Bloodhound726: Will it be too high for me if I'm 5'10?
Alex Chard: I'm 14 5'6 and ride one! You need a 450, or an xr 400
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.
