Still Loving My 2-Stroke, 2001 Honda CR250

I'm not sayin' I don't love thumpers too, but sometimes 2-strokes get a bad rap because they aren't the current fad. The problem sometimes for me is that I've always loved Honda's too. Honda stopped making 2-strokes after 2007. With enough money, a new Honda 2-stroke can be purchased through places like Service Honda. So far I've managed to hold on to my 2001 with a little effort. After a nice run in the mud a while back, I had some cleaning to do. I ended up getting a new chain, sprockets, some new number background material, a new black front fender, and number plate in the process. I like the new look so much I had to post up some pics before I go out and mess it up again. Time will tell how long I can really love this bike, I guess until something truly better comes along for me. I'm a sucker for light weight, simplicity.. and I can't seem to break away from Honda yet.

  1. that looks like a beast! unfortunately the closest i have ever gotten to riding a dirt bike like this is hitting the hills on a quad bike.

  11. And we're any additional measurements taken or you just cut away

    1. Nothing special, I just made sure the bottom cut was straight and measured so things were symmetrical.
