Put the bike on a stand supporting the bottom of the frame. Remove the seat and sidepanels. Loosen the clamp on the carb to airbox boot at the rear of the carb. Loosen the muffler clamp, remove muffler mounting bolts and pull muffler. Remove the 4 rear subframe bolts. Remove the rear subframe (leave airbox and rear fender assembled in it). You are now staring at a completely exposed rear shock. Remove the shock mount bolts and remove the shock. Measure the spring adjusted length for a future starting point when the spring is put back on. Loosen both spring pre-load adjuster spanner nuts all the way. Helps if you clean the dirt off the threads and use a little lube. Pull the spring towards the spanner nuts and remove the clip ring at the opposite end spring holder. that's it.

How do I change shock spring on a 2004 cr250


Remove your seat, and subframe from the bike, followed by the shock. The shock has a bolt at the top and bottom holding it in place. Remove the shock bolts and remove the shock.
The shock has two locking rings at teh top of the spring. You need to spin the two apart, which you will normally need a hammer and punch to do to get them seperated. Spin the top ring anti closkwise, to loosen it off as much as possible. Then loosen off the second ring and the spring will be free floating.

Loosen off the circlip holding the spring at the bottom of the spring. Once this is off, slip the spring over the shock housing and you are done. Assembly is the reverse process, but be sure to check your sag on teh rear shock once you have re-installed a spring.

Drain gas tank?


Easiest way is to remove the tank and dump it into a fuel can. (Petcock off, dump it from the gas cap)
Also, to drain the carburator, remove the "plug" at the bottom of the bowl.

My rear shock is definately needing rebuild of some sort, the shock is stuck down and i have to hold the rear wheel down and lift the seat to make it go back up. just curious as to what part of the shock...


The spring holds up the weight of the bike.If its stuck down.the main shocky rod is bent or the internals of the shocky are broken,causing it to lock.I don't think its parts but a new unit.Hope this helps

This is a dangerous job if you do not have the proper equipment for compressing the spring that is around the rear shock. I do not recomend performing this job without the proper equipment. Unloading the spring without it compressed can cuase injury.

If you have the proper equipment this is how you do it.

REMOVAL - SHOCK ASSEMBLY NOTE: Access for the nuts attaching the rear shock assembly upper mount to the vehicle is through the inside of the trunk.
  1. Roll back carpeting on top of the rear shock tower to access shock mounting nuts.
  2. Remove plastic cover from the top of the shock assembly.
  3. Remove 2 nuts attaching the shock assembly upper mount/spring seat to the shock tower.
  4. Raise vehicle on jackstands or centered on a frame contact type hoist.
  5. Remove the rear wheel and tire assembly from the vehicle.
  6. Remove two fasteners holding the splash shield to the shock assembly upper mount.
  7. Remove bolt attaching shock absorber to rear knuckle
  8. Remove the shock absorber from the rear knuckle first when removing the shock absorber from vehicle by pushing down on the rear suspension.
  9. Move shock assembly downward and tilt top of shock outward, then remove shock assembly from vehicle through top of wheel opening.
