shipping alone is going to cost you a fortune from the states, is it not ?, lol.

What do you need? International shipping is going to be $$$.

Dealerships in the states don't have a whole lot for the old 250's anymore, and prices on what they do have are high as hell too.

I have a parts bike in the yard, but it's not pretty.

What parts do you need? I'm in the UK, still miles away but don't mind getting a price on shipping for you.

That one we have is about an 86 isn't it Sam ? Thinking about it though it only 2wd if I remember correctly. Some parts may be interchangeable though, not really in to the 250's. I may have another one as well, can't remember. :blush:

I think there all 2wd up until about '89.
85 to 87 are all pretty much the same parts wise according to the manual, most parts are interchangeable.
The one we have I can't be sure on an exact year but it's definitely an 85 to 87.

'85-'87 is all they made for the 2wd trx250 utility in the states here.

then in '86 Honda came out with the trx350 fourtrax 4x4. in 1988, honda started producing the trx300fw, bigest seller of all time.

Thanks shady. I have seen somewhere an 88 TRX250, just wondering if that was an error or if that was its year of sale rather than the year it was manufactured. Wonder if they continued sales of them here for longer?

you'll guys on the other side the ponds could have model years we don't have over here , have heard where the 350 was available in Canada a couple of years after it was discontinued here in the States , and the 300 4x4 in 1989 was not available here in the US , but was available else where

by Honda, '87 was the last year they made the trx250 back then. now, it's common for other places other than usa to have new models ?, like Canada sells the old trx350 up until '93 I think it was ?, but that won't help you when you walk into a dealership up there, and tell them you need parts for it ?, because they will not find parts listed for that year/make ?!, they can only go back as far as 1989 trx350D foreman.

Names also change about over here, they seem to just put "Foreman, Big Red or Fourtrax" on anything that takes their fancy at the time. I've seen all those on 350D's.

Big Red floats around in different markets , a Big Red to me will always be the ATC250ES ( three wheeler )
The name tags are funny aren't they, a Big Red to me is always an early 300 fourtrax.
