Stuff like that will be discontinued by all the manufacturers. The beauty of the older RM's is that Suzuki made a lot of them prior to '84, so good used spares are easy to come by.

Hey Justin, I saw that you were looking for a NOS tank. I have one that I'm considering parting with if you are interested in it.

A buddy of mine has a ultra low hour '03 that's bone stock. The power delivery is very "electric", with very little hit. I would suggest that you look for an 03 if that's the type of power you are looking for. The 02 had some airbox sealing issues that ... more »

The 02-04 CR250 is under powered and handles great. The 05-07 CR250's are definitely not underpowered, but they aren't easy to ride either. That can be easily fixed.

More than likely, your measurements are off because nobody makes a 66.0mm piston for the 93 CR250. Turn the piston over are look for the ART marking. If you see it, order a OEM Honda piston/rings/wristpin/bearing/clips/gaskets for your bike and call ... more »

Ditto. In 40 years of riding, No-toil is the only oil that I have ever used that allowed dirt/silt to pass through a filter. I like the convenience, but I need a heavy duty oil that will never allow dirt to pass through the filter on my bikes. Belray ... more »

Cool bike Jeff. 2-strokes are just plain fun. Even 32yo 2-strokes.
Added reply in a thread I would like to see the AMA do something about tracks 10/10/2014 11:14 AM
It also depends on the composition of the dirt. On a soft dirt track, if you put the jump face too close to the corner, the jump face often develops kickers from bikes accelerating off the lip. Another problem with having a jump face close to the corner ... more »

He swapped out on a little 2' roller that's about 30' before the face of an easy 80' table. Unfortunately he was thrown face first into the jump face. The speeds in that area are 25-30mph. I think racing an unfamiliar 450 was probably the primary contributor ... more »
