What makes the late model XR250R a good bike?

Recommended Posts

The '96 and later is a complete redesign, suspension, frame, engine, etc. better in every respect than previous models. Best modification is to get the suspension resprung/revalved for your weight and type of riding, makes a big improvement in handling. Next thing is a big bore, 77 or 78mm, more torque throughout the RPM range. If you haven't run out of cash at this point, spring for a pumper carb for instant throttle response.

# one reason is that it's bullet proof, you just can't beat the bang for the buck. Over time is the true pay off. Yes it's heavy, slow throttle response, suspension is old stuff but all that can be improved to suit the rider and like old tennis shoes, you just can't give it up till it's dead.
