thanks a lot!!! ...you know more about this bike than honda.... lol ...
After some messing around it turns out it wasn't the carb ....it was the exhaust valves....so after a top rebuild this bike is like new...suddenly I can see why these fcr carbs are so expensive....the acceleration is nuts.
Madnomad, Greece is beautiful!
Haha, I'm glad you like it! It's true, there are some great landscapes around here... and you got the perfect bike to explore them ;-)
Nice ride you've got there. Can i ask what are the handguards you have on your bike ?
I live in Dubai, UAE and own a 2011 XR250 Tornado. I cant seem to find any handguards that would fit this bike. They turn to be either short, or happen to touch / stand in the way of the brak / clutch handles.
Did you try Zeta handguards? They have a "bent" version which gives more clearance to the lines and cables. There are several similar choices by other manufacturers. Strength-wise, I've heard very good thing about Cycra guards.
I'd kill for a set of those lights for my project XR400R dual sport.
Thanks mate.. I just checked em online.. i guess they should fit my bike.
Checkin' in with my 2001 XR250 Baja tractor...hello, everybody!
In fact had only been thinking of it as of my big bikes winter substitute...until found myself riding it all year round and not even thinking of anything else anymore.
I am looking for a oil filter cover for the Baja XR250L. I guess 1991-1992 model.
i currently own an xr250 baja (american import) i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to switch the indicators from always on(american running lights) to standard uk without having to rip them out and wiring a new set
I have one of these bikes... XR250V 1997, Japanese import - excellent fun, I have been using it for greenlaning...
I am hoping to get a FB page off the ground for those of us in the UK with these bikes so that we can help each other out if need be...
new Baja owner here in Japan. Mine's a 1992 model. I just picked it up and got it going, have plenty of cosmetic work to do but here are some recent pics.
Bike runs and rides really sweet, it's so light and confidence inspiring I love it. Note mine is one of the last with the roundy frame tubes, others here are later with the square tube frames. Sidecovers are slightly different, and mine has the early engine with tight valve lash, something you need to be aware of, as later models had more normal clearances. When I got mine, someone had adjusted to later spec and it was hard to start and ran like crap.
Interesting and unique thing about my early model is they have no battery, no starter, only a kickstarter. As a result they're much lighter than models after 1993.
I've learned quite a lot about these bikes so let me know if you have any questions.
Hi guys, i am from Romania and I`ve just bought a Baja:))
I think is a 93 model. MD22 with MD17E engine and Keihin PD79C carburetor, wet sump..oil radiator cooler.
Just kickstart, no battery, but everything works.
I have some issues with the carb and some leaking at the top end motor...
I am trying to find a manual but nothing so far.
Waht about the interchangeable parts between Baja and xr250r? Do they fit?
I am interested in oil filters, brake discs and plates, etc.
i'm watching this thread now since a couples of years as visitor, now may be the time to join!
i've buildet up a "old" baja the last years in phnom penh and got to know the bike since very well
thats how it looked 3 years ago. i dont know the year but its a md30 10... so probably around 96 or 97.
disassembly to the very bottom end
pics will follow..
thats how it looks now
general overhaul of the bike
powdercoated frames white
change the md30 front light to the one of the md22 (the mount will not brake anymore and its got the H4 halogen bases!)
oil temp dip stick
airfilter snorkel cutoff
oz works exhaust pipe
change the seat
lowering link (as i'm 1.70 - works perfect)
anodising of the header pipes
engine ventilation tubes directly to airfilter
short gas handle (taken from my old ktm)
keihin pwk 35 flatty carb (you get it cheap, runs great, much more torque, just a little more fuel consumption, changing needle and jets takes less then 3 minutes)
reusable oil filter
magnet oil drain screw
steel braided brake lines
still to do is:
acerbis 22l tank
new wiring loom
bigger header pipes
so if someone in SE Asia got bigger header pipes (preferably from muggen or delta) ant want to exchange with my spare tripcomputer/speedo (full working), let me know...
By any chance somebody would have one of those dual Honda headlights to sell?
Those later model baja's are nice. I wish we got them here in the US.
you can buy almost every part of the baja on *bay japan and get it sent to switzerland.
works very well, i get my parts sent to switzerland too before taking them to asia.
Thanks for the tip, but, I have tried ebay japan and it is (obviously) in japanese.
