    I ran a 2012 raptor quad carburetor on my TW 250 and is working well. I was able to build a carburetor boot to use the stock airbox.
    Do you know how much material you’ll need to mill out of the head to reduce your compression because of the amount of stroke?

    Well i didnt make it to the memorial ride but i did buy an oil cooler, haha
    I wasnt able to elarge both ports and since i already had the oversized exhaust valve, just 1mm oversize on the exhaust side
    Ronnydog, the piston is being custom made to achieve 10.5 to 1 compression with the mods that have been already done to the head and seeing how CT Racing has both the head and cylinder i can only assume the delay is from waiting for the piston, but it should deliver 10.5 to 1 comp when assembled
    In the meantime i just finished the dress up of the clarke xt225 4.1 gal tank, the red stripes are leds and the eyes of the skulls have red leds in them too, should look good installed

    Good question, the base and head gaskets might not be an off the shelf part number, and thats the last things i still have to get is a gasket and seal kit for the reassembly, Alan over at CT said my head was all done and will be back to me this week, the jug is bored and sleeved , but the other customer that was buying 2 of the custom pistons has backed out, leaving me buying all 4 or just not having a piston, so i guess i will have 3 spares lol
    So i been working on the wiring and graphics, also going to change out the turn signals, do a new tailight mount,and install the voyager pro gps, also making a new rear mount for the gas tank as the one supplied will not work

    Yes Alan at CT is very knowledgeable and mostly deals with raptor 250 quad motors, he has actually invited me down there to dyno this build once its done, im looking forward to the visit .
    Meanwhile the voyager pro mounting is 80% done with only the buddy tracker antenna and wheel sensor to be mounted with the magnetic bolt. Got a shorai 210amp lithium battery with charge/controller and will mount the controller under the left side cover so i dont have to remove the seat. Contactong Cometco on Monday about making a custom head gasket for this build.Also counting the days until the head jug and piston kits arrive, but getting excited about the finished product, hopefully i can make the Pinenuts ride in Nevada and head to Moab from there at months end ,

    Ran into an issue i didnt foresee, the stock head gasket may not work, i am going to try to contact gasket makers to see what my options are ,alsp looking to see if yamaha ever used this head on a 76mm bore so i can just order one ,im thinking with 11 to 1 cr i xant have a hokey head gasket. Also still have to fab up a spacer for the tranny, but im happy to be down to just a few details and maybe a week and a half until rebuilding begins in earnest by boring the case to accept the new cylinder
