please help me find a '96 or newer Xr250 engine

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a '96 or newer XR250 engine to swap into an '03 YZ250F roller. The swap looks like it will be a slam-dunk and I'd REALLY like to build a trailbike with an XR engine in a modern chassis. But I've got to find an engine first. I'd obviously like to find one that's running or at least in rebuildable condition, but I would be almost as happy if I could get my hands on a wrecked engine that I could use for mock-up. Anyone?

Yeah, thanks. I've been looking but I've had some awful experiences buying dirt pike parts on ebay. I'm usually pretty good at sniffing out deals, but I'm striking out. Tempted to buy a bike and part it out. I'm just short on time and space.

Yup, I hear ya! I'm always a bit nervous buying engines on ebay but it certainly helps if the price is right or the engine looks nice and clean from a low mileage/hour bike.

It's funny. I've bought and sold a lot of stuff online and on ebay, and I've done alright on almost everything BUT used dirt bike parts. I'd feel better if I could just find a TT member who's willing to part with an engine...
