On this week’s Two-Stroke Tuesday we give you a behind the scenes look at our 2002 CR250R project with the crew at Faster USA going on right now. Most of the major work is done and now all the pieces of the puzzle can start going back together. We kept the Honda theme going in 2-Stroke Theater with four project bikes and we have a brand new product from MSV Racing featured in this week’s 2-Stroke Hardware. Don’t miss the exclusive link to the full story on our CR125 Dream build at the bottom of this post!
A cone pipe and carbon fiber silencer just makes things look cooler! The Scalvini exhaust also adds some performance benefits.
The suspension got some coating love and was rebuilt internally by the crew at Ride jbi.
The frame has gone through a few different cleaning processes. In person this has a flat matte finish with clear Cerakote for protection.
The subframe has the same finish at the main frame.
The carburetor and other parts were cleaned up using a VH800 Vapor Blasting machine from Vapor Honing Technologies.
The master cylinders and mounting brackets got some Cerakote attention.
The swingarm will match the rest of the frame with a matte finish.
The engine was Vapor blasted before being completely rebuilt using a Garage Buddy kit from Wiseco. We also added some Cerakote, a full Rekluse clutch and a Nickel Wùrks bolt kit from Spec Bolts for some added bling.
Faster USA billet aluminum hubs anodized red will be the heart of our new wheel set.
Black Excel Takasago rims will add some flavor to the red hubs.
Calipers and headstay brackets got a Cerakote finish as well.
A complete 2-Stroke engine rebuild kit all in one box from Wiseco.
Pro X components will be a big part of our Faster USA project.
Here is another look at the engine just from a different angle. Its amazing what a difference our Vapor Blasting machine from Vapor Honing Technologies and some Nickel Wùrks bolts from Spec Bolts can do.
MSV WATER PUMP IMPELLER
MSV Racing combined their OptiFlo CR “phi” Impeller to fit Kawasaki two and four-stroke engines plus the Suzuki RMZ250, the result was an impeller that offers more coolant flow, enhanced cooling, and minimum power absorption.
