\'84 XR250R

Hey fella's,

I just got a '84 XR250R last summer (not running) and took the engine apart to find the problem. The problem was a broken barring in the trans. I got a new barring, and all the gaskets I need to finish the job. I'm trying to find the time now to put this bike back togeather and would just like to get an idea of what to expect once it's running again. It looks to be quite the bike. It's in real good shape for being an 84 too. If anyone has a web site about the xr250r please show me the way. I'd love to see some pic's of others. Plus if anyone has any ideas for me now that I'm putting this back togeather (any tricks or tip's??) THanks a bunch.

Can't really comment on what to expect from it. There are some other folks here that ride XR's. You can check out thumpertalk.com they have an XR 250/400 forum. Goodluck with your bike.

Re: \'84 XR250R

Hi. You'll just have to do some searching on the internet. XRs only and Al Bakkers come to mind but maybe they deal mostly with newer XR's. I'm no XR expert, but Honda changed the XR250 engine alot in 1986. Don't get me wrong, but I have heard of several problems with pre 86 XR250 engines, most of which involved the head and or cam. Get your bike together again and I bet you'll like it though. The 4 stroke power will be nice for trail riding and hill climbing. Good luck. Ed. (I ride a 93 XR250R- wish it was lighter and had better suspension, but I like it for most of the riding I do)

Re: \'84 XR250R

Thanks boys. I'll check out that site too. I have a good parts selection that includes an extra head and cam's, so that's nice to have.
I had a KLR250 not too long ago and had head problems. The honda seems to have a better set up. I went to the honda site and ended up drooling over the new 450. Perhaps I'll be able to buy a new bike soon...(fingies crossed!)
