Wondering if anyone knows anything about big bore kits for the 85-86 quadracer. I have an 86 and am looking for all the power I can get. I am getting ready to start a slow but complete rebuild. If anyone knows anything just let me know.
Thanks for the help. I will get ahold of my local shop then. I just hate going through them because they are so slow and most of the time can't get you the right parts the first time. I will let you know what I find out.
If you can find one let me know, I would be very interested in knowing about them. The 85-86 year LT is a very strange cylinder in the fact that it is a piston port intake with a case reed assist. Also, I don't believe that the case reed will allow that large of a bore size. They had a problem with skirts breaking. As far as an aftermarket cylinder like a Pro-X, they make 310s and 330s for a lot of bikes and ATV's but they don't make one for your application. LA Sleeve used to have a 290 big bore but the 2003 catalog no longer lists that application, only the .080" over.
Thanks for the help. My local shop dosen't know what the hell they are doing. At least I found this great site that offers better info than them. Let me know what you find out. I won't be ready or have the money for the job for about 2-3 months.
I found out if I put a big bore kit in I will be barking up the wrong tree. It will make my bottom end like butter. I will spend more time rebuilding than I will riding. I think I will just keep it the way it is and try to get ahold of a honda 250r. Oh well. It was worth a shot. :sad:
Your wrong about gettin a honda 250r if you want more speed...the LT is faster..do everything to an engine BUT a kit...find a 310 maybe. But if you want more bottom end, gear it lower..thats why the hondas seemed to have more power...there geared low.. Gear yours lower and youll be fine
