Tire pressure

I have a 2000 CRF 250...

What is the correct tire pressure i should be running. I'm going to be riding in mostly dirt this weekend.

Thanks in advance.

try the search feature, IMO anywhere for 18-20 front and back, dont go under 10 or youll increase chances of getting a flat dont go over 25 otherwise youll plow thru sand instead of on top of it

Thanks.. that will do

&%$#@!? 18-20?

You want anywhere between 12-14 front and rear. It really does depend on where you're riding. (rocks, sand, mud)

What do you mean by "mostly dirt?"

I use 13 front & 15 rear works for me. You need to play around with different pressure for your preference. Also it depends what tires you have so you are not going to get proper advise with your question.

The Honda manual recomends 15 and 15 as a base. In the Florida sand I use 10 and 10.

did they make a crf250 in 2000?

WOW, that is a lot of pressure...think he got confused and was talking about his mountain bike

I ride in mud a lot of the time in NY so i run my pressure a bit lower....9 in front and back

i usually run 12-14 front and rear


i'll be riding in Baja this weekend.. Mexico is mostly dirt... not many roads, not much sand.

Okay.. okay... okay

If i don't own a crf 250... then its a cr250. Or is that wrong... might it be a cr250r? I don't know man. I'm not really a big dirt bike rider. I grew up on ATC's. It had been years since i rode any ATV. Then i went out one day... rode a rm125... liked it and picked up a 2000 Honda CR250R. It's a lot more bike on the low end... but the top end isn't dialed in right. Maybe it's becasue i'm 250... I don't know. It has a full FMF Pipe, V Force Reed Valves. The kid i bought it from never mentioned if the carb was worked on. Like i said.. the bottom end is sick.. but top end isn't what i expected it to be. Then again i also have a CBR1000RR and i've done 170 several times.. maybe i am just aclimated to the speed.

Anyway... The bike seems to mush around a little bit too much for me... but again..this might have nothing to do with tire pressure and more to do with me not being a really good dirt bike rider. In any event... the tire make is Dunlop Sport RS D739G.

Oh yeah.. i bought a Honda TRX 450 to take to mexico too. I'll see what the 4 stroke can do.

you may just be used to that street bike feel. when i feel like there's something that doesn't feel right i get a friend or someone more experienced to ride my bike and give me thier opinion. i've been riding a while and theres alot of things i just can't feel on my bike to know if its right or not. suspension is my biggest problem. i can't tell if its even close to being dialed in. i have a friend of mine who is right around the same weight ride my bike. he usually comes back right away and tells me whats wrong, i just don't have the feel for it. i'm getting better though, i learn a little each time out.

I guess i'l get a good idea of which bike does what... I'll be riding them both in Mexico this weekend.

The good thing is.. no matter how badly i get beat.. They're both my bikes.... it's all good.

did they make a crf250 in 2000?

      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?
