You’d never guess this CRF250R was lying in pieces, divided amongst four boxes when Jay Clark purchased it at a fraction of its original cost. Jay has a knack/obsession for resurrecting basket-case motorcycles purchased off the Internet, (aka Craigslist). His goal was to turn a CRF250R into a trail bike, loving the benefits of fuel-injection over carburation. He also likes the newer chassis of the 2010 CRF250R when compared to an older CRF250X. The downside to the CRF250R is lack of electric start. So if you have an older MX bike that doesn’t have much resale value, maybe transforming it into a big-bore off-road bike like this, what we dubbed Frankenstein CRF270R-X, could be an option. If you go the route of Jay, it won’t be a cheap path, he likes his bikes completely decked out! To make a build like this even close to worth it, you need to do a lot spinning wrenches yourself, paying shop rates for a rebuild along these lines would be astronomical. Hopefully a few key modifications from this CRF270R-X could transform your motocrosser into a worthy trail machine.
