I went riding at friends track on my Banshee in mx trim about a month ago and by the end of the weekend i was riding around on his crf250r and i just had to have one. I ended up trading a guy bike for bike. I traded him my 02 warrior 350 for an 04 crf250r with 20 hours on it. I still have a my Banshee but 2 wheels sure are a ton of fun...

We have been riding every weekend at either my buddies track, eagles roost, or a couple other local tracks. Ive had my 250 for about 3 weeks and already crashed jumping a 50ft table top. here are some pics of my bike and some of our riding.

Just after my first ride...

you should probably check those valves and the piston. hondas have been known to blow up, then your out $1000

Im a mechanic, trust me they get checked. exhaust .011 and intake .005 right on specs...

one more ride and ill have to change the oil for the third time.

I love my bike. I havn't ridden my Banshee since i bought my bike.

Yeah, Honda's are known to keep on going without maintenance. I wouldn't do it but I know plenty of people that don't and their machines are still running.

Good advise on checking the valves and stuff but Honda makes machines that last.

im not a huge fan of hondas..but i have to agree with u bot honda defiantly builds stuff that lasts.. i saw a man on a honda recon go in up to the handle bars stalled in the water got winched out... after a few cranks the damn thing started up and he was driving around for the rest of the day.. haha

not going to jack the thread..so back onto topic i really like the crf250r jigolbeep and good luck with it.. got any plans for it?

Who is rebuilding it for him? Something is being done wrong. Is he seizing it or blowing the rings...what's going on? If he is running the wrong kind of oil, jetting, bad air filter, not enough oil...there are lot's of things that could cause it. Even the best of them drop a lemon here and there.

How does he ride it? If he's always bouncing off the rev limiter, that can be an issue.

his dad rebuilds it for him. and he knows wat hes doing...i think? lol. but he rides the piss out of it, so that could be why it blows up all the time.

I have a friend who rides a CRF 250R, she loves it too. It's pretty quick too, she can almost keep up with me on my LTR.

thanks i really dont know what all i want to do... i just got some black n-style number plate back grounds and i've got to get some #s so i can start racing the beginners class in the near future... this winter i am probably going to tear my wheels down and have my buddy josh coat them black with gold or red hubs and probably have him coat some other stuff too... Ill end up getting an exhaust and probly go through the head and put in better seats, valves, springs and keepers and maybe a little porting. Truethfully i think if i get my jetting spot on it wouldnt need much more power to haul me around.

      So I dug my warrior out of storage replaced the carburetor with one off Amazon & it was running great. Last week it didn't want to start it would crank & I could smell gas but nothing. I replaced the starter,stator,solenoid,spark plug & coil & resistor but still not starting. Checked the stator and its at 30 ohms tried using starter fluid but nothing. I am completely lost and could use some help thank you

      I like to ride in wooded and grassy areas. It takes my mind off the everyday routines and helps me deal with my father's cancer. Also gives me a reason to get involved with forums like this one.

      So yesterday I picked up a 07 polaris sportsman 800efi stealth edition for 3k.  Will lead a pic ltr.  In good shape.  Here's what's wrong with it:
      The rpm needle doesn't work just like my other sportsman... not too worried ab that.
      The motor doesn't sound like it's running quite right and doesn't feel like it has much more power than my 500.  I'm thinking it needs a tune up and some fresh oil..  but also it feels like it's running rich.  It's a little buggy when you goose the throttle and sometimes farts when you let off (like I little backfire out the exhuast). I'm gonna check timing and valave clearence on the motor first but thinking of putting a tuner on it? Anybody got a suggestion?  Mainly looking for more power.

      1997 Yamaha 350 Warrior, should there be oil in the stator area? Have a no spark situation.
    • By Bebe
      Hey guys I'm new here. I have a 88 warrior that has intermittent spark. When I got the bike the guy said it needed a stator.  So I tested the stator and the Source coil has .310,  Trigger coil has .363 an .367,  Alternator side has .05 to .06 on the three. Which all seem in range. I did find that the ignition coil was bad and replaced it. After I  put the new coil on i got spark but only now and then. The bike won't spark while I'm holding the start button,  but as soon as I let off it will spark sometimes. I ended up unplugging the voltage regulator and it will spark every time I let off the start button, but still will not spark while I'm  holding it. What could this be?
