Zak Merchant: You talk more about what you've done with the bike then reviewing it
HUEY1MARS: Stop using starter fuild !!! You start that and then it allways takes it
to. Valves need adjust ed and have the carb re built by a tec
Alex Chard: I'm 14 5'6 and ride one! You need a 450, or an xr 400
Bloodhound726: Will it be too high for me if I'm 5'10?
Snitchy1989: nice vid bro! i just bought one of these, completely in parts, for
100quid.. strictly for off-roading..
and yes its a 7 litre tank.. ive got the manual
maporules: The starting issue sounds like a valve problem to me. Also dunno if you had
the choke on but that idle is way to high!
nzl39: you need to adjust your valves mate, my 1998 xr 250 starts easy, easy start
, more like lazy start
depressedcoon: Nice vid bro!
Blurredman: Idle too high?
Joe Grove: Alright thanks for the info, but what do i have to do to get it street
legal?I want to ride it to school and stiff.
Joe Grove: Could i convert my stock 2002 xr250r into a dual sport offroad bike? If so
where should i look for one, and what kind?...Thanks
joeman3388: Google Baja Designs they sell kits for various bikes to make them street
legal. The major thing you will need is a title for your bike to start. If
you dont youre screwed in most states. Make sure to check your state and
local laws before you buy anything though cause they vary greatly. Here in
Ohio all you need is to bring your bikes title to the county clerks office
and ask them to change it to a motorcycle title. Take the title to the DMV,
get your plates and youre good to go!
Senthx: they will hold 50mph no problem, with mud tyres on a wet highway, 60 can be
a bit "frisky". They out perform a Yamaha Serrow off road, about the same
on the road.
thatmanfromyorkshire: They take you back the old bikes. my old man used easy start on his earth
movers when he was in business years back lol
Knackerzs38: Well... obviously who ever owned it before you took very crap care of it...
Mine starts 3 kick in cold mornings. But when it's warmed up! First kick
every time! :) And it's an '01 model! :)
Senthx: Dunno mate, I'm guessig that you don't live in the UK, as you say street
legal, not road legal. So, I don't know what rules you need to follow.
Here, I don't need lights, indicators, mirrors, just a brake light, and
road legal tyres pretty much,
MrGazmcfaz: I've been looking at an xr 250 instead of the 400 for next year as they go
for quite a lot less, what sort of mpg do they get? I'm not worried about
top speed so long as I comfortably hold 50/60 mph and it's reliable, all my
bikes have had radiators up until my yamaha and I gota say I prefer air
Senthx: deliberately so
MrAlex040404: Sounds like a Japanese sniper!
Senthx: I got mine flat out on the dual carriageway, about 70mph and it was scary.
I've sold this bike now, and have a CRF250L,I like it but it doesn't have
the same grin factor as the XR.
Senthx: The XR 250 isn't really a dirt sports bike, it's more of a utility dirt
bike, it would struggle enormously to do moto cross or supa moto type
riding. About the most you can do is fit twinduro tyres and adjust the
suspension for all round riding.
NorthofDallas: I got mine second hand and it runs perfect. I've crashed it many times but
it still runs new. It's strange starts first kick, but I sent it to my old
mans repair shop and he got it running just like new. It was made in 1999.
Joe Grove: Ok, well thanks for the help man :)
ChrisOnBikes: Makes me miss my old XR250. Managed 90 out of my old one, down hill, tail
wind on equally dubious enduro "road legal" tyres. It was as scary as it
sounds. DOing 60 on it on wet grass was safer.
Alistair Mcgown: That has a very high idle! Yanyan Madiam: Just so you know. Breds shoelace tip should be white.. darnfar: This is my experience after putting many hours on this scooter.
1. it is not good to drive this scooter in wet weather as water will damage
the electronic boards and connectors located in the cavity between the
wheels. ALL the system boards and connecters sit exposed between the 2 back
wheels and water/mud will splash up on them and damage them . Should of
been built with a housing/barrier to protect these parts. IT IS NOT THE
SLIGHTEST BIT WATER RESISTANT.
2. This scooter W I L L ! tip quite easy and will do wheelies way too easy.
The center of gravity is high and can feel wobbly at mid range speeds. ODDS
ARE YOU WILL GET HURT ON THIS SCOOTER IN TIME!!!
(4 wheel model version for a higher price}
Good for shopping however because you are not a low rider looking up at
everyone and everything. Small basket on back does not allow for much
storage and hard to reach.
3. the welds for the seat hinges are TERRIBLE/UNSAFE. Seat is Very
4. the brakes are not good/responsive at higher speeds. One must have
really good grip force to work the brakes and engage the parking lock lever.
5. the fenders and side plastic crack quite easily.
6. I replaced all my lights with LED versions to save a huge amount of
battery drain especially with the brake lights coming on all the time.
7. front glove compartment so cheaply made it defies being useful. It falls
8. I disconnected the antitheft motor lock out because it failed quite
9. it turns on a dime so it can make all the tight turns which is a really
10. I disconnected the turn signal buzzer and then added a bypass switch as
the noise could be annoying at times.
11. one has to be careful about "throttling" when the speed dial is turned
up as you can get caught off guard and can wreck into things. The initial
start movement when the throttle is slightly turned is jumpy as it is not a
smooth slow transition but more of a jump forward.. It takes awhile to get
use to the way it coasts when you let off of the throttle as some sellers
advertise electronic braking but the one I bought does not have this
12. battery life/distance has been excellent for me.
13. parts are easy to acquire.
14. the reverse toggle switch is cheap quality and can come loose.
15. my battery charger became defective after the second charge and was
immediately replaced. (seems to be a common failure from reading other
reviews) Although the replacement has held up to several dozens recharges?
16. cheap floor mat slides off quite easily.
17. have seen these advertised as handling a weight from 300lbs to 500 lbs
depending on seller. different top end speeds and distance capabilities
depending on seller.
18. Draws a huge amount of attention from kids and adults which can be a
BASICALLY IT IS CHEAPLY MADE AND I WOULD CONSIDER UNRELIABLE IN MANY
INSTANCES. It is not very forgiving to scratches and bumps. It must be
treated fairly delicately compared to any of the other models on the market
as it is not constructed with but the lightest/thinnest of materials. The
electronic componets, switches and wiring is the cheapest quality possible.
ODDS ARE YOU WILL HAVE PARTS FAILURES!!!!!
I have a Dodge Caravan with the back seats folded into the stowaway
position and a light fold up aluminum ramp to which I open a side door and
stand next to the scooter as I drive it up the ramp. It sits right behind
the driver and passenger seat.
B O T T O M Line....... is I LOVE IT!!! I love the looks also...
as a mechanic/electronics tech I can keep it running while others may not.
TO BE HONEST I would not trust the safety of this scooter for anyone who is
frail or fragile as it is too light in the front end, tips easily, and
possibly too fast for some people.
I have bought several used ones from others who have had electrical
problems with them. NRG4904: (slap himself) it was behind the building not outside of the boat Simone Renzi: @Gianpaolo Cerato
La differenza tra logic e garage band risiede nel fatto che il primo è un
Digital Audio Workstation professionale, molto utilizzato soprattutto negli
USA. Qui in Europa lo standard è protools. Tempo permettendo, una volta
finiti questi tutorial su logic comincerò anche quelli su ProTools. Garage
Band è un software più orientato allo user level pertanto c'è poca
possibilità di personalizzazione, ed è infatti realizzato per l'utente
medio. Non necessita di particolari conoscenze in ambito dell'ingegneria
del suono. Chi usa DAW professionali deve conoscere parecchie cosucce per
produrre risultati professionali. MultiAzzzz: il sais meme pas ecrire lorraine hahahaha il ecrit lorianne canacourse: Great stuff
