My new son's R
« on: June 02, 2018, 07:34:15 PM »
I recently got custody of my 11 year old son. So I naturally had to buy him a 250r.  I found a 86 R with a few good parts. The best part is that I got it for  $800. I am trying to cobble it together for my upcoming trip July 7th. Wish me luck!

Can't go wrong for 800 bucks!  What's the plan?  And what parts do you need?

Looks like it might have 400ex a-arms on it.
overkill is an often underrated achievement

So this R doesn't run at the moment.  I basically bought it for parts. I wasn't aware that the frame was trash,  but now I am lol. The plan moving forward is to slap it together in a hurry so we can ride in early July.  After this summer I will be tearing it apart and making it a decent quad.

Sounds like a plan. If you can keep his attention, the 11 year old will learn a lot, but the attention span is short on most. letting him ride it before the big tear down, may play well in his waiting for it to be done.
I love projects, best of luck

Looks like I need a few parts. Front engine mount plates, head stay, and swinger pivot bolt. I will post my wish list in the wanted section.  Thanks,  Loren

I actually have 2 11 year old boys. One has been riding a 250r for about 9 months and the other is just starting.  They are both 5'3" tall and one is 130lbs and the other is 120lbs. So bigger than most kids their age lol
