It was a great first dirt bike, but was now taking up garage space. I was riding it only to justify my still having it. The one time I loaned it to friends they couldn't start it. My loss of love for it was its power was lacking. Once I got a taste of the YZ426 power and learned not to fear it, the KLX became a tad boring. Bye KLX .... BTW, 1997 KLX, running fine and no issues, a few common mods, not pretty, but intact, went for $1700. I bought it 2+ years ago for $2400, Grrrrrr!
