my new project

I just picked up another project bike.. Its an 82 KX250,I got it for $200,it had been sitting in a garage for years,because it stopped firing... I put a cdi box on it,cleaned the carb,threw in a new plug,drained and flushed all the oil and added fresh..Crossed my fingers,and she fired up on the first kick!!! It runs great,and doesnt look to bad just needs freshened up... I cant get enough of these old Kawi 2smokers..:lol:




And here is my other project its an 82 KX80


I didn't think they had front disc's in 82.

82 was the first year,for front discs on the kx250...The KX80 still has drums..

Hey, all right. Congratulations. Where did you steal it out from under me (I mean FIND IT, sorry about that)? :lol::p

Oddmore,,I mean Ardmore,Al. lol... I was told about it from some friends,they said it was a 125 and the guy wanted $500,ended up being a 250 for $200.. I was stoked..

the 82 80 brings back memories, that was my first bike. keep us updated on them!!!

I sure will..

Ah, Ardmore. I have been there several times, mostly for the Chinese food and lottery tockets. :lol:

Keep us updated on the project.

nice project bike, good luck with it!

Dude, definately make a new thread when you start working on that! :lol: Can't wait......we need some new entertainment.

Yeah,I was going to trade it,to get my brother a 4wheeler,but I just decided to keep the bike..I just cant bring my self to get rid of it...I may just give him the kx80 when its finished.

      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.
