Sell my 2001 whole or part it out?

Anybody who has parted their bikes out have any advice? I know I could get a decent price for the engine. I just don't know how desirable the rest of the bike is.

maybe take some pics so we can help you? I have never parted bikes but I have parted cars before, the pics should help us help you get started.



Looks really clean for an 01'. I personally would hate to part it if it didn't have something like a blown motor or cracked frame. In the end you can potentially get more money for parting, if you're able to sell everything. There are a lot of people doing the same thing and other than the big stuff, it'll take a long time to get rid of it all. I'm not a fan of it.

What are you lookin' to get out of it?

PM me if your interested. I don't want this turning into an ad. Yes, the bike is in almost near perfect condition. Very little use.

Im not wanting to know for myself haha, I was just curious as to what kind of price you want to get out of it, then compare what you'd probably be able to expect from parting it.

Its really just a matter of are willing to take the time to try and sell all the parts individually or take a little dent in the profit to sell the bike as a whole. I would think you'll be able to get a fair price out of it in that condition, most people part em' cause they're toast.

I really have no idea what its worth. To the right guy 2k, but to some average guy wanting a 2t I'm sure he wouldn't pay more than 1200-1400 for it. So if I get the right guy, I'll come out alright, or I'll be better off parting if I think I'm gonna get 1700-2k locally.

You would be surprised how many people want to actually buy a whole bike. Especially as we are getting ready to roll into the spring and getting ready for the next riding season. People are going to start getting the itch and hunting for the right bike.

im looking around to get a new bike pm me what u want for it.

I think I might put the original plastics back on it. The black plastics were on the bike when I got it, plus the original stuff is still if good shape besides one crack. I think I will post pics of the 2003 build I'm doing and I could always throw the 01' motor and part with the 01' chassis and the 03' motor. I am just wondering if it's worth it, is the 01' motor really that much better? I can spend a little money on either motor so if I can make the 03' motor run just as well it would be easier to do. It also seems that the jury isn't out if the 03' motor is really all that bad.

Looks too nice to be a "parted bike". If anything put the stock parts you have back on it, sell teh bike and then post the extras you have. The plastic sells well and the pipes are getting crazy (if you have stock to put on). I use craigslist to look for stuff but Ebay will get better prices for you. My area (MI) that would bring 1500-1900 the way is sets. I'd like the pipe myself:ride:

      So Been rebuilding my bike and the rubber mallet just "wouldn't cut it"!!!!
      I had to pry managed to sand down it all looked flat but this seems a bit gappy.

      This is only on the outer edge but I can help worry this is going to leak or get shit into the engine.
      Any help or advice would be awesome thanks

      Hey guys, so cant find much online about cr 250r enduro conversions (nothing recent) so im wondering if it is an option or not. I currently have a crf 250x 2009 and a XR 650r. If i want a 2 stroke enduro but want to stick with the honda line up, is a 2007 or 2005 honda cr 250r a good option. and if so what would need to be done to it to get it up to spec for trail and enduro riding. Thanks very much

      If you own a 2 stroke dirtbike,please reply once. Im just wondering how many people on this site have them.

      Note: This specifically applies to the '92 - '01 CR250 engine, but it should be adaptable to any 2-stroke. The basic idea is to pull the carb and exhaust, plug one and pressurize the engine through the other to look for leaks.
      It's very important to pressure test a 2-stroke after it's assembled. The reason is that a 2-stroke gets it's lube through the pre-mix. An air leak means your engine can run lean. Lean means too little fuel. Too little fuel means too little lube. Too little lube means death to your engine. So here we go.
      First, you need to pull the seat, tank, shock, carb and pipe. Everything you need (other than a tire pump) is shown below.

      The assembly below is basically a 1-3/4" PVC plug (same OD as the intake pipe ID) that is transitioned down to a 0-15 psi gauge, a shut-off valve and a Schrader valve (to connect a tire pump). The 1-3/4" PVC plug is a tight fit in the intake pipe, but it'll fit with enough persuasion. I used yellow heavy duty pipe tape (made for gas systems) to put everything together. I don't have all the technical names for everything, but if you take the pictures to a hardware store, they should be able to help you piece it together.

      The item below is an adjustable rubber freeze plug. They are available at automotive parts stores in various sizes, but the closest one I could make work was a 1-3/4" version. You tighten the nut which squeezes two metal plates together which squeezes and expands the rubber piece between the plates. You have to tighten it a lot, but it makes a good seal in the exhaust port.

      Before you install everything, make sure that the piston is at BDC (so that all the ports are open), the spark plug is installed and all other components are properly tightened. Below, you can see the gauge/valve assembly installed in the intake pipe. Make sure to tighten your intake pipe hose clamp tightly as the pressure will tend to push the assembly out.

      Below, you can see the freeze plug installed in the exhaust port.

      Once you have everything installed as shown, use a tire pump to pressurize the engine to 6 - 8 psi, then close the valve and watch the gauge for any pressure drop over a 5 - 10 minute period. A well sealed engine will hold pressure with no observable pressure drop for 10 minutes easily.
      One common "leak" in a healthy '92 - '01 CR250 engine (and probably other types) is through the powervalve linkage. It probably doesn't affect performance, but it'll sure throw your leak measurements off. To avoid leaks, make sure the powervalve linkage is correctly lubed (per the Service Manual) with grease and Moly 60 Paste during assembly.
      If your engine holds pressure with no observable drop for 10 minutes, you're good to go. If the pressure drops 2 - 3 psi or more over 10 minutes, spray soapy water all around the pressure test parts first to check for leaks there. If you find none on the test setup, start spraying the soapy water around the base gasket, head gasket, center gasket etc. Any pressure drop of less than 2 psi over 10 minutes is your call, but I'd definitely fix it.
      I've had really good results by using Permatex Copper Gasket Sealant on the base gasket, PV cover gasket and reed cage gasket. I don't use anything on the head gasket.

      What value would you say a 1986 cr250 with a freshly plated cylinder and new top end, newer tires, newer chain & sprockets, in overall very good condition?
      I picked up the bike (cheap) a month or so ago in need of cylinder replating & top end. Apparently the headgasket blew internally scouring the cylinder. The crank feels good and the bike is very clean/good condition.
      I havent put the bike together yet (too busy to ship cylinder and order parts), but figure I would have a total of $600 (including bike cost) to get it into good running cond.
      A friend wants to buy it as-is for his 15 yr old 200# kid. What value wouldyou put on it in As-is condition vs with a fresh engine?
