I have raced 250R for 10 years, know them like the back of my hand. Call me at the shop and I can go over some things to look for. 88-89, swingarms crack up front and are about impossible to repair. The upper steering stem mounts break, and the frame just in front of the frame. Check out the counter balancer holder. The 88-89 years have better gears, clutch system, peg location, front spindles, just to name a few things.
i'm a yamaha suzuki guy but i heard that for 250r's 86 frames were the best and 89 engines ran the best. plus 88-89's had the best clutch setups. oh yeah has honda made a quad since 89 because as far as i'm conserned they haven't. hey here's a good joke---------400ex they said it was the new 250r oh yeah. now they say the same thing bout the 450r i say quit wasting my time and the space in dirt wheels mag.
