Recommended Posts

Should I spend all my money on a 2009 kx250f for $2,600 or should I get a 2007 rmz250 for $2,000

I own 2 2009 KX250f and they are a blast to ride,  but very fragile engines, I had to rebuilt both bikes ,one was stollen right after the rebuilt and the 2nd one  after 20 hrs needed a new top end. then I got a 2011 RMZ 250 same thing had to rebuild the top end then Tranny start getting funny. My suggestion, stay away from the RMZ's  mostly reliability reasons. The KXF still a gamble.

For that year I will suggest a 2008 and up Honda CRF 250r, the bikes are slightly more reliable and engine pats are cheaper. Or as mentioned above go get a 2 stroke because a 2007 or 2009 4 stroke bike it will need a top end or even worse whole engine rebuilt. Most of the people do the top end but very rare the bottom end.

Good Luck
