OEM ATC/TRX 250R or CR250R.  Stay away from the aftermarket ATC/TRX CDI's.  Unfortunately all the OEM components are discontinued (ATC/TRX and 2001 CR).  Prices for CR ignitions seem to be going up.  Buy if and when you see them.

I'm running a 1999 CR250R ignition in a 275PV.  2001 CR ignition is on the shelf waiting for a big bore.

I need to see what all the fuss is about a CR ignition. I run an 01 CR ignition on my R and have no complaints. Fires on first kick, snappy response and runs great.

But, I have never ridden an R with a stock ignition. So I can't personally speak on the difference.

I have ran both on the same motors. The stock 250r stuff has a little bit more low end the CR. I switched back to the CR on my BB. Because with race gas if you kicked it half ass. It would kick back. Now no kick backs even when I tried to start it with flip flops on (mistake)

Had a pvl but it took a shit over the weekend . so I put a stock one back in to keep my son riding over the weekend . It was definitely a little lazy with the stock one in it .

Arlan advocates for the PVL ignition so I'd be interested to check it out. I run an OEM ignition at the moment

Pete also suggests a pvl as an option.  I will most likely use one on my next build as cr ignitions are hard to find and are being sold for ridiculous prices. My son had a pvl in his mini quad and it worked great. Pete explained to me that if set up properly they work flawlessly.

discontinued parts and big dog turd pumping up the price inflated the cost significantly.

Well, glad I bought a R that had it already. I've still got my factory one as well for a back up.
