I'm FINALLY in the (CRF250R/X) Club Too!!

Hey Guys,



I LOVE my New Bike, my wife said I'd marry it if I could...


...I couldn't argue with her on that one!

Here's my 'dumb' question, what the heck is this:


It came with the bike, but I'm not sure what it is :)

I have gotten a LOT OF GOOD TIPS reading this forum, as a result I am planning on doing the following:

1. Liberal application of Throttle when breaking-in.

2. HP4M oil for Motor (after break-in)

3. HP4 oil for Tranny

4. Remove air-filter screen and use Twin-Air backfire

5. Check Valves after break-in

6. Check Spokes often.

I'm not much on Jetting... I'm at sea-level in CA & have seen reports that the stock bike is a little rich. So, I am hoping that removing the air-filter screen will make it run just right. I'll wait 'till after break-in though. Any cautionary words?

I'm waiting for a magazine shootout on aftermarket pipes. Side-by-side comparison seems the only way to tell the difference between pipes.

Thanks Guys! See you on the Track!!!

That's to get the needle out of the carb.

Wait until you ride it is probably better than the wife. The tool is a jetting tool. I rode my bike 8 hrs so far in Ohio. It is the best bike I ever owned. I reed the forums dailey to keep up with whats going on. There are some real experienced people and pro riders in here to answer questions. Have fun on the new bike did you buy it from out of the area and how did that go I almost did that.

I'll post my Purchase Details in the Cheapest Place To Buy (CRF250) thread shortly.

The brief answer is I got if for $5574 delivered price from GenerationMX. They have really good prices on parts too!

Please share your experience with GenerationMX. Where are they located?

Dude, rolling the CRF in next to the TV is pretty close to as good as it gets. :D I guess if you could pull the bike, tv and your favorite chair into a strip club you would have it all. :)

You can buy them for $5426.00 In Roseville Ca so why order from Gen X?

Okay, I posted my experience with GenerationMX in the Cheapest Place To Buy (CRF250) thread.

Feel free to ask me any other questions :)

Ooops, ... well, there's always '05 :)

Are you talking Roseville Cycle Center ?

Did you get it for $5426 OTD? Including Taxes and Registration? If so, That's DAMN GOOD!

Hey Guys,




my wife was looking over my shoulder at your pictures and she thinks that you should sell the bike and buy your wife a new kitchen floor. i argued with her but she was adamant that true happiness arrives through the right kitchen.

Checked yesterday @ Roseville. $5999 OTD. Tag shows $300 more, but they will still honor the 'ad price' from December. How nice of them.

      I recently put a newer style fender and plate on my 2007 crf250r. I just had to drill a couple holes in the fender and I used some washer on the back bolts to angle the fender up a bit. Since the original plate mounted with one bolt in the center and the newer styles mount with two bolts, I had to make a custom bracket. Message me if you need dimensions for this bracket. New style is in my cover photo, stock is in my profile picture.

      So I can get a 1986 cr250 motor for a good price and I also know a guy that has a 2005 crf250r that needs work. I have the idea of just swapping motors. Would this motor fit in the newer frame?

      Jeremy Martin Leads the Charge for Wiseco Riders at Daytona Supercross
      Christian Craig Turns in Career Best in 450 Competition
      MENTOR, Ohio (March 13, 2018) – Jeremy Martin showed the way for Wiseco-sponsored riders in Saturday night’s Monster Energy Daytona Supercross presented by Honda. In a season marred by bad luck and misfortune, Martin put together a near flawless ride to earn his first Eastern Regional 250SX Class podium finish of the season.
      Martin qualified eighth for the division’s annual visit to the World Center of Racing, finished fourth in his heat race, and came home second in the 250SX main event, missing his first win of the year by less than a second.

      “It’s Daytona, a real man’s track.” said Martin who sits fourth in points. “It was the toughest race of the year as far as fitness. I had to slow down a little bit, halfway through the main. I was getting close to (race winner) Jordon (Smith) and I was starting to think about where I could make a move on him, then I made some mistakes and he got away from me. Couldn’t quite get close again, but it’s good. We’re on the podium and in contention for wins again. That’s something I haven’t been able to say in supercross in a while. We want to get wins and now we know it’s coming.”
      Martin’s podium was a bright spot, but the rest of the event was rough for the GEICO Honda/Factory Connection squad. RJ Hampshire crashed hard in his heat race and had to be transported to a local hospital. He injured his back and ribs, but shoulder pain left him with the most concern.
      “I felt good on the bike all day,” said Hampshire via his Instagram account. “Had some pretty good speed and my foot just slid off hitting my shifter in those rollers during that heat race. After seeing the pictures from the crash I’m very thankful I didn’t take a shot to my head. I have some fractures in my T3/T4 in my back and ribs. Also have some damage to my lungs which is why I’ll be spending a couple nights in the hospital. I’ll be getting some more checkups this week on the shoulder also.”
      Cameron McAdoo, the third member of the team, was unable to compete at Daytona after being sidelined with a hand injury two races ago in Atlanta.
      Across the paddock, in the premier 450SX Class, Christian Craig got the call to fill in for Team Honda HRC. With the team’s regular riders Ken Roczen and Cole Seely out with injuries, it was up to Craig to carry the load for the factory team, and the upstart rider didn’t disappoint.
      The San Diego native was solid in both qualifying sessions, won his heat race and snagged the holeshot in the division’s main event. After relinquishing the lead to eventual winner Justin Brayton, Craig continued to show he was up for the challenge. The 26-year-old rider raced for second and third for most of the 20-minute-plus-one-lap feature before losing one more spot in the late goings to bring his No. 32 Honda CRF450R home fourth in the final rundown.

      “I had a great week testing with the team,” commented Craig. “They came down to Florida right after Atlanta and I feel like we really improved. Just getting more time on the bike and getting more comfortable was huge. I started off race day feeling really good. My qualifying position didn’t really show it, but overall I was happy with my riding. It’s all about having fun out there, and man, that’s what I did tonight. I was up front in the heat race, fell to third, but then the two guys in front took each other out so I ended up winning. You can call it luck or whatever, but I just put myself in a good position to capitalize on people’s mistakes."
      “I had a good gate pick and some confidence going into the main. I grabbed the holeshot and led for almost the first lap, but [Justin] Brayton got by me pretty quick. I stayed second for quite a while. I just rode my hardest and did my best. Unfortunately, a couple guys got by me so I ended up fourth. The track was so tough. This is only my second time racing Daytona and last year didn’t go well, so I really wanted to get some revenge this year. It’s better than the week before, but man, I was so close to a podium. I just need to keep putting myself in good positions and work on getting better each weekend.”
      Monster Energy AMA Supercross rolls on this weekend when the series visits the “Gateway to the West” for its annual race at the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis. The 11th of 17 races on the 2018 supercross calendar will be televised live on FS1 Saturday, March 17, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 5 p.m. Pacific.

      Hi all,
      My main question is how can I make my 250r more reliable. I have owned it for 2 years and it was spent about 1 year in the shed probably needing new valves and piston rings (i have been putting it off) Will steel valves last longer and work well in the engine? Also, what are your thoughts of me selling it and buying something newer? is it worth it?
