Unlock your bike's hidden potential with the power producing and durable Cylinder Works big bore kit.

O.E.M. appearing +1 mm to +4 mm big bore cylinder kit, a hand-matched, forged Vertex big bore piston and top-end gasket kit. These kits offer you an affordable way to increase horsepower and engine displacement without giving your secret away to your competition.

  • Cylinder - New, not remanufactured, cast aluminum nickel silicon carbide (NSC) electroplated big bore cylinder that appears just like an O.E. cylinder. NSC is a composite of a nickel and silicon carbide, providing an excellent wear resistant surface with oil retention capabilities. Cylinders are then diamond honed to the exact bore dimension and proper surface finish to ensure the proper ring seal and oil retention.
  • Vertex Big Bore Piston - To handle the internal pressures of a four-stroke engine, Vertex's big bore four-stroke pistons are forged from the highest quality 2618 aluminum alloy for superior strength and durability. Vertex uses unique piston profiles and compression ratios, offered in A, B, C and D sizes, to maximize power and performance while reducing blow-by and oil consumption. Each Vertex piston is then hand matched to fit each Cylinder Works cylinder perfectly.
  • Gasket Kits - These kits contain the necessary gaskets to rebuild your top end. Kits include head, base, exhaust gaskets, and O-rings necessary when removing the cylinder and head during routine maintenance.
  • Kit includes: Big bore cylinder, Vertex piston, piston rings, piston pin, circlips, gasket kit.
  • Note: To achieve optimum performance, re-jet the carburetor with the available jet kits (sold separately) or a fuel-injection fuel management controller.

Excellant Kit

I own a motorsports repair shop,customer brought a TRX-450 in that needed a crankshaft and top-end. Thanks to Motosport we were able to rebuild the motor with better parts than stock and save some money at the same time. We have a test track here and before the customer picks up his machine we like to have him or her take a few laps. When they get off their machine and there is a smile from ear to ear you know they are pretty happy.This particular unit the customer was realy impressed. The big bore kit realy woke up the TRX. Thanks Motosport

Problem purchase

Purchased this kit for my 2006 YZ 250F and it took two tries to get a piston and ring combination that fit (rings would not fit in the grooves) finally sent me a piston that worked but it did not have the moly coating. Excellent power gains unfortunately it is on its 4th head gasket due to a poor alingment with the cylinder head allowing the gasket to hang over the combustion chamber. this was possibly the worst purchase I ever made and nobody is willing to stand behind the product, better off buying a Athena kit.

I installed this on my 06 yz450f it looks just like the OEM cylinder i did not install the piston instead i ordered a high compression piston. This bike runs like i added another 10 HP. I have been riding it for 3 months with no problems. hill climbing you can't run out of power. power is strong all the way through i would recommend this product.

It's your call

Had some prblms with it.. to start off i have built over 15 yfz motors with no prblms so it wasn't me.. but back to the product. First problem I had was the piston pin clip came out and put a gouge in the cylinder so i went and got another cylinder and rings and clips and maybe had 10 hours on it and I broke a valve which went through my piston and as i tore it all apart again I also noticed that the inside of the cylinder had a crack in it. It could have been from the valve but i dont think so because the valve went through the piston and ive read about the cylinders cracking on other people too. so just thought I'd say if you wanna risk it go for it had lots of power but if you want something that will last i would go OEM. thats where I'm headed now.

Very nice

Quality construction, made a huge difference in power. probably the most cost effective way to mod a 250f. I did have to rejet with a JD jet kit after i installed this; before it really ran to its potential. Was popping on decel and throttle response was not as crisp. after the bike was rejetted it is a monster.

On the 2004-2009 Honda CRF250R the 256CC kit would not require any modifications. However the 269cc +3mm kit would require slight case modifications.

High compression kit?
Can you buy a high compression kit to go into this big-bore kit so that I could have a 270cc high compression piston?

Unfortunately Cylinder Works only offers big bore cylinder kits with standard compression, they do this to help retain reliability.

Is there more to know about how long this would last?
Is there an estimated time that this would last you? Or is that more dependent on how you ride the bike?
Expert MotoSport Staff

MotoSportExpert
There are too many variables to say how long it would last. That would be determined on how the bike was ridden, maintained and serviced as well as riding conditions.

Do the valves need to be replaced with big bore kit?
Im thinking about purchasing this for my 06 Yz450f and i am wondering if i will have to replace my valves? Is there anything else besides rejetting that needs to be done or is this a bolt on rejet and have a blast kind of kit?

2012 CRF250R durability?
How much stress will the 270 kit put on the rest of my motor? I know it will add a bit more,but will I have to worry about engine parts wearing out soon?
Expert MotoSport Staff

MotoSportExpert
That is hard to say since there are so many other variables that go into engine wear and life. Generally High Performance Big Bore motors do wear faster and are less reliable.

Why is this kit lower compression than oem 2008 kx250f?
Stock 2008 kx250f has 13.5:1 compression ratio. This kit is drops compression to 12.6:1. On stock bore this compression drop would equate to .7 to .8 horsepower loss. This loss would also show up on the big bore kit as well. Why would cylinder works spec a piston with lower compression?

Cylinder Works Big Bore Kit are specifically designed for each machine to maximize Horsepower and reliability. A big bore kit is not about Peak HP but more low end usable power on your 2008 kx250f Kawasaki.

The internal combustion engine is very simply put a basic air pump. The more air/fuel you and intake and exhaust from the motor, the more power you will make. HP gains are very subjective to gauge on any one or combination of performance parts. Things like the age of the motor, the tune of the air fuel ratio, the altitude, etc will all have an effect on PEAK HP numbers. Many performance products will not increase your PEAK HP, but rather move the HP to a different RPM range than the stock motor.

What fuel should I use with this kit?
My bike is a 2002 crf450 I have a cylinder works big bore kit , stage2 hot cam , Tokyo mods carb , hot rods crank and the head has been ported . I hill climb , trail ride and sometimes drag race. I currently use VP110 , is this fuel a good choice? Thanks for your time

MotoSportExpert
For any 4 stroke motor that is not running incredibly high compression you will actually not want to run anything over 100 octane. With fuel over 100 octane it will burn too slow and too cool, and you can actually start to lose power. The VP110 is a great option for fuel, but for your application i would mix it 50/50 with a premium pump fuel. The best option would be if you can utilize a non-ethanol pump fuel if available in your area. With mixing the 110 with a premium fuel, it will give the fuel some consistency that can be lacking in the fuel found at the pump. For all intents and purposes though, this kit would run fine on premium pump gas alone with the correct jetting.

Does this kit need additional tuning for a ltr450, I have a cherrybomb right now ?
MotoSport Staff

MotoSportExpert
This kit will require more tuning capability than what the cherrybomb provides on the LTR450's. If you go with a Power Commander you will be able to get that tuned and running correctly with the big bore kit.
