Updated water impeller 05 kx 250

Recommended Posts

The replacement impeller I bought for my 05 kx looks like it will be more efficient. I was worried it was wrong part at first, but part numbers line up. It appears to be same dimensions......IMG_0788.jpg

Supposedly bike may have been Michael Byrnes. Maybe a practice bike of his. Bike has pro Circuit everything. I’m pretty sure old impeller is stock but who knows. Like a dummy I broke off one of the fins.

I think I have one of stewies old pipes without the added skin. For sure an old burner pipe. Mag side case...Anyway...

Here are some pics. Mag side case and pro circuit motor are not on the bike now. Trying my stock pipe and stock motor currently. I also blew pc motor, needs a cylinder walls recoated I believe. Sucked in a bunch of sand at worcs sand hollow race.

Pc link,pc foot pegs, pc works kit suspension, pc throttle tubes, pc motor, pc pipes no part number.

It does not have water pump tabs so I don’t know if it was a factory bike. Bike was built by mike hooker before he left pc. I have paperwork on that.

Pipes have no part numbers and I didn’t include pipe pic with m stamped on it. You can see one with an s stamp and another with 05 kx stamp.IMG_0791.jpgIMG_0793.jpgIMG_0794.jpgIMG_0795.jpgIMG_0796.jpgIMG_0798.jpgIMG_0800.jpgIMG_0802.jpg

COOL. Thanks for posting those. You have some really nice parts. I have seen the brassy looking brazing on the factory (non normal customer) pipes. Really cool.

 

I have tried to gather some parts over the years. The only non store bought part I have is a carbon fiber / titanium silencer. Whoever had it before put some small numberplate sticker on it that says "259". Odd.

Ahh very cool about the silencer. One of the pics is if a standard pc pipe. I took a pic of wrong one.

I got it off eBay years ago on a Buy It Now. The guy had an aluminum regular one and that one. He didn't know what he had. It took me a little while to figure out what it might have been. After buying it and getting it in my hands, THEN I asked questions. :) He said his friend got it from some pro racer. LOL :lol:

 

I finally found that sticker kit this spring on eBay. I had waited years for it to show up. The same guy had some Kawasaki gold-ish brazed pipes, but wanted $500 or $550, couldn't do it.

 

I have the standard Works pipe on mine. It is definitely a run and gun fun powerband. Smooth and wide it ain't. :)
