Hey guys, so here is my dilemma. I part bikes to make side money. I just had my 3rd son and I don't use my 2008 Crf250r anymore.

Many mods and zero hours on the brand new Valves and top end. (Never started it cause I'm tired of kick starting bikes... I know I'm weird..... plus my Drz and Raptor keep me entertained) I will start it this weekend if I don't have a Honey Do List to complete .

So, I want a bad ass 2 stroke (just because) and somebody said "dude, drop a cr500 engine in that Bitch"

I'm like hmmmm "not a bad Ef-ing idea, but a 2 stroke 500 is to much engine for what I do here in NY)

So I have a complete 250r and I can get a 2001 cr250 engine off of EBay for $1600 (same price I can sell my 250f engine for)

My question:

I'm worried if I part out this bike and make $4000 (yes I can do that) that I will kick my self in the ass in 10 years for not doing the conversion. I only see Service Honda making their own shit! But not offering a kit or instructions on how to do it myself. If I have all the parts, do I need them? Are their instructions on how to cut my frame so I can give it to a welder to complete? Let me know guys, I know you guys on TT have Godly Knowledge and I appreciate any info you can give before I bite the bullet and rip this CRF apart and sell.

Thanks a million in advance for all your comments, your Awesome!20171102_103822.jpgCapture%2B_2017-11-08-20-24-02.png

There are many people out there doing this. I have one in progress at the moment. I made my own parts and billet Y. You will need a qualified tig welder to do this project.
