98 kdx 250 vs. kx 250

Recommended Posts

Hello i was looking around on Craigslist for a dirtbike to replace my rm80. I found a nice 1998 kdx 250 that I think I can get for just under a thousand. I'm soon 15, 5'7 and about 140 lb. I think it's the bike for me cause its more reliable than the kx 250 and its a little less throttle happy. My riding will be mostly trails and the occasional trip to the dunes. I'm open to suggestions about a different bike but my budget is about a thousand. I'm definitely a two stroke guy though. What are the most noticable differences between the kx and the kdx? My brothers thought that a 250 (they have a kx and a cr) race bike would be too much of a handful for me cause I just got rid of my rm and that's the only bike I have ever ridden trails or dunes with. I'm not interested in a 125 because its takes a good bit of money to get it set up for trails

The Kdx 250's, while you can make them great bikes, are big heavy pigs. The engine is a KX 250 with a wide-ratio tranny and a stator for the lights.

Also, I don't think they made a 98 model but I may be wrong about that.
