SOURCE: big bore kit

The big bore kit is pretty easy. It is actually pretty basic. If you are buying a complete kit it should come with a spec sheet that will give you clearances and so forth. Make sure you gap the rings. I believe the gap should be .002" per inch of bore. If you are running a super hi-lift cam then you will want to check the piston to valve clearance and also the check for valve spring coil bind.
Good luck and let me know if you have any further questions.

No other gear set available to my knowledge. The correct set of gears should be able to handle an extra 50cc. The head gasket and cylinder gasket should also be the same. If they arn't, the larger gaskets would come with the kit.

I am thinking of fitting a big bore kit to my ybr125 what will be the benifits, is it a good idea

Mature rider possesses the wisdom to "look before he leaps" very commendable class is in session, there 3 ways to increase engine displacement:
1. Larger bore.
2. Longer stroke.
3. Combination of 1 and 2
Larger bore is the best way to increase displacement because it is bolt on horsepower the easiest and cheapest way to go with the least amount of added engine stress and maximum longevity.

Thinking about a rebuild

Now if you have determined that your engine is worn out, you must make some decisions. The question of whether or not an engine is worth rebuilding is largely a subjective matter and one of personal worth. Is the engine a popular one, or is it an obsolete model- Are parts available- Will it get acceptable gas mileage once it is rebuilt- Is the car it's being put into worth keeping- Would it be less expensive to buy a new engine, have your engine rebuilt by a pro, rebuild it yourself or buy a used engine from a salvage yard- Or would it be simpler and less expensive to buy another car- If you have considered all these matters, and have still decided to rebuild the engine, then it is time to decide how you will rebuild it.
The editors feel that most engine machining should be performed by a professional machine shop. Think of it as an assurance that the job has been done right the first time. There are many expensive and specialized tools required to perform such tasks as boring and honing an engine block or having a valve job done on a cylinder head. Even inspecting the parts requires expensive micrometers and gauges to properly measure wear and clearances. A machine shop can deliver to you clean, and ready to assemble parts, saving you time and aggravation. Your maximum savings will come from performing the removal, disassembly, assembly and installation of the engine and purchasing or renting only the tools required to perform these tasks.
A complete rebuild or overhaul of an engine involves replacing all of the moving parts (pistons, rods, crankshaft, camshaft, etc.) with new ones and machining the non-moving wearing surfaces of the block and heads. Unfortunately, this may not be cost effective. For instance, your crankshaft may have been damaged or worn, but it can be machined undersize for a minimal fee.
So although you can replace everything inside the engine, it is usually wiser to replace only those parts which are really needed, and, if possible, repair the more expensive ones. Later in this section, we will break the engine down into its two main components: the cylinder head and the engine block. We will discuss each component, and the recommended parts to replace during a rebuild on each.

How big can you bore a Lifan 200cc engine I want more power and speed so what big bore kits are available

Hi, Dylan that would depend on the availability of oversize pistons, traditional performance mods are:
1. Free flowing air cleaner.
2. Carburetor Jet Kit.
3. Performance camshaft
4. Performance exhaust system. For this situation, I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.

Hi I'm anthony I have a 2005 suzuki reno I think it's a grate car so I'd like to beef it up with a bigger motor what engine do u think would be best fitting for low budget rebuild?

I would put a 5.7 litre V8 Shelby Mustang engine into it. It would make it fly! Trouble is there would be nowhere for you to sit! This is a joke right :>) You can't put any other engine into that tiny car other than the one that came with it!

The only thing you can do is buy some performance pats for it, perhaps even go faster vinyl stripes.

    I want to be prepared to do an overhaul to the engine of my buick 2005 terraza. What are the parts I need to buy.

    Go to an auto parts store and request a full rebuild kit. Have you ever performed a rebuild on an engine? What are you going to do if the machine shop finds a bad crankshaft and two bad heads? Cheaper and less time consuming to find a low mileage engine.

    I have a klx 250s 2009 model and was thinking about getting a new needle and slide put in plus a 300 big bore kit will this give it more get up and go...

    The 300 kit should produce more power, and you may need to rejet the carby to match the 300 kit
    A good after market muffler also increases power
    A needle and slide will not produce more power, unless the current ones are very worn and supplying the incorrect mixture.
