2 stroke motor work

Hey, I wasn't sure where else to ask for help, so I brought it to you experts. Where in Houston can I get 2 stroke motor work done? I recently picked up a project quad, a trx 250r, and want to get the motor freshened up. Right now I just need a new top end, so a bore, hone and piston kit. But later I want to Do somemore work to it. I like to keep my business local and support local shops, but I am not sure who all they are.

Thanks for the help.

You can PM me if you would prefer to give me your personal opinions.

Do you do your own work? as in taking it apart and putting it back together? or are you just wanting to drop the quad off somewhere and them do everything?

If you do your own work just the top end apart and if everything looks decent just order the next size up piton kit and a top end gasket kit. Take the jug and piston kit to a reputable machine shop and they will bore/hone it for that piston.

I would also recommend a carb kit, or if you want to wake it up a bit a carb kit+jet kit, exhaust, and filter. Depending on how much you want out of it you could also have it ported and put some after market reeds in it while it is apart. Also look at the reeds while it is apart.

Just remember that 2 strokes are simple and easy to work on.

I have it all torn apart right now. I have mic'd it and know where i am on bores and what size piston i need to go to. I just want to take it to a reputable shop that messes with these types of engines. There is alot that can be done to get more out of this engine and those folks would know better how to do that. Also, it may need to be re-sleeved, if not this time, especially next and i want to have a good contact to go to for that. Plus, the porting and port timing needs to be done by someone that knows.

I already have an exhaust and intake system, and the carb is going to be rebuilt or replaced and rejetted.

YES. Definitely send the jug off to get ported. I know for one of my Shee's i sent the jugs to F.A.S.T. racing (http://www.farmandsandtoys.com/index.asp) and couldn't be happier. My play/dune port screams on the mid/top end and still has a little low end power left. They came highly recommended on the forums.
Also might want to look for a 250r forum. Im sure the guys over there could give you some good advice.
