My 1994 CR250R

Recommended Posts

A little background.

Got this bike about 2 years ago or so. $500.

Life happened, new baby and a move from San Jose to Folsom. Bike has pretty much just sat. I think I've had 2 or 3 rides on it while at our family ranch.

That brings me to today. Finally got my bike and my son's 50 up to Folsom from the Bay Area.

I drained the tank, went thru the carb (it finally idles), new plug, fresh premix and she's back!

I spent about an hour today with Simple Green and Zep Orange degreaser, a little armor all, and this is what she looks like.

I am excited to finally ride somewhere other than our ranch. We now live 5 minutes from Prairie City/Hangtown. Should be fun to get out on some trails with my kiddo as well.

I am a beginner by any measure (my first real bike), so if anything in my pics stands out to you guys as a red flag/maint issue, please let me know.

Also, I know its popular for people to put 95/96 shrounds on the earlier bikes. Can you tell me if I have the correct 94s or the 95/96s.

I am going to order all new plastic as soon as the wallet will allow. Thinks about going back to red, but not sure if I go Flo Red, or the newer,darker red.

I cannot express how HELPFUL the board has been to me while trying to figure all this out. You people are great.
















One last thing, does this sticker mean anything to anyone? I treid to Google it, but came up empty

Looks great. Personally, I'd get some wider pegs, but that's me...

Zep orange degreaser rules!

Bike looks good. but you definitely need to replace or at least limber up that chain really well...I see some kinks.

Have fun while you are young.

Yeah, I was thinking new chain/sprockets in the next few weeks.

And remove that rear caliper guard. The only thing it will do is overheat the fluid by blocking cooling air to the caliper. Do it. Now!

That bike, or it's forks at least, was used in the 1997 AMA National Hare Scrambles championships.

Awesome bike. I like the old steelies. Better soak that chain in gas to clean it up. I went on ebay and found some used fastways footpegs from a yz and put them on my '95 and they are awesome. Nice job on your bike. I just started riding with my son last year, he was 8 and i was 39. Good fun, glad i did it. Now i have 2 cr's. I don't know who has more fun, my son or me!

      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.

      -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

      -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

      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
