Well, after riding four strokes and enduring their non-stop mechanical attentions I bought myself a 2000 CR250 last night. This thing is mint! It sat for years in a guys garage after he broke his arm on it. The wife told him to sell it or stop riding it...he just kept it as a garage conversation piece. Mind you he was a dentist so his hands & arms are his lively hood. Then the kid I bought it from last night only used it for checking his cattle. I will have pics this weekend. I'm loaded down with studying and papers this week. Everything is original except tires and the kid I bought it from put new piston and ring in it before winter. I'm just happy I found this bike. I use to race the 2001 CR125 and loved that bike. My concern right now is: it is completely stock and never truly opened up. What are some things I should do with it? I'm going to clean the power valve assembly, carburator, repack the bearings, replace all fluids, and ride the piss out of it. lol Anything else I should do? Oh, I did just order a new air filter, Boysen reeds, brake pads (EBC), and 64oz of Maxima Castro 927. I've been riding thumpers for so long I forgot how much a 2 stroke has as far as power and fun factor!
