1997-2001 Honda CR250 – Water Pump Service And Repair

0
What Are The Signs Of A Bad Water Pump? Your water pump is located at the front of your crankcase on the right side. Right next to the oil level plug is a tiny opening. The other side of this opening sits between the impeller shaft oil and coolant seals. If you can see oil, coolant, or both coming out of that opening, your water pump is no longer sealed and needs to be repaired. You can change the gasket on your water pump without removing the right crankcase cover. But if you need to change the seals, bearing, or impeller, your right crankcase cover must be removed.

The radiator is the most fragile component of your dirt bike's engine, but it's mounted right behind the fender, so you should inspect it regularly. On 1997 - 1999 models, the radiator is one piece, and on 2000 - 2001 models, the radiator is a two-piece design with hoses connecting each side. This service applies to both types of radiators, as well as pretty much every radiator.

If the clutch on your Honda CR250 is binding when you torque the center bolt, pull the outer and check how far the kickstarter gear is sticking out from the back of the basket. I want to give a huge shoutout to Brian from Georgia for figuring out a problem I didn’t even know existed! Brian was experiencing this binding issue, so I asked him to send me a message on Facebook so we could troubleshoot with pictures and video, and we found the thrust washer was worn out, problem solved, right?
