Default CR250. How much is it worth?

     

Hi Everyone. I have a 1999 CR250 and looking to swap or sell it for a Suzuki DR350 here in the UK. How much do you think the CR in good condition is actually worth? Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Russ.

Not sure what its worth in your neck of the woods, but as far as the overall reviews of the bike here's a few things I would consider: This is a great engine. The '92-'01 engines were VERY good with a few coming with better carbs and port timing than others. They are very reliable and make very good peak power. However, the first gen ('97-'99) aluminum chassis were not quite as great. They are heavy and definitely a "first try" at aluminum frames. The second-gen was better ('00-'01) and third gen ('02-'07) was THE ticket, but the engine was not quite up to par with the frame.
The second major issue to consider is the condition of the bike (of which we have no information). How many hours on the top end? Bottom end? Has the cylinder ever been mic'd? Re-nikasiled? How are the usual wear-and-tear items (chain, sprockets, chain guide, chain slider, fork seals, tires, grips, wheel bearings, etc.) How is the general maintenance? (how often were oil changes performed? Air filter cleanings/re-oiling? Spokes tightened? Cables lubed? Fork/shock oil changed? Have the linkage bearings been re-greased?)
I'd look at a few bikes in your market, see where your bike sits in these categories in comparison to those, and price accordingly.
