OverviewEdit

 
Picture of a 1985 Suzuki DR250

A 250cc enduro type dirt bike, the DR250 was made in both street legal and enduro models from 1982 till 1985 skipping 1984. A manual kick start on the right side of the bike shows its leanings more towards dirt bikes than street bikes. 5-speed manual transmission. The Suzuki DR-250 shares a nearly identical design with the DR350 aside from the piston size and related hardware, and as such, many people upgrade theirs with larger cylinders meant for the DR350. There have also been big bore kits which allow the stock cylinder to reach a larger size than 350cc. The oddly shaped headlight and small number plate are the bike's less attractive points, but the bike has adjustable front and rear suspension, which allows the owner to tune the bike for dirt, trail, or street riding.

The engine was a air cooled single cylinder, four-stroke. A 72.0mm bore x 61.2mm stroke result in a displacement of just 249.0 cubic centimeters. Fuel was supplied via a overhead cams (ohc).

DriveEdit

ChassisEdit

It came with a 3.00-21 front tire and a 4.00-18 rear tire. Stopping was achieved via single disc in the front and a expanding brake in the rear. The DR250S was fitted with a 2.51 Gallon (9.50 Liters) fuel tank.
