i am thinking about buying an XR 250 and was wondering if any one had any suggestions on a year and or mods? i new to biking and dont need too much power but enough to get me around technical trails and climb some hills

my thought is, newer is almost always better, but it really depends on the condition. There are some "newer" bikes out there that have had the crap beat out of them too. So, condition, condition, condition. As far as mods, see what is comes with, again, USUALLY the more mods the better, then go from there.

In '96 the XR250R was extensively improved, frame, engine, suspension, etc. There were a few changes since, not much.

lets say i get one and it is completly stock what aort of mod would you suggest

Look up on the main XR250/400 page and you will see the words "Gordon Mods"

That is all you will ever need, Until you start buying aftermarket stuff !!!

      Guy's,  I have an 1997 Honda XR400R and I need to do the front forks.  I'm a big guy 6'4" 375lbs.  So far I haven't been able to find a setup for a big guy. Any suggestions besides losing a lot of weight. :-)

      Went riding on Christmas Eve  everything was working fine went through some mud and slipped dropped my bike tried to kick start it and the kick start went limp pushed it back up got compression again  kicked it over a bunch of times started to run again  rode it for the rest of the ride with no problems then on the way back on the road I gave it fill throttle  and it died hasn't started  since and now has little compression. Replaced the spark plug and changed the oil and filter and adjusted the valves but still very little Compression and won't start.    
      Any ideas??  Would greatly appreciate
