    A friend had a Service Honda CRF 150R but with the 250F motor in it. Was a cool bike!

    I understand power isn't priority in a build like this but why choose the xr200. 6 speed, extremely down on power?

    Excellent question! Through my extensive research (i asked a couple guys who have built them) I have concluded that the lightweight of the 200 motor compared to the 250 is one reason and that it physically fits better in a 125 frame.
    I thought about doing a 250(0r 350) in a 250 frame but love the handling of the 80 rm 125.
    I also intend do some "minor" tweaking of the motor.

    This is one done in a 80 CR 125 frame that races with us at ACR all the time.

    Might not be the holeshot machine my 125 was (old #727) but hopefully more reliable.....
