Back in 1992 my cousin Chris bought one of these a couple years old. It looked very close to the pictured bike.

We stripped the bike of all the street items, to lighten up and not damage when bike acts up by hitting the Terra Firma.

We spent a weekend in the Uwharrie National Forrest on the early 90's ORV Trail System there, which by the way was at that time much better than present worn out/over abused 2000's trail system. The System was being maintained by the North Carolina Trail Riders (NCTR) up until 93. When SETRA was allowed in, that was the end of a "Great Trail System for Motorcycles". especially. 

That XR250L went almost everywhere throughout Uwharrie with only a few issues due to the on/off road tires(It was wet that day due to recent rain) that would not provide adequate mud traction. The bike suspension did okay for low speed trail speed, such as single rack. The Suspension was easy to outride (Bottom Stock) on high speed rough trails.

We might have added what we could to the stock rear spring preload to help out, but rider weight was 250#, which I'm sure would have meant need replacement with proper springs rated for rider's weight front and rear. Stripping the bike helped somewhat, but serious hard riding requires correct spring set up for safe riding High Speed outcomes! 

Otherwise what a great bike for some serious trail system rides!! 

Can't remember, but I assume shock was non piggyback or reservoir type, and swingarm was steel. Seems it did have rear disc brake though.

Excellent bike! Only problem would be the carburetor if you don't make the accelerator pump mod. Really good trail and street bike!
