FMF pipe same size size as exhaust port?

Recommended Posts

My friend just gave me his old fmf factory fatty. He had a honda cr250. Im not sure what year. My dad has a 2002 honda cr250, and the pipe fits good into the frame, no clearence issues, the bolt holes all line up, but the part where it connects to the engine ( exhaust port? ) is the same size as the pipe! I was just wondering if there is some sort of flange adaptor or somthing? Or is this just the wrong year pipe for my bike? Did honda make the exhaust port smaller or somthing after 02? Please help! :thumbsup:

the pipe you have is probebly the one, were the male end is on the cylinder(its an exhuast flange)

and the one you have, the male end is on the pipe.

are there o-rings on the outside of the header on the pipe you have?

Probably, it looks like there was o-rings, but there is just two groves there instead, maybe thats where the o-rings go? I thought maybe there was a flange thing that clipped on or somthing.. I guess not!

I know your bike is a CR250. I do a lot with CR80s and CR85s, I know on them they changed the head design in 2005. 1996 - 2002 CR80 and 2003 - 2004 CR85 had the head with the male end and the pipe had the female end. Required a gasket over the exhaust flange. Resulted in a lot of leakage around the exhaust flange. 2005 - 2007 CR85s had the female head and the male pipe. This has 2 O-rings on the pipe. Better seal than the previous style. Not sure when or if the 250s changed also.

      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
