Calling all CR brainiacs! (Pic)

Recommended Posts

I had a little incident during my race yesterday...

230681_1725058491861_1400342540_31467248_7318353_n.jpg

Smacked a rock and took out the chainguide. I need answers and opinions guys!

1. Will other year swingarms fit my 2000 CR250?

2. Anyone know of a '00-'01 CR being parted out?

3. Do you think an aluminum guy can fab and weld tabs to hang a new guide? My swingarm is in great shape otherwise!

Any other helpful thoughts? I gotta try and put this thing together by June 4th.

That happened to my old 2000 cr250 also. Any swingarm from 2000-2001 cr125/250 will work. I believe the only difference between the 125 and 250 is just the dogbone and linkage. I am not sure if other years will fit but those will for sure. When you get a new swingarm get rid of the aluminum chain guide and just run the plastic piece that is inside the guard. It will flex with the hits and the return to its original position without breaking the mount off the swingarm. I have been running my cr's that way for over 10years withouit any problems or chain derailments

Personally I would by a new guard and take it with the swing arm to a shop along with the wrecked one. The shop should be able to fab up simple tabs and weld them on there using the old ones a guide. I would think that would be cheaper than getting a used swing arm.

HA HA! I just did the same thing to my 2000 CR125 three weeks ago. I got lucky and found a new swingarm already. My damaged swingarm has some custom fabwork. Have not decided yet to have it welded or fab the new swingarm. If I dont hurry i'll be cutting into riding season though. Good luck with yours, let us know what you do.

That sucks, just broke mine on a 1986, but duct taped it back and it's as good as new!! xD

      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
