Well it might go back where it belongs on a XR250R!
As long as he promises to keep it out from under trailers!

Great thread, great bike!

Thanks

This has been a great read. I have fond memories of zipping across the Socal desert on an old XR250R. You just can't kill em..

Argh!



Just took the skid plate off and saw this dent again. It's kind of annoying. What should I do? Forget about it? My roommate has a welder and I've been thinking of things I could do but maybe I shouldn't.... Could it just be filled in instead of replacing that portion?

Rode the XR in Moab this past weekend.. It performed flawlessly! Can't say the same about myself though:

Nice pictures Olas. Looks like it was a good time.

How do you like the trials tire on the back?

Thanks, Dustin. The trials tire i'm using is a DOT Pirelli MT43. I am now a believer in the trials tires. So far i've used it on ice, mud, snow, sand, rocks and roots, and dry/wet pavement. It does best on the rocks and roots, traction like no other. I ran 18 psi front and back while I was out in Moab and never had any traction issues. Having the trials tire on the back definitely helps make the bike feel more "planted" or controlled (you wouldn't be able to tell by watching the vid I posted though ) as opposed to a regular dirt tires and makes it much easier to pick a line and stay in it. My suspension is pretty fresh as well so that may have some play in the control factor.

In the sand the tire works well, it's definitely easier to control the faster you go. In muddy conditions the MT43 does feel a bit squirly. On the ice I rode a few weeks back, it seemed to stick well as long as you didn't wack the throttle open suddenly.

If you plan on riding rocky, technical trails then i'd definitely recommend it.
