When did they stop making Honda XR 250?
XR 500 / XR 500R – 1980 Honda XR 500A Introduced in 1979, the twin-shock Honda XR 500 was the first “XR” model. The engine was a four-stroke, four-valve, 497 cc (30.3 cu in) “Pentroof” engine. The bike had a conventional 18″ rear wheel but an unusual 23″ front wheel which was supposed to be better for riding over potholes and ruts.
- The 23″ size proved unpopular and did not catch on as the wheel/tyre assembly was heavy, and there was little choice of replacement 23″ tyres.
- In 1981 Honda introduced ‘Pro-Link’ models, with rising-rate single-shock rear suspension, a 17″ rear wheel and a 21″ front wheel.
- Unusual for a four-stroke with its typical intake and exhaust valves, the 1981 and 1982 XR-500 utilized a six-petal reed valve set-up between the carburetor and the intake valves.
This was intended to provide better low-end performance while still allowing a large carburetor to be used. The 1982 XR 500RC was very similar to the 1981 RB apart from decal and trim changes.1982 Honda XR 500RC 1984 Honda XR 500RE (with hand protectors removed) The 1983 XR500R was thoroughly revised with a new dry-sump RFVC 5-speed engine which was lighter and more powerful than the older engine.
Induction was by 2 carburetors, the first in use until 1/4 throttle, whereupon the second started to take effect. Power was 41hp @6000 rpm, torque was 4.7 kg-m (34 lb-ft) at 5500 rpm, and dry weight was 266.7lbs. The frame was entirely revised, and suspension was updated with 43mm air-adjustable forks with 11″ of suspension travel both front and rear.
Wheels were 21″ front and 17″ rear. The fuel tank had a 12 litre capacity, the front brake was a single hydraulic disc, and the handlebars sported plastic ‘bark-buster’ hand protectors. The 1984 XR500RE model was the last 500cc XR, being superseded in 1985 by the larger Honda XR 600RF.

The Honda CR250R was a Honda racing dirt bike, The prototype was built in 1971, but it was not until late 1972 that production of the 1973 model “out of the box racers” began sale to the general public. The CR250 was produced for nearly 37 years, 2007 being the final year of production.
- In 1997, Honda produced an industry first, an aluminum chassis for a motocross motorcycle.
- These ‘first gen’ frames were thick, rigid, and were a big change from the previous steel frames, where flexibility had been seen as a problem in the early years.
- The 1997-8 engines were equipped with a new stator, which supplied DC voltage for the new Keihin carburetor with an electronic ‘Power Jet’ system, in efforts to control lean mixture preignition.
Included in the new electrics was a capacitor and a rectifier/regulator. The 1999 model was almost identical but the Power Jet had disappeared. For 2000, the ‘second gen’ aluminum frame was less rigid, with thinner twin-spars, providing a rigidity decrease and better handling.
The Keihin PWK carburetor replaced earlier PJ models. The CDI box limited RPMs to 8000. The 2001 model was nearly identical, with a change to a different CDI box, adding 500 RPM to the redline where two more horsepower lurked. The new Mikuni TMX carburetor proved to be temperamental to weather changes.
For 2002, Honda ended the outstanding interchangeability that had existed from 1992~2001, when a completely new engine arrived with a change from cylinder reed induction to an engine case reed induction system and an electronically controlled, cable operated RC valve in place of the centrifugally operated exhaust valve system used since 1992.
- A TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) was added to the carburetor, powered by a new stator.
- The ECM would now be able to retard ignition timing to preclude preignition, though there was no ping sensor anywhere.
- The third & final generation of the CR250 aluminum chassis also made its appearance, which was thinner, with better flex properties.
The same engine & chassis, with minor suspension & plastics changes, continued on until production of this 2-stroke stopped in 2007. Although the case reed engine has potentially the best design, it was never developed to its full potential by Honda, as the industry attention rapidly turned to four stroke engine development.

How fast is a F12 tornado?
The original Fujita Scale actually goes up to F12. An F12 tornado would have winds of about 740 MPH, the speed of sound. Roughly 3/4 of all tornadoes are EF0 or EF1 tornadoes and have winds that are less than 100 MPH. EF4 and EF5 tornadoes are rare but cause the majority of tornado deaths. Several levels of damage (EF1 to about EF3) are visible in the photograph above. It was puzzling initially how some homes could be nearly destroyed while a home nearby or in between was left with only light damage. One possible explanation is shown below, Some big strong tornadoes may have smaller more intense “suction vortices” that spin around the center of the tornado. Tornado researchers have actually seen the pattern shown at right scratched into the ground by the multiple vortices in a strong tornado. The sketch above shows a tornado located SW of a neighborhood. As the tornado sweeps through the neighborhood, the suction vortex will rotate around the core of the tornado. The homes marked in red would be damaged severely. The others would receive less damage. Remember that there are multiple suction vortices in the tornado, but the tornado diameter is probably larger than shown here. Air motions inside tornadoes are complex and difficult to study directly. Wind motions in a fairly weak tornado. T he winds would also be spinning in addition moving upward as shown here, This tornado is a little stronger. This tornado is even stronger. The air in the center has started to sink (this is called vortex breakdown), but the sinking air doesn’t reach the ground. The diameter of the tornado has also grown. It is when the sinking air in the middle reaches the ground that multiple vortices may form. You’ll find lots of tornado videos online. One that we often show in the classroom version of this course is a tornado that occurred in Pampa, Texas (here are a couple of videos on YouTube: video 1, video 2 ).
What is the highest power tornado?
A map of the tornado paths in the 1974 Super Outbreak This article lists various tornado records, The most “extreme” tornado in recorded history was the Tri-State tornado, which spread through parts of Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana on March 18, 1925.
It is considered an F5 on the Fujita Scale, even though tornadoes were not ranked on any scale at the time. It holds records for longest path length at 219 miles (352 km), longest duration at about 3½ hours, and it held the fastest forward speed for a significant tornado at 73 mph (117 km/h) anywhere on Earth until 2021.
In addition, it is the deadliest single tornado in United States history with 695 fatalities. It was also the third most costly tornado in history at the time, but has been surpassed by several others non-normalized. When costs are normalized for wealth and inflation, it still ranks third today.
- The deadliest tornado in world history was the Daulatpur–Saturia tornado in Bangladesh on April 26, 1989, which killed approximately 1,300 people.
- In the history of Bangladesh at least 19 tornadoes killed more than 100 people each, almost half of the total for the rest of the world,
- For 37 years, the most extensive tornado outbreak on record, in almost every category, was the 1974 Super Outbreak, which affected a large area of the central United States and extreme southern Ontario in Canada on April 3 and April 4, 1974.
Not only did this outbreak feature 148 tornadoes in only 18 hours, but an unprecedented number of them were violent; 7 were of F5 intensity and 23 were F4. During the peak of this outbreak there were 16 tornadoes on the ground at the same time. More than 300 people, possibly as many as 330, were killed by tornadoes during this outbreak.
Is a Honda XR250 a full sized bike?

What is the valve clearance on a XR250 tornado?
Hello, I’m hoping to find advice/help for checking the valve clearances on my Tornado 250. I’ve got the feeler gauges ready to go, and I think it’s an easy procedure. But I’ve never done it, and I can’t find any information. except I think the clearances should be: intake,12mm exhaust,14mm (or,16mm?) The “certified Honda mechanic” (at a brand new dealership where I live in SE mexico) says he’ll just “listen to the engine”.
I talked to him about using feeler gauges to check the valve clearances and he looked at me like I’m nuts. I think he doesn’t want to, or maybe doesn’t know how to check the valve clearances properly. I’d do it myself if I could find any information on how to do it. Any help is appreciated, thanks! Steven ps- my tornado has 18.000 km and runs pretty good.
The valves have never been checked.

How much does a XR250 weigh kg?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Honda XR250R and XR250L are trail and dual-sport motorcycles made by Honda from 1979 through 2004, as part of the Honda XR series, They have four-stroke, SOHC four-valve 249 cc (15.2 cu in) single-cylinder engines, In 1981, the XR250 was updated with a single rear shock,
The tire size was 80/100-21 front and 100/100-18 rear. It had 13–48 tooth gearing and a stock top speed of around 66 mph at 8000 rpm. The XR250L was a heavier, street-legal version which was introduced in 1991 and should not be confused with the older XL250R.
That said the ‘F’ shares little more with the XR than it being a great starter play bike, 4 valve head, and an air cooled low maintenance bike. They are a different thing all together with the ‘F’ fuel injected, limited to 9.8″ of travel, lower seat height by 2″, electric start, and a 5-speed transmission.
The engine has a four-valve head with splayed rocker arms to actuate the valves. Unusual for a single-cylinder engine, it has a two-into-one header pipe. Throughout its production, the R version is kickstart only, has a six-speed transmission with chain final drive, and has stator ignition,
For the pre-1996 models, the suspension travel was 280 mm (11 in) front and rear. The XR250R is the enduro (competition) model; however, the L version is electric start, (except for the USA market XR250L, which never had electric start and which was discontinued after the 1996 model year), with pillion pegs, softer suspension and lower seat height.
The changes between 1996 and 2004 consisted of decal updates, the mechanical parts being identical. The XR250R was discontinued after 2004. In Australia a XR250Y was released with upside-down forks and electric start in 05-06. The 1991 Honda XR250L is the most sold of the entire XR series with more than 814,00 units being sold.
Why are Honda XR so good?
Honda Reliability – Just the name “Honda” has long since become a byword for reliability and the XR650L is really one of the reasons for this. Honda built this bike to last a very, very long time. The air-cooled engine, durable frame, and basic suspension components make it one of the most reliable bikes you can get requiring very little maintenance.
What does XR mean in Honda?
The Honda XR is a series of four-stroke dirt bikes produced from 1979 onward. The models with an “R” suffix were the competition enduro models, typically not street-legal from the factory, while the “L” models were the street-legal dual-sports. The first XR model was the twin-shock 1979 XR500; the liquid-cooled XR650R — aka “Big Red Pig” — would earn a cult following as one of the greatest open-class enduros of all time; and the air-cooled, street-legal XR650L is still available with the same specifications as the 1991 model! Even in stock trim, most Honda XR models are already capable off-road machines.

What is the top speed of the 2000 XR250R?
Top Speed. The Honda XR250R top speed is 66 mph.
What is the highest speed of 250cc?
Is A 250cc Motorcycle Suitable For Beginner Riders? – Yes. In general, a complete novice can ride the majority of 250cc motorcycles with ease. Most 250cc motorbikes have a max velocity of roughly 80 mph, which is suitable for riders with small stature or inexperience and won’t overwhelm them.
Not to mention that these bikes are a fun size to ride and quite lightweight, making them perfect for any new rider.
How many gears does a 250R have?
Honda CBR250R was available with a 249.60 cc Liquid Cooled, 4 Stroke, DOHC, SI Engine that was paired to a 6-speed gearbox.
What is the top speed of a 2023 250R?
The top speed of CRF250R is about 60-70 mph.
Has there ever been 300 mph wind?
The usual caveats – Of course, this list does not purport to be a list of the highest surface winds ever to have occurred in recent Earth history. They are only the highest known wind gusts captured by a reliable anemometer that managed to survive the conditions.
Of course, it should also be noted that hurricane-hunting aircraft have measured higher winds while investigating Category 5 tropical storms in the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean basins. Christopher C. Burt Weather Historian KUDOS: To Jeff Masters, who researched the wind events at St.

Can you run faster than a tornado?
Do not try to outrun the tornado – While it may be tempting to try and outrun a tornado, this is not a wise choice. A tornado’s path can change in an instant, sometimes switching directions at random. You could be driving away from a tornado when it suddenly charges down your path. The day they arrived in Oklahoma to begin filming, most of the “Twister” cast, including star Bill Paxton, went storm chasing with NOAA researchers participating in the VORTEX field project designed to study tornadoes like this one. Though the cast didn’t see any tornadoes that day, VORTEX scientists took measurements of this one that occurred June 2, 1995, south of Dimmitt, Texas. (NSSL / NOAA)

How fast does a 250cc Honda CBR go?
The 249.5 cc (15.23 cu in) CBR250R was made from 2011 to 2013 for all Honda markets except Japan and Malaysia, where production continued after 2013. Originally intended primarily for the Thai and Indian markets, the 250R was sold worldwide, including in developed countries in Europe, North America and elsewhere.
How fast is a Honda xr200r?
Top speed & horsepower – The top speed of a stock XR200 is about 60 mph on flat ground, but that number doesn’t mean a whole lot unless you’re drag racing. Since it only has about 12 HP at the rear wheel, you’re not going to win many races, but that’s not what makes this bike so good.
Is the Honda 250r a 2 stroke?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Honda TRX250R was a sport ATV manufactured by Honda between 1986 and 1989. It combined a lightweight frame and good handling with a liquid-cooled two-stroke engine and six-speed close-ratio transmission. Although only being manufactured for four years, the “250R”, as it was known, was long a primary choice for ATV racers until the resurgence of factory involvement and usage of four-stroke engines in sport ATV’s beginning in 2003 and 2004.
