Got my new Clarke tank the other day. Finally got around to installing it today. All went smoothly till the petcock started leaking. Oh yeah and I smashed my thumb and bleed over all the place. I got one leak stopped but the other needs a new o-ring.

Another thing I've been wondering about is does the XR250R and XR250L share the same frame?

New to me '84 XR250R

I just brought home a well used 1984 XR250R. It has been in storage for a couple of years but looks complete just tired. It turns over and has spark but has had gas left in it and it has damaged the carburetors, yep the 1984 and 1985 models had twin carbs. Does anyone one know of a place to get rebuild kits or do I have to piece together the parts of a Honda website? I didn’t give this purchase a lot of thought and it might put my April TAT trip in danger of not happening now.

There is a beast named:

Keyster carb kit, by Sirius (something) on Ebay.

There are single and twincarb kits...I don't have the part #s handy, but it claims to be an all inclusive kit...

orings, jets, bowl seals, the works..


They do have double kits for the twins, or singles also for the RFVC 250.

I don't have time to find your specific one, but PM the seller, i know he has them..

Let's keep this going. Here's a topless picture to encourage some input.



























Turns out Clarke keeps shipping their tanks without the proper mounting hardware. I'm waiting on a rubber piece to raise the rear of the tank off the head of the engine. Atleast its getting warmer.

So,i guess i'm pick'n a 89 up later this week! Fellow inmate[Crankshaft] hooked a brother up.
I'm just look'n to put a good 95% dirt bike together.I mean i've been beat'n the shit out of the DR650 try'n to fit it in the woods where 350+lb bikes shouldn't go,so the XR250R will be set up to fit the bill.
I'm look'n to put something,madmax of the big woods look'n thing together,or something.
So its time to get the XR250R thread kick'n,i'll try to make sure it stays on the first page.

Nice. Pictures, we all want to see them when you get your new bike. You wanna know something lame? I haven't even ridden my '03 in the dirt yet been busy with school and driving all over the place looking for a dirtbike for my SO. But today paid off, she got a nice '06 DR-z125. Gonna get it plated tomorrow. Now I have a awesome riding partner.

I've got an '86 & a 2000 model...It's incredible how similar the bikes are. The '86 starts FAR easier, runs just as well, and has a more comfortable seat. The '00 model might be a bit stronger out of the hole. My nephews (of about the same weight) have drag raced from a 20mph start and stayed neck & neck. I'l post photos later. love this thread.
PS- any source for new side plastics for the early bike??

Nice bike Yater. Real clean for a '97. What skidplate is that? I ordered a DG baja plate but they sent me the wrong one, its for a XR400 and does not fit.
