i want a cr250

Recommended Posts

hell, i have 2005 rmz250 and im not loving the 4 strokes, they have to much to worry about. so i want to switch over to a cr250 bc ive always loved Hondas. so i wanted to know if everyone could help me out on what a good price is on a cr250. im looking for something like a 2003 or up. but im willing to work with that a lil bit.

so just tell me good prices and what that year of bike has problems with.

thanks vinny

Honestly, Yamaha is the best, with Suzuki a close second. Honda's handle great, but the case reed motors from 02+ require mods just to get them equal with the previously mentioned.

The YZ and RM engines are more snappy at low RPM compared to an '02 - up CR case reed motors, but the CR makes more overall peak power. My brief experiment with porting my '03 showed that the case reed motors can crank out a ton of power when properly tuned; just not at really low RPM.

Dude where do you live in North Carolina, I live almost exactly between Benson and Smithfield if you live anywhere close we can ride dude! But personally if you have about $2,000 to spend in hop-up parts a new 04-07 CR250 would be unbeatable but box-stock a YZ250 is great. Dont get me wrong I have a 91' and 06' CR250 and I like them enough I'm getting ready to buy a leftover 05'CR250( its brand new).The only thing you have to decide is price range and what coler you like.GOOD LUCK!!!!!!
