movin to a red bike

Recommended Posts

hey guys im riding a 06yz250f that is a pretty great bike and it like it, but i got a chance to get 07crf250r with low hours and mostly stock i beleive. on to the real question, ive herd horror stories about this bike blowing up for no reason and having problem after problem is it true, are the motors really that bad in theese things. The way i see it is honda is the best selling bike and therefore statistically its more possible for a larger group of people to buy one that doesnt give a **** about their bikes purchase one. what are your thoughts opinions and strong points of this bike

They are great strong bikes... I have 73.1 hrs on the meter on my 08. Just make sure you keep up on maintenance.

The stock valves are still perfect. I have a JE piston in my bike right now, re rung it at around 62 hrs on the meter. Dissassembled the head and cleaned it all out and put new seals in, valves looked great.

valves are NOT a problem as long as you take car of her, just clean your air filter when it gets dirty, and dont neglect your oil either

From what I have heard so far, it doesn't sound like you can handle the CRF, maybe you should say away.

JK....they are fine.
