Building a new-age Honda CR250 two-stroke from the ground up is a lot like going on a treasure hunt. You have a weather-worn map to direct you, but the hunt could quickly turn into an Indiana Jones adventure
at any given moment. No matter, you are compelled to risk it all in search of
hidden treasure. Of course, you can always fall back on the old-timers, the grizzled prospectors from the two-strokes days, to give you tips and advice. Plus,
the path you must follow is not untrodden—many have come before you, each
one leaving a breadcrumb trail to guide you on your journey. One such intrepid CR250 adventurer is Jeremy Wilkey, the suspension guru of the Midwest.
Jeremy’s trek to CR250 nirvana involved a little bit of luck, some misfortune,
hard-earned experience and considerable ingenuity.
Come with us now as we follow MX-Tech’s Jeremy Wilkey on his quest to
build the perfect Honda CR250 two-stroke.
