WOW! (Sorry, I didn't mean to yell, I just couldn't contain myself.)

What a cool bike! Another piece of functional art from A.J.

I'll have to have one of these, too.

OMGOSH!!!! :eek:

I just ruined my keyboard with drool.

Does it have the larger gas tank too? Or does one just have to be a little more on top of filling it up...

Oh to get my powermongering little hands on this bike (and have the funds to keep my powermongering little hands on it's upkeep too)...I wouldn't have need for a cabanaboy!!!

Some other curiosities that I had...

How in the heck do you get at the spark plug?
Would a 250X really suck that much more gas than a 150 motor?
Does the motor weigh enough (more than the 150 R motor) to where heavier springs might be required for the suspension?

Does it have larger radiators?

Can you order one with a 250R motor? Would that much torque snap a "little bike" chain? Can you sell them in light of the recall on the 150R's swingarm?

I tried to look up the specs...but didn't get too far.

sorry i missed the earlier questions--

larger tanks by clarke and IMS are offered and availible.

the spark plug , is as accessible as it is on a CRF150R ;)

The bike weigjhs slightly more than a 150R , but not much,
(roughly 6 pounds)
regardless, we spring each Junior bike specifically for the rider
(thats included in the price)
as most customers purchasn gthis bik eare adults ,and weigh a bit more than the bikes sring rates were originally intended for.

The Junior R model has the CRF250R engine.

the Junior X model has the CRF250X engin ewith estart /lights battery.

while you "could:" order a junior X with an R engine..
youd lose the X models features and should simply order a junior R.

(i realize our specs page doesnt ay this out well and needs redone)

If you were simply interested in the hp performence aspect..of the engines,
rather than the lighting ,e start , features,
(the X is plenty fast in that chassis)
you *could* order a junior X, with a R model cam /valves/exghuast /carb.
(its the performence difference between the X vs R engines)

it has the stock sized radiators ,and i have tested extensivly for two years with them and never had any troubles, if anything the bike tends to run a bit cool.

The Junior bikes come with a 520 chain and sprockets (no little bike chain)
We ride and test extensively before releasing any model.
all areas of concern are strenghthened , things like radiator size etc,
is sorted out long before the bike would be released :)


Honda's recall in the swingarm , does effect these bikes of course.
thats a part thats out of our control untill we here more directly from Honda.

personally i have a lot of time on the bikes, they have been tested in very rough conditions by the bike magazines, as well as racing the full 24s hours of glen helen, and we have never had any swingarm problems whatsoever.

but of course any CRF150 chassis bike, will fall under Hondas recall of that part and be replaced accordingly.
I am sure Honda will handle any situation with thier parts or products well, and we have always gone beyond what Honda OEM does in customer support..
