Picked this up for $250

Recommended Posts

So I just rebuilt my 07 CRF250X, check it out if you havn't seen it....

So I decided to try and find a bike that needed some work and fix it up and try and sell it for a profit. I found it on craigslist. Seems like a killer deal to me.

There are a few problems with the bike.

1. The rear rim is bent and needs to be replaced. - $150 on ebay

2. Cases leak oil. - Split the cases and install new gasket

3. Brakes need to be blead.

4. Carb needs a cleaning

5. Stale gas

6. Kickstart ratchet may need to be replaced.

7. May need a top end

Here are some pics. It has new plastics on it too.

Sick. If I knew how to fix up bikes I would totally buy a beater in hopes of a profit.

Heck with all the other issues that bike seems to have (sounds like it was beatin to death) I'd through a top end in anyway...that way when you turn to sell it you can have a clean conscience with the new owner. If you got that for 250 bucks that is a killer deal...good catch!

jsut looked at your CRF...did a great job on it. I think if you put that much effort into the KX it will turn out to be sick. Probably wont want to sell it...lol

I hope.

I just ordered a full top end kit and I have no clue how to install it!

Ive watched the vids and I have an idea, but Im not sure if I can do it.

=====================================================

I want to get an old CR500 and restore it.

there really easy to do, just do the research on it do a couple "dry runs" before the actual job and you be alright,

that front brake line looks really sketchy.................

The topend is pretty easy to do, the hardest part is getting in the circlips. When I redid my topend one of my dad's friends is an auto mechanic and he happened to be at our house, so he installed the circlips for me. Those things are tricky :/

just make sure you cover the opening of the bottom end with a rag so when the circlips go flying (and they will) they dont end up in the bottom end!!!!

How exactly do you install the circlips correctly?
