kx125 setup

I :confused: hare scambles and I was woudering what kind of Suspension and and tires I should have . what kind of rinding gear should I have? thank you

suspension should be fairly soft, so i few clicks out, tyres need to hook up well so just make sure they have loots of grip, research tyres to see which type grip best for the type of terrain, wear usuall riding gear motocross boots, pants, top etc make sure your well protected, all motocross gear should do the job.

Set-up depends on the conditions. Are you riding in the desert, woods, mountains, sand, mud, rocks? Is it hot or cold, dry or rainy? Is the course all rooty wood trails, heavily whooped, rocky, does it include a motocross portion?

Determining the answers to these questions will help you decide what you need, like sand tires for sand, ventilated riding gear for high temperatures, cushy suspension settings for roots, etc...

A few things I would suggest:

A hydration system. Dehydration will end your riding in a very bad way.

In cool weather, if you're comfortable while standing around the truck, you'll be too hot when riding.

Bark Busters are a must. Not only will they protect your levers in the event of a crash, possibly preventing a DNF, they can also save your fingers from getting pinched off by the levers if you hit a tree. And you WILL crash. Always prepare for the inevitable crash.

I refuse to ride without a chest protector. If you tangle with another bike, a chest protector just might save your life by keeping you from getting stabbed by bars or levers.

You can't be too anal when prepping your bike. That one bolt that you ignore is the one that will fall out and end your day.

Run tear-offs or roll-offs, or both. Tossing your goggles because they got too muddy IS NOT an option unless you like risking losing an eyeball to roost.

Ride your own pace. Race the course, not the other bikes. Trying to run with riders that are beyond your skill level will get you hurt.

Thank you guys for the Information that helps alot

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 kx 250 2 stroke and it wont start.  it only backfires.  I was out riding it one day and came up to a stop so the bike was just idling and it started to try and die so i revved it up a few times then let it die and now it wont start back up.  It only pops or backfires when you kick it.  Its getting good spark and i just put a brand new plug and coil in it. I took the reeds apart and they look like they're brand new.  It was running great before so i dont know what happened.  Im thinking it could be a fuel problem even tho the plug is a little wet if you take it out after a bunch of kicking.  Any help would be greatly appreciated

      Alright, found three bikes all located where i live in Texas. I know they're all very different, but if you could tell me what you think each bike is worth, and which one would be the best deal. Thanks.
      Notes: Both 2 strokes have new top ends. I think the front brake lever is broken on the kawasaki.
      KX250 2002 $800-$1000?

      YZ125 2000 $1250

      KTM 400SX 2002 $1200

      So I'm at a bit of a cross roads, I currently own a 06 rm250 and I love it. I also have a 02 kx250 which I'm selling with intent to buy a newer two stroke. I can't afford a newer ktm and the older ones aren't that great and kawasaki never impressed me. so I'm stuck between 06 yz250 and 05 cr250. I've heard the yz and rm after 06 are almost the same bike just the Suzuki handles better and the Yamaha has better suspension. So I'm not sure if I wanna buy carbon copy of my bike with slight differences. That's why I'm interested in a cr250 I heard the 02+ models RC valves are shit garbage but was mostly fixed in the 05-07 models. I ride at a track and at some bogs down the road from me. So from people who have owned both, what would you recommend. I know the cr is known for a hard hitting power band which I enjoy since im an aggressive rider. Should i just see which deal comes my way first.
