I did the screwdriver to the ear thing to the entire motor and the sound is definitely coming from the clutch. Pulling in the clutch doesn't make a difference, it did quiet down after a few miles though.

I have a spare clutch basket, though it is used, that i'm going to test out and see if that quiets it down. I really don't think it's the output shaft or bearings since I inspected everything and replaced all the bearings when I was in there...The clutch and clutch basket were not though. Hope it's as simple as a new bushing or clutch basket though...

By the way, the chatter comes and goes - it's not there all the time, it's random as far as I can tell.

Thanks for your suggestions! Keep 'em coming...

Long shot,,,,,,,,,,What oil you use'n??
Your not use'n a high miles one??..
The moly in some high mile oils,will fuck up clutch plates quick!!!!
Just a thought.
Dignostics is the hardest part of mechanics!!!!
Hows your primary chain tention??Is that little plastic block shot?
Maybe the clutch springs have lost the proper tention.

Anyone know the generic bearing and seal part numbers for the rear wheel of a 2004 xr250r? I'm looking to replace them and understand you can get them at a standard bearing shop if you know the numbers.
Thx!

Using Shell Rotella T 15w40. Primary chain is brand new, tensioner is working ok. Clutch springs are within spec. I found the clutch basket to be out of spec by .004". I replaced it with a spare I had that is within spec and the motor is now "chatter free". Smooth as butta! I can't wait to take it out on some trails. Only thing holding me back is a XR's only speedo drive replacement unit.

Thanks for your help!

Well, the bike is running awesome! Now I need to focus on making it street legal. It's currently plated but needs a horn to be legal. Those bulb bicycle horns won't work because it needs to be louder than that. What are my options here?

Hose clamp,canned airhorn!

Or one of those loud speakers with the key pad,for the Dukes of hazard horn.It'd come in handy to yell at the old ladys in Lincons too.

That would be sweet but it wouldn't last long! I think i'll go hornless - for now at least.

im still in the process of reading thru this whole thread but thought i would chime in with my xr250. i picked it up a few months ago for 250.00 bucks off of c/l
from the orig owner. (the guy had tears when i loaded it up) its Been a great bike for me so far.Its all stock except for the super trap and some jetting of course. she is a 86 but dont judge the lady by her age.

This past weekend i let my ole lady trail ride it for one day while i rode her xr200 and she fell in love with the 250 and how capable it is. So she sold her 200 and i picked up a xr400. Im so happy we get to keep the 250 around its a blast in the trails and is so agile. i just hope my 400 will be as nice as the 250 is.

Plans for the 250 this winter are a baja designs kit and a plate. and a tear down and repaint/restore for much of the bike. it is in great shape but the frame could use some new paint and new plastics wouldnt hurt.

the xr250 mid flight. she bottomed out on this one


think that rear shock needs some attention?


the trusty 250 with the "new" 400

Tire size question

Quick question, has anyone tried a D606 130/90x17 on their XR? Before
I start popping beads, I thought I would ask. Will it fit?

Are you sure its a 17"?

I thought that all the XR's were 18" rear rims.

Actually it's a '86XL250R, but the XR's of that era were also 17's.

Well valvecrusher, maybe you can answer a couple of questions about my
86XL250R, since it looks like you have an extensive stable......
1. Will a D606 130/90x17 fit, or what's the next best thing?
2. Will a 86XR250R clutch case fit on the XL? I want to install an XR oil
cooler and am unsure as to where to drill and tap the XL cover.
