Hate to do this but i got to...

Recommended Posts

Well this isnt fun but i havent rode my bike in like a month or two and i hate to watch it sit around and do nothing.. So i decided that im gonna sell it and either save money or look for something else. This is a very clean and great running bike.. price is $1,100 o.b.o

It is a 1987 XR 250 with 280 bore kit, XR's only exhaust,UNI air filter,answer racing handlebars, no rips or tears in the seat, good plastic, new tires, new jets, and new grips. this bike is an awesome bike but its gotta go.. But only one thing wrong with it is that the head cover is missing some bolts so i will fix that and it should be perfect after that. I live in NorthWest Arkansas.. And if you have any questions just PM me and we can work something out. This bike is awesome and you will not be dissapointed. You can see pics of it on my signature at the bottom thanx..

Give me a break. Everyone has busy periods. You don't need the money, so just let it sit. Drain the gas outta the carb and don't worry about it.

LOL....I have to agree with the other posters in that you are over reacting to a predicatment that as you progress through life, you will find other agnendas that will surface and preempt your ability to ride. Imagine if you were faced with a 50 plus hour job and a 2 year old to raise, then you will know the meaning of precious riding time. Just park the bike, drain the gas, and store it properly until you can ride. You will really appreciate seat time when the oppurtunity returns. And it will.

Sell something else if you really need the money. You are going to be kicking yourself so hard, you will feel like and idiot. :cry: Personally, i would just let it sit, you can find money elsewhere. Your not gonna find a better bike, only if you buy a $6,000 bike. Just keep it, you will be very glad you did.

I dont think we have to worry about him selling it as today he was out riding it. He really needs to get the head cover bolts drilled out and put new ones in but other than that its a sweet bike.

Sell it. You're a kid. Explore other avenues. Go to college- join the service- see whats up.

Live.

When you're ready- and eventually you will be- you'll be back to riding!

Good luck, it's a tough time to be a kid. You'll do great. :cry:

Northwest Arkansa is up in Springdale and such. For now you can just push start your bike.... For less than $100 you could have your bike perfect.

Whats wrong with your kicker? If what I think is wrong is your problem it can be easly be fixed. Are the pads that contact each other when you have the kicker in the out position worn? Is it causing you kicker to stick on the frame, if to about 5 seconds of welding can fix your problem.

Ok, you will sell your bike and spend another 2 grand in getting another one but you wont spend the $100 to get your bike fix that you really like? And yes you would kill yourself and everyone next to you on a 650.
