CRF250R Rear Fender

Will the CRF250R rear fender & front number plate fit on the CRF250X? I never seem to ride at night and I'll eventually destroy both the head-light and tail-light.

Usually I'll box the stock lights, rear fender, and front number plate to spare them their eventual fate then install them again for the next owner if they want them on. Sometimes they don't but they end up with clean undamaged stuff anyway.

I am wondering this too, the front number plate of the R should be fine on the X, however the rear fender on the X holds the main relay, and all of the electrical components, does anyone know how to get around this.

I think you'll have to do some moving around of electrical components to get the rear fender to work. The # plate will not bolt right up either, there's no tab on the bottom clamp for the # plate to hook onto and there's no place to attach it on top either.

the rear fender wil fit. u do have to tuck in the electrical stuff and make a small cut for the coolant bottle mount.

spdtrip is right the rear fender does fit got one sitting on my bike in the garage right now,i used a polisport fender and all i did was zip tyed the electricals to the sub frame through the holes in the mounting rubber were it was fixed on the x fender :naughty: , and she's got a R front plate with original triple clamps :naughty:

and she's got a R front plate with original triple clamps :naughty:

dogchod, did the front number plate simply bolt on, or did you have to modify anything to get it to fit on there? Thanks in advance!

Well, I've ordered the Acerbis rear fender and number plate, hope they fit :naughty:

I've noticed that some of you, by looking through your 'garage's', that you've pretty much done the same thing.

I know it shouldn't be a big deal, but I'll take any advice and tips you'd like to offer up.

Thanks in advance!

So all you have to do is zip tie the electrical components on the rear fender, but what do you do for the front number plate?

well it depends how fussy you are :naughty:

basically i got a old yzf plate and made new tabs that fit over the original posts where the light sat,i used some super strengh glue and then drilled each side of the post holes and also zip tyed into place.Drill two new holes and insert the two original post rubbers and fit onto bottom clamp.

Drill a pair of holes either side of the forks and zip tye front plate through and around the forks, job done :naughty:

you will have to zip tye the metal frame that holds the wires etc for the light onto the hole where the tacho used to fit

Its a bit of a bodge but i did all this as soon as i got the bike home as i don't need the lights and they would only get smashed and i thought at the time someone would of made a proper aftermarket plate before now

this was over 8 month's ago and its still on and never come off (and i have crashed a few times in 8 months :D )

I Love Zip Tyes

      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?

      I checked the valve clearance on my 06 crf250r and both exhaust valves is at .007 and the intake is (left side) .005 and (right side) .000??? idk my feeler gague only went down to .002 and it would not slide in.
      Is that ok for the exhaust? Do I need to just shim the right side on the intake? or does both need shimming?
