CRF250R cooling fan

I may go pick up a Honda crf250r. It doesn't have a fan. Is one recommended for trail riding? Do they overheat easily since it is more of a motocross bike?

It's probably not necessary. But, if you're concerned, try a higher rated radiator cap first. has them for $25.

As long as you have your coolant topped off, there shouldn't be any problems with overheating. I alway recommend running engine ice, too. Good stuff.

what they said. I run a higher pressure cap plus I bought some of those chinese radiators on ebay. I have most of the stuff needed to wire up a fan too, but I haven't yet done it, and I doubt I ever will. keep moving and you shouldn't have a problem. another thing that people do is run a pilot jet 1 size up to keep the mixture a bit more rich.
