  1. I recently bought a 1999 Honda XR250R that had been mildly modified by the prior owner(s). It came mounted with an oversized, aftermarket tank but the seller threw in a red XR400R tank he had in the garage. I wanted to use a smaller, OEM sized tank for day to day riding so I decided to try to mount the 400 tank as I could not find an OEM 1996+ XR250R tank within my budget. After I used the red 400 tank, someone on TT sold me a white 400 tank and I ended up using the white tank as it matched my plastic. I don't know what vintage either tank is. I asked on TT, searched online, etc. to determine if an XR400R tank would fit on an XR250R. The findings were diverse, ranging from absolutely not to it would fit fine. Some findings were based, in part, on the fact that some aftermarket tank makers used the same tank for both models. So, here are my own findings: Does the tank fit and function? Yes. Is it perfect and precise? No. Does it look like it fits? Yes. Is it secure and solidly mounted? Yes. Did it mount right on without work? No. Was it alot of work? No. Any issues with the petcock, seat front attachment, securing hardware, etc.? See below. Yes, some people will still say that you absolutely cannot mount a 400 tank on a 250, etc., etc. I won't debate the issue, I'll simply share my own experiences and you can decide for yourself if it works. Here's what my bike looked like with the red 400 tank mounted. Here is how it finally ended up, with the white 400 tank mounted. The XR250R uses this "collar" (PN 83119-GT4-000) to attach the retention band. It may also be used to lock in the front part of the seat: The XR400R uses this "stay" (PN 17525-KCY-670) to attach the retention band and seat: The retention band (PN 17516-MN1-670) is used to snug down the rear of the tank, and the cable loop may be intended as a leash to keep the tank from moving too much in a crash. What appears to be a wrapping of electrical tape is the way it comes new: The front of my seat has a recess that helps lock it to the back of the tank: When I tried to use the "collar" on the white tank, the seat would not lock into the collar (# 1) and the rubber of the retention band was very tight (# 2). It would have worked, but I thought I could improve on it: The seat recess fit very well on to the "mushroom" on the back of the stay so I decided to use it instead of the collar. The stay bolted right on to the tank and fit into the recess molded into the tank. I liked the stay but the band seemed a little too loose: On both the red and white 400 tanks, I tried the 250 forward mounting hardware and they bolted right up to the tanks. The forward mounting plates (PN 17522-KCE-670) are the same on both the 1999 250 and 400. The front of the tank mounts perfectly to the attachment points on the frame: With the front of the tank firmly mounted to the frame and sitting on the XR250R's rubber tank bumpers I noticed the bottom of the petcock was very close to the top of the engine. The 250 and 400 use very different rubber mounting bumpers between the tank and the frame. I took some rubber and padded the area between the top of the frame and the tank. This tightened up the retention band (# 1), cushioned the area between tank and frame (# 2) and moved the petcock well clear of the engine: Is it a perfect fit? No, there is a slight gap between the tank and seat front: However, the gap is not that noticeable IMHO and everything seems tight and secure: So, I would say that the 400 tank fits fine and is secure as shown. I can live with the gap. If a 1996+ XR250R tank became available at a great price I might consider getting it but I can't see that it would be a huge improvement over what I have. I am very happy with the look, fit and feel of my Honda XR250R with an XR400R tank sitting on it! Yes, I know this is something of a duplicate thread, but I wanted to show the procedure for the benefit of anyone thinking about using a 400 tank but unsure if it could be done. Additional info: No problems with switching out petcocks. When I looked at the petcock, I noticed the tube-shaped filter was disintegrating and the gasket was dried out, so I ordered replacements. Bolt holes lined up and bolts fit fine but the fuel line had to be replaced with a slightly longer one (but this may be because the fuel line was for the larger IMS tank which put the petcock a little lower and off to the side). I used some extra fuel line as the vent hose for the tank, easy way to keep some spare hose handy. Be sure to check the functioning of the petcock while you have it off, good time to clean it up and be sure you get full flow. If you replace the tube filter, be sure to carefully place the little black grommet (comes with the filter) on the top of the brass filler tube. An online check shows that a 2000 Honda XR400R tank has a 2.5 gallon capacity including a 0.4 gallon reserve. I do not know what year my tanks are from, so YMMV.

    Pretty affordable and reliable. Very fast and durable for it's age. Very hard to find parts for and the part you do find can be pretty expensive.

    As this is Vietnam, and registering anything over 175cc can be tricky and expensive, fake VINs and paperwork are standard. As a result, details are a bit sketchy, but I was told it's a 2001. Only had this a short time, but I already love it. It has an electric start and goes well, although I find 1st gear a bit short. Just put on the Polisport Halo light and fairing, as the old one was tatty. It looks a lot better now and the light works well. I use it for commuting, so mostly road work, although some of the roads here are not the best! Will no doubt take it on a few trips around 'Nam in the future. Future plans include new plastic panels and fender, a 277cc big bore kit, opening up the intake box and grinding off the welds in the headers, Kibble-White valves, and either tweaking the carb or getting an upgrade (worth it?). That reflective tape, while a good safety feature, has got to go!

    Honda XR250R (2002)

    The XR250R, simple, bulletproof, and just a blast to ride. These bikes were manufactured by Honda from 1979 to 2004. The simple motor design means that you will still see bone stock XRs driving around today with piston rings stock from the factory. Its not often with newer race bikes to go a year without changing the rings and adjusting valves. These bikes are bulletproof. As long as you check your oil before every ride, change oil and filters every little while, and keep your air filter clean your set! The XR comes with a 249cc 4 valve 6 speed kick-start only motor, I am completely satisfied with the engine on the XR. The power is predictable and easy to control. The 6 speed gearbox is nothing short of great. The nice and low first gear allows for crawling over rough terrain, and as I have found found is great when following fourwheelers through tight trails. The 6th gear is an awesome addition to the transmission which is very convenient for cruising down dirt roads. The XR is not too light in today's standards but this gives it "tractorability" and allows the bike to feel planted on difficult terrain and allows for much improved traction. My only complaint with this bike would be the carburetor tends to flood the engine easily, and can be a pain to start when tipped over. The modifications done to this bike are... Stage 1 hotcams, Cycra handgaurds, Factoryfx gripper seat, and it has an 02 CR250R front end.

    Just picked up this '95 XR250R. Looks spray-paint horrible and I'm going to clean it up. Although, it is difficult to find plastics. Nonetheless, I own an XR.

    1984 Al Baker's XR's Only XR265R It had everything Al Baker offered at the time except large fins. I sold it in 1997 and it is still running to this very day. Those of you with a keen eye and good memory may recognize the dark green "Al Baker Triple Rate" shock spring. The unbelievably strong engine used to eat up 4.60-17 IRC VE-33 rear tires like mad. It revved to infinity. I am very lucky and very proud to have owned one. RIP Al Baker...

    Sold! Had this bike for years. This was a great bike! You could not tear it up for anything. Even though it's a trail bike, I took it to the track several times and jumped it. Bottomed out the front forks, but it was still worth it.

    Vintage but competitive street-legal enduro. Keep the filters clean and oil changed and it keeps on ticking at full power.

    Awesome bike! Super reliable, easy maintenance and is great on gas mileage since I use the bike to commute to work. When I hit the dirt or trails it's easy to maneuver and has ample power when needed.
