but I had to razz you guys a little
This weekend i got my 1992 cr250 running
after sitting still for 6 years!!!
And It's been out in the weather for the
last 2 years as well. Honestly back in January
I was going to send it to the dump. Cause I was
gonna get me a new bike this spring.
Anybody criging yet
I pulled the carb off tore it completely down
cleaned all the parts. Cleaned out gas tank.
gave her fresh mix gas. Oil chain tire press etc...
The 5th kick fellas !!! she fired up like 6 years
ago was yesterday. Now the kicker I was out there
pulling 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear wheelies!!!
The only thing that didn't work was the back
Now I don't know what I'm gonna do with this thing
I never expected it to ever run again most less
be this strong
BTW - I double posted on the red side of the board. I know it ain't no thumper so don't start!

I would love to be racing vintage MX on that thing... it was a great bike... 79 or 80 model or something of that era...
Nice to hear that you have a spare bike for your buddies when they want to come around and ride...

These early 90 CR's were famous for their engine performance.
If I could find a decent 94/93 CR250...???

I've heard of that "vintage mx" but know nothing
about it. How old does the bike have to be. I've been thinking about it the last couple days and may just make this a project bike. Might learn something while re-doing it all, and if I screw it up it's not like screwing up the new Yammer 426
NH Kevin -
I agree - My 426 ain't got noting on it power wise
and if I hadn't done a few mods to the 426 the old red bird could have easily kicked it's but!! Sad but true
HAHAHA - I gotta tell you though it's like sitting
on a chainsaw. My significant other, she'd love riding that thing!
On second thought I better not let her do that or I'll never get a chance at her
