I wonder if he re worked the four stroke suspension for the two stroke motor?

Also the intake looks like its taking a couple crazy bends, I wonder how the airbox is attached and if it rubs the shock at all...the pipe and motor looks a little high and straight up and down. The agle of the engine may or may not effect handling to a certain degree ?

Dont think the engine would effect it. remember hwo much less weight is their. The 4 stroke has a big heavey head way up their.

this bike is just a short ferry ride away. if i wasnt in school..and didnt just re-build my cr250 i think i would be all over this.

The way the motor is clocked affect the rear suspension primarily.

 

I'm in the middle of a build with a New 09 crf250 frame with a similar but a bit better motor. It's been a slow process with many other project in front of it.......

Yes the way the motor is "clocked" its always something i think about now that iv done a couple motor swaps... Iv noticed most modern bikes have the motor rotated forward for improved handeling... Iv seen relocating motor mounts available for brand new kawies too...

But yeah the forks are similar but the rear shock has a heavier spring and rebound valving to compensate for the four stroke characteristics and extra weight.. Crf250 5.3 vs CR250 4.9 rear spring

I was able to get ahold of the guy and he had custom suspension for his weight and valved for single track riding. but now swapped back out all stock suspension and parts to sell it... Nice guy, said he spent about $1000 doing the swap.. Mostly by paying the shop for fab work I guess. Also said hed do $2600 shipped to California! Not a bad price at all for the bike...

      Kicking around the idea of selling my CR250. I have other bikes and never get a chance to ride this one.

      This is a well-maintained bike with tons of aftermarket parts. It's set up primarily for woods/single-track riding, but will still do just fine on an MX track.

      Engine:
      -Fresh Pro-X top end(<1 hour)
      -FMF Gnarly pipe & FMF Shorty silencer(<1 hour on fresh packing)
      -PWK Air-Striker Carburetor(bought new from JD Jetting last year)
      -Steahy 10oz. Flywheel Weight
      -Boyesen Rad Valve with Carbon-fiber reeds
      -TwinAir air filter

      Misc:
      -Excel Pro-Series Wheels(19"/21")
      -Brand-new Shinko tires(546 Front, 505 Cheater Rear not mounted yet) w/ Heavy-duty tubes
      -Works Connection Radiator Guards
      -Skid Plate
      -FMF Factory 909 Handlebars
      -Polished Frame
      -Sunstar 13/51 Steel Sprockets(new in box)

      I'm sure I'm missing a few odds and ends. Comes with a Bill of Sale only. (708)287-1998 - Dave

      Hello,
      I could not seem to find a similar thread so if one exists I apologize. I have an 02 cr250r with an 01 motor. I need to buy a new silencer with a spark arrestor because the current one does not have one. I am not sure if the owner before me used an 01 or 02 silencer because I have read the frame had significant changes from 01 to 02. Any thoughts? Thanks!

      I want to restore a 1996 cr80 that doesn’t have any graphics and absolutely love the 1994 cr125r tank shroud graphics, I can’t seem to find anything that fits the cr80 with those graphics. I found one last week but lost the page and couldn’t track it down again, do the cr125r graphics fit the cr80 tank shrouds? or does anyone know where someone could make them for cheap or know about any in Australia

      Hey guys,
       
      Could someone please explain the numbers on a needle jet for a mikuni carb?  I'm currently running a 38-73 needle but a lot of the people I talk to say I would be happier running a 38-70 needle.  I don't have a problem with going with what other recommend but I would like to understand the numbering for the needles first.  I understand the nozzle sizes, main jet and pilot jet it's just this damn needle thingamobob
       
      Thanks a lot
