'87 XL250R in need of an engine...


Recommended Posts

I have a complete '87 XL250R rolling chassis with only a little over 3T miles. I am in need of an engine, preferably from the 1986-1987 years. Yes the red one! I am also contemplating if an XR250r engine of the same years fit the chassis without modification. I know the XL runs on AC and the XR runs on DC current. Any body know or have an engine for sale?

hi there im pretty shure the xr engine will fit as they are pretty much the same apart from gearing and head porting is a tad smaller.

you can swap out the stator in the xr enine (provided you get one) and put a XL stator in. that will give you the battery charging ability. and im pretty shure the 87 xr250r is a single carb black or cast iron engine coloured bike. if you wanted you could put the 84-85 twin carb xr250r engine as they are twin carb and would probably fit right in.

good luck man!!!!

cheers!!
