Has there been any feedback on how well these kits stop or reduce frame cracking?  The biggest reason I don't ride a stock frame 250R anymore is the constant frame repair.  I would have to weld the frame after each race...that gets tiring.  I know there are no guarantees, just wanting some feedback.  Finding out about Pumashine has really got me wanting to put together another 250R to go XC racing with.

The replacement lower mounts are great. I would grind off the originals and install weld in the pumashine mounts regardless if the originals are still good. The new metal is thicker. Seeing that out frames are 20 something years old all of our lower motor mounts are ovaled to some degree.

My subframe was cracked and repaired by the previous owner. I also cracked the same repair. Cleaned up the area, welded in a pumashine subframe gusset and it has not given me a problem since. Same goes for the rear fender mount area.

Tony's gusset kits breath life back into out frames. The next best thing to a aftermarket frame is a well guesseted frame.

On top of all of this greatness offered, Tony shipped it out to Alaska and within a few days it arrived here! I can't wait to get her all welded up.

tony do you make the pieces for the front motor mounts on a 87-89 frames. Need to replace both of them on each side. If needed I will post pics of what I need.

You must be talking about this one. This took up many hours of R&D but could not match OEM. I have another one simialr that is available...gotta get the pic

This one does not locate on the frame as OEM does. You just bolt your motor inplace and pull these down to the frame and weld on. The others were not able to made out of thick material like OEM.And could never get the offset correct. These ones get the correct offset when you bolt them on.

Anyone welding these on as in the pic are retarded. The pic is to show they are OEM copies

Thank you for the high quality product!  I will post some pictures after I am done welding the guesset kit in place.  I was very pleased to see it wasn't just a laser or water table cut plate kit the bend on the shock tower reinforcement square tube was bent with knowledge of seam strength placement on a bend!

Thanks again for the great product!  I just ordered a front motor mount set from you Friday I should be getting my frame and other misc parts back from powder coating later this week.  I am so excited!
