250 info!

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody! Need some information on 250 4 strokes. What is the most reliable one? (most time in between rebuilds) thanks for any help!

They're all pretty much the same. There's a few bad apples like the first couple of RMZ/KXF's or even a few Honda's that ate valves but if you're looking for reliablity, a 250f is not the way to go.

I had a ktm 250f. The thing has original valves and bottom end. It eats up pistons and needs them replaced every 40 hours. Valves Checked every 10-15 hours. And other than that 250fs are the best bike you can buy, they have a good amount of power. handle really well and the up keep is not all that bad. I currently have a 450 that doubles those figures. Engine work is not all that bad as most make it out to be. I did a top-end in close to the same time as it took to do my 2 stroke. They just get bad rep because of some goons who are clueless on how to change their oil and filter.

Thanks guys, any thought on the 250x? I will be getting a 450, but the 250 will be for my girlfriend, Want to stay in the 250 4stroke class for her.

X would be perfect. I owned a crf450x and loved it. If I ever bought another 4 stroke I would get a crf x.

Definitely best to do your research before you buy. Its not a good feeling going out to your garage and saying "hmm maybe I should of started with a different bike". That just means way more money in the long run.
