Hi chaps,
Ive just returned from a 13 month holiday and the bank balance is looking very sad indeed.
This means that (unfortunately) im going to have to part with my baby.
What i would like from your well informed selvs is an opinion on the value.

Its a 2001 Model which i gave a serious overhaul to last year.
Its had about 20 hours use since lol
So as its an XR the next overhaul needs to be in about 2050

Heres what shes had done;

77mm piston giving 277cc (WEISCO)
intake and exhaust ports smoothed and matched to manifolds,
Stainless steel racing exhaust (CRD),
Duel type foam air filter (Twinair) and high flow airbox cage,
Extra wide foot pegs,
CRD Aluminium bash plate,
Renthal bars
Magnetic sump and oil reservoir plugs,
Shotblast and Powder coated frame (silver)
New valve springs
New intake valves OEM
Heavy duty clutch springs (ECB)
New cam chain (DID)
New cam chain tensioner
New cam chain guide,
New O ring chain and sprocket set Stock sizes (Izumi)
New chain slider (OEM)
Complete rewire.
Complete engine overhaul and refit including most bottom end bearings etc,
Removed manual decompressor and added aluminium insert to hole in cylinder head,
New front brake pads
New stainless steel brake pistons and new seals,
Removed (frontwheel) speedo assembly, and made up stainless steel spacer and insert to accomodate normal bearing seal.
New front wheel bearings and seals,
New rear wheel bearings and seals,
Complete rear suspension- linkage, swingarm and shock rebuild (new bushes and bearings),
Complete front Fork service including;
MXW Racing fork springs (stiffer)
new bushes, seals and fork oil
I also removed 3 of the 7 shims in the compression stack for lighter high speed compression damping (this works well)
Wrap around hand guards, Homemade Bar risers and long reachers
Homemade numberplate bracket and LED numberplate light
Also its currently in day MOT kit - no lights, white CRF rear mudguard and front numberboard (where the lights should be)
Acerbis neoprene fork gaiters
of course all the lighting gear would be included
Its currently got the 34mm keihin pumper carb from an xlx350 fitted (that makes good power) but i never quite got the jetting perfect so il sell the bike with the standard item

Heres a few pics (i didnt bother to clean it yet as this isnt an advert)








I also have to sell the spares ive accumulated including;

Original cylinder (surface still feels well honed) + the old piston
Original standard fork springs
Various brake pads (new)
2x 45 tooth steel sprockets HONDA (new)
front brake master cylinder HONDA (new)
Front brake lever HONDA (new)
Fuel petcock (universal, leftside, accerbis, new)
Rear brake pedal (HONDA, new)
Rear bake disc from an xr650 Honda, new (bought by accident lol)

I couldn't pm you.

Let me know what you are expecting. I'm after a green laner but price conscious.

Thanks. Pm me if you wish.

I'm not sure you can PM as you are a member rather than a subscribed member. Not that it matters.

Email me to martyngilson at yahoo co uk adding the @ and the . to make sense.

Not sure why people do this but I hope you can work it out.

Thanks

Other than the fact that subscribed members pay £12 a year for the privilege of advertising and selling items on the forum!! That's one hell of a saving over eBay!!

No idea on price, but I'd have though if you got hold of a copy of TBM ( Trail Bike Magazine - the small A5 sized jobbie ) then you should be able to get an idea by looking through the classifieds at the back. XR280s do crop up occasionally, failing that there are usually some XR250s which should at least give you an idea of what to pitch it at.
Then either sell here or in TBM.

Hi thanks for the idea about checking in TBM il certainly do that.
With regards to the subscription, il certainly consider it. I really didntwant this thread to turn into an advert I'm genuinly just after some idea of value and the best place to sell.
However, I didn't realise there was a selling section of this site so il definitely consider subscribing.
Thanks for the replys

A friend bought a reasonable condition 'S' reg XR250 for £1400 from a shop.

With all of those mods & spares i'd pitch it at £1800 & see how things go.
