    Cr250 full woods bike opinions

    I see. Yes different areas of the country might require different equipment.

    Honestly I’ve raced with the worst possible kickstand- XR’s that stick straight back. Even with top of rear sprocket should be fine for most riders. Not as cool looking maybe...

    Cr250 full woods bike opinions

    I am not very familiar with the power output on the 01’ but I I chose a big bore 285 on my 03’ and I feel like it was a good choice for increasing low end power. It has about the same peak power as my brothers 12’ 250SX but revs a little slower. Hands down get the suspension done the fun factor is incredible. I’m running 06’ CR forks and 06 CRF250R rear shock with a modified clevis (to fit linkage) valved by factory connection for offroad and it’s amazing. Tom at millennium technologies says they can do a lot with your cylinder Reed engine’s cylinder to improve off road performance. Not so much on my case reed engine.

    I just watched a few minutes of the video OF posted. I can’t even watch any more it... so keyed up to race. I’ve got a top and bottom end kit on order, lost the water on my CR250 a couple weeks ago and melted the piston. I hope I get to meet you guys at least once this winter!

    For all CR TPS users

    So on the RC valve equipped Honda, Theoretically speaking, if you changed the TPS output range you could change the signal to the powervalve module and customize the powervalve turn on point? Actually a series rehostat might be nice on the handlbar to modify the signal to the RC valve module. I have an 03' and the mid range hit is huge when you downshift and apply light to moderate throttle. I'd like to soften it and I presumed the 04-07 system would help but it sound like one user above is not happy with his. I am an off-road rider not moto-X. Like to see if there are any CR riders out there anymore who are knowledgeable about this system.

    Desert Tires

    Thanks man. My brother runs X30’s back home. Anyway, the terrain is way different out here. Even rocks and sand are different than rocks and sand back home.

    Desert Tires

    So you run 90/90 out here? I’m on an 80/100. More resistant to pinch flats? @dlock5 we are out west for a few months..

    arizona Desert Tires

    I am new to riding in the desert and the tiny gravel called sand around here. I run Dunlop AT-81's back home because they work well in a variety of conditions and don't climb mud ruts. The one thing I don't like is that with the narrower tread profile on the AT-81 it doesn't grip as well in hard leaning turns- since the tread doesn't wrap around the carcass as far as say, an MX-52 for example. This makes me wonder if I might "skate" less on the BLM trails if I ran a different tire. What tires are popular out here and why?

    Thank you for the heads up! I don’t think we can make it this weekend- hopefully I’ve located a used engine for my truck and will be installing it this weekend. Lost a cylinder coming out of Flagstaff last month on my duramax. But if not maybe we will make it.

    Honda CR250R (2003)

    My CR250 is a 285 big bore. Torquey on bottom with almost unlimited power on tap on top, but sower revving than a stock 250. I bought it for offroad and harescrambles use.

    Do they ever do staggered starts? We have had to split the class into two lines one minute apart when the starting area was too small.

    I’ve been through some of those 20 bike starts and they can be very interesting. Especially if you don’t have e-start and it takes more than one kick to get going on a dead engine start. Good luck!
