Need a little advice.

My bike is a 05 cr250r with at most 40 hours on it. With the bike sitting on a stand the rear wheel has a little left to right movement. I checked the axle nut and it is tight.

Could my wheel bearing be already out? The bike shouldnt have over 1000 miles on it! Thanks for the help.

Ur rims probably isnt true. Im pretty sure u just need to true the rim. Could also be ur tire if u got a really shitty one on there. The way to see would be to take the tire off and have it trued. If u cant feel it when u ride I would leave it until u need a new tire. Good luck.

Your chain alignment could also be off. Thats most likely what it is. :busted:

Oh i should have clarified. The tire and rim are straigh and true.

What the problem is when i push and pull on the wheel side to side it has some movement. Maybe 1/8 to a 1/4".

Hmm. I'm not sure that it has anything to do with the wheel bearings (although it's possible). Maybe a problem with the spacers?

Also don't forget about spokes being loose.

chain alignment is off most likely.

tighten up your swingarm bolts that push the anxle block out. Your problem is that one side is lose. All that needs to be done is you just have to realign your axle blocks.

there should be little increments on your swing arm with a arrow on the axle block pointing to them, just make sure they are both in the same spot.

Make sure the axle bolt and swing arm bolt is tight.

When you tighten the axle, it will pinch the axle blocks into the swing arm.

Look to see where the play is, the hub, or the swing arm.

It sounds like wheel bearings. Do you own a pressure washer and like it?

Also don't forget about spokes being loose.

I took a closer look and your were right it was loose spokes.

*slaps face*

of course...that would do it, huh?

      I have a 2000 Cr125r and I’m in the middle of rebuilding it I just put a new crank and new bearings and all new gaskets so far. I haven’t made it to the top end honestly I’m kinda stuck at this point I &%$#@!ed up and didn’t take pictures while taking it apart mistake on my end because I can’t even find any pictures or anything on it now. I already put the cases back together I’m now on the shift brake pause side I was wondering if anyone could help me with a few pictures of that side of the motor if someone had some? Or send me a link of a diagram of how it’s supposed to be and look. this is the only part I’m stuck on it’s pretty tricky but after that i just got the top end I really appreciate any advice or any pictures y’all come up with or diagram EVERYTHING helps I’m kinda dead in the water at this point ..

      I have a 2005 cr125 new to me. I had millennium tech replate cylinder and supply new piston. I replaced crank bearings and now it won't hit power ban. It feels like a 4 stroke bouncing off rev limiter. It is also putting a lot of black spooge out of exhaust i mean a lot. The plug is black. I cleaned carb and adjusted floats. I also repacked silencer. I noticed the carb leaking gas out overflow the other day. I suspect it is running really rich. I have a brand new pwk from Jd jetting I'm going to try out. I also did a leakdown test and it held. I also am not 100% sure the power valve is set up right. The manual doesn't go into great detail about this. But it seems like there is only one way to put it back together. I have the engine out I'm going to do another leakdown test and double check my power valve and put it back together with this pwk. Any other thoughts out there?

      Hello all!! I picked this up yesterday.  New to me 1997 RM250.  It has Rockstar graphics on it and the guy said it's a Rockstar edition bike.  I can't find anything online that would give me any details.  It looks to have the correct graphics and the radiator shrouds are purple.  Any ideas where to find out the details for these editions?
