Previous motorcycleHonda CR250

Summary:

Blooming marvelous

Faults:

Popped front fork seals after two years of ownership, but this was due to the fact that I am racing motocross, and haven`t had to do anything after washing and checking the bike straight after.

Not worried about brakes or clutches wearing out, as these are expendable, as with most bikes, plus there are always after market parts if needed to add more durability.

In my own opinion this is probably one of the best bikes out on the track for motocross, compared to other bikes that I have seen being pulled apart after only one race.

General Comments:

Very fast bike for racing, great acceleration and handling, and can be very smooth when you need it to be.

Don`t know if the seat is uncomfortable as I hardly ever sit on it.

Summary:

Honda never made a better bike, when you consider long term maintenance, costs, fun and light weight

Faults:

Fork seals blew, but still, 6 years of riding on one set?

Brake pads wore out, but they were still the OEM ones.

General Comments:

Incredibly fast, best year of the Honda CR250.

The power valve flap requires that you remove the head to clean.

Top notch quality and reliability.

All fasteners are perfect, and made of high-grade steel.

The 2001 CR250 is one of the best years made for the CR250. The 2000 model had some jetting issues that needed resolved. Those could be fixed with a JD Jetting Jet Kit
