BBR Motorsports, Inc started in the Brown Brothers’ Parents’ garage around 1996 with the simple goal of making cool motorcycle parts.
BBR has come a long way, from building XR100 swingarms in their parents’ garage, to becoming the winningest company in the history of the MinMoto SX.
Over the years, BBR has been consulted by OEM motorcycle manufacturers, aftermarket motorcycle parts companies, bicycle manufacturers, tech publications, and even CAD/CAM software developers.
BBR custom motorcycles and performance parts have been featured in hundreds of publications around the world.
Based in Enumclaw WA, BBR Motorsports continues to design and produce quality, high performance products for off-road playbikes.
BBR Products can be purchased directly or through your local dealer.
Dealers can purchase BBR products through the premier wholesale powersports distributors in the United States.
Over the years BBR has been lucky to work with outstanding employees and many of our heroes in the powersports industry.
Below you’ll find pictures of many of the past and present employees and friends of BBR.
Brands BBR Motorsports
Lots of companies have come and gone in the playbike world. This page lists many of the common brands that have built playbike/pitbike products. We’ve tried to include any information available on these companies and show a few images to help you identify your part.
Look through the logo images and companies below to see if you can find something similar to the part you are searching for info on.
Most genuine BBR products will have BBR cast, machined, imprinted, or decal-ed on them. To identify an out-of-production BBR Product, check out our BBR Product Identification page. Everything that BBR currently sells is available on our Products page.
NOTE: We do not sell these products, have no replacement parts for these products, and have no other information available than what is shown here. We provide this information as a service to orphaned product owners trying to find information on products that we did not produce, sell, install, or service.
If you call or e-mail BBR, with questions about these companies/products we will most likely refer you back to this page. You may find further information searching on the forum Planet Minis or posting a question over there.

BBR Motorsports, Inc – Products
By far, the vast majority of tech questions we get are for products we didn’t make and have no experience with. We really have no way of knowing if our bore kit will work with your Keweseki motorcycle. The first rule of motorcycles is that there are no standards.
So, don’t expect our jetting specs to work with whatever knock-off carb you bought on-the-cheap. You can’t (easily) interchange parts between brands and often not even between different models of the same brand bike (or different years).
The exceptions are tires, chains, grips, etc. Even grips are tough when talking about the 50cc bikes which generally use 3/4″ handlebars where most all other motorcycles (and bicycles) use 7/8″ bars. That’s why we built our Handlebar Kits to begin with.
Everything needs to change to get to normal 7/8″ handlebars.
This lack of interchangeability with motorcycle parts is difficult for some customers to understand. If you grew up racing BMX in the ’70’s or ’80’s you may expect simple things like throttle cables to be universal. They are not. Unfortunately, in the motorcycle world almost nothing is “universal”.
Most true BBR products have the “BBR” logo engraved, cast, laser etched, or decal-ed directly on the part.
So, while some people may feel like “BBR” has become the generic name for play-bike parts (like BAND-AID®, Kleenex®, WD-40®, or ChapStick®), we really can’t help you with something we didn’t make.
Just because the classified ad or auction listing had “BBR” somewhere in it, don’t expect us to know everything about your bike. In general, we build bolt-on performance parts for Japanese motorcycles.
Don’t be mad at us when we don’t make parts to fit your Chinese knock-off bike. Even if the guy at the auto-parts/sporting goods/hardware store told you it takes the same parts as some Japanese bike – it almost certainly does not. We’ve also put together a little Brand Identification web page to help you find info on non-BBR products commonly found on pitbikes and playbikes
Customers often expect us to be experts on bikes and parts that we’ve never seen or owned. While we like to be helpful, keep in mind, that if you purchased some no-name part from an auction site, just to save a few bucks, we have no real incentive to help you. We’re one of the few play-bike guys (left) that answer our phones.
But, if the company that made your part (“made” is a pretty generous term for a guy in his garage buying parts off of a Chinese website. “Company” is pretty generous too…) can’t help you with jetting, don’t expect us to. That carb, that you got the awesome deal on, may not be such a great deal if you can’t figure out jetting that works with your bike.
Make certain that you include your name and address so we can mail your stickers to you. What is a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope?
Typically, we will send you 1 or 2 small BBR decals. If you want all the cool BBR decals, check out our Decal Kit for $19.95
HOW DO I PLACE AN ORDER ON-LINE?
BBR is able to take your order on-line via Email or fax, but prefers to take orders by phone. We have knowledgeable and friendly staff on hand to help you with any questions or concerns with your order. (253) 631-8233
HOW MUCH IS THE MOTOR-MOUNT KIT TO PUT MY CRF/XR75/80/100/TTR125 ENGINE INTO A CR80/85?
Unfortunately, there is NOT a $49 motor-mount kit available to do this conversion. The CR80 frame must be modified extensively; almost every tube must be cut off and re-welded while the frame is on a jig. The exhaust system must be handmade for each different year bike, and extensive modifications to the airbox, airboot, intake manifold, motor-mount plates, kickstarter, foot peg mounts, brake pedal, etc. are required. BBR builds a complete aluminum frame kit that puts everything in the exact right spot. We also will build a complete aluminum framed custom bike, ready to ride, starting at $8,500.
WHAT PARTS DO YOU MAKE FOR THE XR200?
BBR currently only has the aluminum frame kit to adapt the XR200 motor to the CR80/85 chassis components (Frame Kit). This is the only product we make related to the XR200.
WHAT PARTS DO YOU MAKE FOR THE TT-R 225 AND TT-R 250?
BBR does not currently make any parts for the TT-R 225 or TT-R 250. Powroll may have some motor parts available for the TT-R 225/250.
HOW DO I JET MY BIKE?
Every bike requires a different jetting spec that depends on the weather, location, type of gas, engine, carb, pipe, cam, riding ability, etc.. A good starting point on most 4-strokes (if you are adding a pipe, cam, etc.) would be five to ten sizes bigger on the main jet. Click here for more!
CAN YOU PUT MOTOR X INTO CHASSIS Y?
We get this question several times a day. Someone has a favorite motor that they would like stuffed into the current magazine favorite bike. Or they got a good deal on something that was wrecked/motor gone/etc. We probably could, but the cost wouldn’t be justified. If you take an old motor and put it into an old chassis (paying thousands of dollars to do it), you still have an old bike. In addition, we specialize in aluminum chassis design. We no longer build or modify any frames made of steel. Please understand that there are no standards in the motorcycle world. Unlike bicycles, every manufacturer chooses how to make a part and if they happen to be the same as another motorcycle, it is dumb luck. Some of the only exceptions are tires, handlebars, and chains. Motors do NOT interchange, suspension does NOT interchange, and even wheels do not interchange between brands (and often not even between different models of the same brand). If you are a good DIY fabricator, this is no big deal. If you want to pay somebody to do it, it will be expensive.
While we’re on the subject, NEVER EVER weld on an aluminum motorcycle frame. Even if your buddy is an “awesome” welder, you will have to have the frame heat-treated and/or aged to ever make it as strong as it was before you welded it. Once you heat aluminum (to weld or form it) it has to be heat treated to be strong enough to ride it again. If your welding shop tells you not to worry about it, RUN AWAY QUICKLY and find a shop that understands something about aluminum.
HOW DO I GET SPONSORED BY BBR? ( I got 3rd place on our local track first time riding…if I had a BBR bike I could have won)
BBR currently does not have an amateur sponsorship program. BBR does have a race team which consists of national level pros and test riders plus full time in-house test riders. BBR would love to give away all of their products so everyone could enjoy them, but…
CAN YOU PUT YZ FORKS ON MY TTR?
Yes, we can. The complete forks from the YZ runs about $1,500 in parts and $500 in labor to install the YZ forks. But then you need a shock ($550) and swingarm ($399) to even the ride out. To add a rear disc cost as much as $2,000 in parts and labor. See the TT-R125 FAQ for the full story
DO I HAVE TO PAY SHIPPING?
DO YOU HAVE A DISC BRAKE KIT FOR THE TTR125/CRF100F/XR100/XR200?
Because no aftermarket disc brakes exist for dirt bikes, adding a disc brake to a bike that didn’t have it is very expensive. It usually requires welding, fabricating and a lot of expensive OEM parts from some similar bike that does have disc brakes. BBR can install disc brakes on your bike, but it can run as much as $2,000 in parts and $1,500 in labor, depending on the bike, year, etc., etc.. This covers extensive modifications to the frame, swingarm, hubs, forks, etc. Do it yourselfers do this all the time using parts from used bikes. Since it is labor intensive, it costs a lot to pay us to do it. The better way is to step up to a chassis that already has great brakes (and suspension) like the CR80/85 components that we use with our aluminum frame kit.
DO PEOPLE ACTUALLY SPEND THIS MUCH MONEY ON THEIR BIKES?
BBR hand builds about 100+ complete bikes a year and fabricates thousands of in-house parts as well, shipping to all corners of the world. BBR builds proto-type bikes and parts for all of the major manufacturers. BBR is the only company making complete custom dirt bikes to order, so the demand is extremely high.
