Its awful peppy for such a small bike, even with a big(fat) dude like myself. I've been riding my bicycle more then I've ridden my 250. I'm trying to get into shape for my wedding in June. Every pound lost means that 250 will go faster right?

My plans for mods:
1) Cyrca handguards
2) Whipps bashplate
3) Clarke 3.8gal tank

Future mods:
1) Change the rear tail light
2) Nice little rack
3) Quiet her down
4) Raise the bars/new bars
5) Suspension set-up/stiffer springs
6) ???

A Cnote is a good deal for that tank!

If it'd fit my bike i'd take it,but mines to old,it'd have to be 96 or newer.

Thanks, Duke. As long as you can also handle 6 months of snow it's paradise...!

Question 82 Xr250r

Just picked one up. Pretty clean, starts easy and run great. I took some pics but I am having a hard time uploading. File size & dimensions meet the requirements but uploads always fail. Tried in FF & IE. Any tips?

Here are links to the '82 ....

Still waiting for my first shake down ride.

I bought this bike with the intention to chase my son around on a family farm. I bought him a similar age & condition PW 80.

The front boot are separated from the lower shock. Any ideas how to fix ?

Thanks!
