1985 HONDA 250R 4-WHEELER
— Converting a ATC250R into a quad —
When the 1985 Suzuki Quadracer 250 came out it instantly won our shootout between Honda’s ATC250R, Kawasaki’s Tecate 250 and Yamaha’s Tri-Z250. At that point everyone knew that Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha would have to come out with 250cc, 2-stroke quads too. While waiting a year for that to happen, 3 to 4 wheel conversion kits became available. The Dirt Wheels crew got a hold of one and turned a ATC250R into a quad. Below is the full test as it appeared in our September 1985 issue.
