CR250 crankshafts

Recommended Posts

Are the later model crankshafts, like a 2005/6 compatible to replace a 2002-2004 crankshaft?

I heard that the 2005/6 crankshaft is a better part.

Thanks

2002-2006 CR250 are the same bike. There were some small differences introduced in 2005 mainly to do with the exhaust manifold which made expansion chambers not interchangable from 05 onwards. Your crankshaft SHOULD be the same from 02-06. :applause:

I often hear that using the crankshaft off the older engine design (92-01) will give the bike more snap because its lighter I believe..

punkrockmx is right. you can use a crank from one of the older hondas, 92-01 in the 02 and up to at least 04, not sure about the 05 for sure. the older cranks were a few grams lighter, and will help liven up the electric feel of the 02 and up power delivery... :applause:
