00-01 cr 250 to 98 cr 250 fuel tank questions

i was wondering if a 2000 or 2001 cr 250 gas tank will fit on a 98 cr 250?

my friend has the shrouds and tank for sale for a good price for me.

any help will be appreciated


i am wanting a black tank instead of a white one.. the white one stands out on my bike because its black.

also im wanting to put newer plastics on the bike.. 02+ will they work on a 00-01 fuel tank?

The 02 plastic won't line up on the 01 tank, one hole is out of wack.

crap.. i just bought the tank for 10 dollars lol

we'll see how it goes..

and is there any difference between say an 03 CR 250 rad. shrouds and 03 CRF 450 shrouds? cause i also have a chance to pick those up.

Ebay it. You will sell it for a lot more than $10 and whoever buys it will be happy they didn't pay the $260 for a new one.

dont wasnt the time on trying to make it work you can get a carbon fiber wrap for your 98 tank

00-01 gas tanks do not fit 97-99 cr250s... nor do the plastics from a 97-99 fit the 00-01 tank.. also 02+ rad. shrouds do not fit.

i learned the hard way like usual lol so this is just fyi

where can i get carbon fiber tank covers for the 98 250? i googled it and cant find any for that year

lightspeed is the only people i see with the carbon fiber covers and its not for our year! w tf mate

yea it sucks they dont have our year.. and that carbon wrap might work out.. i never thought of that.

i asked around, and the vinyle stuff def wont stick for long. and by the time you put real carbon on your tank you could have just bought a new tank

ill show you what the white tank looks like with 07 plastics i should have my bike back together no later than thursday you really dont notice it to much

But....02-07 rads fit on the '97-'99 tank, with the exception of the hole closer to the seat, which needs a bracket about an inch long...i would do that instead

Bike is finally back together rear shock rebuilt heres what the tank looks like




wow that looks good.. good job on that.

also does anyone want to trade a 97-99 ims 3.1 (or so) gallon tank for a stock one? i will trade straight up as long as yours is nice and you pay shipping.

which i think thats more than fair considering the tank is about $250 or more.

I'm interested in trading tanks with you. Let me know, I'm in California.

      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?
