  1. I think my bars or stearing might be tweaked, when I'm riding the handlebars are not straight with my direction of travel. The bars don't look bent, no marks anywhere on them. I tried the old stratle the front tire and jerk the bars to straighten things out but no luck. Any suggestions on what to do next?
  2. Does anyone know the difference between the Protaper Henery Reed bend and the stock bars on a 2002 CR250R? My bike had the Protaper Henery Reed bars on it when I bought it and I'm not loving them too much.
  3. My shroud bolts won't come out, they just spin and spin with some effort of course. I see there are nuts formed into the gas tank that are turning. Any tips on how to get these little pricks out and how to make a real repair so it doesn't happen again?
  4. Good call on the suspension, the guy I bought it from had it setup for a 190 lbs rider. I was 190 once then I turned 16... lol Any tips on setup for a fat guy? 230. Also thinking about getting the Airstriker from JD but I need to learn more about that carb first. I have to say this is the greatest place to just spend time reading, you guys a fantastic help!
  5. Well I pulled the trigger on this 02, pretty excited!
  6. Could some please help me decode this engine? I've tried and failed many times now.
  7. I'm pretty sure that I'll go with the 02, there are a couple in the area that are in good shape. I've read a lot about the engine needing help, can someone point me in the right direction to start looking at what I should do? I've been beating the search engine to death this evening.
  8. I haven't owned a Honda for a long time now, last one I had I bought new in 1980 CR250R, yup and old guy here. I'm going to look at a couple Cr's. one is an 2000 and the other is a 2002. I'm hoping to get some ti[s from the experts here on what to look for and what the main differences are. Thanks
  9. Hi, New guy here, thanks to everyone who supports the forum. I picked up what I was told was a 2002 kx250 last Wednesday, its a beater so I planed on fixing it up and riding the old 2track logging roads of norther WI, I have no intention on racing this bike, way to old now. I had a chance to clean it up yesterday after work and made a couple of unwelcome discoveries. The seller told me it was an 02, had a small fuel leak and a broken clutch cable. Seemed easy enough, so I bought it for 700. I've been waiting for the cable so I haven't ridden the bike yet. After the clean up I discovered the cases where cracked and had the typical JB Weld smeared on them, so no fuel leak it all oil baby. I decided to get the vin off the bike to make sure I was looking for the right parts to make the repair. Thanks to all the hard work for forum members it was easy to decode the vin, turn out its a 1998! well I'm pissed. My question is what is the difference between these 2 years? and what would you do? I have a bill of sale stating it a 2002 so legally I'm entitled to a full refund.
