    What's the best tool for honing?

    Wiseco Nylon Brush Hone is the ideal if you want to pay that much.They are $120.00 here in the UK 2nd option is a 320 grit 3 inch Ball Hone.E-Bay has loads of them and I had one shipped to England from the states for $54.00 Do a search on Hone and you will read for hours.

    Where do you get your race gas?

    We get more HP and Torque out of our Fully Tuned CRF 250 motor using 98/99 Octane pump gas than VP MR9.We do however have very good consistant pump gas here in the UK.

    Wiring / Elcetrical Problem

    I am not too sure where you have broken this wire.If its on the Carby bit then this is the Honda part number for a replacement Throttle Sensor. 16060-KRN-671 Its $51.44 plus shipping from the Thumper Talk OEM Store. Only other option is to search for a Keihin FCR parts dealer.

    sick and tired....

    I use the Quick Action Gasser Throttle assembly with a single cable and it snaps back great.Closed to full open in just less than quarter of a turn.We run on the ovals flat out throttle all the time and it has never failed to close the slide ever.Buy a cable oiler and a tin of wd 40
  10. Am doing a full rebuild soon and need a full gasket set preferably with all the crankase seals.Which do you all use or prefer and where did you purchase them from ?.Do Honda do a complete set or are they all individually packaged ? Thanks

    CRF277 big bore and rev box Q?

    I ran a big gun cdi on our 05 Crf 250 which has been highly tuned and runs oval bore carb and matching carb to inlet and header pipe to exhaust ports.It made no difference at all and I got my money back. Your best choice is to find someone who can reprogramme an aftermarket cdi such as vortex but you will have to do it on the dyno.The 10 position switch on the vortex is a waste of time if you want it to rev.You have to reprogramme one of the numbers ie number 1 in the system to raise the rpm that the rev limiter kicks in.A little more advance on the timing between 10-13/14,000 rpm will help also.Number 10 on the vortex is the same as a standard honda cdi. Try talking to Ron Hamp who claims he can get 14,000 rpm out of his motors.He did mention a 2004 cdi somewhere in his posts. It will only work if the head is opened up or flowed and the valve train upgraded to allow the rpm increase to occur.

    Only Runs Fine With Hot Start Out

    Kelstr was correct. 'the ft of the slide is in with the square side with the hole in it pointing down' I put it in the wrong way ie Upside Down. Motor starts easily with no throttle and purs like a kitten at idle now !!! Many thanks for the quick reply and cure Phil
