Summary:

Love it

Faults:

Replaced fork seals

General Comments:

Awesome bike! Raced it at national level intermediate motocross the whole season, and it was bullet proof. Checked the valves after 6 months, and they were still in spec.

The bike is fast; I pulled holeshots against fully modded bikes. The oil filter was changed every 20 minutes, and the oil every 2 hours. After playing with the clickers, the suspension was spot on.

Summary:

Fast, but wouldn't last

Faults:

The valves, clutch lever, and the motor overall.

General Comments:

It all started with my clutch lever when I dropped it around a corner. From there it seemed like the bike just went south.

The valves were replaced twice in a course of 6 months, and the bike was rebuilt once. The bike was extremely fast but would not last. I have heard the new 08's RIP!

But once again, the valves had to be adjusted after every race. Also the air filter must be cleaned after every ride... Honda sure does make a fast 250f, but if you're looking for durability... definitely not the way to go.
