gear 2-3

has anyone noticed a hard shifting spot on the 06 and 07 models i believe it is between 2nd and 3rd gear so is this common or what because it just seems harder to shift?

The Kawis ain´t exactly slick shifting... Although they got better with each year. For example the 07 got a new shift drum.

I´ve never ridden an -06, but I´ve ridden some 07 and 08´s. They are a bit notchy by nature, and kind of "klonks" in to gear if you shift under full power.

But it´s not really a big problem, and I never miss any shifts or anything...

Maybe you can test a friends bike to get a feel for if it´s normal or not.

The shifting is changed again for 09, I hope that it´s even better than previous models.

yeah i have an 07 so yeah i thought i read it was normal somewhere so yeah thanks

Hey guys i have the same thing a 07 kx250f and im finding it extremely difficult to shift from 2-3 any help at all ?

Go with a different oil. I like the Klotz oil. Bike shifts like butter with that. I just got a new 2013 kawi and havent tried it in that yet. But in my CRF it made a world of difference!

Have an 07 and no issues

How many hrs you have on the bike and what type oil are you using?

      As close to new as I'd imagine you'd get! I bought the bike brand new, I'm older and have taken extremely good care of this bike. Very little use and is COMPLETELY stock - everything is original. 
      Comes with the title, original book and map couplers for the fuel injection.
      $4700 - cash

      Just thought maybe everyone could post up there youtube channels an we could all help eachother out by subscribing to one another.
      Heres mine ill sub back asap.
      This has been fun in other sections of TT, so I'll start the thread here and see if we can keep it going.
      Let us know what kind of mods, fixes, changes, etc.., you performed today, or just general fun you had with, your KX250F.
      I'll start with.. I installed a correct for my weight Race Tech shock spring, along with a Pivot Works shock spring thrust bearing. Also cleaned out all the nasty yellow plastic/wax crap that passes for grease in the lower shock bearing, and re-lubed it with Bel Ray waterproof.

      Time for a top end on my bike, just wondering if there are any alternative Valve springs i can use. I have PC cams and $400 for just the springs and retainers is alil costly at the moment.
