2014 KX250F Make over

Recommended Posts

Hello all, its been a while since I posted, felt sort of twitch today, so I thought I would post a visual story of the journey with my KX250f.  

I purchased this bike off a guy who had NO BUSINESS owning it.  Rode it on the street (bald tires), plastics were completely jacked up, seat was barely hanging on.  The topper was that it wouldn't start.  So...I got the bike for a REALLY good deal.  I always wanted a KX, so I had to jump on it.  

Mechanically, the intake values were WAY off, thus it not starting.  While I was tearing into the bike, I went a head and replaced the piston, all seals, etc.  The crank and bearings were good.  Along with the complete cleaning, I wanted to bike to look amazing when it was done.  I always find myself not only reviving a bike from it's bitter end, but I make it look so nice, that I consider never riding it!  Yea, I know, I have a problem.  None the less, it got a ton of cosmetic upgrades, etc.  Thanks for everyone who helped me through the process.  Especially, my family and particularly, my son JP who is learning more and more about motocross.  

I am completely in love with the DCorVisuals Lights Out graphic kit.  The matte finish looks so amazing....Thanks Jeff N. for working with me on getting this kit made for my bike.  

I did the best I could in ordering the pics in the chronological order...the first 2 are showing the bike to me while I was talking with the seller.  Cheers!!!  If you have any questions, please post them here and I will try to answer them as quickly as I can.

Looks Good!!! Diggin the matte graphics as well. This clutch cover would set it off though, also maybe a black ignition cover or cover protector like Polisport makes.

Hey, iI had almost the same with my bike......I'm at the end, only left to redone my front brake.

I have one question, how did you recover the aluminum frame/swingarm - it looks very nice?

Thanks for the compliment.  I stripped everything down to just frame and swingarm.  I then used Simple Green and a pressure washer to clean everything.  The next day, I used Napa Aluminum Brightner.  It makes the aluminum looks brand new!  

If you really want to go crazy, you can then use mother alum polish to give it a mirror finish.  I did this step on my 07 CR125...check out my other posts, I have pics.
