Trade for yz250x?

Recommended Posts

Ive got a 2017 ktm 250 xc. Good bike but the carb sucks and I don’t like the air fork.

e start is not important to me. Would trading for a 250x be a good idea? Is the suspension worth it?

I have a 17 husky TC250, and have rode the YZ250X and thought it felt great. 

And if you think your carb sucks its because of how you have it set up, my mikuni works GREAT. No opinion on the air forks as I am not running them.

I tried the The stock needles and the JD kit. If the temperature outside changes 10-15 degrees it totally changes the power.  Very annoying. I’ve never had a bike that was that sensitive to minor changes. I am not an expert at tuning carbs but I just have  never felt the bike run crisp.

I own a '16 YZX and love it. However, it would be far cheaper to buy a Keihen Airstriker carb than trade for an X.
Many guys swear by the Lectron carb as well. Sometimes tweaking what you have is better than starting over.
