1985 atc 250r

Got a kickass deal on a 1985 honda atc 250r! My dads buddy has 3 of them and he's selling me one for 500 cash! it runs great and its in perfect condition and all stock. Its a awesome deal! Im just wondering if its as fast as the 700? ive never rode one before but ive heard about the power they pack...what do you guys think?

Thats a great deal. I rode a buddies 86 quite a bit in my youth that had aftermarket reeds and silencer. If I remember right it toped out around 80. I dont think it will out run the 700 on the big end stock but i think it will get there quicker. First thing I would do (after the first ride of course, lets don't be foolish) is rering it, complete exhaust kit and the reeds. Good luck keeping the front down. lol

First off, that is an AWESOME deal!!!!! I have paid more than that for Rs that were parts bikes. If you haven't rode one much, be careful the first few times. They can be a handful in the woods and on the rocks if you are not used to one.

On the speed thing, I am gonna say it depends on where you race at. I am not sure about a stock R since it has been so long since mine was, but I think that my big 3 XX would destroy mine on the road or dirt. At the same time the R would eat it up in the sand or anything really loose, the weight difference is too much to overcome in those situations. Watch the front end, coming up and going sideways when you have a traction differential on the rear end. If you are going to trail ride it, I would recommend spacers and a harder rear tire like a scorpion. Makes it much easier to get around the corners.

You will love it!!!!

I plan on riding mostly trails with the 250r and was wondering what aftermarket parts I should start with. I probably have about 600 dollars to put into it as of now. Who knows what will make a 250r fast for cheap??

For $600 I would get a pipe, silencer, filter, and reeds. Especially if it still has the stock reeds from 85. The Boyesen Rad Valve is good because it has a better intake on it, I have ran one for about 6 years with good luck. As far as a woods pipe goes, I really like my FMF fatty with the plain jane FMF silencer. I used to run a K&N, but it didn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling on how it fits in the air box over the flange, so i swiched to a UNI. Like I said earlier, rear tires and spacers make it easier to handle IMO. Make sure to take extra time jetting, the R is alot pickier than modern 4 strokes.

After that, port, polish, bigger carb, bigger piston.........the list goes on and on.

Here is a pic of my baby.

So I finally picked up the 250r on sunday and holy hell that thing is fast! The second I got home my dad and I ran the xx against the 250 and the 250r won 5 of 6 races! The 250 seemed to get the jump off the line and pulled to about 2 bike lengths and stayed there the whole race. The 250 is stock and the xx has the big 3. I was very impressed with the 250! Can't wait to put aftermarket parts in it! I'll get pics up later today and video sometime this week!
