need some advice, please 01 honda cr250r

Recommended Posts

hey here is my question hopfully one of you guys know this answer, I have asked my local shop here what they thought was the problem and he said eather crank seal or bearings? the bike is a 2001 honda cr250r,fmf fatty pipe, stock silencer, stock reeds, 93 octain gas with klots R50 mixed at 32:1 with maxima tranny oil in tranny, The bike has always run perfect, plug color looks perfect. like a normal 2-stroke when its cold it smokes pretty good but after a few minutes of warming up it cleans out nice with just a little smoke when reved, But now it smokes real bad even after fully warmed up and it smell weird the best way i can descibe this smell is its more like a chevy truck burning oil real bad or a ford or a lawn mower, pretty much any 4 stroke motor that is smoking real bad and smells, You almost cant even smell the klots anymore, thanks alot in advance

Stop now, pull it out and rebuild it before it goes boom. Frequent freshups are a lot cheaper than fixing catastrophic failures. Sounds like you got your moneys worth if its all original still. Cranks, seals and pistons are cheap. Cheaper still if you wait and find what you need on ebay.

Cranks usually go quite a few hours, just inspect it while you're in there. Also check the main bearings. Replace the crankshaft seals and throw in a new piston.

      Kicking around the idea of selling my CR250. I have other bikes and never get a chance to ride this one.

      This is a well-maintained bike with tons of aftermarket parts. It's set up primarily for woods/single-track riding, but will still do just fine on an MX track.

      Engine:
      -Fresh Pro-X top end(<1 hour)
      -FMF Gnarly pipe & FMF Shorty silencer(<1 hour on fresh packing)
      -PWK Air-Striker Carburetor(bought new from JD Jetting last year)
      -Steahy 10oz. Flywheel Weight
      -Boyesen Rad Valve with Carbon-fiber reeds
      -TwinAir air filter

      Misc:
      -Excel Pro-Series Wheels(19"/21")
      -Brand-new Shinko tires(546 Front, 505 Cheater Rear not mounted yet) w/ Heavy-duty tubes
      -Works Connection Radiator Guards
      -Skid Plate
      -FMF Factory 909 Handlebars
      -Polished Frame
      -Sunstar 13/51 Steel Sprockets(new in box)

      I'm sure I'm missing a few odds and ends. Comes with a Bill of Sale only. (708)287-1998 - Dave

      Hello,
      I could not seem to find a similar thread so if one exists I apologize. I have an 02 cr250r with an 01 motor. I need to buy a new silencer with a spark arrestor because the current one does not have one. I am not sure if the owner before me used an 01 or 02 silencer because I have read the frame had significant changes from 01 to 02. Any thoughts? Thanks!

      I want to restore a 1996 cr80 that doesn’t have any graphics and absolutely love the 1994 cr125r tank shroud graphics, I can’t seem to find anything that fits the cr80 with those graphics. I found one last week but lost the page and couldn’t track it down again, do the cr125r graphics fit the cr80 tank shrouds? or does anyone know where someone could make them for cheap or know about any in Australia

      Hey guys,
       
      Could someone please explain the numbers on a needle jet for a mikuni carb?  I'm currently running a 38-73 needle but a lot of the people I talk to say I would be happier running a 38-70 needle.  I don't have a problem with going with what other recommend but I would like to understand the numbering for the needles first.  I understand the nozzle sizes, main jet and pilot jet it's just this damn needle thingamobob
       
      Thanks a lot
