Ashmahn posted a topic in XR250R & XR400RHey all, it's great find a forum dedicated to these great bikes! Just hoping someone might be able to shed some light on a query i have. I recently purchased a second hand '92 XR250R frame to replace mine which was fairly dinged up and a bit rusty. I dropped it straight off at the powder coaters and it wasn't until i was transferring all the parts over that i noticed differences in the fuel tank mounts. I've looked everywhere for pictures but haven't been able to find any the same as this. Both my old and new frame have the same 8 digit prefix on the frame number, suggesting to me that they should both be XR250r's. Did the 250R's come out with metal fuel tanks? Is that what this is?? I've circled the mounts on the picture below. If anyone could shed some light on this it would be great. Ashley.
