45-50hp sounds like way too much to me for only a 250.

The only way you could possibly get that much out of a 250 is with lots of racing stuff. you could get around 20-30 easy.

20-30 sounds a lot more believable to me.

Any modern performance liquid cooled 250 2 stroke moto-cross engine will put out AT LEAST 40hp stock, My 1983 RM125 was rated 30hp stock. with a 250, 50hp is not far off with some modifications.

Mike, you may be thinking of the early Rm370 or RM400. They started making RM's in 75', and the first few 250s were only rated at 35hp stock, when they started using L/C engines in 81' or 82' the HP hopped up to around 40. 55hp from a stock air cooled 250 2 stroke would be ALOT.

Run a CVT on the pb engine, if you're planning on using it. A CVT will give you plenty of torque to move that big rear wheel.
