We had a toy drive ride day for a member in our chapter that passed away on the track a few weeks ago.

I put a big bore 270cc kit on my aging bike...upping it from a 250. Really liking the bike again. The combination of the big bore and the new Yoshimira exhaust makes this bike soung great!

Here's a video of me taking it out the first time and breaking it in:

How much power change do you think it made ? More torque at a lower RPM ?


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Going big bore generally adds more torque throughout the whole range. I noticed it pulling harder from off idle all the way up through to 10,500 rpm. This bike's rev limiter is at 14k rpms...I never went past 10.5 though so I'm not sure if it signs off at the very top.

I've had this bike for 4&1/2 years now...was thinking about buying a new $12k 450. This bore kit and exhaust made it a different bike...bought the ole' girl some time! And it only cost me about $900! (wife's happy about that). I will still be shy about 10-15 horsepower to the 450s and 350s on my starting gate...but the fun factor just went way up!

This is the second moto on the 270 kit. My fitness pretty much said "Go on without me"...but I got some passes at the end:

My buddy went down hard in this one. Got fancy with the editor for the intro...turn it up if you're over 40!

Vienna, 2nd rock left.
Love the new sound, and also the fact you're going strong and keeping at it.

Thanks RS! I really like how the bike sounds too...it's got a nice growl to it. Still keeping at it it for sure...but I would replace "strong" with something like "dying inside"...lol. At 53...not sure how much longer I have left in this hobby! thumbsup
