frame options for 1991 CR250

Recommended Posts

Can someone point me to a thread that shows which frames will interchange. If not can anyone tell me what year cr250 frames are compatible with the 1991 model.

Mine either needs replaced or repaired.......and I don't trust my welding for track duty.

I was at the dealer today and looked at some parts Fiche. Looked like the engine cases were the same from 89-91. So I figured at least those would interchange. The guy at the dealer thought 92-96 would work too but we could not verify it.

According to the OEM parts fiche here in the TT store, frames go as follows:

85-89

90-91

92-96 etc..

Now, I know that 92-01 engines are interchangeable, but I am not sure about the older bikes.

UPDATE

I was offered a 1997 roller for very reasonable money. Has anyone ever tried the older motor in the aluminum frame????

I would just have a competent welder fix your existing frame.

Not that I think he should try to go that route with his engine, but why would he be sorry? Have you had a lot of experience with the 97-99 aluminum frames? A lot of people have them and aren't sorry about it.

97s are not all that bad. I have one that i have set up and dialed in prety good. I just got an 02 250 and now it is pretty much set up and runnig strong. Now the 02 is for sure a better bike, but i honesty think that most of the people i ride with could not tell the difference. The 97 is a realy nice bike, just no quite nice as the 02.

      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
