03-07 cr250

Recommended Posts

What is the truth, the real skinny, to get the 03 to run as well as the 07? Or is this all a bunch of hullabaloo? Have found a real low hr 03 and will use it for woods/HS. Thanks.

get it. there is not much difference between 03 and 07, just some minor porting differences which you can have done to it for cheap.

02-07 all very similar. Minor porting, gearing and other small changes like mounts, bolt patterns, and airbox, pipe, etc. Properly tuned 03 will make same hp and torque as a properly tuned 07. Just remember every bike is different...but all 2 strokes are alike............ they whoop on 4T's...:thumbsup:

the 04+ are better due to suspension and carb mods but they are very similar.

the 02/03 had problems with the airbox being sealed so make sure you get that sorted.

not sure if the 03 had this problem, but the 02 had a problem with the mounting bolt on the frame cracking where the subframe clevis bolt or whatever went through.

these are solid bikes and they hold up great as long as you take care of them.

I own both models & IMHO there isn't much differnce in the 2. In stock form the powerbands are opposites with the 03 model having a better mid to top vs. the 07 having better low to mid pull but signing off sooner up top. The 03 has cyl. & head mods & is now a rocket in comparison. It doesn't take much to wake these motors up. You can't go wrong with either model & with some fine tuning.

      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
