Hey, I've just bought a new bike. I've been after a 4 stroke for a while. Its got 3 hours use on it and the rider I bought it from has gone up a class to expert so he was selling it to get a 450 or 250 2t. So I bought it as its a new bike for used bike money. I've come off the back of two kx250's a 97 and an 04. Had a ride of a 250 at my local track which is very tight and I fell in love with the smooth power, the torque and the noise. I love the bike already! What I'm looking for in this thread is tips on how to look after it properly, the spares package and Suzuki manual that came with the bike are being posted to me as I speak. This is my first four stroke but I have researched them enough to know about the importance of valve clearances, warming up etc. What else do I need to know? I've heard scary stories about weak gear trains on these bikes, are there any mods or new parts to fit to get rid of this? Do the 08's have any other problems? What is the best engine and clutch oil's to use? The bike has already had the swing arm bearings moly greased, the guy told me that they're not greased from the factory this is a known issue. It has a brand new Dep S7 exhaust fitted, a 52T renthal rear sprocket and Pro Taper high bend bars which suit me. The previous rider was a similar height and weight. All in all I'm very happy so far and can't wait till next Sunday to get it out on the track for a shakedown. Thanks in advance for any info/advice. Kev.
