    FL-250 RPM

    Any idea of where peak power is on a fl-250. Dg pipe, 9.5:1 compression, 34mm carb. ported head. Turing about 7800 now but feels like it's not getting on the pipe. I am thinking 8800-9000? Anyone have a dyno sheet of a modded fl-250? Thanks.

    Welcome to the FL250 forum. I don't have a dyno sheet, but your dead on for RPM's. When I was racing mine in the late 80's, I was getting high 10,000 RPM's.

    What did you do for the head porting? I used to polish my exhaust port and rough up the intake. I also polished the dome of the cylinder head.

    The idea of roughing the intake is to help atomize the fuel.

    New engine build?
    If it's a newly ported setup, the tuning will be different - plug chop time.

    Ported head? Or polished dome and ported cylinder?

    Was it running better at an earlier time?

    What's your compression? Not the 9.5:1 ratio, but the actual compression pressure reading (you'll need a gauge).

    We did the same thing with the jet ski engines - rough paper the intake and polish the exhaust port and header until they shined. Extrude-Hone was a great process back then. Polished the crank and the inside of the cases too.
