I’m new to the forums here but I’ve always been obsessed with the 250r. I’m 22 years old now I’m born & raised in Central Pennsylvania, I remember being 9 years old begging my parents to rent the Huevos movies from the video store. Age 15 I got a 1987 TRX250R. I blew the top end on it due to the previous owner using high temp silicone gasket sealer between the reed valve & the face of the cylinder. Came to find out it was a 292 big bore sleeper cylinder and it would need to be resleeved as it was on the last bore. Age 16 I worked all summer long laborering for a carpet company saving every little penny I made to buy me an ESR 310, 38mm Keihin Air Stryker, temp gauge, aluminum radiator some shrouds. Abandoned the project for several years due to working 7 days a week for several years and building several other bikes in the process like my CR250. Fast forward to now. I’m getting the final pieces together to complete this project. I just bough a hub for my DuraBlue X33, this week I’m gonna purchase a bushing kit for the linkage and swing arm bearing kit, rotor guard and the bike will be ready to slap back together.
