Added reply in a thread Worth it to upgrade to a 250f? 8/2/2020 8:30 PM

250f. For years I was 2 strokes (well, my whole riding career so 11 years), honestly, never raced a 4 stroke. I bought a 2011 CRF250R in boxes for $700 because if I can own one I’m going to be able to rebuild it. Honestly, other than the extensive wiring, ... more »

Getting there. Finally assembled for the most part. Waiting on some odds and ends, hopefully all will be here this week. After that it’s adding personal preference items.

Current stage right now. Need a new linkage, the one I have now is seized horribly to the point I’m going to look at other options. A brand new OEM one with bearings is $150. Figures with bearings, taking these old ones out and putting new ones in I

Depends on the district. Here in WNY is completely fucked. C class here kids have been in the class 3-5 years racing 95% of the weekends, winning and consistently finishing top 3, just enough to stay beneath the requirement to get bumped up. I think ... more »

Cleaned the frame up, got the motor assembled.

This is where I ran into an issue. I’m so OCD at times too. So upon spending an hour trying to get this thing to TDC either the cam wouldn’t line up or the ... more »

Onward to crank installation, it’s finally time!

The piston I actually installed backwards because I assumed based on the markings, the “dot” goes towards the exhaust, but it actually goes towards the intake, felt ... more »

After that, I then installed all the bearings within the motor. I actually bought a Tusk Bearing Puller and it worked wonders! Little MAP gas and froze the bearings, all of them were done in under 15 minutes.

Now with bike. Never have I ever rebuilt a 4 stroke. I owned a 2016 RMZ250 for a few months but then sold it with 15 hours on it. So this is my first crack at them. Been riding since I was 10-11 years old and only have rode/raced 85s/125s/250s. I figured

This is my 2020 project for the year. I bought 2011 CRF250R for $500 in boxes. I told myself I wanted a complete basket case and restore it to its former glory. For some reason, this body style of Honda’s has always been my favorite. I bought this bike

Wow, what a perspective! I just can’t risk getting hurt. Plus I’ve had more bike troubles this year than I ever had with the few times I’ve rode. I don’t know if it’s a sign or something. My YZ’s powervalve pin fell out 1 month ago, now I’m just starting ... more »
