The 250cc bike - A Superb Motor with grunt.

Buying a 250cc dirt bike needs some consideration, and we have made a list of a few things here.

Two Great 250cc DirtBikes that Really Stand Out

2010 kawasaki KX250F and honda CRF250-R

When thinking of purchasing a 250cc dirtbike, the competition is incredibly tough. Honda has realized that sometimes changes are not always the best answer and the 2010 Honda CRF250-R is evidence about their quick changes for the better.

Start with the switch to fuel injection (FI), designed for quick starts and better performance with the exact fuel/air mix. While they were at it, Honda designers, techs and engineers threw in some other good stuff, like the new 249cc Unicam Single compact engine.

The chassis has changed to a twin-spar aluminum frame. The steering head is aluminum, as well and the spar height and weight reduced. Gone is the dual muffler, reverted back to a single-can system. Anytime you have quality with less weight, it is a good thing.

The transmission ratios changed for better efficiency and just when you thought that was enough, the airbox changed to yield higher capacity and the rear subframe profile narrowed to reach the air filter more easily. The front wheel is 15mm closer to the engine, improving steering and handling. The water pump is more durable and the AC generator increased in size. Overall, Honda 2010 CRF250-R changed the things that were hampering prime performance and provided features designed to give optimum action.

Kawasaki did not get as carried away with the 2010 KX250F, making the changes on the inside. There is a bridged-box piston, which resulted in less weight. The ultimate factor is the performance it delivers on the top end of the rev range. An advance of two degrees on the intake cam timing helps bring the power boost home.

The chassis has a new steering stem shaft, reducing rigidity. The Kayaba fork now has revised damping and a different spring rate. The rear shock, mounted to revised linkage ratios, adds to improved handling.

Do these things........

Ensure your skill level and ability is able to use this bike to its potential, it has a huge amount of power and could easily get you into trouble.

Be aware it’s a heavy bike, and if you need it for jumps, you may want a lighter power unit. The engine needs to be checked and the bike test driven before you buy, it could be expensive later on to fix.

Lots of receipts are good to see on a "used" 250cc bike, and check if it’s been in races or used for the owners own use – race bikes will have been used hard.
