Question Tips and tricks of old CR's??

     

Hi all

Need some help with a Honda CR125 1983 model.

Any Problems and Cons on the 1993 and 1993 CR125?

I have manuals of CR250 92-01, will they work for my CR250 "89?

(Yes i have 4 x 2strokes ( but only my 250 "99 is running)

And where can manuals that's legit be downloaded?

If you have some free one's it will also be appreciated!

From what I can recall the 89 model isn't that far removed from the newer steelies so your 92-01 manual should have a majority of the pertinent info for your 89. I have had the best success finding manuals on tradebit.com

I had the first 89 model in Austalia. It was Imported from the USA. I was only young, but I don't remember any bad points.
Mine was totally stock, straight off the show room floor and raced the following day. 1st 9 races I got 9 from 9 hole shots. Might be why I don't have any bad memories lol.

First 250 with the upside down forks. 88 was the first with the "low boy pipe". Great era for Honda.

In 88 at my first race meet, ever other bike in the gates was Green. By the end of 89, they were all Red.
The bloke I hole shotted 9 times straight was our regional champ. He offered me what it owed me, cash on the spot. I had mine in August 88. No one else could get one at that time.
I was working at the shop. A 125, 250, and 500 were ordered to go on the show room floor, for display only at that time. By the end of the first day my boss gave up and let me have it. I was actually the last person to pay for my pre order.

Went to the bank before it closed, withdrew 10K. Had to bot the $$ for the Taxi home from mum lol.
Picked it up Saturday morning, ran it in that arvo. Had to push it about 10Ks to get to my mates place on the Sunday morning. Left home at around 5, got to his place around 7. Too young to get a license, Piss head neglectful mother. Money was no substitute. She ran a Pub. Only one in town.

On the way to the track he was telling me I won't have a chance of beating him and I'd be used as a berm.
I thought he was just taking the piss about me being used as a berm.
I had white plates, everyone else had green. I had White and flo red boots.
Never been in a starting gate in my life, never raced. Got the hole shot though.
After my first race. My side plates and boots had tyre marks on them LOL. I got a bit more aggressive in the 2nd moto.
Beat o'l mate 3 out of 3 races.

Some of my best memories. Ahhh, to be young again.

Rant over.

The 89 motor is totally different than the 92-01. The 89 has the older HPP powervalve. I've never worked on one, but that powervalve has an awful lot of parts and are notoriously difficult to work on. You're going to want to get the 89 manual.

Heard too about the differences starting the '92 models. Correct manual for '89 should be a good investment.
