    90's XR250L

    Only made from 91 to 96. Very hard to find. Took me 4 months and you gotta have the cash in your pocket.

    Can I use this oil?

    Canada's Motorcycle is great for BC dudes since you only pay 5% tax and free shipping. I bought a Kenda K270 there and boots, pants, etc... Canadian Tire 20w50 moto oil or Mobil 1 15w50 is good for a BC XR250L.

    xr 250 electric start?

    After a drop (and trust me I am a pro at it lately), leave it down, turn the fuel off and let the carb drain. After it stops peeing, pick it up and it will start in 3 kicks. Then turn the fuel back on.

    89 honda xr250r oil issues

    I put an ounce of Seafoam in my crankcase and I swear I am using less oil now. I must have had dirty lifters or something.

    Rear Tire - XCMH vs Trakmaster II?

    Front: IRC TR8 Battle Rally. Great on highway and in sand. Gonna last forever. Rear: Kenda K270. Thinking Kenda K772 Parker DT next. I hear the Kenda K760 wears too fast.

    Do you have a rim lock on the rear?

    For Canada, Canada's Motorcycle. Free shipping over $69 and only 5% tax if you live outside Quebec. Good tire prices.
  9. I just got a new fuel screw set and my bike is purring like a kitten. Before, the idle was erratic etc.

    They are made from old left over parts from the Honda factories. At least the ones in South East Asia are.
