Picked up an 02 250

Recommended Posts

:ride:I have been pining away for one of these, my 97 is fun but i always wonder how much it was holding me back. So this bike has had 3 back tires on it, Still has the original front, it was in pretty good shape except for the rear spokes. Looks like they never got tightened and were all loose with the grey powder around the nipples. I was able to tighten them up with the help of vise grips and PB blaster. i rode it last sunday with out doing much to it exceppt checking all lthe fluids. I think the 97 was holding me back, this thing rocks and is soo much more stable.

Now i get to start making it right. I have new fork guards, front M404 tire, tube, wheel brngs and a kill switch. Adjusted the RC valve cables and then all the controls to my liking. Taking it to the track Thursday morning.

Next is squish (currently at .070) and a PWK 38

Looks great!!!! How'd you do on the price? Just curious, as I just splurged for an 01 in pretty rough shape...paid too much. People seem to want a bundle out here. The pwk 38 is on my list also.

$2100 here in the Sacramento area. Got a bunch of extra stuff with it also. I have seen some better deals but they are always gone in several hours.

That looks like a pretty sweet deal, especially compared to mine. i have that much in mine and it's still messed up. Of course i'm getting robbed by the shop since i'm too lazy to figure this stuff out myself. nice bike

Put a new Bridgstone m403 and fork guards on the front tonight. Going the track tomorrow before work. First time at a track on the 02.

Nice pick-up there. From all I have read, the PWK carb should be great. Keep us posted.

Nice bike. Looks like it's still on the stock sprockets so it's a low hour bike. The odds are the wheel bearings are still in good shape and still have a lot of life left in them.

Next time you need to loosen seized spokes, take the wheels off and chuck the spokes in a vise with aluminum soft jaws. Works great without tearing the plating off the spokes with vise grips.

Hopefully you got the stock pipe with it. The stock CR pipes are best.

Turns out the wheel bearings were fine. The axel nut was not tight giving it that little bit of play because the bearing races were not locked together with the spacer. Head comes off tomorrow and i am taking it to work for modifications on tuesday

      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
