MOTO HACK: Customizing Outdated Parts of XR250 Motard into Modern Style for Comfortable Rides!

Customized Motorcycle

Introducing the custom motorcycles that have been submitted to the Webike Community "MOTO HACK Custom Motorcycle Contest" campaign!

Meet the custom motorcycle of Den-o who rides the XR250 Motard.

Motorcycle and self-introduction

31 years of motorcycle experience, owned more than 20 motorcycles (in a trade-in to transit loop)


The XR250 Motard was purchased for 100% commuting use.

Customization of the particulars

The aim is to upgrade each part and make a comfortable commuter motorcycle while keeping the OEM look.

[Points that I think are cool]

I aimed for a comfortable commuting experience, and I think the functions and appearance of this product are satisfactory.
(For commuting use, but not for box installation.)

[Points of change in performance]
(1) Quick engine start for commuting
(2) Visibility of blinkers
(3) Ride without fear even in the rain
(4) Non-aggressive exhaust sound

Custom Points

[AI removal]
Necessary for smooth engine starting and riding
Recently, the temperature has been dropping, but the engine starts OK with one shot using the choke lever.

[Small size indicator LED]
Good visibility

WALENS or Unbreakable Lens (Blinker)
LED Bulb (T10 Amber 24 bulbs)

[OHLINS rear suspension + radial tires]
No more fear of riding in the rain.


DELTA Exhaust System + MUGEN Exhaust Pipe]
An exhaust system that won't disturb the neighbors

DELTA Exhaust System + MUGEN Exhaust + Low Noise Restrictor

Customization that I want to do in the future

  • Tubeless spoked wheels (the best would be a wheel like the rear wheel of the Serow)
  • If there is a black headlight of the new CRF250L, I want to divert it.


In hindsight, the air-cooled single-cylinder 250cc is a valuable motorcycle. It is also a fun custom to make it easier to ride in a modern way by replacing parts that have been outdated over the years.

Thank you, Den-o, for participating in our custom motorcycle contest. You will receive 500 points to use at Webike for introducing your custom motorcycle!
