Both of us know nothing about 2-strokes. Kind of a mutual handicap.
I wanted and RD for awhile, but we thought an R5 would be cheaper
and better for a couple reasons.
R5's are from 1972 and earlier.
In NY you can register a 1972 and older bikewith just a bill of sale.
So probably cheaper.
Also, we figured an R5 has more potential to be performance modified.
There are no rules against using an RD top end, even from a 400.
So really, any R5 or RD would be acceptable.
What does an RD250 have in common with the rest of the heard?
Is it just top end differences? Same Carbs, etc??
Seen a couple cheapies.
