    Cr250 full woods bike opinions

    I have ridden a new 2019 yz250x and i loved it, but i already own the honda. I rebuilt the entire bike top to bottom last winter and have $3500 including all the parts i listed. I also have an 18 inch rim for it now. I dont need it purfect, just something for woods riding every now and again.

    Cr250 full woods bike opinions

    I was toying with the idea of trading the ol cr up for a newer yz250, but decided to just put the bike on the trails in light of its reliability. I have always liked it in the woods and think it should be awesome after the mods

    Cr250 full woods bike opinions

    Right now im trying to get away without a revalve, but i might do it in the future. Truth be told, it only beats me up after 2 hours of straight riding non stop. Other than that, its not horrible to me

    Cr250 full woods bike opinions

    I dont ride to much after dusk, but it does happen occasionally especially when i go camping on it. As for the carb, it does fine as far as giving me the bottom end i need. Anyway, if i could find a cheaper alternative to an aftermarket stator, that would be great.

    Cr250 full woods bike opinions

    Hey guys, so i have recently decided to make my 01 cr250 my full time trail bike amd i want some advice as to some good mods for it. I would really like to have nice, tractorlike power for chugging up steep hills and the like. Here is a list of some of the stuff i already have for it -12 oz fww -new top end -clark oversized tank -fmf gnarly and spark arrester -12/48 gearing with renthal oring chain -bark busters -new rear tire -i have both boysene reeds and vforce reeds for it I would like to put a headlight on it too, but dont want to spend $200 on an aftermarket coil if i can help it. Another thing im curious about are torque spacers(whether they really do anything or not)Any advice would be appreciated

    Yz250, should i buy it?

    Yeah, i think i might pass it up. I still have an 01 cr250 that i rebuilt from the ground up, so im not hurting for a bike anyhow. I would just like to get myself on somethin newer, thats all. But, i can wait it out

    Yz250, should i buy it?

    Hey guys, im hoping that u guys can offer some advice as i know little about yz250s. Long story short, i looked at a 2007 yz250 this week for 2500.i have to make my decision by tomorrow afternoon or it gets sold to someone else. The bike looks nice and doesnt seem to have a terrible amount of hours on it(no boot scuffing on the clutch cover, not much scuffing on the shock reservoir)the bike also had good power and high compression. Here are some things that did feel worn out. -linkage bearings had a fair amount of play in them -front wheel bearings are bad -shock has a minor glaze of oil on the shaft -when i first started engaging the clutch, the bike stalled(felt like it would engage super quickly, dont know if thats normal on a yz or if its because it sat for the last 6 months Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks guys!

    01 cr250, keep or sell?

    Dangg,that thing is beautiful!!! And how in tje world did u shave 23 lbs off of that thing!? I would love to do all that to my bike, but the oem parts are starting to dry up which worries me. I dont wanna break something on the bike and find out i cant replace the part, then im screwed

    01 cr250, keep or sell?

    Idk if i would even get any action on it if i put it up for more than 3500. I might be able to get what i want for it if i list it in the spring though.

    01 cr250, keep or sell?

    i was thinking about listing it for 3500. it looks new. i also have all the original parts for it ,the title and all receipts for the new parts. still though, i wish i could just keep it along with a newer yz or sx

    01 cr250, keep or sell?

    Ik, ive got over 4k invested into it, i doubt ill get 2500 for it. Thats the main reason i wanna hang onto it. And, as i mentioned before, its bullet proof
