98 RM250 motor on 88 Frame?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if a 1998 RM250 Motor will fit on a 1988 RM250 frame and if so any modifications needed for this? It is beyond a pain to find parts for my 88 motor without costing an arm and a leg so its time to compromise. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Other than parts availability there's no cost savings between rebuilding an old bike verses a new bike.  So personally if you really are having a hard time getting the parts that you need for your '88, I personally would suggest that you sell it for what you can and buy something newer.  It's not like the '88 has any real special value, for vintage MX the year cut off for most of the series is '89 and because of "like design" you could actually race a '91 as a '89 ~ the basic engine, chassis & suspension is the same.

 

Even worse is that the '88 compared to a '98 is 4 generations older in overall design.
