As fate would have it, Justin had a 2003 KX250 two stroke that he was just starting to assemble and it didn’t take much deliberation for us to come to the conclusion that racing a two stroke sounded like a lot of fun. Justin delivered the bike to Precision Concepts and a couple weeks later we had a race bike. We couldn’t wait to start burning laps on it.

  • Rebuilding the Honda XR650R Motorcycle Cylinder and Head

    4WD Mechanix Magazine's Honda XR650R motorcycle came with very low hours on the bike.

Sleeve Company for its Moly 2000 iron/chrome-moly alloy cylinder sleeve and cylinder head rebuilding [HD Video].
