    2002 cr250r repair manual

    Maybe try this link? The top one should be the 250 manual. It's a PDF by the way http://www.mediafire.com/?jx017vz60x4e3

    honda cr 250 won't start after rebuild .

    For compression tests you should hold the throttle wide open and kick 5 times consecutively. No way 40 psi can be right, hopefully wide open with 5 kicks will give a better reading.

    Sharp edges on bike.

    Plus it was a bail on a triple..... where the bike landed on top of him. That sounds like a bad crash even if the bike could have been "less sharp". Hope you recover quick though JR, can't imagine the quality of life when i can't even wipe my own ass!

    Sharp edges on bike.

    Sounds like you just got unlucky with the crash. They happen, but I don't think it's worth trying to cover the bike as there will always be something that can cut/damage you if given the chance. Unless you want to bubble wrap your body and the bike, that might work out!

    Stripped Screws (need some ideas)

    Hey guys thanks for the tips. I ended up drilling out the screw head to get a little room, and then using a lot of heat and a lot of force haha. Needless to say i'll be replacing these on reinstall. thanks again.
  7. Hey guys, so I'm digging in to this xr200 engine and hit a snag. The screw heads to remove a cover near the clutch were on really tight, and were a little stripped. Me and the old man ended up trying to remove them (further stripping them), and then ended up drilling into them and using a remover to try and loosen them. None of this has worked and we dug ourselves into a hole here, and I'm looking for anything else i can do before giving up and taking it somewhere. There's a pic below, thanks in advance

    02 cr250 Keihin carb swap

    And also if you order it from JD they will jet it to the conditions or style you tell them. Makes things easier when it comes almost perfectly jetted!

    02 cr250 compression reading

    I really don't think rings are necessary at 4 hours and 215 psi compression, that seems plenty good. It'll be ready for next season like it is, and you can save yourself the tear-down... Unless you truly want to boost up the compression even more

    +1 for this. Threw a 38mm airstriker in my 02 250 and it's fantastic. Bolts right in

    2001 XR200 problems!

    Got it! Thanks for the info fellas, valves don't look too good but the piston/cylinder seem to be alright. May have to split the cases and take a closer look at the crank...

    2001 XR200 problems!

    thanks for the replies. i have the top half of the head off, to where I can see the valves and cam. ill unbolt the tensioner and remove the chain and hopefully the rest of the head will come off. When i checked the valves they had some rust and did not look good, so I'm going to go ahead and say he didn't get all the water out . This keeps on looking worse and worse for his poor XR
