Default 2000 cr 250 mods.

     

I'm new to the site and new to 2-strokes for the most part. I have experience working on engines in general but not 2-strokes in particular. My main question is will a set of Boysen pro-series reeds provide much of a boost in performance. I was going to take my reeds out and look at them as I think they are original however I don't want to do it without having some to put back if they are bad because I don't want waste my time. I was also considering a Rad Valve kit. Is the extra 100 bucks worth it?

To me the cages aren't worth it. My son has the same rig you have. years back he put the Vforce on, and likes it. Definitely a more distinguisable hit to it. I think it just made breaking traction a little easier and found the dual stage Boyesen reeds more to my liking. 100 dollars would work better elsewhere as far as I am concerned. Can't comment on the rad valve for that one, as I haven't tried it.

It seemsTryce Welch says he gets a noticealbe dynamometer gain off the Vforce on just about anything he has tried it on fyi. He tests them so I believe him. Probably depends on what you are looking for.

Our 2000 noticed a difference by going to the 01 cylinder and a bigger difference by raising compression. Vertex makes a piston that works well for that fyi. Your fuel may not like it though. Lots of other ways to get more compression of course.

If the bike already has other breathing mods like exhaust and filter, then skip the Boyesen reeds and get the V-Force Reeds. You will feel the difference in throttle response and low-midrange.

Well, I hope I turn out happy with my decision. I bought some pro series reeds and a Kevlar clutch kit so I will be busy Saturday.
