I'm getting ready to build an RS-80, or 85. I can get an 02 CR-80 motor for $875 or an 03 CR-85 motor for $1200, both new. Does anyone know if the CR-85 motor would acutally be worth the extra money or should I just by the 02 motor and bore it up when it is time for the first rebuild???

Not positive if the trannies are the same, but if they are I'd go with the '02. I've seen a few companies offering the 80 to 85 kits, so bumping later it up won't be a problem.

I would think the cost savings make the '02 a better deal.
It's an 83cc anyway for '02 so for 2cc I wouldn't spend the buck-os

Also, the cylinders are Nikasil-plated, thats $150 plus $40 to bore plus cost of piston etc. Keep that in mind.
