CR250 Wannabe Enduro Build

What's up TW. I figured this would be a good place to keep track of my progress/future upgrades. Yeah i could go to a motocross forum and do this but i like TW better




Current state:
And Taco photobombing


Make: Honda
Year: 1998
Model: CR250


CurrentModifications:
  • Freshly rebuilt top end
  • JD Jet kit
  • FMF Turbinecore 2 silencer
  • Tusk D-Flex hand guards
  • Renthal 13t countershaft sprocket
  • TAG Metals 51t rear sprocket
  • Renthal 520 chain
  • Dunlop MX51's
  • Acerbis black fenders, shrouds, and fork guards


WishList:
  • FMF Gnarly pipe
  • Pro Taper Evo oversized bars
  • Renthal Intellilever clutch perch
  • Moose skidplate
  • Moose pipe guard
  • New front and side number plates
  • Heavier-duty hand guards

How it looked when i bought it; aside from FMF silencer:




First riding season




Then when the dreaded Wyoming winter rolled around i decided it was time for a good cleanup and rebuild.

During the tear down




Motor back in it



Bought a JD jet kit and got it tweaked a little better for the altitude/temperature. JD jet kits are worth every penny!

First day of riding after winter. No trails yet since the mountain is still shut down. But luckily there is a track about 5 minutes from work





My most recent mishap. Last season one of my chain adjustment bolts snapped off so i resorted to the lovely little "Swingarm Buddy" kit, which worked ok for a while. Until the other side decided to do the same and that bolt snapped as well. I bought a used swingarm off of ebay for $80 bucks and slapped it on there.

Finally made it up the mountain on the bike for the first time this year. Jetting needs a little tweaking but runs waaayyy better than it did before. Also need to tweak my suspension back to my trail setup. After rebuilding i had set everything back to stock and then made adjustments for our local track, so needless to say it's riding like the broad side of a 2x4 on the rough mountain trails. Overall a great day!
