1989 Cr 250

Recommended Posts

The front forks were very harsh.

Yup, the front forks were the weak part of that bike. Also in 1989 they still had magnesium water pump covers. Replacement covers are now made of aluminum.

So check the water pump cover and the radiators, they may be plugged with magnesium.

'89 was the first year for the aluminum clutch cover.

it doesn't need a new crank, needs some bearings though. aactually needs almost all of the bearings :)... need to find a cheap clutch basket.

i only have about 6-700 to spend on this :/ right now the engines in a box. it already had the top end done on it and has a new piston with about 10 minutes on it. so when im done it will have a totally new engine. other than that it needs just a few random parts. Jean micheal Bayle replica is on the way :lol:

Yikes-hey, when you get tired of the snow and you want to come down to the sunny beaches of Florida-let me know and I'll pay you to bring some Walleye with you! Used to go fishing for them in N.W. Ontario @ Sioux Lookout, Frog Rapids Camp.:lol:
