What years are better?


Recommended Posts

You might want to look into an RMX250 too. They are already set up for the woods (flywheel weight, larger tank, stator, lights, suspension, spark arrestor, etc.). Suzuki brought them into the US from 89 until the late 90s or so, but there are still some very nice ones out there. I recently scored an 89' that's in fantastic, totally stock condition. I love it in the tight stuff and it's plenty fast for the open stuff as well. I would recommend at least checking into them.

Newer is better, my '08 works great in the woods.

After that it's all about condition. The better the condition of the bike the better it'll be, either in the woods or on a track.

RM's had conventional forks up to about '89 (or '88?) and then for 3 years '96, '97, '98.

What years did rm250's have conventional forks? I have one and I think an 03. Not sure of the year model and can't find it on the bike any place.

Look on the steering head on the bike. It will have a SN# and the 10th number or letter will tell you the year. If it is a 01 or newer it will have a number for the year. I.E. 3 will be and 03.

The letters will be an 00 or older Here are the letters that tell the year.

Find the 10th digit B=1981 C=1982 D=1983 E=1984 F=1985 G=1986 H=1987 J=1988 K=1989 L=1990 M=1991 N=1992 P=1993 R=1994 S=1995 T=1996 V=1997 W=1998 X=1999 Y=2000 1=2001 2=2002 3=2003 4=2004 5=2005 6=2006 7=2007 8=2008 9=2009

My RM is an 08. Thank you for the help with that. Most of the mods that I found to give it more low end or a fly wheel weights they make for newer and older but skip the 08. Guess I will just have to ride faster so it doesn't stall or gear it down so it can't. Lol

A FWW made for an '06 should bolt on to a '07 or '08 (same bike ~ different graphics). Although in my opinion my '08 hooks up so well that I just do not see the need for using a FWW. Granted I ride in mostly sandy conditions, hard clay or rocks might change that opinion.
