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.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      I recently got a 98 warrior 350 that 'needed the carb adjusted' but the reality is it has no spark. I have a new spark plug, plug wire, ignition coil, battery, and cdi box. I checked continuity and took apart and inspected the starter/kill/light switch on the handle bar, and it all looks brand new and checked out. The key switch seems to be working properly, as when off, nothing works, but when switched on, lights and electric starter button work. It turns over fine, and as I just stated, all the lights work. I took all the plastics off and traced all the wires, and only one had a small cut in it, but it was only through the rubber sheathing, not the wire itself (the blue one coming from the stator). I cleaned some grounds, made sure both relays work, and still nothing. I pulled the stator cover and looked at the stator itself, and it looks great. No broken wires or connectors or anything. Still, no spark. I'm at a loss. Where do I go next? Any help is appreciated.

      I have recently rebuilt my Yamaha warrior 350 engine and when I got it all back together with no “spare parts” i went to start it and realized it’s in reverse. I went to put it in drive and the shifter won’t budge, I took the linkage off and tried to use vise grips but it won’t budge at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m hoping it’s not something internal!
