I have a 1989 XR250 that I haven't ridden in a long time and wouldn't mind selling. It's in fair condition, needs a little work (new tires, carb rebuild).

Otherwise it's solid. It has an aftermarket exhaust (I think it's a Cobra), skid plate, aluminum brush guards on the bars, and ran great before I perma-parked it in my garage several years ago.

I'll check it over and make sure there are no leaks, brakes are working, wipe the cobwebs off, post a pic and ask for an offer

wow, took a lot longer to get back to normal life after the vacation than I thought

I pulled the bike out of the garage this weekend, snapped a pic, then proceeded to clean her up some and get to work on her.

She's running well. I need to finish changing the tires and get a new air filter and she'll be ready to move!!

Well it took long enough to get the bike fixed up (December was BUSY!!), and another potential buyer bailed on me, so I'm gonna offer it up here:

I put on some Pirelli Scorpion tires with Bridgstone tubes, put in a new Emgo air filter (the old foam filter was, well, old and crumbly), cleaned her up pretty well, and greased the swingarm linkage. It starts up easily now that I've flushed the system out too. I also took off the skid plate cus it was falling apart and was better at trapping dirt & mud than anything else.

I have a Clymer shop manual, the original owner's manual, original 2-piece travel tool set, and a milk crate style bike stand too that can go with the bike.

I'm asking for $1200 since it's in such good shape for this old of a bike and has the brand new tires on it. About the only work it would need in the future is a chain replacement. I cleaned the chain up really well and it rolls pretty smoothly, but some of the O-rings are a little cracked from age and it would hinder performance if you're riding really hard. But it wouldn't be a problem for trail riding and such.

Thats a good looking bike!

What would it take to make it street legal? I see its lacking turn signals, but you don't necessarily need those on the street.

Thanks and good luck with the sale!

I'm not sure if a metal gas tank is still a requirement, so that might be a consideration. I also don't know if it needs any kind of special exhaust or not.

Otherwise it would need mirrors, brake light, street tires... would be a shame having just put on those nice Pirelli's
