bike 2004 Honda CRF250X with R cams and more - $2900

Recommended Posts

I'm selling my 2004 Honda CRF250X dirt bike, street-legal with a clean and clear title, ready to go for the season. It's the X model with wider gearing that people get for woods riding, enduros, hare scrambles and dual sports, AND it has the popular R (racing) cams for MX-level power, especially off the bottom. The bike is no joke at 270 lbs wet. My buddy and I went thoroughly through it last spring and again this winter to make it possibly the most sorted X you'll find. He rode the Honda with me in Wayne, Perry and Flint Ridge, but moved out of state recently. That's why I'm selling it - I have another bike that fits me better.

We added a road-legal lighting kit and registered it with the DMV (yay dual sport rides!), replaced every fluid except the forks, installed new tires and HD tubes (now roughly 100 miles/15 hours on them), replaced the air cleaner, cleaned and regreased every wheel bearing, replaced and greased every suspension bearing, added handlebar risers and set sag for a 180 lb 5'10" rider, installed a new lithium battery (pushbutton start AND kick!), added Cycra handguards and radiator guards, replaced the foot pegs with a set that actually grip and also installed a Trail-Tech Vapor unit for speed and engine temp. There are a few little things too, like fork "shock socks," a temp-monitoring radiator cap, seat pack and grab handle. I'll throw in a brand new (quality) set of chain and sprockets, the service manual and spare lightbulbs, plugs and other misc. parts.

Friends know I take care of my bikes like I never want to get stuck far away due to mechanical neglect, and this X is absolutely ready to hit the trails again as-is. But here's where I tell you about the negatives - you need to change the fluids like it's an R model, so don't be waiting a whole season between services - it's just like a KTM, Beta or Husky. The right crankcase took at brake tooth hit during Flint Ridge. I repaired it with JB Weld and haven't had an issue since, but I'd recommend inspecting it during the next oil change and considering a case protector. The Vapor's spark sensor wire broke, so it won't tell you RPM (a $20 fix). It has a good bash plate, but stump hoppers will want to add or replace it with a full-coverage unit. It's quick, and I mean quick off the bottom, so I would NOT call this a beginner's bike unless you have good throttle discipline. The existing chain and spockets are fine but could use a swap within the next year (included). I'd recommend draining the fork oil if for no other reason than to say that EVERY fluid has been changed, and checking the valve clearances - I meant to do both over the winter but work got in the way. The bike starts, runs and suspends great, but it never hurts to be proactive, ya know?

The bike is located in northeast Columbus, priced at $2900. I know I don't have to say this to OhioRider folks, but please no scammers and time wasters. I'm an honest, no-BS, no-games seller who would be happy to sell this bike to a fellow (or would-be!) woods rider from this forum.

      Up for sale is a 2007 Suzuki SV650 that was bought from Brian "Tuna" Mullins awhile ago that is well known with WERA and AFJ, ,so he can testify to the background to this bike. I purchased it originally to build for an endurance bike with some friends but never had time to do it or finish it. This is a BILL OF SALE ONLY - TRACK ONLY, this bike is NOT street legal as it does not have a title as it originally come from an police auction

      Mileage:
      975 total miles

      Upgrades:
      pit bull 520 chain and sprocket kit, 
      pit bull spools, 
      Galfer front SS brake lines, new EBC front and rear pads, 
      GSXR steering stabilizer, 
      new fork oil, 
      pit bull speedo spacer replacement, 
      new dunlop Q2's, 
      SV Parts black rear sets (Not installed but come with it), 
      new ecu and new gsxr fuel pump
      new battery (always keep on trickle charger)

      What needs to be done:
      Tank needs to be treated, and I have provided a new KBS Cycle tank sealer kit
      stock bodywork reinstalled or buy race bodywork

      All stock bodywork and lights come with it, and I also had a set of old gen 1 R6 bodywork you can have it you want to retrofit. Pictures are of when the bodywork was still on the bike, it has been off and stored properly so you can chose if you want street bodywork or race bodywork on it when you set it up.

      CASH ONLY, NO TRADES, Bike is located in Columbus, OH

      Bike has just been sitting, I don't have time to finish building it or get to the track, so figured it is best to get it to someone that can put it to use.

      Thanks for the consideration, and hope it can go to good use for someone!
