SEPTEMBER VACATION

I will close my shop for the month of September for vacation. Normally September is one of the slowest months and with so many great motorcycle events like the AMA Outdoor Nationals, MX DES NATIONS, AIM Expo, and the Barber AHRMA race, there's no time to work, just time to play.

August 5th is the cut-off date to get your cylinders in for service. After that, any inbound orders will be stored until October 1 when I re-open my shop.

500 2-Strokes

 2-STROKE PORTING PACKAGES

All 2-stroke porting packages include complete porting, not the fake fluffy crap that most In and Out Porting and big time SoCal hop up shops offer. All of these porting packages include the following; disassembly and cleaning of all the top end components, complete porting and polishing, cylinder head machining, base machining, diamond honing, baking soda blasting, powervalve service or epoxy-filling, powervalve assembly and timing of applicable models.

 250-550cc BIG BIKES $225

HONDA CR500 PORTING $225

CR500

In the glory years of the 500cc Grand Prixs in Europe throughout the mid-1980s and 90s, Eric’s CR500 tuned Hondas were the boss ride. Legends like Jorgen Nilsson and Leif Persson of Sweden, Rob Herring and Mark Eastwood of England, Jacky Vimond of France, and Peter Dirkx of Belgium owned the first turn at the GPs and turned the ultra-expensive HRC Factory bikes into insignificant bridesmaids. At the 1992 USGP at Glen Helen, Swedish champion Jorgen Nilsson holeshot the field in both motos.

In modern days the Service Honda CR500AF’s have reveled in the praise of American dirt bike magazines for the last 12 years. Eric offers porting through Service Honda and in 2006 Dirt Rider magazine ran an Internet Bike Shootout and www.dirtrider.net teamed with Service Honda. DR’s test riders demanded that a manual clutch be installed on the bike because the powerband was so smooth they thought the Rekluse auto clutch was slipping. The testers praised the porting and powerband with the smooth powerband with extra revs on top. You can choose the type of powerband and fuel type. Eric builds a lot of CR500s for mx, enduro, desert, hill-climb, dirt track, and ice-supermoto and oval racing.

The porting package on the CR500 includes cylinder porting, base machining, head work, manifold matching and polishing, epoxy porting, soda-blast cleaning, and diamond honing to the next oversize if needed for $200 Additional parts options include your choice of pistons from Wiseco Pro-Lite, Vertex cast&coated, Pro-X, and Wossner piston.


Yamaha Porting for Vintage YZ & IT465, 490, & WR500 $185

Starting with the first YZ250A in 1974, Eric tuned and raced YZ’s for years, In 1980 he teamed with Troy Bradshaw and hit the nationals. Troy pulled some awesome starts and great placings in the Trans-Am series and soon Team Keystone Yamaha’s suported Eric’s Flow-Ported YZ cylinders. In 1981 Keystone’s Jeff Hicks placed second to Danny “Magoo” Chandler in the Trans Am series. Magoo was also sponsored by Eric on a RM125 in the nationals that year. That series launched Jeff Hick’s career as a factory sponsored Team Yamaha rider and Magoo as one of the most fabled factory Honda riders of the 20th century.
 

In 1984 Troy Bradshaw made history at Loretta Lynn’s by winning the Open Class championship besting the factory sponsored riders from Yamaha and Kawasaki. The porting, cylinder head and carb tuning specs developed in that era can help your YZ run much better and be less sensitive to fuel quality and jetting.

Our comprehensive service package includes center-mandrel machining of all the gasket surfaces of the cylinder and head, complete porting and polishing of the exhaust port, epoxy-filling of casting flaws on applicable models, intake boost-ports bored and polished, head modifications, and diamond-honing.

Kawasaki KX500

Eric was the chief engine builder for TUF Racing in the heyday of AMA Open Class racing.

The complete porting package includes head mods and powervalve service for $225. The 525cc big bore kit with porting, replating, Wiseco Pro-Lite piston and gaskets is $660 and crankshaft stroking, rebuilding, and welding is $475 with a Hot Rod kit.
