance wise, and maybe a little for cosmetics. the bike is all white, and it has a full dr.D pipe.

I have the same bike in my stable and it runs great bone stock. Motor needs nothing but a competent rider. Set the suspension and twist the throttle.

does a high compression piston really make a difference ?

Yes...and the 2005 cam was the mildest of all the R cams. It's the cam of choice for CRF250X trail riders who want to bump up their performance a bit.

Simplest performance mod you can make is repack your DrD.

If you enjoy repacking more than riding get the 13 dollar stuff people recommend on TT.

If you enjoy riding more than repacking go with DrD's Pro Pack kit for 40 bucks plus shipping that will easily give you 50 plus hours probably more provided you keep a wash plug in when you give your bike a bath.

run octane booster for quick added performance i do and the throttle response is way better and you simply have more power.

Octane boost does not produce more power. It actually slows down the flame spread rate and can result in less complete combustion and cause carbon buildup.

Use the lowest octane fuel that you can with out pinging.

Some "race fuels" are oxygenated and can produce more power, but octane boost in a can isn't one of them.

Port your head. Then have crfheads.com do there $600 head job to make the valves last. :thumbsup: Then spend some of that money you have on riding lessons so you can twist the throttle alot further.

The biggest gains for your dollars RHC 5 cam and spring kit along with a 14-1 piston .If you have the money race fuels that will make a big difference would be vp mxro1 a very clean burning fuel or the renegade sx4+ its $200 for a 5 gallon pale
