Hi fella's, This is my first post here but I think it's the place I need to be. I have had many, many bikes and have always worked on them myself. I have recently picked up a KYMCO 2004 Venox 250. This machines engine looks to be a twin of the VTR 250 / Magna 250 engine. I have purchased a 1989 VTR 250 engine with 12000k on it. Am trying to find out some of the similarities from guys, that might know more about them. I know the Venox is a five speed and the VTR is a six speed. Engine layout appears to be the same. I believe the engine might bolt right into my frame as is. Am interested in knowing what the horsepower and torque of the VTR was in 89. Am thinking I might try swapping out the engines just to see what I might gain in performance. My VTR engine is complete except, it is missing the carbs. My thinking is the the VTR might have had a more HP & highly tunes set of carbs. My stock horsepower on the Venox is 28 hp, at 11.5k I forget the torque at the moment. Your forum seems to have many more posts then some of the forums I have checked out and it would appear many more of you do much of your own work. This is exactly what I am looking for. If any of you out there can help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide. Look forward to swapping thought etc. with you. ... Hank G.
