I am looking for a good 265PV from either esr or ct. Anyone got one
I might can help you out if your looking a new one.
Might be I could get one from CT, but will take some talking to Allen.

Just last week I had asked him about those & said he would or could build a few but didnt want to go back into producing them again.
ESR has none either & doughtfull they could be talked into bringing them back.

Niel,

Do you have any info on the actual cylinders? How is it that CT or ESR get them ? Do they cast them themselves like duncan or do they buy them from Pro-X (LA sleeve). Is there any way to re-sleeve a 310?

I just bought a used nikasil 250 Pro-x Powervalve and I know it can be bored and re-sleeved or Nikasiled to a 265.

LRD and FTZ still advertise the 265 - don't they all come from the same place?

Last info I was looking for was reasoning behind getting a 265 vs 310. I didn't want a 310 because for woods riding/racing it is slightly too powerful and causes too much wheelspin - Am I wrong in this assumption?

I think that ESR and CT get the cylinders from L.A. Sleeve. They just got away from the 250s and 265s because there isn't much demand for them anymore. Most guys still racing the R are not limited on displacement so most of them just GO BIG.

That is right, reguardless of who is marketing them, LA Sleeve is where the machined cylinders & heads come from.
CP Industrys, who the cylinder & head castings are done by.

All Pro-x cylinders can be re-sleeved, that is unless something is wrong with the casting.
A 250 bore cylinder could become a 265, just a matter of boring & installing a 265 sleeve.
A Pro-x cylinder can be one size & then be taken up to the next size if the machining on the casting is right, say like a 310cc sleeved up to a 330cc, BUT, machining has got to be right for it to work.

If you talk to him, would you mind asking how much it would cost, and when he could make it. I wouldn't need it to soon but if its gona cost me an arm and a leg i might just go big bore like the other guys said.

Thats just like they, CT or ESR are thinking, if your getting a new cylinder kit & its going to cost just about the same what ever size cc, why not just go big bore.

Only reason for a 265cc would be if you intended to run the R in a 265 class.
Dont know about MX, but in EDT, a 265/450 A, B & C class is still offered to run the R in.
My son ran the 265/450 A class last season locally under ATVA rules, winning of course, so at least we still can run them around here.

So would it be worth my while to get a PV or just get a 265. Would the PV help me that much vs. just a cylinder. I need to keep into consideration that i don't have a ton of money, but if the powervalve will help alot. then i geuss i could afford to not eat for a while LOL.JK
